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 Honor—Griffin's fourth book in the Honor Bound series and the first since 1999—he's got a lot on his hands.
OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan has asked him to set up his own
official-but-really-OSS airline in Argentina, using “loaned” 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.
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 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. Download and start listening now!
