About the Author
W. E. B. Griffinis the author of seven bestselling series: The Corps, Brotherhood of War, Badge of Honor, Men at War, Honor Bound, Presidential Agent, and now Clandestine Operations. He lives in Fairhope, Alabama, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. William E. Butterworth IVhas been a writer and editor for major newspapers and magazines for more than twenty-five years, and has worked closely with his father for several years on the editing of the Griffin books. He is the coauthor of several novels in the Badge of Honor, Men at War, Honor Bound, and Presidential Agent series. He lives in St. Petersburg, Florida."
This ninth "Badge of Honor" title, following Final Justice (2003), marks Griffin's (www.webgriffin.com) fifth collaboration with his son, with whom he previously coauthored titles in the "Honor Bound" and "Men at War" series. Here, Police Sgt. Matthew Payne partners with a Texas Ranger to hunt down a murderer preying on illegal Central Americans in Philadelphia. Refreshingly, this entry recharges the series, infusing raw energy into familiar characters and introducing dynamic new ones. Audie Award winner Scott Brick's (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) narration is superb; he is especially adept at the Hispanic accents and female voices. Highly recommended.

Dope smuggling, prostitution and murder preoccupy Sgt. Matt Payne of the Philadelphia PD in the uneven ninth Badge of Honor novel from bestseller Griffin and son Butterworth (after Final Justice). Payne, known as the Wyatt Earp of the Main Line because of his involvement in so many shootings, receives a call from an old pal, Chad Nesbitt, who tells him that a mutual friend, Skipper Olde, is somehow involved in a catastrophic fire. Matt doesn't care about Skipper, but Skipper's girlfriend, whom Matt had a crush on in high school, has been badly burned. Meanwhile, 21-year-old Juan Paulo Delgado, "El Gato," is going about his usual business of pimping, beating and beheading undocumented Mexican women. Sophomoric, jokey dialogue and intrusive author lectures will lead many readers to tire of the whole business long before the evildoer receives his just and expected reward. Author tour. (Aug.)
