"* "His novels promise action, suspense, and rousing entertainment, and they never fail to deliver" Booklist on Black Ops "Griffin's description of police procedure rings with authenticity. He lets his readers come close to experiencing the real thing without having to duck bullets" Booklist on Final Justice "If God is truly in the details, then Griffin must be the pope of police procedurals" Publishers Weekly on Final Justice "The slick but restrained pace at which the story unfolds makes this an enjoyable and gripping read" Publishers Weekly on The Assassin" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

WEB Griffin has done it again, a fast moving book that, as with all of his books, puts over very well the nobility, humour and fraternity of the police. I love the way that the characters and settings have moved to the present (the early books in the series were set in the early 1970s), so that mobile phones, internet, computers can all be used to enhance the police procedures. This book covers only a few days in "The City of Brotherly Love", and is about the discovery and tracking down of a very nasty piece of scum. Once again the hero, Matt Payne, finds a new love interest, but this one doesn't come to an unfortunate - ie fatal - end.. Yet! I am sure there are more books yet to come in this series. If you haven't read his books before, you should, you are missing one of the great supporters of the police and military who writes with such affection and admiration for these guys in uniform.

This book lived up to my expectations with the continuing saga of Cletus Frade. W.E.B Griffin continues his espionage tales which are intricately plotted and packed with factual details. A good read.

having waited ages for this follow on I must admit I found it somewhat disappointing. We get pages of historical biography of bit players whilst some of the main characters from previous books get little if no mention (what happened to Peter Wohl?). The whole book appears to be a mish mash, as though the authors couldn't quite make up their minds where it was supposed to be going. The ending is rushed and disappointing. As though ideas had stalled and it just needed to be finished. It seems to me that many writers, when they have to resort to and rely on other co-authors (Clancy, Patterson, Cussler and now Griffin, to name but a few)should just 'pack it in'.

Format: Hardcover
"Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?" -- Galatians 4:16

Who can you trust? That's the key issue captured by this book.

It's 1943 and the Germans are clearly going to lose the war. Some Germans want to eliminate Hitler, a goal that the OSS would like to aid. Others want to escape the Allies and re-establish Fascism in Argentina. Still others are looking to make money any way they can. Into that mix, young Cletus Frade finds himself as the key to leading history one way or the other. As the book opens, he's asked to help a German prisoner of war escape to become an advocate for peace. Life, death, and the fate of the world continually depend on his judgment, especially about who to confide in.

This novel has many impressive qualities that will make it memorable for anyone who reads it: fascinating insights into lots of famous people, fitting in historical events in a smooth way, clever descriptions of complex negotiations, poignant references to family and faith, good-hearted commitment to righting wrongs, fascinating references to technology, and villains you love to hate. The sheer number of characters and their interactions provide enough food for thought to keep you wondering about the brilliance of the authors for a long time.

Seeing World War II from the perspective of Argentina is a brilliant way to make the story stand out. That setting also makes the Americans and Germans seem different than they do in an "us" versus "them" story.

The book's main weakness is that having carried into the story so many characters and complexities, it's not simple or quick to resolve them. So the action moves a bit ponderously at times. But it's the kind of real-life slowness that often affects matters of great import, adding a note of further reality to the story.
