Publishers Weekly

The solid fourth Honor Bound thriller from bestseller Griffin and son Butterworth picks up where 2000's Secret Honor left off, with OSS agent Cletus Frade still tangling with high-level Nazis in supposedly neutral Argentina in 1943. Fans of WWII-era military fiction, many of whom will likely know little about the South American theater during this period, will welcome this encyclopedic tome, which leaves no small or large historic fact unturned, including recently discovered information exposing the involvement of future Argentine leader Juan Perón in the Nazi cause. In a story that's more spy-vs.-spy than military action, the authors meticulously recreate place and time. Those seeking an easier entry into Griffin's military novels might be advised to start with one of the better-known series such as Presidential Agents (By Order of the President, etc.) or Men at War (The Last Heroes, etc.).

Granted that we are dealing with fiction in this series, one must accept that it is based on some real events in the history of WW2. You need only to take an evening walk in cities like Buenos Aires, Santiago, Sao Paulo and in some little towns that are more German than towns in Germany to realize that there are an awful lot of blond Latins with Teutonic last names. Having a fiction based on real happenings makes it very, very entertaining. It is hard for our present generations to believe the intensity of the hardcore German National Socialists in the 21st century but having personally seen the reaction of former SS in Germany during the last year of occupation (1954), the events that form the basis for this book are believable real. Also, one may not overlook that there were Germans who not only were quality people but who risked their lives to try to stop the harm to their country. It was my privilege to know some of them. Back to the book - accept its premise and enjoy the behavior of real people in its chapters. Personally, I am hoping for just one more book which will wrap up the saga.

I bought the first book in this series and before I even finished it, I went out and bought the next two because I enjoyed it so much. Just as I was finishing the third installment, I was really excited when saw this latest entry in the series and purchased it immediately. What a disapointment. Not only is it in the "deluxe" format so it costs more for no reason but more than half of the book is spent rehashing what went on in the first three books and a lot of it was word for word. I kept having feelings of deja vu since I literally put down one book in the series and picked up the next so they were all fresh in my mind. Perhaps I wouldn't have minded so much if I had read them years apart but giving that I read them 1-2-3-4, I found it annoying. Books 2 and 3 had references to earlier events in the story but didn't replay them word for word so the references were fine.

Interesting to know how Aerolineas Argentinas got their start back in the 1940's. I had heard rumors but did not believe. Know better now and it makes a lot of sense.

Not as well written as Griffen does. butterworth uses much of previous book in series. No much new material, books that have his name on are shorter and not as intresting. butterworth really dropped the ball. I have really enjoied Mr. Griffins books. They have been hard to put down they made me fell I was ther in the story. Now it's just a book. Very disappointed.

It really doesn't matter which of the Honor bound books you read, Clete is out there and I guess my favorite charactor was Enrico and his shot gun. The OSS team was a team worth working in and Dona Dorthea is HOT
