Still in Argentina tying up loose ends from his investigation into the UN oil-for-food scandal, Charley Castillo is startled when a young man is marched into his office at gunpoint, caught trying to sneak through the fence. It turns out he's an American officer, a lieutenant assigned to the embassy in Paraguay. A key agent for the DEA has disappeared while trying to interdict drugs and very little is being done about it, for phony diplomatic reasons. The lieutenant's heard of Castillo, knows what he's done, and wants his help in getting the agent back. More than that, he's got an innovative plan for dealing with the drug lords themselves. Intrigued, Castillo gets permission to try it, but the President has just one warning for him: Don't get caught. Charley couldn't agree more-but it might turn out to be something easier said than done.

"The Shooters" fires blanks! Ad nauseam tough-guy military talk to impress the reader how "in" Griffin is with the forces. 422 pages to tell a 70 page story. This book drags out unimaginatively with dull, meaningless efforts at character formation that just keep the reader mired in repetition. There is no action, supposedly the point of the story, till the end and only about four truncated pages lacking detail or energy. So many trees wasted for this.

731 pages of talking, flying around here & there, a dog relieving himself every so often on the nosewheel of the plane, more talking, giving each other the finger, more talking ........ and 6 pages of action. Well I will certainly keep away from other books in that series, and maybe even keep away from Griffin entirely.

Entertaining, fast-paced. Nothing original from Griffin but he knows how to write second-hand plots with gusto
