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 haven't read this book yet, but agree with the general comments about books written or co-written by the son, William Butterworth. I have read a few of the co-authored novels and all were disappointing. Note that I am a Griffin fan and have purchased about 20 if his novels.

Huge Disappointment. After enjoying almost everything written by W.E.B. Griffin, this one written by his son according to the copyright page with Library of Congress information, was fairly terrible. I could almost hear the monotone in each descriptive phrase that went, "adverb-adjective-noun" over and over... such as "really annoying description". Also, for some reason this author needed to provided a detailed description of every new character's skin color, which seemed very strange. Why would the reader even want to have an expert evaluation of everyone's exact skin tone?... - really odd. The story built up, and then it was over suddenly without the usual quality rendering of the execution of a mission or a dramatic action sequence that one normally receives from a Griffin novel. It was just... pffft and it was over... -disappointing in the extreme. If you've developed an appreciation for the original novels by W.E.B. Griffin, this will be one that you could miss.
