W. E. B. Griffin has captured a worldwide audience with his stunning novels of men and women of outstanding courage. Brotherhood of War revealed the drama and challenge of army life... 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.
Top cops: listen to another Badge of Honor title.

From 4/12/15 on, I will only rate a book 5 stars if it so good I will listen to it again. To date, the Bino series tops that list.
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.
love and recommend this book to read allot. i was sorry for penny with her drug addiction. wonder if her matt are going to get together? love everyone in the story. even though we knew peeny was the victim in this story. i really wish i could have given it a five star instead of four for the overall of the the story.
