- More About Empire and Honor by W. E. B. Griffin; IV William E. ButterworthOverviewOctober 1945. The war is over. The OSS has been disbanded. But for Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, the fight goes on...
In the closing months of the war, the U.S. made a secret deal with Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligence's Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence on the Soviets and their spies within the U.S. atomic bomb program, Gehlen's people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.
Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break loose--and the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. It is up to Frade and company to keep them safe.

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.)
