The spectacular new book in New York Times best-selling author W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage.
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.
To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring - and great danger - but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

I was really surprised how much I did NOT like this Novel. Lots of characters- lots of talking- lots of tie-ins with historical facts... very few of which led to anything. After about 4 hours you are really wondering if there is any plot to this at all. When it finally looks like you figured out what the plot is... that plot line is ruled out and are again left to wonder why am I listening to this. I finished it just to see why the book was written.In the last hour or so it somewhat comes together but not worth the time or a credit. In fact, I wouldn't recommend listening to it even if it were free. Blah Blah Blah... oh, I zoned out. Let me rewind to see what I missed. No, didn't miss anything.
I enjoy this series immensely but this book started out in one direction and 2/3 of the book dealt with this subject and then drop it at the end. I was disappointed like other series the author has written. I feel like he gets tired and then just ends the story.
I was disappointed with this book. There is a lot of dialogue but at the expense of any feel for the period or locations. Where there are descriptions, these are often repeated. It just felt that it was guys taking off and landing in planes but with no sense of distance travelled. All in all I found it one dimensional and at times confusing.
