The HuntersBook - 2007
Delta Force Major Charley Castillo returns in the third crackling adventure in Griffin's #1 New York Times-bestselling series. The first two novels in W. E. B. Griffin's exciting new Presidential Agent series, By Order of the President and The Hostage, immediately raced up the bestseller lists-The Hostage debuting at #1. Told in punchy prose that connects like a right hook (Chicago Tribune), they were further proof that Griffin just keeps on getting better (Booklist). The Hunters picks up right where The Hostage left off. Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars in the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal have lead Castillo and his team to an estancia in Uruguay, where, to his shock, the man they are seeking is himself murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the money chain, those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They've left just enough of a trail, though, for Castillo to pick up the scent, and, with carte blanche from the president, to follow it wherever it takes him, he ends up . . . well, not exactly where he expected . . . Brimming with rich characters, strong action, and cutting-edge drama, this is Griffin writing at the height of his powers.
