August 6, 1943: In his brief career in the Office of Strategic Services, 24-year-old Cletus Frade has already been involved in a lot of unusual situations, but nothing like the one he's in now, standing with a German lieutenant colonel named Wilhelm Frogger in a Mississippi prisoner-of-war detention facility. Frade's job? To help Frogger escape. Frogger's parents are in Frade's custody in Argentina, because of their involvement in a secret German plan to establish safe havens for senior Nazi officials in South America, and the younger Frogger has agreed to help find out what they know.
Even more important, however, is the secret within the secret. Before he was captured in Africa, Frogger was part of a conspiracy; its goal: to assassinate Adolf Hitler. If the OSS can use his knowledge and connections to nudge that plot along, even just a little bit, they may be able to end this war right now.
But Frade is not the only one who knows about the Froggers. Even as he stands there in Mississippi, a troop of Germans and Argentinians, led by a Colonel Juan Perón, is on its way to kill the parents and, after them, Frade himself. His career in the OSS may have been brief - but it may just be about to be over.
Filled with the special flair that Griffin's fans have come to expect, The Honor of Spies is another rousing adventure from one of our finest storytellers.

If you are reading these books in order, skip the first two hours of Honor and Spies, as it is covered in the last 10 minutes of Death and Honor. Very frustrating as you wade through events you already know about, the story does not advance at all in this part. Griffin is big on revisiting information but this is the most aggravating case yet, as it is indeed a great otherwise tight series (I downloaded the Double Agents to kill a few days until this last in the series came out, don't bother with Double Agents, very weak). Honor and Spies picks up after the two hours rehashing the last book. Start two hours in and miss absolutely nothing.

I don't understand the negatives
Yes there are a lot of characters in this story, but each one is fleshed out to be a complete person. Granted, I did get a little confused with the code names Teapot, Teacup, etc., but it fit the plot. The base story is not that complex but the interaction of the characters requires the listener to pay attention.
My only complaint is the fact that Audible refuses to indicate the numerical sequence of books in a series. Had I known I missed one of the series I would have bought it first. Audible just lost a sale because I won't read a story backwards.
