It is summer 1943. Two of the Allies’ most important plans are at grave risk: Operation Overlord’s invasion of France and the Manhattan Project’s race to build the atomic bomb. A furious President Roosevelt turns to OSS spy chief Wild Bill Donovan — and Donovan turns to Dick Canidy and his teams behind enemy lines. They’ve certainly got their work cut out for them. In the weeks to come, they must fight the Axis in many ways, to try to find and sabotage Germany’s new “aerial torpedo” rockets, some of which are rumored to be fitted out with deadly nerve gas and aimed at London; to rescue a missing covert OSS team bearing vital secrets; and to exploit German intelligence agents and generals disgruntled enough with Hitler to maybe try to topple him.
And as if all that weren’t enough, they must battle the enemy within, as well: The Soviets are using moles to steal Manhattan Project secrets, and if the Soviets build their own atomic bomb... who knows where that might lead?
Filled to the brim with action, character, and the deep understanding of the military heart and mind that have made Griffin’s novels outstanding, The Spymasters is simply great listening.

What would have made The Spymasters better?
more of an in depth story focusing on the actual action
What was most disappointing about W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV ’s story?
to much time was spent on interpersonal mumbo jumbo which went nowhere.
Have you listened to any of Christopher Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
no, but he did an excellent Job, with the script he had to work with. Maybe he can redo all of the "Men in Blue" series, because Michael Russotto is a DISASTER.
Any additional comments?
I am original Griffin Fan, beginning with the Lieutenants, this book although long awaited, was slow on action. Nothing at all like all the other Griffin books.

WW11 Spy Story
W.E.B. Griffin is one of my favorite historical war novelist. It seem like it has been a long wait for this latest book in the Men At War Series. Dick Canidy is back to Sicily to check on the covert OSS team he had put in place but a different "hand" was sending in the signal reports. Canidy was also assigned to check if there was more nerve gas held by the SS. Alan Dallas was busy checking out "aerial torpedo' and arrange the escape of his operatives. Lots of action, politics and history woven together as only Griffin can do. Can not wait for the next book. If you enjoy historical fiction of WW11 Griffin is one of the best authors. I am glad to see they are now publishing his older books as audiobooks.
