Overview

The first two novels in W. E. B. Griffin's exciting new Presidential Agent series, By Order of the President and The Hostage, immediately raced up the bestseller lists-The Hostage debuting at #1. Told in "punchy prose that connects like a right hook" (Chicago Tribune), they were further proof that "Griffin just keeps on getting better" (Booklist).

The Hunters picks up right where The Hostage left off. Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars in the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal have lead Castillo and his team to an estancia in Uruguay, where, to his shock, the man they are seeking is himself murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the money chain, those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They've left just enough of a trail, though, for Castillo to pick up the scent, and, with carte blanche from the president, to follow it wherever it takes him, he ends up . . . well, not exactly where he expected . . .

Brimming with rich characters, strong action, and cutting-edge drama, this is Griffin writing at the height of his powers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Griffin's ponderous third Presidential Agent novel picks up where the previous entry, The Hostage, left off, following U.S. Army Maj. Carlos "Charley" Castillo, a troubleshooter who takes orders directly from the president, as he fumbles about in South America and Europe. Castillo and his crew of specialists are trying to figure out who ordered the murder of American diplomat Jean-Paul Lorimer, who was shot to death in Uruguay while under suspicion of various international misdeeds, including a shady food-for-oil conspiracy in Iraq. Long stretches of dialogue and description come across more as showcases for Griffin's knowledge than as solid narrative, while Castillo and his cohorts never rise beyond their assigned roles. Fans will miss the more captivating heroes of Griffin's Brotherhood of War or the Corps series. Author tour. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
This third entry in Griffin's exciting and timely "Presidential Agent" series begins literally minutes after the end of the previous novel, The Hostage, and again features the irreverent but highly capable Charley Castillo and all the other ensemble characters. The plot here focuses on the UN "oil for food" scandal and the murderers who will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their own national interests. Castillo is so busy chasing the bad guys that he almost forgets his girlfriend, who's recuperating in a hospital. Oops. Exhibiting a thorough knowledge of how the government and the military work (or don't work) and a detailed knowledge of multitudes of weapons systems, Griffin offers another novel that is fast-paced, exciting, and great fun to read. Griffin's loyal readers will hope that more will be coming soon. Recommended for all popular fiction collections. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/06.]-Robert Conroy, Warren, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Griffin returns to chronicle the international adventures of heroic presidential special agent Charley Castillo (The Hostage, 2006). Too modest and too rich to be just another rampaging Ollie North, Major C.G. "Charley," polyglot love child of a German newspaper heiress and an even richer Texas aviator, has been charged by his doting president with the formation of a special-operations group answering only to the White House. The president wants Charley to clear up the mess left behind when he and his ragtag band of straight-shooting marines, honest CIA operatives, brainy Asian F.B.I. agents and their admiring Argentine opposite numbers located and almost snatched the perfidious high-level U.N. bureaucrat who absconded to rural Uruguay with 16 million dollars rightfully belonging to an international ring of oil-for-food swindlers. The snatch of the bureaucrat had been foiled by a black-clad gang of seemingly unidentifiable "Ninjas" armed with untraceable weapons, one of whom took out the bureaucrat even as Charley was reaching for him. The Ninjas were all wiped out, but the oil-for-food thieves want their money back and they want equally to eliminate anyone with clues about their identity, especially elderly Hungarian man-about-town and ace reporter Eric Kocian, a favorite of Charley's. Armed with the disputed 16 million bucks snatched from the late bureaucrat's secret accounts, girded with a promotion to Lt. Colonel and staffed with the best office administrator on the planet, Charley rounds up his troops and swears them into the new unit and off they fly in Charley's Gulfstream, back and forth from Argentina to Germany to Hungary to Texas to Argentina to Uruguay, accompanied on much ofthe trip by Kocian's huge and adorable Flemish sheepdog, until they at last clear up most of the mysteries, leaving just enough unsolved for a sequel. Notable mostly for the digs at a CIA agent remarkably similar to Valerie Plame.

Meet the Author

W. E. B. Griffin
W. E. B. Griffin is also the author of the bestselling Corps, Brotherhood of War, Badge of Honor, Men at War, and Honor Bound series. He has been invested into the orders of St. George of the U.S. Armor Association and St. Andrew of the U.S. Army Aviation Association, and is a life member of the U.S. Special Operations Association; Gaston-Lee Post 5660, Veterans of Foreign Wars; China Post #1 in Exile of the American Legion; and the Police Chiefs Association of Southeast Pennsylvania, South New Jersey, and Delaware. He is an honorary life member of the U.S. Army Otter & Caribou Association, the U.S. Army Special Forces Association, the U.S. Marine Corps Raider Association, and the USMC Combat Correspondents Association.

Biography

With more than 40 million books in print in more than 10 languages, bestselling novelist W.E.B. Griffin enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a master of the military thriller.

Griffin began his career not as a writer but as a military man like the type he would eventually make millions writing about. After growing up in both New York City and the Philadelphia suburb of Wallingford, Pennsylvania, Griffin took the step in 1946 that -- little did he know at the time -- would set the course for his literary life: He enlisted in the United States Army. After finishing basic training, he went through counterintelligence instruction at Fort Holabird, New Jersey, and was assigned to the Army of Occupation in Germany under Major General I. D. White, commander of the U.S. Constabulary.

In 1951, while attending Philips University, in Marburg an der Lahn, in Germany, Griffin was recalled to active duty during the Korean War. He again served under General White, both at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and in Korea, where he earned the Expert Combat Infantry Badge and served as a combat correspondent and as acting X Corps (Group) information officer. Upon his release from active duty in 1953, Griffin was appointed chief of the Publications Division of the Army Signal Aviation Test & Support Activity at the Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker, Alabama.

Although he first wrote under various pen names, Griffin didn't begin writing his bestselling string of military novels until he was well into his 50s. His first Brotherhood of War novel, The Lieutenants, was published in 1982 and touched off Griffin's well-known reputation for writing with historical accuracy and fascinating detail. Publishers Weekly noted that this first novel "captures the rhythms of WW II army life... in an absorbing account of life among military men." Griffin would go on to pen additional books in the Brotherhood of War sequence and to launch other bestselling series -- including The Corps, Badge of Honor, Honor Bound, and Men at War, among others.

While Griffin's public persona is a bit of an enigma -- he's not one to make the talk show rounds -- it's clear that he both knows and appreciates his readers, especially his fellow military men. On his official web site, Griffin reflects, "Nothing honors me more than a serviceman, veteran, or cop telling me how much he enjoys reading my books."

Good To Know

Griffin was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Military Fiction from Norwich University.

He was vested in the Order of St. George by the U.S. Armor Association.

Griffin addressed the Corps of Cadets for the United States Military Academy.

    Not up to par with previous books

    Having read several of Griffin's earlier books with enthusiasm I started reading this new series about Agent Castillo. This is the third in that series and it di not as well written as earlier books. Apart from the constant referring to all females as "Mr. so and so", I am offended by the primary character constantly saying "Jesus Christ!" in response to about every new development. As a Christian I disturbs me. Ironically Castillo say's "f*ck" in front of the President and female Secretary of State and apologizes to her for his language. Later on he says "Jesus Christ" in her presence and makes no similar apology.

    I won't be buying any more in this particular series.

    Not impressed!

    There were a lot of errors in this e-book. The editor must have been asleep. For example, thoughout the entire book, the author would use "Mr." instead of "Mrs.". It got to be very annoying. This same error was in the second book too. I originally wanted to read the entire presidential series, but not now, it's too frustrating. I'm going back to reading Clive Cussler!

    typical Griffin

    I have been a WEB Griffin reader for many years now. I have gotten used to his going back to parts of previous books. Maybe he gets paid by the word! The Hunters, however must have gone past an editor who assumed that the author got everything right. Griffin used the masculine Mr. no matter which character he is reffering to. I am only about one fourth through the book, and am finding it difficult. Is he talking about Mr. Masterson, or Mrs. Masterson? All names are preceeded by Mr. Hope raeders don't have as hard a time as I am

    Excellent characters with a good plot. Some very interesting twists & turns leading to an unexpected finish. A good chase with delightful character interaction. Leaves me purchasing the next book in the series so I can keep the story going a bit longer. Highly recommended.

    The plot is fabulous and for a reader that has visited most locations in the book it's extremely accurate. C G Castillo is an excellent protagonist and 3 or 4 Castillos would help make the world a safer place.

    What's going on?

    As I had not read any previous books in this series, it took quite a while to catch up to what was going on. When I did, the story was entertaining if a bit convenient where it came to everything working out for the main characters.

    GRIFFIN SCORES AGAIN!!

    I have read and listended to previous GRIFFIN works and enjoy his style of writing and topics he chooses to write about. This one so tweaked my interest that I found that I just had to have the other three in the Presidential Agent series. Also I found myself wanting to sit down and listen to this until I was finished with the story. I am listening to a second one now and it as absorbing and enjoyable as this one. Being ex-milirary I love his use of the 24 hour clock and the day, date, location headings. I only wish I had found these books in order. I came into this with this one and it was like coming into the middle of great movie. Keep up the good work GRIFFIN I love military stories with a great plot.

    Lumping the Presential series together, it is a worthwile read.

    I have read the entire series the only problem I found is tht the cast of charters remains almost the same and only the situations change. Reading the entire set is really a labor of love.

    W.E.B. Griffin does it again. Fast paced and a real page turner!

    I hadn't read Hostage (the previous book in the series) in about 2 years, but within 5 minutes I was able to remember everything from HOSTAGE. WEB Griffin has created characters that have a authenticity to them so that you can remember them. This store starts where the previous book ended. Could Lt Col Castillo be the next Oliver North?<BR/><BR/>Well worth the time to read this series.

    The Hunters is another thrilling chapter in the long line of successes by Mr. Griffin.

    I have enjoyed every W.E.B. Griffin book I have read, which includes every series except the police series, which is next on my list. The Hunters is a fast-paced thriller that will not allow you to put the book down until you finish. The Hunters is one more exciting chapter in a long line of successes by Mr. Griffin. If you like military stories and current events, you will love this series and in particular The Hunters.
