Publisher's Summary

Defending a woman accused of murdering the man who sexually assaulted her, Miami lawyer Jack Swyteck must uncover where the truth lies between innocence, vengeance, and justice in this spellbinding tale of suspense - based on shocking true-life events - from the New York Times best-selling author of Gone Again.

According to the FBI, the most dangerous place for a woman between the ages of 20 and 30 is in a relationship with a man. Those statistics become all too personal when Jack Swyteck takes on a new client tied to his past.

It begins at the airport, where Jack is waiting to meet his old high school buddy, Keith Ingraham, a high-powered banker based in Hong Kong, coming to Miami for his young daughter's surgery. But their long-awaited reunion is abruptly derailed when the police arrest Keith's wife, Isabelle, in the terminal, accusing her of conspiring to kill the man who raped her in college. Jack quickly agrees to represent Isa but soon discovers that to see justice done, he must separate truth from lies - an undertaking that proves more complicated than the seasoned attorney expects.

Inspired by an actual case involving a victim of sexual assault sent to prison for the death of her attacker, James Grippando's twisty thriller brilliantly explores the fine line between victim and perpetrator, innocence and guilt, and cold-blooded revenge and rightful retribution.

Grippando puts the suspense in the courtroom.

What i love most about the Swyteck series is Grappando's placing the suspense in the actual courtroom. The strategies, posturing, questions and legal bantering are riveting.

This story revolves around rape. The author carefully guides us through all the troublesome legal aspects of from the victim's perspective, her family's, her husband, law enforcement, and both sides of the legal teams. It is little wonder so many rapes go unreported.

Another great thing about this and all the novels in the Swyteck series is that each edition stands on its own. I started with the newest novel and am going backwards.

Jonathan Davis is a remarkable narrator.

My highest reccomendation!

Chilling

If you start this book you will not stop listening to it. It is complex, twisty and at times tragic, but the ending is worth the effort. The narrator does an excellent job with each character.

Exciting Thriller

This was pure Grippando at his best. Emotion, substantial detail, and wonderful characterization. Twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat and going back for more. This book is part of a series but easily read alone. Terrific narrator too.

A Flawed But Enjoyable "Read"

This is one of those books which could have been great instead of just being very good. The book tells an intriguing story which carefully builds the suspense from a difficult case for Jack to an almost impossible one. What mitigates against this book are several major factual and legal errors which are glaring. I am a lawyer but I asked my wife (a non-lawyer) to read the book and she came away with the same factual and legal problems that I saw. I really do not want to give away the book but the issues relate to the pretrial disclosures, a pivotal deposition and just plain inconsistent chronologies. The mistakes made the “willing suspension of disbelief” very difficult. Having said all of that, I still recommend the book and the performance. Both are top drawer.

Never a dull moment

Every time I thought I had it figured out, something new was thrown into the story that changed my mind. Jack Swytek is always great -- and glad to see his friend Theo included in the story. For new Swytek fans, Theo may have been a bit of a puzzle. It's the best mystery I have read this year.

A Wispered Wish

Would you listen to Most Dangerous Place again? Why?

This is a great story. See Wayne's comments spot on. I purchased this due to reader Jonathan Davis. See Sandra Brown Mean Streak, excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

Author kept you glued to the story with clues that gripped you to continue.
Note I do use new 1.25 x speed to match author's intent.

What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

He is a great story teller. I buy as many of his reads as I can. He has a full range that delivers author's intent

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not moved but made me angry that prosecutors can do as they please in the name of justice! What happens to the accused with out money to fight? And yet, how can justice best be served for the dead?

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best stories in this series

True mystery

I loved this book! Fabulous, writer.


Typically? I can figure out the end before finishing. Not the case with this story.

It kept me guessing.

Just got another book by this author!

Thank you for the read!

Excellent legal thriller; outstanding narration

As one expects from author James Grippando, Most Dangerous Place he tells a great story that is relevant to current events. In doing so he builds suspense with in courtroom and out of court action. At its simplest the story is about murder in retribution for rape, but this is a very complex novel with nothing being as it seems. The truth does is not fully understood until the twist in the last paragraph of the novel. Most Dangers Place is a great addition to the Jack Swyteck legal series. The novel has a superb beginning and an even better ending, but in the middle the story slows a bit costing it a 5 star rating. Narration by Jonathan Davis is outstanding.
