The Assassination Option by W.E.B. Griffin


I haven't read any Griffin's for several years prior to reading Top Secret.  That book started at post WWII and the movement of Germans to Argentina and involved into the birth of the CIA from the ashes of the OSS.  This book proceeds from there.

In typical Griffin fashion we are treated to cameos by Harry Truman and J. Edgar Hoover.  The credibility that added the Brotherhood of War series was what made it enjoyable.  This series seems like it is more like name dropping.  


I gave Top Secret four stars out of nostalgia for a style I enjoy.   I found this book less interesting than the last and admittedly stretched to give the last one four stars.   Griffin's books appear to have the similarity of Toll House chocolate chip cookies that are all made from the recipe on the bag,  they can be delicious but without something new, different or thought provoking eventually they are just boring. 

The book was somewhat entertaining to read due to the characters but overall it doesn't have anything to recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
