While best known for his military series such as "Brotherhood of War", "The Corps" and others this series is my personal favorite from Griffin. The action is real and the characters wonderful.

From Publishers Weekly: "If God is truly in the details, then Griffin must be the pope of police procedurals. Want to know what paragraph of the Pennsylvania Criminal Code you violate if you use a flashing blue light attached to your car to get through traffic? Or what the chances are of a patrolman or detective passing the Philadelphia Police Department's exam for promotion to sergeant? Or what happens to the badge worn on the chest of an officer killed in action, after the funeral? All of this-and much, much more-is revealed in the eighth data-heavy entry in Griffin's Badge of Honor series (The Murderers, The Investigators, etc.). What's even more 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. Matt Payne, a detective with the Philadelphia police force, has just been promoted and transferred to Homicide. The cases he gets during his first few days at the post are a rich mix of mayhem entangling all strata of Philadelphia society: an apparently simple shooting in a fast food outlet that turns out to be almost unsolvable; a savage rape and murder with some serious anti-cop political overtones; an extradition case involving a fugitive murderer from France; and, for comic relief, the supervision of a visiting movie star who wants to make his police pictures more authentic. What holds it all together is Griffin's infectious respect for and fascination with police work." Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Detective Matt Payne of the Philadelphia police department - newly promoted to sergeant and assigned to Homidice - finds himself in the middle of three major assignments. The first case, a fatal shooting at a fast-food restaurant seems simple, but rapidly becomes complicated. The second, a rape that tumbled into murder, begins complicated and only gets more so as it becomes apparent that the crime may be part of a disturbing and escalating pattern. In the third, Payne becomes involved with a local figure who long ago fled the ocuntry, leaving behind the mummified body of his girlfriend in a trunk.

Weaving in and around this already hectic schedule are the visit to Philadelphia of the self-absorbed star of a series of improbable police movies, who wants Payne to show him 'the real stuff', and the appearance in Payne's life of two very different women. Either one of them alone would be enough to set his head spinning, but together....

W E B remains one of the premier police procedural writers - and writers still alive. Mostly we guys want to liive vicariously through his charecters and wish we were them. We ain't, and we never will be, but then again, neither are his charecters THAT believable. But who cares, we like to read them anyway.

Matt Payne and Mickey O'Hara go to France! So much fun to "travel" with "friends."
