Betty Schneider, a sultry, straight-shooting ex-Philadelphia cop turned Secret Service agent with whom he has a deep infatuation, offers help. Before assassins nearly murder Betty, the well-toned pair has only one night between the soft Four Seasons sheets, pushing Charley into high gear and a lot of transatlantic travel till they reach a climax in neighboring Uruguay. Griffin is well on his way to becoming a legitimate American James Bond franchise, thanks to his prolific, multi-million-copy sales. It’s sleek as hell, but the Marine series’ enormous heart is missing, which is a shame.
Griffin mostly depicts the human side of the conflict by having the reader follow the lives of the major individuals as they go about their different missions. The book is quick and simple to read, making it a pleasurable experience for the reader.
Castillo and his crew of strong and cunning professionals are exactly the type of credible characters we need in these situations. And if it takes a novelist like Griffin, who has refined his talents and weaponry over the course of five prior series, to bring them to life, at the very least their real-world counterparts will have some fictional role models to follow.
No one captures the drama of war as brilliantly as bestselling author W.E.B. Griffin. The Corps is his multi-volume portrait of the Marine Corps, the brave men and women who fought, loved and died in the sweeping turmoil of WW II.
