    Story
    (303)

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    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.

    Richard Tabisz says: "Disappointing"
    "Story is not fully developed - kind of abridged??"

    Would you try another book from W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Dick Hill?

    Yes.


    If you’ve listened to books by W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth before, how does this one compare?

    This is book 7 - the people and their characters are developed. This story is kind of half baked. Not quite done. Book is ~13hrs long and should have been 25+ to take this to the level it should have been.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None... None of the story line is as complete as it should be. Dick Hill done his usual great job with the telling of the story, it's just not complete.
