Read by Scott Brick
The spectacular new book in New York Times-bestselling author W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage.
Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions. To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring-and great danger-but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.
"In this latest installment in Griffin and Butterworth's Honor Bound series, WWII is winding down and Maj. Cletus Frade a citizen of both the United States and Argentina with strong ties to military, political, and business elites in both nations must navigate a convoluted maze of intelligence operations and conflicting agendas to prevent the Germans from creating a sanctuary for Nazis in South America. Narrator Scott Brick dazzles in this audio edition, providing a wide array of international accents and voices for Griffin and Butterworth's characters. Among the many standouts are Frade, who Brick lends a voice that is aristocratic, mysterious, and infused with a touch of bravado, and two German soldiers participating in covert anti-Hitler campaigns. However, listeners new to the series may find themselves struggling to keep up with the book's twisting and turning plot and extensive roster of characters. A Putnam hardcover."
