Publisher's Summary

The robbery ended in murder, the killers claimed to be terrorists, and the only cooperative witness feared for his life. Police Officer Matt Payne knew the dangers of his profession - but never thought that he himself would be the one who needed protection....

In Badge of Honor, W.E.B. Griffin reveals the explosive world of law enforcement with the same power and authenticity that made his Brotherhood of War and the Corps series nationwide best-sellers. 

Top cops: listen to another Badge of Honor title.

Meh

There are a few discrepancies in the story, as far as background stories. Not happy with the performance of Russotto. His mispronunciation of easy words and phrases, along with his accents in other W. E. B. Griffin novels borders on offensive. I’ve always enjoyed Griffin’s novels.

Great story, with too much detail.

I've listen to all the books in the series to this point. I really like the story, but Griffin seems to have diarrhea of the pen! If I didn't like the stories so much I don't think I could bring myself to listen to another book! But I will struggle through because these are great stories!

Really?

I can't remember the last time that I so thoroughly disagreed with the ratings of other Audible listeners.

With so many wonderful books to listen to, I would not waaste our time with this one.
