Empire and Honor: An Honor Bound Novel

W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV. Putnam, $27.95 (528p) ISBN 978-0-399-16066-0
Bestseller Griffin’s seventh Honor Bound book, co-written with son Butterworth like the previous entry, 2011’s Victory and Honor, continues the series’ tradition of bringing espionage’s shadow wars to vivid life. Though WWII is over, the pressure on OSS Lt. Col. Cletus Frade is not, due to Operation Phoenix, a long-festering Nazi contingency plan against wartime defeat that aims to establish South American bases from which to launch the Reich’s resurrection. U.S. intelligence becomes concerned that U-boats are bringing weapons-grade uranium to conspirators waiting in Argentina to carry on Hitler’s legacy. Frade launches a covert op, which Truman “could not have ordered” (to preserve plausible deniability), to prevent the makings of a nuclear weapon from reaching the wrong hands. The pages fly by as the authors mix action and intrigue with a fascinating look at Juan Perón and the Argentina of 1945. Agent: Robert Youdelman. (Jan.)
