    At a Mexican roadblock, a U.S. Embassy SUV is stopped at gunpoint, three of its passengers murdered, and a fourth kidnapped. Everything points to the drug cartels, especially when the kidnappers say they will return the hostage if a cartel kingpin is released from U.S. federal prison.But when word gets to Charley Castillo and his group of “retired” spies and special operators, they have their doubts.

    What did you like best about Covert Warriors? What did you like least?

    I've followed the Charlie Castillo series since its inception. This novel seemed to have a


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    One of Griffin's strengths is character development. Where that was present in this book, it was cut and pasted from previous volumes.
    Second, the language was over the top - or more accurately- in the sewer. It was so difficult to listen to, I had to turn it off a few times just to take a break. (Some is expected, but this? Come on.) Much of the foul language had nothing to do with the story. It was petty and not in keeping with the consistency of the other books in the series.
    It was no longer fun: it became a chore. I don't read fiction for the intellectual challenge, but if I need chores, I'll check the honey-do list.


    Do you think Covert Warriors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The Castillo series should continue, but I would encourage that Griffin returns to his original principles and style.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next one isn't as flat. It's unlikely that I'll invest in another book by this author.
