Publisher's Summary

Just as with his remarkable military novels, millions of readers and listeners have been captured by the rich characters and vivid realism of Griffin's police dramas.

Now, in Final Justice, Detective Matt Payne - newly promoted to Sergeant and assigned to Homicide - finds himself in the middle of three major assignments. The first, a fatal shooting at a fast-food restaurant, seems simple, but rapidly becomes complicated. The second begins complicated and only gets more so, as Payne becomes involved with a local guru who has fled the country, leaving behind the mutilated body of his girlfriend in a trunk. And as if that weren't enough, the self-absorbed star of a series of improbable movies comes to town - and it is his presence that will complicate Payne's life most of all.

Filled with color and detail and plots as real as the headlines, this is a riveting novel of the men and women who put their lives on the line, from the cop on the beat to the commissioner himself.

    "Final Justice - final ending"

    I was enjoying the book and its progression and then it just ended. The announcer thanked me for listening. I know your supposed to "leave em wanting more" but this is ridiculous

    "Stilted, wooden, couldn't finish..."

    I found it impossible to complete this book. Not only was the writing unconvincing, the characters were not believable. The narrator either shared the same opinion, and couldn't breathe life into this novel, or he simply wasn't the right match. I was disappointed; as a weekly purchaser of Audible books, this has been my most unsatisfactory purchase.

    "Terrible cursing and ends poorly."

    There was no need for every other word to be a curse word. The story was poor but made less interesting by the horrific cursing . Would never recommend .

    Story
    ". I wish I never bought it."
    What would have made Final Justice better?

    It would have been better if I wasn't constantly thrown out of the story by arbitrary racism and sexism and if it wasn't a stupid victim blaming rape fantasy. if it didn't continually condone drunk driving by law enforcement it would have been better. The story is as predictable as a tv show from the 90's. Or a movie from the 1950's.


    Would you ever listen to anything by W. E. B. Griffin again?

    No, it was a tremendous waste of time and money. I want to return it. I would never read another book by w.e.b and I will pretend I never read this one. I wanted a mystery and I feel like I was I tricked into buying hateful propaganda from some old American cult. He had to decide to write all the hyper sexist-racist exploitative details he included and I can only assume this is Indicative of his formula for writing all of his books.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    A fine actor doing a fine job.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A total disappointment that I wasted my time and my money. No sparks, it was like taking a rotting sandwich out of the trash and trying to eat it. It is sad that it was written and that it was published.
