Philadelphia Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne is beginning to think nothing can shock him - until the case of a young socialite's death lands on his desk. The Camilla Rose Morgan he'd known as a teenager was beautiful and brilliant - was it possible she'd jumped to her death from her own balcony? Her brother tells of her tragic battle with a lifetime of mental demons, and there is plenty of evidence of it, but still...something just doesn't sit right. The more Payne digs, the more complications he discovers.

Reviews

Praise for Broken Trust "Another sharp examination of crime and police work in Philadelphia. . . Combine[s] great local color with cases that illustrate the special challenges faced by cops in volatile urban areas [and] shows us the politics of law enforcement in major cities, where perception can be more important than crime statistics. . . Griffin and Butterworth keep us turning pages without resorting to excessive melodrama. Straightforward urban realism mixed with characters we care about have kept their formula fresh."--Connecticut Post "[Broken Trust] has many relevant themes intertwined with an action packed plot. . . The novel offers a lot of insight into the lives and challenges of the police." --Blackfive.net Praise for Deadly Assets "A very gripping, very well-researched look at a couple of days in Philly . . . Griffin and Butterworth have a real feel for rough neighborhoods that tourists never see." --Connecticut News "Gripping . . . Payne and his cohorts face long odds in a gritty police series that provides sociological comment but no easy answers." --Publishers WeeklyPraise for Griffin and Butterworth "Griffin has the knack. With enviable skill he doles out humanizing detail for a large and colorful cast, and you care what happens to virtually all of them. Griffin is one of those writers who sets his novel before you in short, fierce, stop-for-nothing scenes. Before you know it, you've gobbled it up." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "If God is truly in the details, then Griffin must be the pope of police procedurals. What's amazing is that all these factoids don't slow down the story's considerable momentum for a minute. Nor do they keep Griffin's gritty cops from convincing us of their individuality." --Publishers Weekly "Fans of Ed McBain's 87th Precinct novels better make room on their shelves. . . . Badge of Honor is first and foremost the story of the people who solve the crimes. The characters come alive." --TheGainesville Times "Speedy plotting, lively entertainment." --Kirkus Reviews "Griffin's books sell millions. They deserve it!" --Houston Chronicle From the Hardcover edition. Praise for Broken Trust -Another sharp examination of crime and police work in Philadelphia. . .
