After six exciting thrillers in seven years, bestselling author James Grippando is at last bringing back the main character from his blockbuster debut novel, The Pardon.

Criminal lawyer Jack Swyteck doesn't handle many civil cases. But this one is different. His client, Jessie Merrill, is a gorgeous ex-girlfriend who's being sued.

At the trial, Jack pulls off a brilliant victory and Jessie gets a hefty settlement. But then Jack finds out it was all a scam. Two days later, Jessie's body turns up floating in Jack's bathtub. As the evidence mounts against him, Jack finds himself on a collision course with dark secrets from the past and a possible killer is beyond suspicion.

Another solid Grippando mystery staring Jack Swyteck. Humorous and exciting. 7 of 10 for me.

An engrossing thriller with some neat twist and turns.

The downsides: (1) Theo, the sidekick who's more annoying than entertaining. (2) The quips and dry sarcastic wit that so common with American authors. It's cheesy, cliched and annoying. I'm going to harp on this fact in every review of Grippando's books. They're good but there are some limits. (3) Some silly hollywood like action...as if criminal lawyers have to endure James Bond like moments.

Despite these hangups it's a good book to read and definitely recommended for the mystery in the courtroom.
