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. 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 mutilated body of his girlfriend in a trunk. And, as if that weren't enough, the self-absorbed star of a series of improbable 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.… (mais)

About the only thing I liked about this novel is that it took part in my home town of Philadelphia. Otherwise there was not much to like about Final Justice, a horribly long-winded, sometimes laughably silly novel that often reads like a police procedural. The protagonist in the story is Matt Payne, a detective in the Philadelphia Police Department who is recently promoted and transferred to homicide. The plot is all over the place as it jumps from an unsolvable killing in a fast food restaurant, an extradition case of a murder fugitive from France, which I’m pretty sure is based on a real life case, and an actor trying to get a close up work on real police work for a show that he is working on. The novel would have been much better (and shorter) is Griffin stuck to a single storyline, but he appears to have been paid by the word. There was little believability in the novel and it was often times hard to take seriously. As I got toward the end, I just want the novel to mercifully be over. Skip this one.

8th in this series--as usual, you do not have had to read the preceding novels, as he more or less tells you everything that has happened so far,. That, in itself can be annoying for those of us who read serially. That said, this is the best of the series to date....everything revolves around Matt Payne and his new assignment as a Sgt detective.Payne's character has never seemed more real.. Major gaff: all of a sudden we have laptops, cellular phones and digital cameras which were not there before.but NOBODY is any older. I was enjoying the 1970s and we just added 25 years. As always, we (re)learn a lot about the inner workings of the Philadelphia PD. Mickey, the newspaper guy, also featured. Another beef: the story just ends.....again. ( )

Best of the series to date....everything culminates with the inclusion of what I consider the main character, Matt Payne. Great story, but Payne's character has never seemed more real than this book, and there are several points in the plot that are true page turning experiences. ( )

I have been enjoying the Badge of Honor series, and was looking forward to this eighth and final book in the series, but I was disappointed somewhat. The previous book ended about six months before this onein the story time frame, but what a change in the story foundation. All of a sudden we have laptops, cellular phones and digital cameras which were not there before. It's almost like Griffin forgot the time frame that these books are supposed to be set in. I was also disappointed that I did not see much of some of my favouite characters like Inspector Peter Wohl, and the crew in Special Operations. There was no Dave Pekach except peripherally. The story was all about Matt Payne and his antics as he tracks down a serial rapist turned killer. Of course he gets involved in another gun fight too. I read these books for the characters though, and I just did not see them enough this time out. Since this is the last book in this up to now enjoyable series, I really missed that. ( )
