Good, but clearly written and edited in haste

I love the books of WEB Griffin, and re-read all of them at least every couple of years. I am somewhat less enamoured of the ones being written by/with his son.

I love the books of WEB Griffin, and re-read all of them at least every couple of years. I am somewhat less enamoured of the ones being written by/with his son.

The Traffickers was a good read, but shows many signs of having been written in haste and edited carelessly. Typos. Missing words. Major example (this is a paraphrase): There were four women in the room. Three of them were fifteen or under. The third was eighteen. That was written in haste and apparently edited not at all.

I love the Badge of Honor series, but it has had continuity problems since the beginning.

That being said, I hope there is at least one more book in this series, in which Matt Payne's grandmother Moffett gets put in her place once and for all.

What could have been an interesting continuation of his badge of honor series is instead an erratic and awkward storyline. The author insists on recounting previous incidents and information from prior novels; many of which have no real bearing on this story. A glaring flaw in the plot regarding the near decapitation of one of the characters is never explained; indeed scrutiny of the timeline reveals that it never could have happened. One has to assume the author threw it in for shock value and then forgot about it. The conclusion felt rushed and was not of the same quality as Griffin's previous works; all in all, it left a lot to be desired.

    A real disappointment

    Having read the complete series, I expected better. Frankly, I think too much time is spent with descriptions and too little with the characters and story. The book could have been trimmed of one third of its verbiage and been a better read. As it is, I found myself skimming through the book just to get at the "good" parts. I will wait for any future books to come out in paperback before I consider buying another one by this author.

    Totally Disappointing

    Slowly WEB Griffin is handing over his writing to his son. This has been the case with at least 2 of the last 3 books. Sadly, his son is not up to the task. Frankly I am getting a little tired of all these excellent writers handing their work over to others and still sticking their name on the cover (Clive Cussler, James Patterson, and now Griffin among others). Anyways, back to this book. I should have none better before I spent that much money on it, I have been greatly disappointed with each of the books "co-written" with his son. It is almost as if his son is trying too hard to duplicate Griffin's writing style, and what he comes up with lacks originality, is often disjointed, in many cases simply boring. As much as I love the series written by Griffin, I would much rather see him wrap them up and simply retire then try to pass them off to a sub-par writer like his son. Who knows though, Griffin wrote dozens of books before he hit it big with the Brotherhood of War series and others, maybe his son will eventually get there too. In the meantime, wait for this one to hit the bargain bin, it is not worth any more then that.
