Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

October 1945. Germany and Japan have both surrendered, bringing the war to an end. But for Cletus Frade and his band of brave brothers at the OSS, the war is far from over. Unbeknownst to most of the world, the U.S. government, in the closing days of the war, made a deal with Germany, one that involved getting certain German officials to Argentina in exchange for valuable information concerning Soviet intelligence activities within the American military program. Empire and Honor continues on from 2011’s Victory and Honor, jumping forward about half a year but continuing the story pretty much seamlessly. The disbanding of the OSS has begun; KGB spies inside the Manhattan Project are still posing a major risk to national security; emerging global political conflict makes the chances of a postwar peace look slim. Lively and exciting, the book should please the authors’ many fans. --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

i have been a fan of WEB since his first book about the Corps. His research has been impeccable, and his sources right on. The others about the Army officers and the Philly cops are as well written. This one convinces me that the authors need to go to that new twelve-Step Group: On-and-on. All of the exhausting descriptions of politics, clothing, food, landscapes, etc got me to the point of yelling: GET ON WITH IT! Much less action than "Spymasters" (A great book, by the way) and more like "War an Peace." I realize that the authors are fascinated by all the Spanish and German descriptions but the endless repetitions of German and Spanish military ranks got in the way of the story and its continuity.
Sorry, guys but this book is far below your usual product.

I agree with several reviewers that the ending feels like several chapters are missing...I have ask Amazon to look into this, as well as the publisher...all to no avail, with standard BS (Auto Reply...too busy)...If this is an example of what Griffin writing is getting to...he will lose me as a "Big Fan". I think I read where Clive Cussler is sending Dirk Pitt to the southern tip of Argentina to follow up on a recent find of an old German Storch airplane & a German Submarine where found sunk into the ice with bodies everywhere waiting for the finish of the story...

When I started reading the "Empire and Honor", I thought to myself that Daddy must be writing again or Junior is finally catching on. It had a familiar feel of older WEB Griffin works.

Sadly, after 150-200 pages, it suddenly tanked. I guess that is where Junior took over. Characters took wild and illogical mood/personality swings. Facts from previous books started changing. Major facts. Clete's sister's name changed. She had been called "Marjorie" since the first book in the series well into this book and then her name suddenly changed to "Marjie". Facts from the incident at Samborombón Bay suddenly changed in this book. Heck, Junior even refers to Gary Cooper in "High Noon". "High Noon" was made in 1952. This book takes place in 1945. Hey Junior - at least read the other book in the series and make a minimal effort to put some continuity into your books. Maybe consult a calendar from time to time as well.
There are also developments in the book that defy all logic. Why would The President of The United States entrust a secret a state secret that is so important that it would bring down his presidency to a curmudgeon septuagenarian from the opposite political spectrum whose only connection is that he happens to be Frade's grandfather? The storyline at time was so illogical that it was plain stupid.

I keep buying the WEB Griffin books, hoping that one might be up to snuff. From here on out, I'll read the books, but I'll buy them used for 99 cents.

One other thing...
It is very strange that very poorly written books that are published by G.P. Putnam's Sons (Penguin Publishing) have the same "reviewers" show up giving 5 star ratings on all their failed books.

I've read all of Griffin's books and liked the Argentine series the best. Granted, they're all what I consider "airplane books" -- nice way to while away a few plane trips but not part of the American Canon.

Empire and Honor, though, is an embarrassment where the bar isn't high to start with and offensive to all of Griffin's longtime readers. This is the same plot from the 2009 series release, Honor of Spies. Just replace Cletus Frade with Jimmy and the books are virtually the same.

All of Griffin's efforts have gotten sillier and sillier as his son and other ghostwriters take more and more of the load -- Tom Clancy's work has followed the same trajectory but from a far, far higher starting point.

I'll buy the next one and read it -- after I find a used paperback at Half Price Books. NEVER AGAIN.

I knew the book was in trouble when I got to page seven and found that Narvik was in Denmark. Last time I was in Narvik it was still in Norway. And according to Google it still is and always has been. The book is a rehash of previous stories with lots of other mistakes. Didn't bother to finish.

Format: Hardcover
I started out as a fan of the Honor Bound series, but they've gotten progressively worse. I made it half way through this one before I gave up.

The book must contain at least 75% filler. The reader is forced to cover the same ground multiple times. Not only from previous books in the series but from previous chapters in this book.

And the characters have become progressively more shallow and two dimensional. What finally caused me to throw in the towel was Cletus' innumerable unwarranted fits of anger. I swear he's become bi-polar. Please, up his meds. He's no longer tolerable to read about.

It's long past time to fire his co-writers and take back the series or just do us all a favor and kill it off.

I have never read a book that just stops at the end. It's like the author just decided to quit writing.
I have several other books by this author and enjoyed them.
save your money,
