The crackling new novel in the bestselling Honor Bound series by the number-one "New York Times"--bestselling master of the military thriller. The year is 1943, and Argentina is officially neutral but crawling with every kind of spy, sympathizer, and military official imaginable. The hero is Cletus Frade, a Marine fighter pilot ace recruited as a spy by the Office of Strategic Services. He has strong family ties to Argentina, and in "Death and Honor"-Griffin's fourth book in the series, his first since 1999-Frade has got a lot on his hands. OSS chief "Wild Bill" Donovan has asked him to set up in Argentina his own official-but-really-OSS airline, using "loaned" Lockheed Lodestars. Of even more concern are two interwoven, highly secret German operations. The first is a Nazi scheme for German Jews outside the Fatherland to purchase the freedom of their relatives in concentration camps. The second has to do with where all that dirty money is going: a plan called OPERATION PHOENIX, which will establish safe havens in Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay for senior Nazi officials who fear they've all but lost the war. Needless to say, the OSS is very interested in both operations-which is to say President Franklin Roosevelt is very interested-and Frade must somehow find out a little more . . . without getting killed, that is. And Frade, whose father's murder was ordered by the Nazis, knows that's damn easier said than done. Filled with the special flair that Griffin's fans have long come to expect from him, Death and Honor is another "immensely entertaining adventure" ("Kirkus Reviews") from one of our finest storytellers.

Not Typical Griffin
I am a huge fan of WEB Griffin but this book was too long with multiple thin (very thin) plots, unlike his other stories with multiple plots with more detail. The multiple plots in this book were all very shallow and left me always looking for more detail.
