Murders are on the rise in Philadelphia-but no one seems to mind because the victims are all fugitives with histories of heinous sex crimes against women and children. Worse for Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne, the main suspect is leaving evidence for police to find. But when copycat killings start popping up due to vigilante groups dealing out their own justice, Payne must find out who's behind the chaos before the violence overtakes the city.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 1/31/2014

    " I enjoyed this crime fiction, not only because the entire plot takes place within a square mile from my place of residence - so there was definitely that cool recognition factor - but also because it is a pretty good story, complete with the obligatory car chase in the last chapter where the bad guy gets what he deserves. I just want to add that I really really hope that the fundamental city government corruption described in this book is highly exaggerated, otherwise we are all kind of doomed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clark | 1/28/2014

    " I reluctantly agree with others. I really enjoyed the others in this series and this one, for whatever reason, did not quite measure up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 G G | 1/27/2014

    " I love the books of WEB Griffin, and I generally liked The Vigilantes, although I have to say that books co-written with his son often live up to one's expectations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ron | 1/23/2014

    " The newest in the Badge of Honor series and one of the weakest. The last volume (The Traffickers) had much more suspense and I was hoping that the series was returning to the energy of the 1st few volumes. I hope the next in the series is better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Penny | 1/21/2014

    " I've not read a W. E. B. Griffin novel in a while and I do not think I just did. Yet another author giving his (is it only men who do this?) name to a lesser writer for whatever profit. Griffin's readership does not profit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claudia | 1/19/2014

    " I finished reading this book a few months ago. Griffin has a good way of keeping the reader involved; all of his that I've read are page turners. I like these Badge of Honor novels. This one just didn't have as much mystery as the others. Still a good read, just not the best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Avelino | 12/27/2013

    " Not so good - 1st time reading a WEB Griffin novel. Story was all over the place and did not closeout a lot of the issues & conflicts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 12/16/2013

    " Now that he's co-writing with his son, the flavor of the writing is different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 12/1/2013

    " There is an up spike in murders of Philadelphia's criminal elements. No one is too concerned because of who the victims are. Sergeant Matt Payne finds that there is more than meets the eye. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 10/25/2013

    " This novel gets better after the first quarter and has plenty of action, drama, tragedy and even humor. 7 of 10 stars "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jmrathbone | 10/20/2013

    " I was looking forward to another in the Badge of Honor series, but this one wasn't up to previous standards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 9/20/2013

    " Enjoyable and easy to read, although similar plot to almost every other book in this series, and not that far from every other book this author has written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tarek Silmi | 8/22/2013

    " First I heard of the series was on Audio book. I heard all Badge of Honor Series. I loved it. I am about to start listening to rest of his series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George Smith | 5/7/2013

    " Bloody and dark; not for the faint at heart "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TJ | 3/26/2013

    " Eeehhh. Lost some of the humor. More formulaic. Not really worth it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean | 7/23/2012

    " Loved this series when it started. Tailed off a bit when brought into "present time". This last one was a stinker though. I really think his son is writing these books and he's just adding his name to them. At least that is what I hope... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Redmond | 11/22/2011

    " Great, always an interesting storyline and characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 9/11/2011

    " Very disappointing read. Too much description where it wasn't needed, story didn't take off until 2/3 of the way through. Don't think I'll be reading any more of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Graden | 9/1/2011

    " I miss the side stories, with Peter Wohl, Brew Payne, Tiny Lewis, or other members of the Phila. P.D. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremiah | 6/11/2011

    " Decent book, caught my eye at the library. I don't usually read these type but I it was hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 3/30/2011

    " Average, probably the weakest in the Badge Of Honor series. It seemed to me that the book didn't know where it was going at times....and where is Peter Wohl? I guess they just dropped his character from the earlier books. I hope the next in this series picks up the pace some. "

    " did not finish, too much detail that did not follow the story.
    You forget the story after reading page after page of nothing. "
