Publisher's Summary

What's it like to be Miami criminal defense attorney Jack Swyteck? Simply imagine that your father is Florida's governor, your best friend was once on death row, and your love life could fill an entire chapter in Cupid's Rules of Love and War (Idiot's Edition). Throw in an indictment for murder and a litany of lesser charges that could easily get a lawyer disbarred, and believe it or not, you're only scratching the surface.

I don't know....

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes because I love James Grippando & the Swytech series...<br/>

What was most disappointing about James Grippando’s story?

the story was a little over the top...at some points it felt left a bad soap opera.<br/>It started out really well but then it took a weird turn: I did a lot of eye-rolling<br/>

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Jonathan Davis as a narrator; he did a great job on this one as he does on everything else I've heard him read

Any additional comments?

James Grippando is my favourite author; I look forward to every book he writes (the way between books is just too long) but this is not his best. But still I'm looking forward to the next installment of the Swytech series

Disappointing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. Did not hold my attention.

What was most disappointing about James Grippando’s story?

I bought this recording without knowing any details about story. That is because I have read all of the other Swyteck books & they are great! I was initially disappointed when I realized this was going to be a rehash of the Casey Anthony case but I put that aside, confident that Grippando would add a twist that would make it worth it. Unfortunately, that did not happen. Frankly, I was bored. The story moved excruciatingly slowly, was slightly illogical and I found that at certain points in the story I forgot who the different players were - this is VERY unusual for a Grippando book.

Any additional comments?

I am still a huge Swyteck fan but I can not recommend this one.

Starts a little slowly...

...but gets interesting quickly. Jack Zwytek can find more trouble than most other characters combined, and has enough foibles to make him interesting and human. I'll be looking for the next book to come along to see what else can happen. Worth the credit.
