Publisher's Summary

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. Fresh from having enraged the Kremlin by staging a covert raid in Venezuela that nabbed not only high-value Russian agents but also a highly prized secret Russian aircraft, they start connecting the dots. They believe that it’s a diversion. That the murders and kidnapping were ordered by none other than Vladimir Putin himself to lure Castillo and company to their deaths. And the thing of it is, even knowing that may not save them. Powerful forces in the U.S. government are arrayed against them as well, and if one side doesn’t get them... the other side will.

Filled with Griffin’s trademark rich characters and cutting-edge drama, this is another exceptional novel in an exceptional series.

Prolong the suspense: listen to another Presidential Agent thriller.

    Story
    "Covert Warriors"

    Dick Hill does a great job narrating the book. Since Griffin has been writing with his son the story seems a bit ragged. I hope as they work together the son learns more from his father and can carry the writing forward. There was a lot of repetition of the prior books of the series which interfered with the current story. The story built up with lots of suspense then the ending was a total let down. At first I thought there was an error in the downloading of the book, it seemed as if a whole section of the ending was missing. I would have liked a lot more detail for the ending. Maybe it will be filled in with the next book of the series. I love the series and will keep listening and hope they improve writing together.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Always Great Stuff"
    Where does Covert Warriors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to about 400 books in the last 3 years. This whole series of the Presidential Agent is at least in the top two books in a series. Every booki in this series is relevant and the characters have developed so well since the beginning book. I love every one of them.


    What other book might you compare Covert Warriors to and why?

    I listen to too many books to make a comparison against one. Well developed characters and great suspense and action and story lines. I already await the next one.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Dick Hill is one of the best and particularly well suited to this series. Love his portral of all of the main characters but Charlie and Fernando are probably my favorites. The previous book in this series was not read by Dick Hill and it totally killed it for me and many others. Dick Hill


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of suspense and there is always some sarcastic humor in this series. Love every minute of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I just hate waiting for a year or more for the next one. Griffin is involved in so many series, which are all good, but this series has always been my favorite

    Story
    "Glad Hill is narrating again"

    This is better than The Outlaws, both in terms of story and narrator. Although you can really hear the influence of Griffin's son Butterworth. He is just not as good a writer. Some of Hill's voices changed but that is to be expected by the 7th book in the series. But, previously unknown character relationships, i.e. the mutual dislike of McNabb and Naylor, are disturbing and not necessary for story development.

    All in all worth the listen and I hope that the next in the series, almost certainly written mostly by the son will be more in the style of a younger WEB Griffin. You get the impression Butterworth needs to read his dad's books more carefully in the future before writing a sequel.

    "Mildly entertaining story for the series"
    What did you like best about Covert Warriors? What did you like least?

    I wait for the new WEB Griffin books just to stay up on the series I like. While these are good story lines, they are predictable just like his other series. This story is ok. Just that OK. I do like the characters somewhat.Where is Sergeant Major Jack Davidson now?There is a good adjunct plot deviation with


    What was most disappointing about W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth ’s story?

    I am extremely tired of the ongoing fight between Pevsner & Charlie over who is tsar.Can we move on?The SVR/Putin line is getting old. Get the SOF Chain of Command straight. Hire somebody to give you advice. This mistake is extremely aggravating.The editing is getting poor. I still don't get the conflict between Naylor VS McNabb/Charley.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dick Hill?

    Hill does ok.I really wish he used a different inflection for Vic D'Alesandro.


    Did Covert Warriors inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, don't buy another one until I get through with my aggravation.


    Any additional comments?

    Only buy this if you are keeping up with the series.

    "Charlie/Carlos is back to form"

    I liked this one, again. Not that I didn't like the last one I reviewed, I just didn't like how the characters changed. But, now they are back close to normal.

    The story is interesting, even though the author keeps repeating the entire story, which slows it down a bit. The narrator is no Dick Hill, but once you get used to the new voices, it goes well.

    I don't like the new President, but, I don't think I'm supposed to.

    "Psycho POTUS"

    Geez! Whacko president and our hero dodges the bullet once again. You gotta wonder if the author created a president from a combination of W Bush and Lyndon Johnson....mostly the latter. Paranoid, controlling and micromanaging. On to the last and newest book in the series.

    "A great book read by the best performer Dick Hill."
    Would you listen to Covert Warriors again? Why?

    Entertaining anr masterfully performed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Storyline is "believable" and keeps you wanting more. The "mad" president is masterfully performed by Dick Hill.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have listened too many readers/performers, but Dick Hill makes every book he reads better and more entertaining than anyone else.


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

    Presential "marbles".

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

    Now that I finished the entire series, I am thinking that this series should have have ended successfully at three or so.
