Just as with his remarkable military novels, millions of
readers have been captured by the rich characters and vivid
realism of Griffin's police dramas. "Griffin has the
knack," writes The Philadelphia Inquirer. "He sets his
novel before you in short, fierce, stop-for-nothing scenes.
Before you know it, you've gobbled it up."
Now, in Final Justice, Detective Matt Payne-newly promoted
to Sergeant and assigned to Homicide-finds himself in the
middle of three major assignments. The first, a fatal
shooting at a fast-food restaurant, seems simple, but
rapidly becomes complicated. The second begins complicated
and only gets more so, as Payne becomes involved with a
local guru who has fled the country, leaving behind the
mummified body of his girlfriend in a trunk. And, as if
that weren't enough, the self-absorbed star of a series of
improbable police movies comes into town-and it is his
presence that will complicate Payne's life most of all.
Filled with color and detail and plots as real as the
headlines, this is a riveting novel of the men and women
who put their lives on the line, from the cop on the beat
to the commissioner himself.
