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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "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.

    "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.

    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!

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

    A more diverse narrator performing a "tighter" script


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Grippando again?

    Probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Davis’s performances?

    Definitely not.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Interesting concept but replete with unlikable characters and poorly narrated.
