Publisher's Summary

Miami attorney Jack Swyteck lands in the heart of the contentious immigration debate when he takes on the heart-wrenching case of an undocumented immigrant who fled to America to protect her daughter and save herself, in this timely and pulse-pounding thriller that explores the stories behind the headlines from New York Times best-selling author James Grippando, winner of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction.

Julia Rodriguez and her teenage daughter, Beatriz, escaped bloodthirsty gangs, random violence, and Julia's abusive husband back in El Salvador. Arriving in Miami, mother and daughter struggled to carve their own piece of the American dream. While life in the States is hard, it is safer, until Julia rejects her boss' unwanted sexual advances. Suddenly - thanks to an "anonymous" tip to US immigration authorities - she is arrested, locked in detention with criminals, and slated for deportation. Jack's only viable legal move to save her is asylum - a long shot that’s become nearly impossible in today’s charged political climate.

When Julia and Beatriz made the perilous trek north to freedom, they thought they’d left the danger behind them. But now, even Miami isn’t safe. A ruthless enemy may have tracked them to South Florida and is biding time, patiently waiting to strike.

In a case where the stakes have never been higher, Jack Sywteck may not be able to save his client - even if he wins.

Swyteck to the rescue !

I have been a fan of James Grippando for a few years and really like both his stand alone and his Jack Swyteck series.
For anyone who hasn't listened to this series I very highly recommend it. The books are each a stand alone but I prefer listening in order since there are continuing characters and developing relationships.
Swyteck is generally a lawyer for the underdog who are also the people who just do not have the money to hire an attorney.
This book could have been taken right out of the headlines today. When a woman from El Salvatore is taken into custody by immigration police it becomes a battle against US laws, time and a murderous husband.
The publisher's summary gives more than enough information so I don't want to add anything to that other than to say this book has a surprise ending
Jonathan Davis does an outstanding job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
