Publisher Comments:

The dramatic new novel in the Philadelphia police saga by #1 New York Times–bestselling author W. E. B. Griffin.

In Philadelphia—suffering among the countrys highest murder rates—the tension between the Philadelphia Police Department and its Citizens Oversight Committee has long been reaching a boiling point. That turmoil turns from bad to worse shortly after the committee begins targeting police shootings—especially those of twenty-seven-year-old Homicide Sergeant Matt Payne, the “Wyatt Earp of the Main Line”—and then the committees combative leader is found shot dead point-blank on the front porch of his run-down Philly row house.

As chanting protesters fill the streets, the city threatens to erupt. Payne, among many others accused of being complicit in the leaders death, becomes quietly furious. He suspects theres something deeper behind it all, but what? Ordered to stay out of the line of fire, he struggles ahead to do what he does best—his job. Hes been investigating the murder of a young family. A reporter, working on an illicit drug series for Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Mickey OHara, has been killed with his wife and child, a note stapled to his chest warning that the drug stories are to stop. Period. While Payne knows that he, like his pal OHara, cannot back down, he also knows that they damn sure could be among the next to die. . . .

Synopsis:

W.E.B. Griffin always hits the target-right at the top of the bestseller lists...

W.E.B. Griffin's explosive Presidential Agent novels have gained worldwide acclaim for "leaving satisfied thriller readers hankering for more."

Now, in Griffin's latest #1 New York Times bestseller, the Russian bear is stirring after many years of hibernation-and it is hungry.

Synopsis:

The #1 New York Times-bestselling series returns-and the stakes have never been higher.

Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded-but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

But the first opportunity, when it comes, is shocking: A FedEx package arrives, bearing photos of barrels containing some of the most dangerous biohazard materials on earth, all of which were supposed to have been destroyed during a raid on a secret Russian factory in the Congo. Who has them, and what do they want? Castillo has a feeling he's not going to like the answers.
