By Order of the President, the first novel in Griffin’s crackling new Presidential Agent series, won immediate acclaim from critics and fans alike. “True virtuosity,” praised the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Cutting-edge,” agreed Publishers Weekly. “The end leaves readers standing on the tarmac waiting for Castillo and his newly minted band of can-do compatriots to touch down and carry them away again on a new adventure.”
Charley Castillo works with the Department of Homeland Security, but more and more is the man to whom the President turns when he needs an investigation done discreetly. And no situation demands discretion more than the one before them now.
An American diplomat’s wife is kidnapped in Argentina, and her husband murdered before her eyes. Her children will be next, she is told, if she doesn’t tell them where her brother is—a brother, as it turns out, who may know quite a bit about the burgeoning UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal. There is an awful lot of money flying around, and an awful lot of hands are reaching up to grab it—and some of those hands don’t mind shedding as much blood as it takes.
Before the investigation is over...it might even be Castillo’s blood.

Author Griffin and narrator Dick Hill open with an engaging riff on coffee and American attitudes. The compelling story takes over, with a tense account of the kidnapping of an American diplomat's wife and an international affair involving murder, Homeland Security, and the U.S. President. Hill's insightful reading of the second book in Griffin's new Presidential Agent series keeps listeners absorbed in a high-action drama full of intriguing characters. His skill at reading smoothly is easy to take for granted, but--make no mistake--his interpretation is as solid as Griffin's plotting and graphic real-life details. Listeners will be engrossed by this fascinating but troubling look at international politics and skullduggery. L.C. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
