The Last Witness (Badge of Honor Series #11) by W. E. B. Griffin, William E. Butterworth IV

The last person Philadelphia homicide detective Matt Payne expected to hear from again was Texas Ranger Jim Byrth, with whom he’d broken a Mexican human trafficking ring. But Byrth isn’t making a social call. He’s found a connection between the Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob.

Russian girls are being smuggled through the Caribbean to work in the U.S. as prostitutes, and some of them are dying or just disappearing. The trail leads right to Philadelphia, where teenage girls are being lured from foster homes, police sources are turning up dead, and the lone living witness—the daughter of a prominent family—has gone into hiding.

It’s up to Matt Payne and his Texas Ranger partner to find her—and hope like hell they get to her first.…

I'm a big fan of Griffin and his books. Unfortunately, since his son has become the writer, the quality of the work has dropped precipitously. The jumps between story lines in this book does not seem to have any plan. There are numerous unfinished lines that are the result of poor story telling or shameless attempts to whet the appetite for the next volume. Well they failed. I will not partake in the Badge of Honor series again. That is sad but the quality of the writing has definitely gone down the outhouse floor.

This book, hotly anticipated, was a colossal disappointment.  It was difficult to follow, and jumped around more than necessary in order to tell the story.  Each segment was choppy and not clearly related to the other threads.  While it all came together at the  end,  it wasn't a satisfactory ending. Why did these things happen? The threads did not weave together in a comprehensive way. It actually took me three days to force myself through it, and I am a Griffin fan. I am apparently no a WEB IV fan.

I have read all of Griffin,s book, some several times over the years. Until this book I was always glad to get his latest. This book has no interesting points or story worth reading. Maybe Griffin has written himself out of the business and found a ghost writter who is just putting together enough junk to fill a book. Very poor product!

Full of filler information, redundant facts. Slow moving, little action. Waste of my time to read.

I've been a fan of Griffin and his work for years. This latest book is awful and unworthy of the loyalty of his readers. Unbelievable plot, weak characters, disjointed, way too much back story for so short a work. An incredible disappointment. I'll think twice before I buy another in this series. If this is what we can expect in the future, it would be better to just lay down the pen and call it a career.

A bad book, no plot, and with virtually no character development in the WEB Griffin tradition. I doubt Griffin wrote even one word of this.

This book is very shallow. Little really happens and most of the book is filler. Written merely to add another book to the series.

Although I have, and have read and greatly enjoyed, all of W.E.B. Griffins works to date, this one seemed to be one that was written as for a deadline/contract project only. The premise is good, and timely like most of his works, yet the story sort of ran out 2/3rds of the way through. The ending was very contrived and seemed to only last as long as it did because he had a minimum number of pages to do. I have to admit, for the first time, other than the Presidental Agent series after #3 or so, I was disappointed with one of his books. I have always loved to sit down during a day off and immerse myself in one of his worlds, yet this time I was left feeling cheated and taken advantage of. I am not ready to give up on this series, or author, yet, but another one like this and I will have to think seriously about doing so. I rated it a 3 only for the first half of the book, the last half was more of a 1. This hurts my soul to be treated like this by one I admire and enoyed so much.

Read the whole book waiting for something (Plot, characters, anything)to develop, but nothing ever did. Can't believe Griffin wrote this empty book!

I have been a serious fan of Griffin's books for a couple of decades. My father and I have looked forward to the new additions in the different series. In "Badge of Honor", specifically, the later books seem to take liberties with time and characters. Carlucci was Mayor, then he wasn't, then he was. OK, it's conceivable that he could have done a "Grover Cleveland", sat out a term, and have been re-elected but the jump forward in time was too much without the characters aging any or being promoted. This isn't "Back to the Future".

I am a devout fan of W.E.B. Griffin. However, this was definitely not his best book, though we all know he can't write a bad book. I have read ALL of his books, and this is the only one that I felt was just so-so. I much prefer his books about WW II. He is absolutely a master of that era. I also much prefer his books that are not co-authored. But yes, I will continue to read everything Mr. Griffin writes. I am addicted to him.

IMO this is one of the weakest efforts put forth by to author. The plot felt under developed and hurried.

Not my favorite of his books. Seems like a lot of "filler"material was used.

I am a big fan of Griffin. I enjoyed this book. It wasn't top on my list, but it is enjoyable. The writing is tight and controlled and the plot unfolds at a good pace. High marks and high recommendations.

I feel there was way too much DETAIL,(three pages describing a boat,that had nothing to do with the Story), it's that way all through the book..That's not the way GRIFFRN writes.
