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.

    "Another classic from W.E.B Griffin."
    What made the experience of listening to Covert Warriors the most enjoyable?

    Covert Warrior is the 7th book in the Presidential series. It is well worth the read. Same great character development. Sa,e great plot development. Covert Warriors is a fun enjoyable read. It is also very Understandable to those non military types out there. I would suggest reading the whole series.Although WEB Griffin fills you in on some of the past stories and adventures, it is much more enjoyable reading the series from start to finish.Finally WEB Griffin has a great sense of humor, which he portraits in his chanters. Wonderful read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well of Course Lt. Col. Charlie Castillio is my favorite character. He is serious, funny, works hard, leads the group and is respected by all but a few., and feared ny many.


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

    I especially enjoy the way WEB Griffin incorporates the current name of the Secority of State (or back dated a few years. This really allows readers to relate to characters as "Real people" instead of fictional characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    n/A


    Any additional comments?

    Dick Hill did a wonderful job reading this book. Hill and Griffin are a great team.

    "Horrible!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one.


    What could W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Put some action into it! Boring, Boring, Boring! There was nothing but previous story information through the whole book and made the story extremely confusing to follow. . Everyone associated with the lead character had an ego the wouldn't quit!! It was annoying and tiring to listen to! Additionally, any man that would tell other men that his girlfriend was busy getting a bikini wax, is rude and stupid.


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

    Dick Hill is always great. This was no exception.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NONE

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story.


    What could W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The authors spend way too much time telling about innumerable meetings. There's not enough action and way too much time spent introducing peripheral characters. The previous books in this series were much better.


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

    Dick Hill is always great!


    Any additional comments?

    If you want action, try Andrew Peterson's work.

    "GREAT SERIES"
    What did you love best about Covert Warriors?

    This is the seventh book in a great series. I can't wait till number eight comes out.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it. Who would have thought a sixty six year old woman would fall in love with a covert action type series like this. Well I'm hooked


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene where Charlie shows up the ambassador is great. He is such a pompous stuffed shirt.


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

    I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should give this a chance. I've been trying to get my sons to try it.

    "Not what I'm used to from W.E.B."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listen every day going and coming from work. I also listen every morning while walking the dog. I was not entertained, but captured. If the idea of the book was to get someone pizzed off, it worked!!


    Has Covert Warriors turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I think I will wait to see what others have to say like I should have on this one. Griffin is one of my favorite authors and I have read EVERY BOOK OF EVERY SERIES of his books.


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

    Dick Hill is one of my absolute favorite readers and if not for him, I would have stopped this book and listened to my wife instead!! Although the main character is Castillo, and you might think he would stand out; just the opposite, he kind of lurks in the background and the others aren't much better. If I had to choose one, I'd say Max the dog as he never said anything, but was a great character.


    Could you see Covert Warriors being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Definitely not!!


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was terrible; the book kind of stopped. I can see a sequel because the President is such an A-hole. No one stood up to him, including his Cabinet or DOD. If I were in his cabinet, I'd have told him to stick it where the sun don't shine and resigned.

    Yes. I have recommended the whole Presidential Series and I look forward to each book. It's an interesting read.


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

    On a scale of 1-10, I would give this a 7 or 8.

    Easy listening


    Did Covert Warriors inspire you to do anything?

    It's a good summer read.

    ENJOY!

    "This book was disappointing."

    The author was content to put clever dialog into 99% of the story. There was almost no action, just bickering between the major characters. I kept waiting for some action, but nothing very much happened.

    The narrator was excellent and used great accents and voices to fit the characters.

    "Skip this one but read the others in this series"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure who would like it, maybe those who enjoy poorly written stories.


    What could W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Wrote an ending that actually fit the story and tied up the loose ends. The whole book felt like it was cut and paste from a couple of different manuscripts and the transitions were horrible.


    How could the performance have been better?

    ease up on the accents


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I used a credit so it didn't cost me full price.

    "Presidential Agent Series"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Good listen for the entire 7 books, interesting people, locations, a number of switches of the plot. Did not enjoy the constant reviewing of what had happened to date. I understand bringing you up to date from book to book, but sometimes lengthy reviews were made just bringing in a new character. Irritating. The ending of book 7 left a lot of questions left unanswered, was there a real plot against the president? who was involved? What happened with Generals Naler and McNab? Castillo had a particularly nasty attitude towards Svetlana in book 7-did they continue working (and playing) together? Is this a set-up for Book 8?


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

    This is the first Griffin series I have listened to.


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

    Castillo, although strong in many ways, also had many imperfections to his character, was played well by Dick Hill. The narrater in book six seemed to change personalities of some characters (more so than just voice variances) seemed less interesting in comparison to Hill's performance.


    Was Covert Warriors worth the listening time?

    A 7 book series is going to have periods of lower intensity, but overall, I enjoyed the entire series. Personally, I would like to have seen some loose ends tied up a little better at the end.......but , I understand that does tend to make one more anxious for book 8.
