Jack Swyteck is back in this thriller from James Grippando. After swearing off romance, Jack has found himself caught up in an affair with the mysterious Mia Salazar. The only problem is Jack didn’t know it was an affair until Mia was kidnapped and it was revealed that she was married. This is only the beginning of what quickly turns into an intense hunt for a clever and ruthless kidnapper who is haunting South Florida. Performed with a slick and gripping voice by veteran narrator Jonathan Davis, Got the Look is a thrilling adventure full of chilling secrets and hair-raising turns.
FBI agent Andie Henning is tracking a ruthless kidnapper plaguing South Florida, one who's out to prove that all human life can be valued in dollars and cents. But he has slipped through her net at every turn. This time he's taken the wife of one of the state's richest horse breeders and is asking a ransom of $1 million. The stakes go up when Andie finds the woman...dead.
Enter Jack Swyteck. He has a new girlfriend, and life is good, until Mia Salazar goes missing. Then Jack gets a one-two punch: he discovers that his lover is married, and her rich husband gets a ransom demand that pegs Mia as the kidnapper's latest victim. Worst of all, her husband knows all about her affair with Jack, and he decides to pay the kidnapper exactly what his cheating wife is worth: nothing. Feeling deceived, Jack at first resists getting involved. But as secrets unfold about Mia's strange marriage and mysterious past, Jack is in for a twisty ride that may bring him face to face with a madman.
"If you haven't read James Grippando, start with Got the Look." (James Patterson)
If you need a thriller to pass the time but can't find anything great then this will do as a last resort. The reader is great, which helps a lot, but the authors story writing skills are very limited, premis not that great, his use a metaphors weak, and his character building is lite and without to much belieaveability. The story is fun on a very lite scale but better known writers have nothing to fear from this competitor.
