Publisher's Summary

October 1945: The Germans and Japanese have surrendered. For Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, it should be time to pack up - but they have far more important things to do.
Chief among them is the protection of their assets, especially the human ones. In the closing months of the war, the United States made a secret deal with the head of German intelligence’s Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence - in particular the identity of the Soviet spies in the U.S. atomic bomb program - his people would be spirited to safety in Argentina. Only a handful of people know about it. If word got out, all hell would break loose, and the U.S. would lose some of its most valuable sources and secrets.
Meanwhile, in Argentina, a U-boat captain pops up out of the blue and surrenders his submarine and crew. And in the American Zone of Occupation in Germany, a young counterintelligence agent pursues an unusual assignment perhaps a little too vigorously. The consequences of both actions will affect not only Frade and company, but everything they’re working on.
Now things are really going to get complicated.
Filled with the special flair that Griffin’s fans have come to expect from him, Empire and Honor is another rousing adventure from one of our finest storytellers.

WW2 spy thriller with an Argentinian/OSS twist. Unusual take which works well. Read the first few novels first to get the best picture of what's going on.

Surprising Good Sequel

Where does Empire and Honor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is near the top and that's a pretty good thing


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

As always it left things that needed answers, but then it's a series


Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

He did a very nice job with all, Peron was nicely done


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

(don't fly for me Argentina?-just kidding) As the last world war ended a cold war began and in Argentina Cletus Frade calls on all his resources to try and stop Nazi's from selling uranium to the Soviets.


Any additional comments?

This is the best one in the series in a long while formula driven it picked back up a lot of loose threads from prior books, Peron is back in the picture in an almost believable plot twist. Cleatus however acts likes he's hungover the whole book, grumpy and over reacting.
Went a bit too far I thought, but his "little brother" is straight out of the mold and excellent.
I enjoy the series a great deal
