In Griffin’s latest Presidential Agent novel, President Clendennen is having major problems fighting his much-ballyhooed wars on drugs and piracy. Casting about for a sure-fire way to score some big points in the press, Clendennen comes up with a plan that startles everyone around him. He wants to bring back agent Charley Castillo, long on the outs with the president, return him to active duty, and task him with bringing down the Mexican drug cartels and, at the same time, having a go at those pesky Somali pirates. So far it all sounds like pretty standard thriller fare, but throw this into the mix: there is a very real chance that President Clendennen is mentally unbalanced. This has been hinted at in previous novels in the series, but this time it’s a major plot thread. Has the president lost his mind? And, if so, how will his insanity affect the future of the country? The action is solid, and Charley is always an interesting guy to hang around with, but it’s that other story line, the one involving the president’s mental stability, that really captures our interest. --David Pitt

“The action is solid, and Charley is always an interesting guy to hang around with, but it’s [the storyline] that really captures our interest.”—Booklist
Praise for the Presidential Agent series
“Tough-fisted…hard-edged…Griffin’s formula is straightforward: set up a bunch of obstacles, and let us watch Charlie knock ‘em down one at a time. His novels promise action, suspense, and rousing entertainment, and they never fail to deliver.”—Booklist
“Punchy prose that connects like a right hook. Griffin should offer Castillo’s services to Washington!”—Chicago Tribune
The story style is different from the normal Griffin novel. The author said he was trying to write in more of a MASH 4077 style as a different approach. It doesn't work. Read morePublished 3 days ago by William D. Mccormick
I want a refund. I bought this believing it to be another title in the series. Instead, it is some type of poorly written junk that appears to be an attempt at political satire. Read morePublished 7 days ago by RetiredPD
This will be the last W.E.B. Griffin book I buy due to the complete lack of quality in the writing and story line in Hazardous Duty. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Jim
Always a good writer but this novel had mostly fluff and little substance. No suspense or surprise ending, just good characters.Published 8 days ago by William Wisnewski
This series is getting too predictable. I really enjoy Mr. Butterworth's tales, especially the marine Corp series, but this one is getting a bit tiring.Published 12 days ago by Ed
