Reviews

Bestseller Griffin's ponderous third Presidential Agent novel picks up where the previous entry, The Hostage, left off, following U.S. Army Maj. Carlos "Charley" Castillo, a troubleshooter who takes orders directly from the president, as he fumbles about in South America and Europe. Castillo and his crew of specialists are trying to figure out who ordered the murder of American diplomat Jean-Paul Lorimer, who was shot to death in Uruguay while under suspicion of various international misdeeds, including a shady food-for-oil conspiracy in Iraq. Long stretches of dialogue and description come across more as showcases for Griffin's knowledge than as solid narrative, while Castillo and his cohorts never rise beyond their assigned roles. Fans will miss the more captivating heroes of Griffin's Brotherhood of War or the Corps series. Author tour. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

This third book in Griffin's "Presidential Agent" series (after By Order of the President and The Hostage) is as equally impressive as its predecessors. In the wake of a promotion to U.S. army lieutenant colonel and a presidential finding that makes series hero Charlie Castillo the new chief of the Office of Organizational Analysis, this book picks up where Hostage left off. Jetting among Washington, DC, Europe, Argentina, and Uruguay, our regular cast of characters, along with some interesting additions, are hot on the trail of the murderers of diplomats and missing millions that are connected to a UN/Iraqi oil-for-food scandal. This story mixes mystery, adventure, and a good deal about the internal workings (and politics) of the army and the U.S. intelligence community. Dick Hill provides a wonderfully rich reading of a complex subject. Highly recommended.-Scott R. DiMarco, Mansfield Univ. of Pennsylvania Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Praise for the Presidential Agent novels: "Punchy prose that connects like a right hook." -CHICAGO TRIBUNE "Griffin is well on his way to a credible American James Bond franchise. It's slick as hell." -MONSTERS AND CRITICS
