Fed up, the President of the United States turns to an outside investigator, an Army intelligence officer serving as special assistant to the Director of Homeland Security, to determine the truth. Major Carlos Guillermo Castillo, known as Charley, is the son of a German mother and a Tex-Mex father, a Medal of Honor winner who died in Vietnam. A pilot, West Point graduate, and veteran of Desert Storm and the Special Forces, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts and the reality behind the facts. Traveling undercover, he flies to Africa, and there, helped and hindered by unexpected allies and determined enemies, begins to untangle a story of frightening dimensions, a story that, unless he can do something about it, will end very, very badly.

I have always liked W.E.B. Griffin's books. I am happy to see them in audible. Would like to see the unabridged editions. Once you get a handle on the characters the books become more fun. His detail and military knowledge are a compelling part of the books. Although the characters are somewhat "super hero", why not? This is what makes the books fun to read. I think this kind of support for our military is just what public the needs to characterize the men and women who fight and die for this country. I hope this is the beginning of a long series of books with these characters.

I wait restlessly for each new Griffin book, wishing that he would write more than one a year. I just wish Audible would get the unabridged versions of his 9 books each in his Army and Marine Corps series, and 7 in his two series about the OSS. They are all worth re-reading each time a new book comes out in the series. This is the only author whose books I re-read on a regular basis and would enjoy listening to over and over again.
