Overview

The #1 New York Times-bestselling series returns-and the stakes have never been higher.

Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded-but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

But the first opportunity, when it comes, is shocking: A FedEx package arrives, bearing photos of barrels containing some of the most dangerous biohazard materials on earth, all of which were supposed to have been destroyed during a raid on a secret Russian factory in the Congo. Who has them, and what do they want? Castillo has a feeling he's not going to like the answers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Griffin and Butterworth's long and exceedingly detailed sixth presidential agent thriller (after Black Ops), the U.S. president has ordered Lt. Col. Carlos "Charley" Castillo to disband his secret organization, the Office of Organizational Analysis, and to "fall off the face of the earth." When the president dies of a ruptured aorta, Charley elects instead to reorganize his outfit. He soon becomes entangled in intrigue involving several barrels of virulent biological weaponry and a demand from Vladimir Putin to return the two Russian spies who defected in Black Ops. The new U.S. president, who hates Charley's guts, wants to turn him over to Putin along with the two defectors. Charley and his intrepid gang engage in meticulous planning, fill in the backstory, banter among themselves, and fly around in exotic planes. Series fans who love these characters will find the novel fulfilling; newcomers and those expecting a big payoff will be disappointed. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Charley Castillo is no longer employed by the government, but neither he nor his pals are out of work. The super antiterrorist expert, last seen in Black Ops, has formed his own privately funded unit of experts. This time they have to find a deadly biological weapon they'd all thought had been destroyed. To make matters worse, Charley's enemies and rivals from years and novels past are coming out of the woodwork, thanks, in part, to an inept new president who is furious that secrets had been kept from him. He wants Charley crushed even though this places the country in jeopardy.Verdict As always with the recent thrillers by Griffin and his son, so much is spent on reprising and explaining old characters that much of the action, such as it is, is lost. The authors' fans will find this latest installment of the "Presidential Agent" series comfortable and enjoyable, while potential newer readers are likely to be turned off by the slow-moving, tedious, and complex tale. Outlaws is a thriller without thrills or action. Purchase where there is demand.—Robert Conroy, Warren, MI

Meet the Author

W. E. B. Griffin

W.E.B Griffin is the author of six bestselling series.

William E. Butterworth IV has worked closely with his father for nearly a decade, and is the coauthor of six previous books with him, most recently The Honor of Spies and The Vigilantes.

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.

    A decent read for Griffin fans

    As a long time fan of the books of WEB Griffin, I had some concerns about this book, given that the last book co-authored with his son was considerably less than wonderful. In fact, it is fair to say that the last book in the Badge of Honor series pretty much killed the series.

    This latest offering in the Presidential Agent series worked. It wrapped up a lot of loose ends, but entirely too much time was wasted on re-telling the backstory-this happens a lot in Griffin books, but this book took the practice to extremes. Regular readers of Griffin's books don't need to have the story re-told, and too much information is thrown at new readers in too short a time.

    And, the person who edited the book for story continuity failed. For example, the Speaker of The House is referred to as female at one point, and later in the book is referred to as male. Someone should have caught that error and others.

    All in all, a good read (except as noted), with believable characters.

    Clendennen For President

    No one will say that this is a perfect book, but I sure enjoyed it, as I have all of the Presidential Agent novels. Those who read it will know that I am kidding with my title, but who would you want, Montvale? Fans probably want Charlie Costillo, but if that happened it'd be like Jack Ryan becoming president, and no one would believe that! So, fans of the novel are probably happy,and those just starting are advised to be patient. The story builds, it gets better.

    Typical Griffin ...

    That is, it's a very good read. Griffin is one of the few contemporary writers whose work seems fresh no matter how often you read it. The Outlaws didn't advance the story line as much as I would have preferred, and the character background provided for first-time readers was so extensive it seemed formulaic. (If new readers can't pick up what they need to know through context, they should start the series from the beginning.) Nonetheless, I'm very happy to add this book to my Griffin collection -- shelves of old friends which are reread over and over again.

    Better and better

    If your a fan of the previous 5 books you'll love this one. The books seem to get better and better with each new one. I'm really looking forward to the release of the newest one Covert Warriors.

    Skip It!

    I can't believe that I paid $15 for the most boring rehash of the previous 5 books!
    I think the son did this one and didn't bother to read the previous books...just cut and paste the significant facts together and call it a new book and charge money!!! I kid you not; 383 pages and I went back and added it up to just over a third of that being rehash! I saw that the next installment is due out in Dec....I'm definetly waiting for the public library to pay for it, and then I'll check it out. Tis a shame...I so liked reading WEB's books. (sigh)

    Couls have been better

    This was no near as good as the other books in the series. Way too much back story and some of the major characters seemed to disappear as the story went on. I still can't figure out why all of Griffin's characters talk the exact same way and constantly use the same phrases. Clendennen was a good addition to the series, but get rid of Sweaty and add more McNab and Two Gun Yung.
