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.
