This is book 8 of the "Badge of Honor" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Latest (eighth) book in his Badge of Honor series. He's gotten really weird about continuity. Suddenly, in this book, everybody has cell phones and digital cameras and computers; and acts as if they'd always had them. Even though it's stated that Matt Payne has been on the force only 5 years, putting this back in the eighties sometime.
Other than that, an okay book.
The title makes no sense, by the way. There isn't a major death penalty case involved or anything like that. In fact the action is wrapped around two different cases that don't interact at all.
