When Grey Colson, recent widower and retired Major from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, makes a life-altering decision to move from his Georgia home to a condo in Florida, he finds it’s not exactly the relaxing escape he had planned on.
In town for less than a month, Colson suffers through harassment from the local police while intervening in the investigation of a young girl’s assault and the many unanswered questions it exposes. Soon, he is recruited by a friend, another retired cop turned private investigator, and Colson discovers everything has been one big setup…
…and all these seemingly unrelated incidents are connected to one man.
Beneath every shady business is an even darker side that will go to great lengths to remain hidden—especially true in the dangerous world of human trafficking. With the arrival of Grey Colson, the delicate balance of power that had existed between murderous criminals and the county sheriff’s organized crime unit has been thrown into disarray—and no one is happy about it.
Grey Colson, a former Georgia cop with a smart mouth, an arrogant attitude, and very little patience is one highly unpredictable character. When the only thing he has left to lose, his daughter, becomes a pawn in this violent war, Colson throws his precious code of conduct out the window.
And that’s when things get really interesting.
“C.A. Griffith is a sensational new talent, and we are thrilled to bring Code of Misconduct to readers,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Equal parts Don Winslow, George Pelecanos, Andrew Vachss, and David Morrell—Griffith is a new suspense writer with much to offer—and a franchise character in Grey Colson.”
Major C.A. Griffith is currently an active duty law enforcement agent with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office in Marietta, Georgia, where he has served with distinction for nearly three decades. His assignments have included undercover narcotics, DEA task forces, fugitive and fraud investigations, and internal affairs.
