This is Griffin's 5th installment in his Honor Bound Series. Marine Aviator, Major Cletus Frade, is back and still working for the O.S.S. as a spy in Argentina.
The Nazis have begun Operation Phoenix, an egotistical plot to move high-ranking Nazi officers and party members out of Germany and relocate them to Argentina, under phony names and passports, before the war is lost to the Allies. They also are stockpiling massive amounts of gold and precious stones, colleted from prominent Jewish families paying ransom for loved ones being held prisoner in concentration camps throughout Europe. Himmler has found another way to profit from the misfortunes mandated on occupied Jews.
The plan is simple. Families are contacted by the Nazis and given the option to either pay the blackmail price per relative for their freedom or never see or hear from that loved one again. The monies collected are then smuggled into neutral Argentina in hopes to be used when the Reich rises again after its upcoming defeat.
Cletus, whose father was in line to become the next President of Argentina before the Nazis assassinated him, inherited his father's enormous wealth and loyal followers; most all former national soldiers. His cover is that he is running an airline service using planes supplied by his buddy, Howard Hughes. This was a plan conceived by President Roosevelt as a personal payback to Charles Lindbergh for once saying that Goering had the best air force in the world.
In this new chapter, Cletus and his pregnant wife, Dorotea, await the birth of their first child as a high-ranking Nazi SS Officer is personally dispatched to Buenos Aries by Hitler with the orders to destroy all the planes in Cletus' fleet and kill him.
Griffin is one of the leading authors of World War II historical fiction. He is strongest when blending fictitious and famous characters into a suspenseful story that always leaves his readers wanting more.
