If you've read the first two of this series-- don't bother reading the first 120 pages or so of this one. All it does is recap the emotions, actions, and feelings of the first two books, and in a wordy, almost boring fashion.

The remainder of this review will be listed as pros and cons..


Pro: The author manages to employ a number of cool historical characters and goes to great lengths to distinguish between those of German descent and those who are true Nazis. The characters add depth and breadth

I am really getting hooked on this series. Having finally found and read the first volume in the seri\es, I went to the library and gathered up the next four and I am happily plowing through them when I should be working.

Major Freiherr (Baron) Hans-Peter von Wachstein is working very hard on keeping his skirts clean so that all the other Germans at the German Embassy won’t realize that he is the one that revealed to Cletus where the special shipment of valuables for funding Operation Phoenix was

i always enjoy W.E.B. Griffin's books because his characters are intereting and well fleshed out. He has written a lot of different series and one of my favorites is the Honor series about Cletus Frade and the OSS activities in Argentina and South America during WWII. I read this one, the third of the series, out of order, having already read the 4th 5th and 6th ones. Now that the 7th one is out i will go back and read one and two. I could easily see a movie or even TV series on these characters ...more

I enjoy these books emensely. Yes, there are some minor flaws but I think that's a matter of taste. I still like all of the characters and the Argentine point of view about WW2 is interesting.

As with the three others I've read in this series (I accidentally read the fifth one first, not realizing it was part of a series), I really liked the story and the history involved as I really don't know all that much about Argentina's history. I did NOT like all the sex and really tried to skip those parts when I could see them coming. I felt more suspense in this book than in the others as I worried through the book about the outcome for one of the heroes and it was a real cliffhanger.

Very little action. A lot of positioning by all the players. Von Wachstein gets caught in the end which leaves one eager for the next book. The most exciting part was when Clete told Almond he would shoot him and then left him in Bariloche. Can't wait

Strange how much of this "could" be true. Sure there was much of this from real german people who hated the Nazis!!
