The Traffickersby W E B Griffin
Synopses & Reviews
Griffin's popular Badge of Honor police series returns, with a story of murder and lawlessness as compelling as today's headlines.
J ust as with his remarkable military novels, millions of readers have been captured by the rich characters and vivid realism of W. E. B. Griffin's police dramas. Griffin has the knack, writes The Philadelphia Inquirer. He sets his novel before you in short, fierce, stop-for-nothing scenes. Before you know it, you've gobbled it up.
Homicide Sergeant Matthew Payne is used to murder, but lately there's been an awful lot of it in Philadelphia. A gangland shooting in a popular tourist location has left six dead, most of them innocent bystanders, and days later the body of a headless Latina turns up in the Schuykill River. Everybody assumes they're not related, but Payne can't shake the hunch that there's something more to it and that hunch leads him far from the City of Brotherly Love to the Texas Mexico border. There, he finds a world where the lines of law and order are murkier than he ever imagined possible, and the daily question is O Plato o Plomo? Silver or lead. Cash or death.
Which will Matt Payne take? Or will he just go home, glad to be alive . . . ?
Filled with authentic color and detail, this is a riveting novel of the men and women who put their lives on the line, from the cop on the beat to the commissioner himself. It's a story of fears, dangers, courage, loyalty, and genuine heroism: storytelling at its best.
October 1945. The war is over. The OSS has been disbanded. But for Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, the fight goes on
In the closing months of the war, the U.S. made a secret deal with Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligences Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence on the Soviets and their spies within the U.S. atomic bomb program, Gehlens people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.
Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break loose—and the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. It is up to Frade and company to keep them safe.
But some people have other ideas....
The Presidential Agent adventures return in the most harrowing novel yet in the #1 New York Timesbestselling series.
M exican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President is fed up and has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea—to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and put them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillos guts, has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillos men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding. There are also whispers that the President himself is unstable—the word nutcake” has been mentioned.
How will it all play out? No one knows for sure, but for Castillo and company, only one thing is definite: It will be hazardous duty.
