Book 3, Badge of Honor

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 04, 1991 – The ``victim'' of the title is a drug dealer named Tony DeZego, but this book's real victim is the reader, who is dragged through a flimsy plot that's overwhelmed by tedious, irrelevant details about the Philadelphia police department's uniforms, organization, chain of command and internal politics. The story revolves around two shooting incidents. In the first, an heiress is wounded and ``mafioso scumbag'' DeZego killed by a professional assassin. (The reasons for this unlikely pairing never become clear.) Later, a young police officer is found dead in a gutter. These two brief bursts of action notwithstanding, Griffin cannot be lured away from his fascination with the intricacies of policedom to bother solving the crimes. A paragraph tacked on at the end indicates that DeZego's assassin was killed when he bungled a job; the mystery of the murdered police officer quietly peters out. This third volume in Griffin's Badge of Honor series is the first to appear under his own name; Men in Blue and Special Operations were published under the pseudonym John Kevin Dugan.

The Victim

Tight. Well written. The kindle edition could use better copy editing.
