As one of those readers who has also read all of W.E.B. Griffin's military books, I was not only highly disappointed by this book, but was also highly irritated by the fact that it is nothing more than the second book of the "Honor" series with a couple of extra characters thrown in and a new cover/name. If someone is interested in reading this book and has already read "Honor Bound", I would suggest that they save their money and simply read "Honor Bound" again. I haven't bothered to compare the two books side-by-side, by I imagine that many segments would prove to be identical, word-for-word.
I also agree with another reader who commented that he was tired of the fact that all of W.E.B. Griffin's books are centered around a wealthy individual who elects to serve in the military to do his country a big favor. These "heroes", who are totally independent throughout his books, continually refuse to follow orders from his superiors, and do as they please, free from any discipline which might follow. As a 22+ year military retiree, I can assure you that it just doesn't work that way.
While I won't necessarily say that I won't read any more of W.E.B. Griffin's books, I will say that it is highly doubtful that I will waste any more money on one. There are too many other authors out there that will give you more than your money's worth.

Griffin proved himself to be a champion of military suspense with "Honor Bound" and "Blood and Honor." Brace yourselves for a roller coaster of thrills because he's done it again.
In "Secret Honor," a German general plots the assassination of Adolf Hitler. At the same time in Buenos Aires the general's son is targeted by the SS following a botched Nazi operation. OSS agent Cletus Frade knows them both and he knows the truth. But, Frade is branded a rogue agent by the OSS. All three men are in peril.
As always, Tony Award nominee Lang reads with brio. His stellar performance is the perfect showcase for this astoundingly well crafted story.

The book set in WWII Argentina, "Blood and Honor" is a great historical fiction of the WWII espionage game, coupled with an intense and dynamic story line. As good as the plot is it's the wonderfully rich and vibrant characters that make this story as great as it is. This story wraps you up in the characters, make you care about them, and takes you on a wonderful journey that ends way too soon, thankfully there are two more books in the series ("Honor Bound" and "Blood and Honor").

Cletus Frade, is a magnificent hero who has intensity, likeability, and charm. The secondary characters are richly developed and are as interesting in many cases as the hero. In fact the character of "Hans Peter (Galahad)" is even more interesting than the main hero, I wish Mr. Griffin would write a series with him as the main character.

This is a transition book in this series, and as such does not have the excitement or drive that it might other wise have, this does not make this a bad book, it's not, in fact it's very good, but just not as good as the first two, and hopefully the next in this series.

OVERALL SCORE: (A-)
PLOT: (A-), CHARATERS: (A+), DIALOGUE: (A-), SETTING: (A), ACTION/COMBAT: (C), ANTAGONISTS: (A-), ROMANCE: (A-), SEX: (Light), AGE LEVEL: (PG)

I hardly read before reading this book. I read Secret Honor when it first came out, and loved it. The plot is fast paced and constantly keeps the reader guessing until the end. When I finished, I turned the page and expected more. I am still waiting for the next book to come out in the series. After reading this book, I read all the books in Griffin's Corps Series and was equally impressed. The Honor Bound series was written so well, that I was afraid of being disappointed by the Corps Series. I was not, Griffin has an unique talent to portray accurate historical facts with characters, and plot lines that make all of his stories truly thrilling. If you like books about the military, World War II or just a plain good read any of Griffins books will not disappoint you.

Set primarily in Argentina during WWII, with some scenes in Germany, Secret Honor is filled with what could have been an interesting blend of romance and intrigue. Cletus Frade, an American OSS officer, marries Dorotea in Argentina and becomes the Patron of a vast Argentine ranch. He is an accomplished pilot, and befriends a German officer, who also manages to fall in love with an Argentine woman. Cletus is also involved in a plot to subvert the Germans in their attempt to use Argentina as a refueling/retrofitting stop for their submarines.
As a piece of historical fiction, the novel brought interesting insights into the involvement of Argentina with Germany during WWII; however, the detail of many evil German officers, their blind devotion to The Fuhrer, and the litany of what officer reported to whom, and their rank and titles, etc. was boring beyond belief. I kept waiting for something big to happen, and it never did.
I have been a fan of Griffin for many years, especially his Brotherhood and Corps series, and expected a much high caliber of character development and fluid plot progression than was evident in Secret Honor. I slogged through the book only because I kept recalling how engaging some of Griffin's earlier books had been, and thought that this one would "kick in" at any time. I won't give up on this author yet, but this was not the Griffin I had learned to savor.
