The New York Times best-selling author's ever-popular hero, Jack Swyteck, is on his most dangerous case yet, uncovering a sinister underground world that has him racing across the globe.
Then: Sergeant Vince Paulo held his best friend's daughter, McKenna, bleeding in his arms as she uttered the name of her murderer and ex-boyfriend, Jamal. That was minutes before a blast made everything go black for Vince - forever.
Now: Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck has been called in to save Jamal from the death penalty for terrorist activity. Despite urgent warnings from his fiancee, undercover FBI agent Andie Henning, to stay away from the case, Jack finds himself inextricably drawn to Jamal's past - even believing his alibi that he was abducted and held in a black site in Prague at the time of McKenna's death. But if Jamal is innocent, then the man who murdered McKenna and took Vince's sight is still out there... free.
Soon bodies begin to pile up and ghosts from the past reappear very much alive, confirmed by ominous threats from a faceless man known only as "the Dark." Vince and Jack must confront a mortal danger that goes beyond McKenna's death, across international waters - a journey to piece together the past that leads through the back alleys of London, onto illegal Internet sites, and straight into the mind of pure evil.

i liked how it starts out a crime novel then turns into a mystery then turns into a terrorist story with each added new element the story blended beautifuly and the twists and turns brought quit a few surprises along the way i really enjoyed it a lott.
first time i heard him he was great i enjoyed his voice he made the story come alive
the begining and ending and many other moments along the way just an amazing book its worth a listen.
Yes, Seems to be a good author to fill in the gaps when i am waiting for other books.
I enjoyed the book, it didnt have me hooked though. Narrator did a Great job!
Wow! This was a major disappointment for James Grippando - I'm glad that I used a credit on this one..I actually contemplated asking for a refund of my credit. Talk about unoriginal and boring. Did he just read the papers; cut and paste into a "book/novel"... seriously? You have lost a fan Mr. Gripppando.
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
This is a very difficult plot to follow on audiobook. Sometimes you need to go back and figure out who the characters are. Also the story is hard to conceive.
If I wanted to listen to leftist rhetoric I could watch one of Obama's speeches on television
