    October 1945: The Germans and Japanese have surrendered. For Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, it should be time to pack up - but they have far more important things to do. Chief among them is the protection of their assets, especially the human ones. In the closing months of the war, the United States made a secret deal with the head of German intelligence’s Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence - in particular the identity of the Soviet spies in the U.S. atomic bomb program - his people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.

    Edward Lulie says: "Surprising Good Sequel"
    "He's still great!"

    Story
    Where does Empire and Honor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Griffin's six different series are all great, but Honor Bound is my favorite - perhaps because of the hero's larger-than-life persona and the interesting settings. This is, by my count, his 50th book, and he still tells a story with detail and interest which few authors match. This ranks as one of my favorite all-time audiobooks, even though the ending really caught me hanging by a thread. Hope the next arrives sooner rather than later.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Griffin still tells the story, fleshing out the characters and filling in the past for those who either haven't read the prior books or, like me, forget some detail. It 's the storytelling and the detail, woven into history, that makes this series - and this book - to my liking.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Brick is a delightful storyteller. In these books, his dialects enhance the story. Switching from accents of American Texan to Spanish and German enhances the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "The War is over, but the adventure continues"
