The Presidential Agent adventures return in the most harrowing novel yet in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series.

M exican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President is fed up and has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea—to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and put them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding. There are also whispers that the President himself is unstable—the word “nutcake” has been mentioned.

How will it all play out? No one knows for sure, but for Castillo and company, only one thing is definite: It will be hazardous duty.


Praise for HAZARDOUS DUTY
 
“The action is solid, and Charley is always an interesting guy to hang around with, but it’s [the storyline] that really captures our interest.”—Booklist
 
Praise for the Presidential Agent series

 “Tough-fisted…hard-edged…Griffin’s formula is straightforward: set up a bunch of obstacles, and let us watch Charlie knock ‘em down one at a time. His novels promise action, suspense, and rousing entertainment, and they never fail to deliver.”—Booklist
 
“Punchy prose that connects like a right hook. Griffin should offer Castillo’s services to Washington!”—Chicago Tribune
