Publisher's Summary

It's 1942. A Marine aviator, an Army paratrooper and demolitions expert, and a non-com radio man are on an impossible mission for the OSS - sabotaging the resupply of German ships and submarines by any means necessary!

First Lieutenant Cletus Frade is fresh from Guadalcanal. He teams up with Second Lieutenant Anthony Pelosi and Sergeant David Ettinger for the most critical OSS operation of the war.

Under the direction of the mysterious Colonel Loman, they venture into a simmering stew of German and Allied agents, collaborators, and government security thugs, of men and women hiding their pasts and plotting their futures - all in supposedly neutral city of Buenos Aires.

Critic Reviews

"Griffin's reconstruction of upper-class Argentine society in the 1940s provides an exotic and credible setting for a tautly written story whose twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the last page." ( Publishers Weekly)

Worth the listen

The book started slowly but as you listen you begin to like the main characters, father, son, and the other characters linked to them. I'm not normally a fan of military based novels but will puchase other books in the series by this author. I would have given this book 4.5 to 5 stars with the exception that it ended a bit abruptly. I would have liked a bit more follow up on the relationships the author developed throughout the novel but still well worth listening to.

Not Bound

When will I learn? I read the first book of Semper Fi, thought it was pretty good and when several more of Griffin's book went on sale, I bought three. This is the second I bought and it is awful. Nothing happens in this book. I stuck it out for eleven chapters, but lost patience.

Dick Hill is my favorite narrator and he did a good job, although I will agree with others I did not like the echo effect. If you have listened to any of McCaffery's Dragon books, then you know what I an talking about.

An Enjoyable Listen

Any additional comments?

I read the series years ago, now I want to revisit them all in audio format. About the only complaint that I had was that someone should have told Dick Hill that the name Jorge is pronounced "Hor-Hey" and not "Hor-Gay". That was just annoying.
Other than that I enjoyed it.

An excellent military thriller!

86 year old William Edward Butterworth III has been authoring or coauthoring military thrillers under his own name and various pseudonyms for 57 years. During that period he has released over 160 novels about one-third of which are available in audiobook format. Butterworth's best known pseudonym is W.E.B. Griffin. Honor Bound is one of many military thrillers released under the Griffin pseudonym; some are coauthored with his son William Edward Butterworth IV. The best of the books are written by Griffin alone.

Honor Bound is an excellent military thriller with outstanding narration by Dick Hill. I highly recommend all of the W.E.B. Griffin novels written without a coauthor. Most of the novels are narrated by either Dick Hill, Scott Brick, or Eric G. Dove who are three of the very best.

A s Spanish speaking lover of web griffin's books.

It was a good listen. I enjoyed it. However, for a book set in Argentina, the narrator had poor Spanish pronunciation.

One of my favorite series by W.E.B. Griffin

Would you consider the audio edition of Honor Bound to be better than the print version?

I like audiobook best I can listen anytime any place. No matter what I'm doing.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

All books by WED Griffin are written in a style I call (I Was There) the reader is part of the story. The characters are friends or those you works with. It is very easies to become part of the story

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Dick Hill is one of my favorite readers

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I enjoy the whole series. I have it saved on a flash drive. I listen to the whole series once a year. The first book in a new series requires a lot of character development. Which is done well. The book has a few good twists and turns like all Griffins novels do.

Any additional comments?

As a US Veteran I can relate to the writing of WEB Griffin.
The reading of general orders.
The explanation of Chain of Command.
Helps set the time and place for each series.
As always a Big Well Done.

Good story

And I normally
like Dick Hill - but the experience is nearly ruined by the gimmick of using an echo effect to indicate inner thoughts
