Publisher's Summary

Many years ago, Jack Swyteck saved Theo Knight's life.

Theo grew up on the streets of Miami's roughest neighborhood and lost his mother to a violent crime. Although his uncle Cy tried his best to raise him right, by the time he was a teenager, Theo was on death row for a murder he didn't commit. Jack was the lawyer who proved him innocent.

Now a successful bar owner, Theo has turned things around. But he needs Jack's help again, this time more than ever.

An escaped convict from the old neighborhood shows up at Theo's back door, asking for help. In return, he'll finger the man who murdered Theo's mother. But the answers aren't so simple, and soon Theo's own life is in danger.

Jack and Theo must piece together a 20-year-old conspiracy of greed and corruption that leads to the very top of Miami's elite, while revisiting a past that Theo has tried hard to forget. But Theo also has the opportunity to seek the revenge that has fueled him since the day he found his mother dead in the street on a hot Miami night.

Last Call is a brilliant and bullet-fast thriller, complete with revelations that no listener will ever forget.

Investigate another Jack Swyteck case.

Excellent book

Excellent book, the characters were real, I agonized over Theo's pain, dreaded the possibility that Uncle Cy might have been the killer, or that Theo would die before he could find out who really killed his mother.

The music between 'cd's was annoying. Someone could have edited out the filler that is used to provide transitions for cd's.

Great

Grippando's books never let me down..they are always first class. Keeps me guessing until the very end. Excellent work by the narrator.
Also liked the music and sounds during the audio, gave an extra feel of suspense. Uncle Cy's jazz at the end of the audio was a beautiful ending.

Keep me trying to figure out the end

I liked this story. It kept me interested and wanting to listen to more. I like a story that I can't figure out immediately and this one did just that. It keeps the listener intrigued to figure out who killed Theo's mom. The narrator is excellent and easy to listen to. He has a great voice for each character and somehow makes them come alive. Awesome!

Annoying Music

Excellent Book...............but the music (?) between chapters has to be the most annoying I have ever experienced in an audiobook.

Great book

This is a typical Grippando story with great character development, twisty plot and a narrator who truly 'plays' the characters. The terrible thing about this recording is the music which is loud, discordant and totally inappropriate to the story line.

Sound production

The music was okay for the first two chapters then it didn't really match the mood of the story. It was also so loud at the beginning that you could barely hear the first few sentences. Other than that the storyline was good. I have listened to the book twice because of the story.

Love, love, loved it!

Sincerely enjoy all of James Grippando's books and, "Last Call" is no exception. Getting to know the characters and becoming enmeshed in their lives is half the fun.
Keep 'me coming JG!!

Not a good narration - ugh

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better voice. Too hard in his annunciation ... and the horrible music that comes up on occasion needs to go. The plot draaaaags on :(

Has Last Call turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but I am not sure if I would listen to this series with this narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

A voice was too dramatic at times and did not have the depth of Guidell.

What character would you cut from Last Call?

Not sure. I just could not get into this book. It just rambled on and on...

Any additional comments?

I usually like this writer. But the narrator and the plot could have improved
