The Corps explored the proud tradition of the Marines.... Now Badge of Honor takes you behind the scenes of today's urban police force.
A brutal Mafia slaying rocks the city of Philadelphia when the only living witness is revealed - a wealthy debutante involved with the targeted mobster. One of the suspects is a cop, Matt Payne, who unwittingly takes on the ultimate battle between organized crime, upper-class power... and his own police force.

A few must reads: Mr. Mercedes, Narrows Gate, Cop Town, Bomb Proof, Wayfaring Stranger, The Son (Nesbo), Dept Q series...
I enjoyed all the characters, their contrast in wealth and education and the pride they took in their jobs. I also found the lack of cynicism refreshing for a police drama. And the humor, particularly the mayor's was unique and edgy.
What I find lacking is the lack of detail in the police work itself. Nevertheless I flew the story and was only disappointed it ended with a whimper.
