"Badge of Honor" series # 7

Library Journal
Book 7 of Griffin's "Badge of Honor" series continues the saga of the Philadelphia Police Department, focusing once again on the Special Operations unit. Detective Matt Payne is sent to Harrisburg to gather evidence against a narcotics unit that is suspected of stealing from the very people whom they have arrested. Payne is also working with the FBI in its attempt to locate several terrorists who, in 1968, blew up a scientific laboratory, killing 11 people. While walking in the footsteps of law-enforcement officers, Griffin gives a clear picture of what it is like to be a police officer, how police officers think, how politicians bring pressure to bear on their actions, and how the justice system works. Everything Griffin writes immediately goes on the best sellers lists, mainly because he tells such richly detailed stories using a huge, engaging cast of characters who by this time will have become old friends to many readersand this book is no exception.

Typical Griffin. (One of my all time favorite authors.) You simply cannot go wrong. If you possibly can, try to read his books in series- it's like meeting old, dear, friends.

As always Griffin is a good read. He seems to have researched the book well, and the dialogue moved along smoothly.

A political assassin is read to make his move. The police depts only clue is a single, perfectly typed bomb threat. And worse yet, the police aren't sure they can trust their own people. In a few short days, the corruption of one cop--and the madness of the assassin--could blow the whole city sky high.
