The crackling new novel in the bestselling Honor Bound
series by the #1 New York Timesâ€“ bestselling master of the
W.E. B. Griffinâ€™s Honor Bound saga of World War II
espionage in Germany and Argentina has long been immensely
popular: â€śEnough derring-do, romance and action to satisfy
Griffinâ€™s legion of fans and bring him new onesâ€ť (Rocky
Mountain News); â€śCletus Fradeâ€™s services to his countries,
his fealty to honor and his courage in the face of danger
lift this thriller right off the bookshelf and onto the
nightstandâ€ť (The Star-Ledger).
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
pilot recruited by the OSS, with strong family ties to
Argentina, and in Death and Honorâ€”Griffinâ€™s fourth book in
the series and the first since 1999â€”heâ€™s got a lot on his
OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan has asked him to set up his own
official-but-really-OSS airline in Argentina,
using â€śloanedâ€ť Lockheed Lodestars and Constellations. Of
even more concern are two interwoven German operations. The
first is a government scheme for Jews outside the
Fatherland to purchase the freedom of their relatives in
concentration camps, who will then be transported to
Argentina and Uruguay. The second has to do with where that
money is going: a plan called Operation Phoenix, which will
establish safe havens for senior Nazi officials in
Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Needless to say, the OSS
is very interested in both of them, and if Frade can
somehow find out a little more . . . without getting
killed, that is. Which, as Frade is about to find out, is
easier said than done.
Rich with the special flair that Griffinâ€™s fans have long
come to expect from him, Death and Honor is
another â€śimmensely entertaining adventureâ€ť (Kirkus Reviews)
from one of our finest storytellers.
