    From Publishers Weekly

    When DEA Special Agent Byron J. Timmons is kidnapped in Asunción, Paraguay, at the start of bestseller Griffin's rousing fourth presidential agent novel (after The Hunters), Timmons's grandfather asks his friend, the mayor of Chicago, for help. The mayor passes the request on to the U.S. president, who assigns his personal in-house expert, Lt. Col. C.G. Castillo, to rescue agent Timmons. Castillo is familiar with the territory, having sorted out various terrorist and drug dealer threats in South America in earlier books in the series. Castillo spends a lot of time in meetings and flying around the globe in the course of setting up the big shoot-out. After the brief, long-awaited climax, everyone pats each other on the back and gets ready for the next adventure, which is sure to pick up the loose threads left untied from the just-completed mission. In less accomplished hands, this would be a recipe for boredom, but Griffin pulls it off, leaving satisfied thriller readers hankering for more. (Jan.)

    Pressestimmen

    "The Castillo novels offer timely plots and enough firepower to keep the action--adventure crowd happy" Booklist on The Hunters "Griffin just keeps on getting better with a formula that... is exciting and great fun" Library Journal on The Hostage "This is typical Griffin, which means plenty of action, high-level intrigue, interesting characters, flip dialog, romance, and a whole lot of drinking and other carrying on. His fans will enjoy it immensely. Recommended for most popular fiction collections" Library Journal on By Order of the President"

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Ein neues Buch in der neuesten Serie von Griffin 24. April 2008
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    Wieder ein gelunges Buch von Griffin. Er schildert spannend die Intrigen in den oberen Rängen der Macht und verwebt dies mit dem privaten Leben. Und dies alles vor dem Hintergrund einer spannenden Agentenstory.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Fourth in the Presidential Agent series 10. Januar 2008
    Von Michael T Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
    This is the fourth book in the Presidential Agent series and it introduces a new plot. The first novel had a story about a stolen airliner. The next two concerned the kidnapping of an American diplomat in Argentina. This novel is set in the same period of a few weeks when all these adventures occur but has a new plot line. The first one-third is marred a bit by excessive exposition in filling in the back story of the first three books. It is a bit annoying as new information about Charley Castillo is included, along with the summary of the previous books. Because of that, the reader who knows the story cannot skip the exposition. Once that section is over, about a third of the way into the book, the pace picks up and this is another good yarn. A couple of unlikely developments suggests more sequels to come. The characters are interesting and the plot is good but this is a half step below the others. Another reviewer suggested that the other series are better and I agree. Still, if you like WEB Griffin's novels, you will enjoy this one. It is all set in South America and does mention the damage from Hurricane Katrina that occurred in the Gulf Coast area that is the setting of parts of the earlier books. I recommend it but will probably not reread it like I do many of the others

    1.0 von 5 Sternen Griffin just drags on and on 14. Januar 2008
    Von T. Dunn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I have read all of the books in this series. I enjoy the lead character, Castillo. This character deserves better than what Griffin dishes out in this installment. It drags on and on and on. It reviews old material, digs up old cronies, sends the lead character back and forth across the US and South America. The book runs 422 pages and you will have to painfully read 400 pages before there is any action or intrigue. The entire book is devoted to backstory and planning the logistics of the raid to save the kidnapped DEA agent. Griffin devotes too much ink to trivial day to day activities like eating, drinking and Max the dog's bowel and bladder habits. There is a personal revelation for Castillo that is so poorly developed. It was completely unbelievable the way it unfolded. This will be the last of this series that I will buy in the hardbound version. I may not even pay for the paperback versions without rave reviews.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Mixed Bag 3. Januar 2008
    Von Peggy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
    As you can tell by the book description, Charlie is tasked with the job of finding a missing DEA agent. It seems that the drug dealers will kidnap an agent right before a big transport, and make him a junkie, then release him, hooked on coke or crack. Pegleg, a friend of the DEA agent (former Special forces- who lost a leg) turns to Charlie to help his friend.

    As a female reader, I found the book a mixed bag. I thought it was choppy,(we reading about the mission, then all of a sudden we are in 1992) and improbable(I not sure of the size of Argentina, Paraguay or Uruguay but it seems pretty improbable that an individual could find someone without inside information) and the women poorly drawn.(women hate Charlie but get drunk and fall in bed with him). I also wish that I had kept track of the number of people that Charlie has told about the presidental finding because it seems at a drop of a hat, he is swearing someone to silence. What the book has is the return of the main characters, and their interaction in getting the job done, which seems realistic and thought out. I like Charlie, and I like all his band of merry men. I like reading about how the good guys win so I will continue to read Mr. Griffin books even if his women are stuck in the 50's.

    1.0 von 5 Sternen I'm done with WEB 17. Januar 2008
    Von Movus Cleveland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I've bought every one of WEB Griffin's books, many more than once. He used to have a talent for character development and action but no more. How many pages of guys with good connections, flouting the rules, chuckling and Famous Grouse can one person handle? I've reached my limit, that's for sure. It's so much writing and never any action. Even at the end the action isn't described at all just the aftermath. To say I'm disappointed at this point would be a huge understatement, maybe he let's his son do all the writing now and that explains it. Either way, do not buy this book, you will be bored and disappointed.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Charley Castillo Rides Again 1. Januar 2008
    Von ROBIN MCCALL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
    This is another great book about Charley Castillo and his band of Presidential operators. Read this book immediately, you will love it. I could not put it down, but I did stop to get four hours of sleep. Nobody writes about the military and special operations as well as WEB Griffin, because he knows the people so well, and they constantly feed him with new information about their methods and activities.

    The book starts in Argentina. A young DEA agent approaches Castillo for help in freeing his kidnapped partner, Timmons, because no one else is interesting in doing anything about it. As events unfold, it becomes obvious that the kidnapping is an indication that a much larger problem exists. Eventually the President is involved by a political ally, and he orders Castillo's agents to free Timmons, over the objection of almost everybody else. The operation is put in motion, becoming a hunt that is as elaborate as the one for Osama bin Laden, involving new good guys and new bad guys, and operating primarily in Paraguay and Argentina.

    This is another great book about how heroes overcome major obstacles in their efforts to serve their country. It shows the good, the bad, and the ugly about interagency cooperation, modeling true life.
