A Philadelphia narcotics cop is shot dead in his home. A bar owner's wife and partner are gunned down during an attempted robbery. And in a beautiful mansion, a young woman dies of a heroin overdose. At first the crimes seem unconnected. But these four deaths are about to trigger a massive convergence of corruption, cops, and the mob that could tear the Philadelphia Police Department apart from the inside out. All the way to the top...

Dump narrator Dick Hill and bring back Michael Russotto
Narrator Hill attempts to put on a one man "old time radio" play by using incredibly annoying vocal gimmicks. The gimmicks were so distracting I was unable to get beyond the first chapter.
as much as I enjoy Griffin's "Badge of Honor" books, I had to stop listening to Murders after one chapter due to the narrator Dick Hill. Hill's narration style is so annoying I plan to return the book for a refund. I will not purchase additional books if he is the narrator.
And Buffalo George
I seem to be enjoying the Badge of Honor series, but Griffin has really produced some dragging plots here. This was a long book that could have been made shorter, but for the author's writing syle--there are many repeats and summaries along with characters reading written summaries--one described a room and it's content in very much detail. I'm not sure why? There are many characters, revolving around each other and sometimes they get lost in the reader's mind. As always, the book doesn't climax, it just ends, leaving the reader to wonder who dunnit? I should give up on this series and go on to something I enjoy, but I'l try book #7.
W.E.B. Griffin continues this outstanding series with fresh twists, credible storylines, and a great cast of characters. of his various series, this is my favorite. I never miss a book in it.
Good Griffin story and great narration. As always, character and plot development are so well done the we are very involved in the evolution and point of halt. :-)
