"The Presidential Agent adventures return in the most harrowing novel yet in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series. Mexican 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"--… (més)

Hilarious!
It is well established that Mr. Griffin does not think especially highly about bureaucrats and bureaucracy. One has only to read one or two of his books to discern this fact. And, underlying all of his works is sardonic humor in the way he addresses rank.
That said, in this work, Griffin and Butterworth pull out all of the stops. Nevertheless, the quality of the writing remains high. But it is the plot that keeps evolving almost as if he asks himself each day what craziness can we put into the book today. ( )

What an awful book, even by the low standards of the genre. Snark-filled "As You Know, Mr. President..." exposition about whatever seemed to enter the author's mind, characters that are hard to differentiate from their dialog (they're all unremittingly snarky -- they've nicknamed Svetlana "Sweaty", HAHAHAHAHA). Save yourself some disappointment and read a cereal box instead.

But then, maybe it got better in the second half. I could only get so far, you know. ( )

As an avid [W.E.B. Griffin] fan I was slightly disappointed by [Hazardous Duty]. The whole story seemed like a long bachelor party and lacked any of the normal substance. Yes, the characters were there but even the "old friends" seemed to be shallow. Does not mean I will stop reading every book [Griffin] puts out just this one seemed a weak link. ( )

I usually really enjoy reading a WEB Griffin novel. Unfortunately, this latest in his Presidential Agent Series wasn't a good read. The 'Afterword' tries to explain his intent for the novel. What would happen, if the President became "Mentally Unbalanced" and what or how complicated it would be to remove him from office. The story was long in the tooth which has become usual for his writing with a lot of filler. We get a lot of information about the major characters as it relates to previous books in the series. What he should do is provide a reference book for each of his series, describing each character up to that point. HIs first series 'Brotherhood of War' & 'The Corps' were excellent reads and I have read both three times. I'm hard pressed to recommend this particular book as a read. ( )

Stand along Hazardous Duty is not much of a story. But as a chance to get together with old friends and shoot the shit it wasn't a complete waste of time remembering the good ol' days. ( )
