As I read this book, it seemed like the general theme was the fight between the OSS and the FBI, rather than about Sabateurs. A good part of the story centered on the connections between the Mafia and the FBI and the Mafia's connection to the Mediterranean which would be important in the next book about Double Agents, but a great deal of that story was background and I would have liked to have read a bit more about the actual activities of the Sicillian and Italian Americans on the docks and shipping in helping to win the war rather than the politics that occurred prior to the war. As for the German Sabateurs operating in the United States blowing up train stations, power stations and getting involved with hookers, that seemed to be just background to highlight the power struggle between the two enforcement divisions rather than to inform the reader of the serious effect it had on the general population in the US or exactly how extensive it really was.And I would have liked to have had Eric actually infiltrate the Bund and learn if they were a real threat or not rather than just beat up the FBI guy and then disappear from the story.

This novel is a story about the O S S (Office of Strategic Services (predecessor to the C I A) and one of its most important agents, U S Army Major Richard Canidy who, with various O S S associates,the FBI and members of the Mafia, travel over most of Europe and the U. S. on missions to find and kill or capture spies and saboteurs early in WWII.

Were it not for the many detrimental factors, such as, but not necessarily limited to; extended descriptions of mundane activities and events, persistent usage of first and last names and titles, confusing changes from one activity and location to another, and explicit descriptions of sexual activities between lovers of Canidy, his associates and saboteurs, This would have been an excellent read. Instead, it was just O K.

I like the "Men at War" series about the OSS a lot, so it surprises me to be giving this one a two-star review, but that is what it deserves. The plot is listless, and very hard to follow at times. The characterizations are one-dimensional and dull. If the whole series was like this one I would never have made it to Book 5.

I am not sure what happened here, but I can only hope that Book 6 restores the usual complexity and zippity-do-dah that this series usually has. RJB.

I've been reading Griffin for many years; I just realized this series was available on kindle and I am working through the series. This one is just about the best so far of the series. Yes, the writing is a bit hackneyed - it's brain candy. But the story, even as improbable as it is,moves quickly and keeps your interest. This series started several years ago under another name and was picked up with book 3 in the series. Unless you read them in order, none of it is going to make much sense, but......there is a lot of backstory exposition to try to bring the reader up to date.

As the professional writers have already spilled the beans, I'm giving nothing away to say that the two parallel plots :German spy/saboteurs at work in the U.S. and American agents setting up the invasion of Sicily by means of co-opting members of the mob is the core of this book. Griffin again falls back onto the FBI OSS rivalry and the old boy net of FDR's government. The vision of the military and intelligence services as a playground of the rich and well connected, which has some grounding in actuality, is again overplayed. Those unfamiliar with the history may be a bit confused - but WEB fans are familiar with this internal conflict by now. The problem with this novel is that it stops abruptly half way through the central events. I fear what we have here is a set up for numerous shenannigans as Patton and Monty race to Palermo in a forthcoming "Invaders" or some such novel. Ah well, if the tale had been finished, this would have been a great beach book. I'll wait until then and give it two stars for now, but reserve the right to add some more when I see the next half. Meanwhile, if you are going to buy this book, and if you are a WEB fan you probably will, try to negotiate half price.

I have been a fan of W.E.B. Griffin for many years and generally buy the hardcover rather than waiting for the paperback. This time I made a mistake. Griffin is obviously trying to pass the baton and the income from his franchise to his son. However, while Griffin is good at character and story development his son is not. In this book the German sabatours in the U.S., who should be the cream of the German intelligence operation, do stupid things so they conveniently get killed off. There are a number of instances of happenings which beg to be developed which just aren't. Particularly, the hero facilitates the escape of a number of Italians from the clutches of the Germans. This just happens with no associated story development. Needless to say I was disappointed.

The book is poor. No suspense or follow through. The stories go nowhere. The characters are the same which is enough to buy the book. The prose seems mechanical. Much more description of the contents of a room or office then the content of the subject matter. Actually boring and reads more like 2 or 3 chapters of a magazine article then a stand alone nove.Mr. Butterworth (probably the real author of this book) needs a lot more editing and help. The best thing about the book is that my copy came in large print version. If the followup which I am reading now is as bad, Mr. Griffin will have to take charge again.
