Although heavily reliant on exposition, the book provides sufficient back story and works as a stand-alone read. Nothing beats a cinder-block–sized adventure novel on a winter weekend.

Synopsis

October 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 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.

The pages fly by as the authors mix action and intrigue with a fascinating look at Juan Perón and the Argentina of 1945.

...weave the large cast of characters skillfully throughout the novel. EMPIRE AND HONOR contains more personal anecdotes that link characters through their past histories than the previous books in the Honor Bound series, as well as more sexual intimacies --- the prose is slightly racy but not pornographic.
