Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the eleventh book in the Badge of Honor series, Maggie McCain runs a facility for young kids and teenagers waiting for placement in the foster-care system. When she arrives at the house, she finds a woman she was waiting to see dead on the floor and the house on fire. She flees. Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne is on vacation with his fiancée, Amanda, when he learns about Maggie. Amanda and Maggie were friends, and Matt soon realizes he’s going to have to break a promise he made to Amanda if he’s going to find Maggie and keep her alive. The Mexican drug cartels and the Russian Mob have teamed up, and Maggie is the collateral damage. Griffin has his established fan base, and this will not disappoint them, though those new to series may have trouble jumping in here. --Jeff Ayers

Review

Praise for The Last Witness

“Explosive.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Great good fun.”—Kirkus

Praise for W. E. B. Griffin

“Griffin is one of those writers who sets his novel before you in short, fierce, stop-for-nothing scenes. Before you know it, you’ve gobbled it up.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

Seems like this book finished with way too many loose ends.
Lowell
This is another book in the series, I have read all of the series and await his next book.
Frederick Loomis
I have read all of W.E.B Griffin's books and this is not a Griffin book.

The Murders in this series also had graphic reproductions of material (police report forms) that are essential to understanding the story but are unreadable in the Kindle edition and barely so in the paperback. Readers should not be expected to pay 13 bucks for a defective product even if the book were otherwise worth reading.
I also note that the Editorial Reviews are unspecific to this book and appear to be excerpted from general older comments on earlier series.
Badge were among my favorite Griffins until Junior got involved. The previous 2 were so bad that coupled with this 2nd Kindle edition problem I give up on this series and will not bother again with it.
As far as the Butterworth authored books go only the Argentina Honor series still holds my interest despite numerous errors and anachronisms about characters and events that indicate WEN4 does not read the earlier books in a series before attempting to continue it. And lacks his fathers touch of wry humor and ear for dialog.
My brother still enjoys Men at War spy series (I found the last couple of those OK too) and he likes Pres. Agent though I have given up on those also and since my brother does not read Ebooks I will only buy paper as gifts for him.
I have now definitely removed this joint author from my preorder list and this Badge Series from consideration period and will not buy any book from them without reading many reviews and getting it in paperback from a bricks and mortar shop where I can see if it is worth bothering with.
Disappointing and frustrating to a longtime fan.

I've always been a Griffin fan, but this book is miserably written. For some reason, the authors decided that we would be more interested in reading how the 'bad guys' thought and lived. I didn't actually count pages of content, but the book ignores the protagonists almost completely and spends all its time in fascination with horrific criminals. Griffin has always had a tendency to be fascinated with the social life of criminals and sociopaths, but this book is horrible. The book isn't a police procedural, it's not a mystery, it's not a character drama... It's just boring. Save your money...

As an avid reader (all series, all books) of the Griffin team, I was extremely disappointed with this last effort. Either one or both of them has lost their touch. No suspense, no drama, no character development. Barely a short story, this effort was not worth reading and if I could get my money back on the Kindle version, I certainly would. Shame on you father and son for foisting this on your loyal fans and cashing in on the fat royalty. Shame on Amazon for charging through the nose for this product. I will never pre-order another Griffin novel and will never order another one until I have read the reviews.

This book is plain trash compared to all the other titles in this series. W.E.B. Griffin it appears was just trying to punch out another book. He failed miserably and should be ashamed of penning this poor excuse for a book. I pre ordered this book months ago and anticipated a great book. I was let down majorly. If I was the author I would recall every single book and offer a full refund and pay everyone that read it for wasting their time expecting a good Mat Payne book. I cry foul and leave you with this parting thought the next book by this author better be way better or I will not spend any more money and call him a washed up author. If a Corp novel or any other series came out this scrappy there should definitely be he'll to pay

Sad, sad disappointment. Jumps between story lines seem arbitrary. There are a number of story lines left hanging that are either the result of poor writing or shameless attempts to lure a reader to future issues. They don't work. The Griffin III stuff was always a delight to read. However, since IV has been involved, the quality had spiraled down, horribly I might add (note to the unaware, Butterworth is Griffin III's real last name). Thus, I'm not biting on any further issues of The Badge of Honor series. It has essentially died. I fear the same result for any attempts by IV to continue any of the series of books. Makes you appreciate what a good story teller III was.

Not the normal Griffin book. I have read them all. This one starts five different stories all in different places and doe not END any of then. Very poorly written , I think he "farmed" this book out to a first year freshman at some two yr collage.

I hate to be accused of piling on but this much anticipated book was TRASH and must be laying the groundwork for a sequel. For the 1st time since becoming a W.E.B. fan, a book couldn't end fast enough for me. There are so many pages spent on characters that go nowhere, they must be showing up in the next book. My advice is "NO NEXT BOOK"

By far, the worst W E B Griffin book I have read -- and I have read them all! Simplistic, puerile trash, and I absolutely regret spending the money on it. He has done himself and his reputation a huge disservice.
