The #1 New York Times-bestselling series returns-and the stakes have never been higher.

Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded-but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

But the first opportunity, when it comes, is shocking: A FedEx package arrives, bearing photos of barrels containing some of the most dangerous biohazard materials on earth, all of which were supposed to have been destroyed during a raid on a secret Russian factory in the Congo. Who has them, and what do they want? Castillo has a feeling he's not going to like the answers.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Wallace | 2/20/2014

    " If you like strategy and politics, you will enjoy this book. Quick paced, multifaceted action and intrigue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 2/17/2014

    " Carlos does the job again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Csie5906 | 2/13/2014

    " I enjoyed the subtle humor "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Jacobs | 2/4/2014

    " 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... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 2/4/2014

    " 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 Craig | 1/29/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Stark | 1/26/2014

    " Charley Castillo is operating against terrorists... without the President's backing. This book didn't engage me quite as much as the previous ones in "The Presidential Agent" series, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 1/19/2014

    " This book was entertaining and easy to read, but the inaccuracies and attempts at wit and irony made it somewhat annoying in parts. Overall however, the story was interesting enough to make it a quick read. Unfortunately the author relied too heavily on character development from previous novels in the series. The lack of character development in this book, along with the 600+ pages of text and an extremely predictable plot made the book drag. Regardless, it was enjoyable to read although probably a waste of time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael Peterson | 1/17/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian Britton | 11/30/2013

    " My tip would be to read the series in order. I enjoyed The Outlaws but I would have felt differently if this was the first W.E.B. Griffin I had ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 10/15/2013

    " Spy stuff, I liked it. Rogue CIA types against the Russians, a deadly bacteris, and the incopetent US President. Pick an enemy and pick a hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 9/11/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 9/8/2013

    " This is a typical W.E.B. Griffin novel, fun to read but like a Law & Order or Perry Mason episode it has a formula to it and the end is never really in doubt but its a quick easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 8/31/2013

    " Wow! There are some incredible scenes written in this novel. If you like action, you should love this story that is more political than military. 10 of 10 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 7/30/2013

    " I once talked my girlfriend into reading one of Griffin's books. She told me it was like a romance novel for manly men. I think that covers this and all of his other military novels quite well. Still, I am, for some reason, hopelessly addicted to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 11/3/2012

    " If one has read enough of one author, especially of this type, one pretty much knows how the story will run. Even with that said, I do enjoy his Presidential Agent series and Charley Castillo once again saving the day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry Malsch | 9/14/2012

    " This should be a much shorter book. It spent way to much time reviewing character relationships from previous books in the series. Once you finally get past that (about half the book), it's a very good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleele | 5/15/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TJ | 4/23/2012

    " More of a summary of previous books rather than forward movement in the story line. Not as funny as previous stories, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 10/19/2011

    " Don't like that he's ghostwriting with others, but an okay book. "

  • 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. "

  • 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. "
