Summary

Desperate to find someone to unite the battling interests of General Douglas MacArthur, Admiral Chester Nimitz, and OSS Chief "Wild Bill" Donovan, President Franklin D. Roosevelt puts Fleming Pickering in charge of the OSS’s Pacific operations. Immediately, two urgent missions fall into his lap: to contact and rescue a band of former American servicemen and their dependents on the run from the Japanese in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia; and at the same time, to set up a weather station in the Gobi to help direct planned aerial attacks against Japan. Pickering has a free hand to use whomever he pleases, and he is soon surrounded by many of the Marines on whom he has come to rely during the war: men like Ken McCoy, Ed Banning, Jake Dillon, Ernie Zimmerman, and - much to his surprise - a certain hotshot pilot named Malcolm Pickering, his son. Together they will venture in terra very much incognita - and with luck they may even come out alive....

Strong entry to the series

First things first, this book is twice as long as some of the other books in the series, so you get more bang for your buck.
It's a very good entry to the series. The previous book flagged a little during the first half but this book kicks off really well.
It continues the previous book's move to writing in first person about non-American characters, which adds some different flavour and in this case some more emotional storytelling, as you follow the stateless Russian wife of a Marine officer.
If you've read this far into the series I can only assume you like Griffin's writing, and you'll get plenty of his excellent storytelling here.

Simply excellent

Simply another excellent book from the author. The story and the narrator are excellent and you just want to keep listening. Makes it extremely easy to spend an hour on the treadmill.

Loose Ends

I really enjoyed this installment...all 26 hours of it. Griffin weaves real characters in with our novel staff and it's almost believable. The range of characters runs from FDR to the Marine on the beach. Some of the idiots get their comuppance, but there are still a few out there doing funny deeds. Sometimes, one wonders about their contribution to the story? Some of the loose ends come together and more are hanging--makes you wonder about the next book.

McCoy does it again!!

This is one of the best books in the series. I have read or listened to this now multiple times and I never get tired of hearing how McCoy shows the big Brass how to really do a mission. The Corp is one of Griffins greatest series. McCoy and Zimmerman are the best team and can accomplish anything.

One of the best in the series!

As the story moves on a lot of "loose ends" came together. I absolutely loved the "ass chewing" that Pick got. Dick Hill did a magnificent job of delivering it.

The Corp

Wished the series had continued through the end of the war before getting into Korean conflict.

love this series of books

once again we find general pickering, and his team expected to find a way to pull off the impossible. But as we know they have a way to do that. They are not helped having the oss looking over their shoulders, trying to put their own plans forward.

In Dangers Path. No Danger

Griffins books are enjoyable and the background development builds good character profiles. However this story failed to raise me to fear that any of the main characters were ever in any real danger. Good story but anti-climatic.
