The first two novels in W. E. B. Griffin’s exciting new Presidential Agent series, By Order of the President and The Hostage, immediately raced up the bestseller lists. Told in “punchy prose that connects like a right hook” (Chicago Tribune), they were further proof that “Griffin just keeps on getting better” (Booklist). The Hunters picks up right where The Hostage left off. Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars in the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal have led Castillo and his team to an estancia in Uruguay, where the man they seek is murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the dirty-money chain - those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They’ve left just enough of a trail, though, for Castillo to pick up the scent, and with carte blanche from the President of the United States to follow it wherever it takes him, he ends up…well, not exactly where he expected… Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The Honor Bound series went downhill rather quickly. Maybe it is because this newish series is much more interesting to Griffin. Or maybe Griffin's son is writing the other series and Griffin is focused on this on. Whatever the reason, the first few books of this series have the level of detail I think I remember from his earlier books. There are a ton of characters to keep track of but the story stays interesting most of the time. It does get a little dry as money is tracked from one offshore account to another but it is these details that also round out the story. Castillo and company are tracking illegally earned money from the Iraqi oil for food scandal. Arrows seem to be pointing to the involvement of Putin and the Russian government and, now, their efforts to hide their involvement by eliminating anyone who has come across evidence linking them to the scandal. What's wrong is Griffin's apparent love of clandestine services. He doesn't seem to realize or at least acknowledge what a poor a poor track record the OSS/CIA have and how many illegal activities they were involved in that were of no benefit to the nation. He also seems to be in love with the idea of one strong leader able to move mountains. "

    " Audio Book. Charlie Castillo is fun to read. He buys his own jet this time to travel around the world in. He kills the bad guys that are hunting people, himself, Eric Kotzien, David Yung. The good guys always seem to get the better end of the deal whe "

    " My review is of the audiobook. 18 discs later & a lot of it could have been cut down. Every time a new person got added to the "team" or the main character, Charley Castillo reported to Washington there was a very long regurgitation of facts to bring each one up to speed. If I had been reading the book I could have skipped past entire sections of the book due to this repetition, but bothersome to try and do while listening in your car and so I put up with it. Not a lot going on except flying back and forth between the states, Europe and South America on the same hunt to find the people behind the murder of a diplomat from Book 2 without much progress in between. Find something else worth your time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 KarenC | 2/6/2014

    " If you are reading the books in this series in sequence and close together this one will go fast. Huge chunks of description and catch-up plot info. has been pasted in from the previous book, so you can skip pages at a time. I'd like to see the bad guys get fully identified, captured, and done away with, but doubt that will happen. Each book throws out a piece of the puzzle, but never concludes the chase. Charley & his team can fly around some more. Language and treatment of females is getting really annoying, but wanted to work through all of the titles in the series that I picked up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jb Brown | 1/18/2014

    " Read it, and found it to be rife with military cliches. It was predictable. Just something to kill time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 1/17/2014

    " Charley is even more of a know it all in this book, and it is refreshing that Betty seems to opt for her career. A first for a Griffin hero to be rejected (even if it is just temporary). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendela | 1/17/2014

    " I think I overdosed on Charley Castillo. Still good, but we need to take a break. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/6/2014

    " Action book from cover to cover. Latter part more conversational than physical. All-in-all a pretty good read. I borrowed this book to read from someone else. I'm glad I didn't buy it; not worth keeping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meakin | 1/6/2014

    " In this series it just keeps getting better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry | 1/4/2014

    " Another good read by Griffin. Some of Castillo's habits towards underlings he doesn't like are a bit annoying and what's up with the yellow polo shirts and light blue slacks? Makes me thing I'm back in the 80's with disco and Miami Vice! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blaise Nicoletti | 12/25/2013

    " Whoa!!! This is my kind of story. This book is actually the follow up to "The Hostage" and the writer is exceptional. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 12/19/2013

    " If you like military thrillers sort of Clancyesque, Griffin will sate your appetite. His character, Charley Castillo, is featured in this "Presidential Agent" series. A long supporting cast is included in each book. Simpler plots than Clancy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bluesky | 12/11/2013

    " Fast paced and a good read. First time i have read this author and wasnt dissapointed. "

    " I have always enjoyed WEB Griffith, he's expanded my vision of the World Chess board and makes me feel like a slug cause I only speak 3 languages so I shall endeavor to do better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 3/18/2013

    " Audio Book CD. Very in depth and complicated plot. Lots of characters to keep track of, but worth the effort. "

    " I DIDN'T READ THE FIRST TWO. WOULD HAVE HELPED A LOT IF I HAD DONE SO AS I GOT CONFUSED AT TIMES BUT STILL, AN ENERTAINING BOOK WITH INCREDIBLE DETAIL "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 B | 11/27/2011

    " Annoying that the main mystery has spanned two books and mainly revolves around money. Story seems overly detailed in travel logistics and bureaucratic intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 11/11/2011

    " good escapism. nice plot. Need to find a copy of the next volume. "

    " I just cant get enough of this series. One more and I will be completely done with it. Then I will have to find something else to read. These books read like the Bourne movies play. Fast paced, good guys vs bad guys, with a little nose thumbing at people with attitudes in high places. "

    " Good book. Recommend starting with the first book of Presidential Agent series. This one contiues right where the last one ended and ties together. It doesn't really have an ending so I will be reading the next one in the series. "
