In this exciting new series, W.E.B. Griffin reveals a city police force with all the authentic detail and drama that made The Corps and Brotherhood of the War phenomenal best sellers. Here is an explosive novel of the men and women behind the badge.

Facing a desperate public, a hostile press, and reluctant witnesses, the Philadelphia Police Department must try and stop a new reign of violence - a terrifying spree of kidnapping and assault that has plunged the city into fear.

    "Entertaining"

    This series was suggested to me by a cop friend. They are pretty entertaining and the characters are likable. You really don't even have to be a huge fan of cop dramas to enjoy them but it helps. They are based in the 70s so they can be dated at times but that's kind of the charm of them as well.

    "Multiple Reads!!"

    I never tire of going back to this series for a reread! The characters are great and I love the setting in the early books, 1970's Philadelphia. Growing up in the 70's, I like the setting because it reminds me how things were, especially never being able to get in touch with someone. Life before cell phones. There is a grittiness in the books that comes with the time and Griffin captures the feeling of big city 1970's turmoil. Michael Russotto is also one of my favorite narrators. Some of the characters have similar dialects by Russotto, but his voice is great for the setting and characters.

    If you like Griffin's other books, you love this series.

    "Good story, but chock o block with anachronisms"

    Getting lazy in research just kills a novel like this. Author needs to write 1973 on his palm...

    "Awful!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who likes repetition, overstatement and wordiness.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Russotto?

    Just about anyone.


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

    Disappointed as all get out.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe the the author is better to read than to listen to.
