Join Military Book Club for a great deal on THE HOSTAGE
When it comes to military fiction, W.E.B. Griffin is what The Military Book Club is all about. Griffin is legendary for nail-biting suspense, heart-pounding action and obsessive attention to military detail. A combat veteran himself, Griffin infuses every page with his burning respect for the American fighting man. (“Nothing honors me more than a serviceman, veteran or cop telling me he enjoys reading my books,” Griffin once said.) A writer like this comes along once in a generation—if that often.
The Hostage, the second volume of his new series, continues where By Order of the President left off. An American diplomat’s wife is kidnapped in Argentina, and her husband murdered before her eyes. Her children will be next, she is warned, if she doesn’t tell them where her brother is—a man, as it turns out, who may know quite a bit about the burgeoning UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal. There’s a lot of money involved, and a lot of people who want it—and who will shed as much blood as it takes to get it.
The President puts U.S. Army Special Forces Major Charley Castillo on the case, confident that Castillo’s brains, skills and never-say-die determination will get the job done—discreetly, efficiently and, if need be, ruthlessly. But Castillo has never been up against forces quite like this…..
Brimming with rich characters and cutting-edge drama, this is Griffin writing at the height of his powers. Don’t miss it! Fiction. 480 pages.
