Charley Castillo works with the Department of Homeland Security, but more and more he is the man to whom the president turns when he needs an investigation done discreetly. And no situation demands discretion more than the one before them now.

An American diplomat's wife is kidnapped in Argentina, and her husband murdered before her eyes. Her children will be next, she is warned, if she doesn't tell them where her brother is, a brother, as it turns out, who may know quite a bit about the burgeoning UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal. There is an awful lot of money flying around, and an awful lot of hands reaching out to grab it, and some of those hands don't mind shedding as much blood as it takes.

    " Second Griffin book I read. Great and interesting details in explaining the scenes and sequence of events. Rather weak on the 'main story (i.e. about the people behind the Oil for Food)'. In fact, the you don't get to the guy they've been looking for until the last 60 pages of the book. And the title 'The Hostage' is pretty misleading as there really isn't much of 'hostage' situation in the book. Maybe Griffin wrote this book to further set up his main characters for this series. "

    " Fun and quick paced, exciting and a brilliant cliff hanger. Love the way that WEB Griffin makes each book a stand alone but ties in the previous story with different aspects and happenings so it is not boring for someone who is reading the whole series. "

    " I love WEB Griffin's books despite his incredibly sexist heroes, and his madonna/whore attitude towards his female characters. "
