A good, readable book, but definitely not anywhere close to the standards of this series set by big W.E.B. Little W.E.B. obviously is doing the writing now, penning this one as a somewhat intriguing, but rushed story with thinly developed characters. Matt Payne, the main protagonist, just seems to be more of a background character here. Also, parts of the book dedicated to rehashing past stories could have been used to better develop THIS story. Not sure how much longer the Badge Of Honor series can carry on like this.
