End of Watch

by Baxter Clare


Francis M. Franco. Shot for three bucks and change. The only witness, his ten-year old daughter.

Thirty-five years later, that daughter is LAPD Lieutenant L.A. Franco. Tired of running, Frank realizes its time to either face the past or die by its long hand. In an effort to quiet her demons she returns home, to New York’s Lower East Side. But the journey intended to rest old ghosts only resurrects them.

While visiting her mother’s grave Frank is stunned to discover a lead in her father’s long-unsolved murder. Aided by NYPD Detective Annie Silvester, Frank follows the lone clue down the unlit steps of memory to a final, unthinkable resolution.

In End of Watch, L.A. Franco at last kneels before Fate and in so doing becomes its master.


Available in both Book & eBook formats.

Reader Reviews

…And Next Shift?

I’ve enjoyed all books in the “Franco” series, the characters jump off the page so full of life and real it’s like they are people I’ve known and lived with. Baxter Clare takes the readers into all sides of police work and life and does it with such heart that there are few characters that you don’t appreciate. My hope is that “End of Watch” is not end of series, but a jumping off place for Lt Franco’s “… Next Shift…”

End of Watch

I am fairly sure that this book is one of the best works of fiction that I have ever read.
