    It is November 1942. War is raging in Europe. The invasion of North Africa has begun. In Washington, OSS chief William J. Donovan finds himself fighting a rear-guard battle against an unexpected enemy: the rival intelligence chiefs back home. In Morocco, Second Lieutenant Eric Fulmar waits in the desert for a car containing two top-level defectors - or will it be full of SS men instead? In England, Major Richard Canidy gets the mission of his life: to penetrate into the heart of Germany and bring out the man with the secret of the jet engine, before the Germans grab hold of him first.

    The Philippines, 1943: As the ragged remnants of the American forces stand against the might of the Imperial Japanese Army, a determined cadre of OSS agents becomes their only contact with the outside world - and their only hope for survival.

    If you could sum up The Fighting Agents in three words, what would they be?

    great book, fun series


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    NO!!!!!! He is the worst narrator on Audible! Restrict Scott to American stories only, he does not handle non-english words, makes for a very tough listen!

    Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

    Rick says: "Classic W.E.B. and Brick's narration wins big."
    "Good but a little short"

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Scott Brick does not do well with non English books, he strugles with foreign words and accents.

    August 6, 1943: In his brief career in the Office of Strategic Services, 24-year-old Cletus Frade has already been involved in a lot of unusual situations, but nothing like the one he's in now, standing with a German lieutenant colonel named Wilhelm Frogger in a Mississippi prisoner-of-war detention facility.

    If you could sum up The Honor of Spies in three words, what would they be?

    Great book


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick???s performances?

    NO! Once again Scott Brick demonstrates that he is not up to the task of performing a book with non-english words & names. He continuously mispronouces non-english words and names making his naration a nail on the chalk board experience.

    The year is 1943, and Argentina is officially neutral, but crawling with every kind of spy, sympathizer, and military official imaginable. The hero is Cletus Frade, a Marine pilot recruited by the OSS, with strong family ties to Argentina. And in Death and Honor - Griffin's fourth book in the Honor Bound series and the first since 1999 - he's got a lot on his hands.

    JerryL says: "Another great book..."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Death and Honor the most enjoyable?

    The story is great, the naration by Scott Brick does not compare with the narrators Michael Russotto or Dick Hill


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death and Honor?

    When Scot Brick called the German attack on the USSR Operation


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick???s performances?

    NO! He is not a good performer, especially with books involving foreign languagues. He mispronouces words and does not deal with accents correctly. In Death & Honor he called the German attack on the USSR opereration


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No
