Canidy, Fulmar, and colleagues in the Office of Strategic Services face an even greater task than ever before: to convince Hitler and the Axis powers that the invasion of the European continent will take place anywhere but on the beaches of Nazi-occupied France. 

“Wild Bill” Donovan’s men have several tactics in mind, but some of the people they must use are not the most reliable; they are, in fact, most likely spying for both sides—so the deceptions require layer upon layer of intrigue, and all it will take is one slip to send the whole thing tumbling down like a house of cards. Are the OSS agents up to it? They certainly think so. And then the body is found floating off the coast of Spain.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martin Gall | 12/3/2013

    " Mr. Griffin has a set formula for his books that I like. By including the references to historical figures in his books, it gives the story a fuller feel. The characters are flawed but work well within the stories. I enjoy the The Corps, Presidential Agent and Men at War series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorie | 10/6/2013

    " If you are a real WWII buff, you would enjoy this more than I did. I was hoping for a suspense novel, and it was just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 alex | 7/12/2013

    " I've read all of Griffin's military fiction so far, so of course I have to read this, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave | 4/7/2013

    " The story was good. I could really do without the foul language! I will give Griffin one more chance to see if any of his other books are any better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dad | 3/29/2013

    " While still an interesting book, it drags a little compared to previous of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Richard | 2/7/2013

    " Another typical W.E.B. Griffen book. If you like his books you will like this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Geof Morris | 12/7/2012

    " As with Tom Clancy, you read Griffin for plot and historical allusion rather than character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bette Singleton | 12/5/2012

    " I like Billy Butterwoth's books in general and I did like this one, too. One thing I thought was off was not following through on the radio operator's status. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 7/31/2012

    " Couldn't get into it no matter how much I tried. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/6/2012

    " Good fiction about WWII and the beginning of OSS "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. Thompson | 10/10/2011

    " My hope is that he is grooming Butterworth to take over the series that he started. read this years ago "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 SirPoochala | 10/1/2011

    " slow and dull. very disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill | 5/25/2011

    " Wow, Griffin and Butterworth have discovered the ever-elusive formula for the perfect waste of time:

    390 pp of stale, humorless dialogue

    4 pp of (anti)climax

    28 pp of dreadful denouement "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michael | 4/24/2011

    " I was really surprised how poor the Griffin book was. I couldb't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 3/25/2011

    " I listened to this on a road trip with Tom. It was pretty good type of action/suspense story. I had listened to one of his earlier ones, which has the same heroes. I little James Bondish (imposiible heroics) but a nice break from all my book club books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 3/11/2011

    " very redundant. constantly repeating themselves to 12 pages of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 3/6/2011

    " While I do agree with some other reviews about the story being a bit slow and without much action, I give this a strong rating as the ending left me so satisfied. Griffin does a great job with the last part of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleele | 2/27/2011

    " Could use an editor here. Way too much "background" information that is unnecessary to the storyline. I could have skipped the first 2/3 of the book and been just fine with knowing the storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 1/29/2011

    " Yet another amazing series By the Griffin father and son team. Great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/22/2011

    " This is still an enjoyable series for me, but I am disappointed at how Carlos acts like an immature schoolboy around his girlfriend! I'd like to find a diiferent WEB Griffin series to start... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 1/18/2011

    " Usually, I enjoye W.E.B Griffin's books but this one was not his best work. It felt a little off and the plotline just didn't go anywhere. It wasn't adventurous. It was just dull. Perhaps the next one will be better. "
