Publisher's Summary

Griffin's Honor Bound novels have been hailed as "terrific" (Newark Star-Ledger) and "immensely entertaining" (Kirkus Reviews), with "enough derring-do, romance, and action to satisfy Griffin's legions of fans and bring him new ones" (Rocky Mountain News).

August 6, 1943: In his brief career in the Office of Strategic Services, 24-year-old Cletus Frade has already been involved in a lot of unusual situations, but nothing like the one he's in now, standing with a German lieutenant colonel named Wilhelm Frogger in a Mississippi prisoner-of-war detention facility. Frade's job? To help Frogger escape. Frogger's parents are in Frade's custody in Argentina, because of their involvement in a secret German plan to establish safe havens for senior Nazi officials in South America, and the younger Frogger has agreed to help find out what they know.

Even more important, however, is the secret within the secret. Before he was captured in Africa, Frogger was part of a conspiracy; its goal: to assassinate Adolf Hitler. If the OSS can use his knowledge and connections to nudge that plot along, even just a little bit, they may be able to end this war right now.

But Frade is not the only one who knows about the Froggers. Even as he stands there in Mississippi, a troop of Germans and Argentinians, led by a Colonel Juan Perón, is on its way to kill the parents and, after them, Frade himself. His career in the OSS may have been brief - but it may just be about to be over.

Filled with the special flair that Griffin's fans have come to expect, The Honor of Spies is another rousing adventure from one of our finest storytellers.

    "The Best Yet"

    W.E.B. Griffin is by far the best author of the Military genre. He uses actual true historical events adds in his own twist, throws in interesting characters and puts the reader right into the action. This book explains a lot about how Air America started. Fasten your seat belts and put your tray tables in their upright and locked positions, it's going to be a wild ride!

    "Not Recommended"

    This is the first W.E.B book I have ever felt the need to review. I love his other books but this one is impossible to follow. There are so many people involved, americans, germans, and those from argentina, I bet the cast adds up to at least 75. the germans are given their offical army name which is not translated to english so you do not know who commands whom. They travel all over the world which is also very confusing. There are probably 15 to 20 people in each chapter. The only way to listen to this book is if you have a "photographic or audible memory" beyond belief. Please keep the next book shorter and a little more simple for the publics enjoyment.

    "Interesting History"

    Fascinating subject and much interesting dialogue to pay attention to. I downgrade only because I do not like Scott Brick's reading and a realistic German accent is required. Other reviews have gotten me interested enough in the rest of the series to listen to it inspite of Brick's erzatz emotion.
