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.

Incredible step-by-step narrative of die-hard NAZI activities in Argentina just after WWII.

The plotting entails a bit of Texan bravado, often tongue-in-cheek, German and Argentine culture, military strategy and love stories.

Really interesting, and really enjoyable.

Too "talky" by far, though the voiceover actor does his best to try and keep things interesting. After 8 discs or so it feels like sitting through an uninspired PowerPoint presentation on the end of WWII and South America, minus the visuals.

2/3 of this novel is interesting and well written. As for the other third, it's so trite that I couldn't wait to get through it. This is no more than an average story for Mr. Griffin and is a bit of a letdown. 6 of 10 stars
