Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded-but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight. But the first opportunity, when it comes, is shocking: A FedEx package arrives, bearing photos of barrels containing some of the most dangerous biohazard materials on earth, all of which were supposed to have been destroyed during a raid on a secret Russian factory in the Congo. Who has them, and what do they want? Castillo has a feeling he's not going to like the answers

The year is 1943, and Argentina is officially neutral, but crawling with every kind of spy, sympathizer, and military official imaginable. The hero is Cletus Frade, a Marine pilot recruited by the OSS, with strong family ties to Argentina, and a lot on his hands. OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan has asked him to set up his own official-but-really-OSS airline in Argentina, using "loaned" Lockheed Lodestars and Constellations. Of even more concern are two interwoven German operations: a government scheme for Jews outside the Fatherland to purchase the freedom of their relatives in concentration camps, who will then be transported to Argentina and Uruguay; and a plan called Operation Phoenix

The hostage by W. E. B Griffin( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Polish and held by 2,573 libraries worldwide
By Order of the President, the first novel in W.E.B. Griffin's crackling new Presidential Agent series, won immediate acclaim from critics and fans alike. Charley Castillo works with the Department of Homeland Security, but more and more he is the man to whom the president turns when he needs an investigation done discreetly. And no situation demands discretion more than the one before them now. An American diplomat's wife is kidnapped in Argentina, and her husband murdered before her eyes. Her children will be next, she is warned, if she doesn't tell them where her brother is-a brother, as it turns out, who may know quite a bit about the burgeoning UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal. There is an awful lot of money flying around, and an awful lot of hands reaching out to grab it-and some of those hands don't mind shedding as much blood as it takes. Brimming with rich characters, strong action, and cutting-edge drama, this is Griffin writing at the height of his powers
The honor of spies by W. E. B Griffin( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 2,505 libraries worldwide
Publishers Weekly Review Set in 1943, the tedious fifth entry in bestseller Griffin's sprawling Honor Bound series, coauthored with son Butterworth, picks up where Death and Honor (2008) left off, with Don Cletus Frade, a U.S. Marine Corps major, still trying to expose two Nazi secret missions: Operation Phoenix, which concerns large sums of money being smuggled into Argentina to be used by high-ranking Nazis who plan to flee the Reich if Germany loses the war, and another program that ransoms rich Jews out of Germany. Most of the many characters continue to scheme against one another and endlessly discuss their plots, coups, and assassination attempts. Brief, violent altercations occasionally interrupt the talk. As usual, the plot abruptly stops, presumably scheduled to resume in the next installment. Newcomers are advised to start with the first of the series. Those who prefer action in their WWII fiction should go elsewhere. (Jan.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information. From: Reed Elsevier Inc. Copyright Reed Business Information Library Journal Review From: Reed Elsevier Inc. Copyright Reed Business Information Booklist Review The Honor Bound series, set during World War II, rolls steadily along. In this installment, OSS officer Cletus Frade has a tricky assignment: to help a German lieutenant escape a Mississippi internment camp so that Frade can use the man to make sure a German plot to assassinate Hitler succeeds. Frade also wants to find out what the man's parents are up to in South America, where, rumor has it, the Germans are preparing for the arrival of senior Nazi officials, who will live there after the war. This is an extremely complex novel, with a large cast and, unfortunately, a lot of clutter, especially in the opening scenes. The story takes quite a while to get moving, and when it finally does, it's frequently interrupted by lengthy chunks of expository dialogue. Still, the authors' many fans will likely embrace the novel with open arms (even if casual readers may be a little less forgiving).--Pitt, David Copyright 2010 Booklist From: Syndetics Solutions, Inc.
