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:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling authors, a brand-new series about the Cold War—and a different breed of warrior.

In the first weeks after World War II, James D. Cronley, Jr., is recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. For a new war has already begun against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet Union.

The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronleys job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them any way he can. But his first assignment might be his last. Hes got only seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, and hes already managed to rile up his superior officers. If he fails now, his intelligence career could be the shortest in history.

Because there are enemies everywhere—and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them wear the same uniform he does…

 

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.
