Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author W. E. B. Griffin comes the dramatic third novel in the Clandestine Operations series about the Cold War, the fledgling Central Intelligence Agency - and a new breed of warrior.

January 1946: Two WACs leave an officers' club in Munich, and four Soviet NKGB agents kidnap them at knifepoint in the parking lot and shove them in the back of an ambulance. That is the agents' first mistake, and their last. One of the WACs, a blond woman improbably named Claudette Colbert, works for the new Directorate of Central Intelligence, and three of the men end up dead and the fourth wounded.

The "incident," however, will send shock waves rippling up and down the line and have major repercussions not only for her, but for her boss, James Cronley, Chief DCI-Europe, and for everybody involved in their still-evolving enterprise. For, though the Germans may have been defeated, Cronley and his company are on the front lines of an entirely different kind of war now. The enemy has changed, the rules have changed - and the stakes have never been higher.

    "Low Order Dub"
    What disappointed you about Curtain of Death?

    Very sophomoric in plot and nature of characters in the story are a joke


    Has Curtain of Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necessarily as there are many good authors out there with more believable story lines.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alexander Cendese’s performances?

    Very hesitant to do so


    What character would you cut from Curtain of Death?

    Most


    Any additional comments?

    W.E.B Griffin has fallen greatly from his early days. If he is not writing or consulting on these "stories" his name should come off the title page.

    "Cookbook Spy yarn."

    Mr Griffin has to make a living. His Corps and Brotherhood series were much better and the heros weren't getting it on with every female. The book was adequate for passing as a fair bit short distraction.

    "Lots of repeated material from book 2!!!"

    Lots of repeated material from book 2!!! I expect more from W.E.B. Griffin... sure he would repeatedly use elongated descriptions, but not entire paragraphs that are reused in this book that came from book 2.

    Hope there's more to follow. Best series I've listened to in many years. Great narration as with the previous two books.

    "Boring"
    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Alexander Cendese?

    Of all: W.E. B. Griffin is the best.


    Would you be willing to try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth ? Why or why not?

    Griffin yes, Butterworth no.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Alexander Cendese?

    He has done a good job


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Curtain of Death?

    The book starts out great then has hours of Blah! Blah! Blah! nonsense.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed, just an attempt to capitalize on past success.

    "Disappointing"

    This was the least interesting book from WEB Griffin I've done And I've read virtually all of them. There was little action and too much was just a rehash of earlier books in this series. Too Bad.

    "the quality is back in the WEB Griffin books."

    I devour every book put out under the WEB Griffin name except the Badge of Honor series. I've read the first 8 or 9 of them but just don't get into them the way I do the military series. I thought the quality of the books dropped somewhat when the son (I think son) started writing them. One thing I never cared much for was how a large part of the start of a book would cover what had happened in the previous book. Well let me tell you this book has all the quality of WEB Griffin's early books and none of the problems. I enjoyed every second of this book and hope whoever is writing them now gets away from the Badge of Honor series and back to any of the military series. I can't wait for the next book. I rate this book excellent.

    This was a good one! I've followed this series and others by the author(s), and if they stay at this quality, I'll never move on.
