Murders are on the rise in Philadelphia-but no one seems to mind because the victims are all fugitives with histories of heinous sex crimes against women and children. Worse for Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne, the main suspect is leaving evidence for police to find. But when copycat killings start popping up due to vigilante groups dealing out their own justice, Payne must find out who's behind the chaos before the violence overtakes the city.

About the Author

W. E. B. Griffin is 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 IV has 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.


Legendary Philadelphia Homicide sergeant Matt Payne returns in this tenth "Badge of Honor" title, following The Traffickers (2009). Unfortunately, this effort pales in comparison to nearly every book that Griffin ( and his son, Butterworth, have previously cowritten. The rich character development for which Griffin is known is here replaced with trite phrases and inner monologs on the problems of society and love. What could have been an outstanding police procedural by a great writer simply seems phoned in. Even Audie Award winner Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09), despite his best efforts and mastery of accents, can't salvage this novel. Recommended only for die-hard fans, who will be left hoping for a return to the usual excellence they've come to expect.
