Critics and fans everywhere love the Men at War series, books “rich with witty banter and nail-biting undercover work” (Entertainment Weekly). It is summer 1943. Two of the Allies’ most important plans are at grave risk — Operation Overlord’s invasion of France and the Manhattan Project’s race to build the atomic bomb. A furious President Roosevelt turns to OSS spy chief Wild Bill Donovan — and Donovan turns to Dick Canidy and his teams behind enemy lines. They’ve certainly got their work cut out for them. In the weeks to come, they must fight the Axis in many ways, to try to find and sabotage Germany’s new “aerial torpedo” rockets, some of which are rumored to be fitted out with deadly nerve gas and aimed at London; to rescue a missing covert OSS team bearing vital secrets; and to exploit German intelligence agents and generals disgruntled enough with Hitler to maybe try to topple him. And as if all that weren’t enough, they must battle the enemy within, as well: The Soviets are using moles to steal Manhattan Project secrets, and if the Soviets build their own atomic bomb . . . who knows where that might lead? Filled to the brim with action, character, and the deep understanding of the military heart and mind that have made Griffin’s novels outstanding, The Spymasters is simply great listening.

    " As was true of other books since Butterworth IV became involved, marketing this as a novel is a crime. It was a short story with 90% filler - two lines of dialogue followed by four paragraphs of explanation copied from prior books in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 12/5/2013

    " best one of his novels ive read in a long time "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Porteus | 11/28/2013

    " As always from Griffin & Butterworth - an action filled yarn following a variety of characters we've come to love and admire. Who wouldn't want to be Canidy? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eunice | 11/3/2013

    " Didn't enjoy this as much as some of the others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 10/31/2013

    " This was my first and last W.E.B. Griffin book. It's what I considered to be a slow read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kountze Library | 10/22/2013

    " "Typical W.E.B. Griffin fare. Drags in spots, but all-in-all a decent read." -JP "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 10/5/2013

    " I got about 150 pages in and it was still boring. Last one of WEB Griffin's sons' books I read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vincent | 8/30/2013

    " I have read every W.E.B. Griffin novel,and all of the previous books in this series. This was the worst of his works - seemed thrown together and wasn't nearly as engaging as other stuff he (they) have written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Klanderman | 6/23/2013

    " Not the best of canids, but a good fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 5/8/2013

    " I loved all of the earlier series that WEB Griffin wrote but now there is just too much repetition of older material assembled in a new package. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kit | 4/23/2013

    " I enjoyed reading more, albeit finctionalized, about the work of the OSS during WWII. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L-J Johnson | 4/23/2013

    " World War II. Hitler versus Churchill. And Richard Canidy and crew, heroes all, do what they must do. Good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doug Branscombe | 4/8/2013

    " This book just didn't do it for me. A look behind the scenes at the spy network in Europe during WWII. Characters were well developed, but the story line didn't grab me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 3/3/2013

    " This was an ok addition to my least favorite of Griffin's series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Wheeler | 2/14/2013

    " I liked the book. It was a solid extension of the familiar characters and explores the highly plausible scenario of the Nazis developing nerve gas to use in bombarding London with the V-1. And he does the good anti-Nazi German theme that he has done so well in a number of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/1/2013

    " I really enjoyed it and I have always enjoyed all of Griffin's books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 12/11/2012

    " The book was kind of hard to get into. I kept wanting to put it aside and read something else. Kind of a meh, bland book. Some good enough moments to keep it from falling further than a three star rating, but barely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Priscilla Mcanally | 10/21/2012

    " W. E. B. Griffin is another one I always like. "

    " Another great chapter in the Men at War series "
