Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded, but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight. However, the danger of his next mission becomes apparent when he receives a FedEx package bearing photos of biohazard materials, which was supposed to have been destroyed during a raid on a secret Russian factory in the Congo

After reading several Lee Child novels, I deliberately returned to Griffin's Castillo and co. to see how they measured up in comparison with Jack Reacher. At first I thought 'not so well.' The president and his CIA chief and other
key government figures are presented as caricatures. Surely no US president could be so lacking in leadership skills and common sense. But this makes one particular point better than in any other book I have read,
that if government and the civil service they oversee doesn't have the best brains, then others with better brains will outsmart them, and if those others are criminals we are in trouble. This bunch of 'leaders' are no match for
the regular brilliance of Castillo's people - the outlaws(!) - even though all of them have been ordered to disappear from view. And without them, the
world is in big trouble. Will this president realize that his capabilities are insufficient to the task? I will find out as I finish the book. A great read, with laughs, and a few lessons.
