Just as with his remarkable military novels, millions of readers have been captured by the rich characters and vivid realism of W. E. B. 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 of the Philadelphia police department&;newly promoted to sergeant and assigned to Homicide&;finds himself in the middle of three major assignments. The first case, a fatal shooting at a fast-food restaurant, seems simple, but rapidly becomes complicated. The second, a rape that tumbled into murder, begins complicated and only gets more so, as it becomes apparent that the crime may be part of a disturbing, and escalating, pattern. The third is the most bizarre, as Payne becomes involved with a local figure who long ago fled the country, leaving behind the mummified body of his girlfriend in a trunk. Ever since, the murderer has been sending taunting postcards from his safe haven&;but all that may be about to change.
     Weaving in and around this already hectic schedule are the visit to Philadelphia of the self-absorbed star of a series of improbable police movies, who wants Payne to show him &;the real stuff,&; and the appearance in Payne&;s life of two very different women. Either one of them alone would be enough to set his head spinning, but together . . . this might be the most complicating thing 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. It&;s a story of fears, dangers, courage, loyalty, and genuine heroism: storytelling at its best.
