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
    "Not worthy of a great author."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A third of this book was rehash and the hero has morphed into a jerk.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing that is a collaboration between Griffin and Butterworth this is the second and last time I will fall for a book by Griffin that does not meet the standard of pulp fiction let alone good reading.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the only redeeming quality of this book was the narrator, but even Dick Hill can't make a bad story good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Covert Warriors?

    Put the background in a pro-log and leave it out of the rest of the story. If the reader really wants to know the detailed background they'll buy the books.


    Any additional comments?

    If W.E.B. Griffin can not take the time to write new and original stories perhaps it is time to retire. That would be sad but I would rather remember the great stories he has written in the past than be disappointed with trash written just for the bucks.

    Story
    "Just plain bad"
    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Dick Hill?

    No I would not. Weak storyline, poor narration, and difficult to follow.


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

    There storyline was just very weak and not believable. Add bad narration and it was not an enjoyable read.

    "Can't wait for the next one!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Covert Warriors to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Castillo... wish he was more like the one in the early books of the series, but always like the lead character


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

    Not sure I had one. wasn't his best performance.


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

    Storyline was easy to figure out. I laughed a couple times.


    Any additional comments?

    Ready for the next book. Wish this one ended differently. seemed to rush the ending. There was more time spent reviewing the history of some of the other books and how it ties in here and less time spent on the final few chapters. A little reminder to the past is fine, but this was done like he had a page count in mind and cut parts short to stay within it.

    "Great series so far but the ending was half baked"

    it was like W.E.B. was tired of writing the series and just wanted the book to end and the last few chapters might as well have been "everyone lived happily ever after the end."

    "Great Story, But a Rather Abrupt Ending"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Covert Warriors to be better than the print version?

    I am unable to find time to spend reading a novel, but I do a lot of driving and the audio book makes the miles go by quickly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Continuing saga of Castillo.


    Any additional comments?

    I always enjoy WEB Griffin and the escapades of Castillo. While he is a little long winded in his books, they are pretty good stories. He could have cut out a little of the background story and extended the ending. I was a little disappointed that the ending was so abrupt not explaining some of the critical details. That was the only disappointment. Good book.

    "Good story for WEB books, horrible narrating"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Covert Warriors to be better than the print version?

    The print version is much better, the narrator is like an older version of Daniel Defoe, really bad to listen to

    Story
    "Still fun, but lost the magic."
    What did you like best about Covert Warriors? What did you like least?

    W E B's characters are still amusing and entertaining. But his plot and character development takes too long, and lacks the former snappy pace. And like many successful authors who have hit upon a successful formula, he follows the formula, until realizes his going he's behind schedule and then rushes to an unsatisfactory ending, not conclusion.


    Was Covert Warriors worth the listening time?

    yes, but should hsve been shorter.

    "Covert Warriors"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was not up to the intrigue and the wit of previous Griffin Books. I have read them all. The reader was not on his game or past his prime. I am a grandfather and it sounded like My Grandfather was reading the story. Regional Accents were not authentic. However, the bad guys in the story were not revealed until the end. I was not sure who to


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Charlie and his grandmother...I appreciate the helicopter action. As a former pilot with some stick time in a


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Diction was not so hot....regional accents were not up to par


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not..


    Any additional comments?

    Keep writing...I will keep buying. <br/>
