2nd Defective Unusable Badge Kindle Edition
on August 7, 2013
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.
