Publisher's Summary

It's 1942. A Marine aviator, an Army paratrooper and demolitions expert, and a non-com radio man are on an impossible mission for the OSS - sabotaging the resupply of German ships and submarines by any means necessary! First Lieutenant Cletus Frade is fresh from Guadalcanal. He teams up with Second Lieutenant Anthony Pelosi and Sergeant David Ettinger for the most critical OSS operation of the war.
Under the direction of the mysterious Colonel Loman, they venture into a simmering stew of German and Allied agents, collaborators, and government security thugs, of men and women hiding their pasts and plotting their futures - all in supposedly neutral city of Buenos Aires.

Critic Reviews

"Griffin's reconstruction of upper-class Argentine society in the 1940s provides an exotic and credible setting for a tautly written story whose twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the last page." ( Publishers Weekly)

Worth the listen

The book started slowly but as you listen you begin to like the main characters, father, son, and the other characters linked to them. I'm not normally a fan of military based novels but will puchase other books in the series by this author. I would have given this book 4.5 to 5 stars with the exception that it ended a bit abruptly. I would have liked a bit more follow up on the relationships the author developed throughout the novel but still well worth listening to.

An Enjoyable Listen

Any additional comments?

I read the series years ago, now I want to revisit them all in audio format. About the only complaint that I had was that someone should have told Dick Hill that the name Jorge is pronounced "Hor-Hey" and not "Hor-Gay". That was just annoying.
Other than that I enjoyed it.
