    Description

    Special agent James Cronley Jr. finds that fighting both ex-Nazis and the Soviet NKGB can lead to strange bedfellows in the dramatic new Clandestine Operations novel about the birth of the CIA and the Cold War. 

    A month ago, Cronley managed to capture two notorious Nazi war criminals, but not without leaving some dead bodies and outraged Austrian police in his wake. He's been lying low ever since, but that little vacation is about to end. Somebody - Odessa, the NKGB, the Hungarian Secret Police? - has broken the criminals out of jail, and he must track them down again.

    But there's more to it than that. Evidence has surfaced that in the war's last gasps, Heinrich Himmler had stashed away a fortune to build a secret religion, dedicated both to Himmler and to creating the Fourth Reich. That money is still out there in the hands of Odessa, and that infamous organization seems to have acquired a surprising - and troubling - ally. 

    Cronley is fast finding out that the phrase "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" can mean a lot of different things, and that it is not always clear which people he can trust and which are out to kill him.

    Thank God Scott Brick is back

    The first three books of this series were marred by the narrator. His voices were at odds with those of previous narrators in the Honor Bound series, his German pronunciation was inconsistent, and his pronunciation of SIGABA drove me crazy.

    Strangely, Brick pronounced SIGABA like Sendese in this book, not like he did in Honor Bound. I attribute this to Brick actually listening to previous books in this series, something not many narrators do.

    While this series is not as good, in my opinion, as Honor Bound, and at times gets tedious, I find that I appreciated it more on this, my third time through. The characters are not as engaging, Jimmy Cronley is no Cletus Frade. The plots are more convoluted and not as satisfying.

    Thank you, Butterfield family for not letting us forget.

    I have benefited In ways beyond calculation from The Incredible commitment of William E. Butterfield, III and IV. This novel The Enemy Of My Enemy, It’s just one more fine example of the WEB Griffin legacy. I first discovered these books in 1987. Reading them has helped me get through incredible life difficulties, because they help me establish, mold, and help me make continuous efforts to work for the bigger values of life.

    The story and the other five books of this recent series should be taught in public schools so that the 20th century cruelty that was permitted to rise and destroy might be available to keep the minority of people able to teach their children the principles they need to avoid and mitigate Some of the terrible inter-human catastrophes that occur.

    One of the worst failings of the human race is the speed at which it forgets The terrible things that permits in one form or another at all times in human history.

    In the story we learn about the arrogance and sociopathy of those who followed that despicable monster Hitler and the henchman he created who plotted and planned to carry on that disgusting culture.

    The questions the morality of the societal beliefs captured in dangerous comments such as the title of this book.

    The WEB Griffin books give all the rest of us a chance to think about and develop perspective on people and events and important times, such as the 20th century.

    My grandparents warned me with tears in their eyes in the middle of the 1950s during our family Passover celebration. They had a little basket of letters from the 1930s and 1940s. Most of the letters were written in German, Yiddish, Hebrew and occasionally in English, between extended family members in Europe and here in the United States.

    Letters from just average people who ultimately Simply lost their lives because somebody else did not like them.

    And together my grandparents looked at me and said: “Do not think that it can’t happen here! It can!”

    Thank you WEB, III for getting everything started. Thank you WEB, IV For working so hard to support your fathers incredibly meaningful legacy.

    I eagerly purchase, read and refer your books all the time.

    And thank you, too, Scott Brick, What a rich and masterful audio performance legacy of you have become!

    Get Rid of the fake accents

    This is a very good story line, but the fake Russian, German, Hungarian, etc accents are distracting and add absolutely nothing to the story line. We get an audible book to have someone read it to us, not to hear their poorly done fake accents.

    Only one narration comment

    Please, please, please...when saying time in a 24 hour format, it is called the lil oval character of the time is not an “o”! It is a “0” (zero). 0800 is “zero eight hundred hours”.

    Otherwise the story was good.

    Good Read Need Book 6 ASAP

    If you have read every WEB Griffin book as I have....This book is as expected with enough repeated parts of other books to be able to stand alone if it is the first WEB Griffen you ever read. Story started slow this time and keeps you wanting a book 6 in the series. Scott Brick does a fine job; not my favorite performer. Story is full of realism and history. Give it a listen. Hope book 6 is in the works.

    The war is over in Europe and Nazis are on trial for war crimes. A couple escape and Cronley is tasked to find them, cooperating with the Russians and the Vatican to do it..."Enemy of my Enemy." There are other familiar characters, Frada, Tiny and others, but MG Green plays a larger role for some reason. Once the listener gets past Griffin's story telling syle, it all works. Griffin/Butterworth, the author, spent 1946 in the Constabulary in Germany, so this story makes good sense for him. Too bad he did not follow on with book #6--more story exists there. Performance marred by reader reader mispronouncing some terms--twenty hundred hours forty six, for example.

    Just So-So. Frankly forgettable.

    I did not get sucked into this story like I expected I would. (I am a fan of spy stories.) This entire story, except a brief part at the end, takes place in April 1946 in Germany. The author brings a great deal of authentic background details to his stories, which are his basic contribution and are interesting to listen to. However, as far as the fictional part of his novel is concerned, this story lacks adventure and depth. For example, some horrific plot events are handled briefly, without the elaboration they deserve. There will be a build up of a relationship between two characters, some considerable intensity, then one of them will be killed. The other character of the relationship will note the death, state that he or she is sad, then move on, all in a few sentences. This left me feeling flat. Not authentic. The author has a couple of ticks that detract from one’s absorption into his story. He likes to outline. For example, in a character’s dialogue, the character will outline his points, such as, “We cannot go there for three reasons. (A) blah blah blah; (B) blah blah blah; and (C) blah blah blah.” This happens quite a few times, enough to attract the reader’s attention away from what the character is saying or, indeed, the whole story. He also outlines his chapters by number, then subchapters by number. All this outlining is fine for a history text, but not so much for a novel. For better spy stories, IMHO, try any of Alan Furst’s novels, all available from Audible.
