Description

From the moment Miami criminal defense attorney Jack Swyteck is called upon to defend a new client, a homeless man jailed for threatening to jump off a bridge, it's obvious something is amiss. For one thing, the man called Falcon manages to come up with the $10,000 bail ...in cash. Then the body of a brutally murdered woman is found in the trunk of the abandoned car he's living in. But it isn't until a panicked Falcon takes a group of innocent people hostage, including Jack's best friend, and barricades himself and his prisoners in a motel room that Swyteck realizes how much is truly at stake. For Falcon has a bigger agenda than suicide, and Jack Swyteck must get to the root of a dark history and bitter secrets before Falcon decides he has nothing to lose by killing them all.

Review quote

"Engaging characters." -- Publishers Weekly "From the get-go, it's beaucoups suspense... It's the relentless pacing that makes this one sizzle." -- Kirkus Reviews "By far the best in the series." -- Booklist "Pardon the pun, but Grippando grips from the first page." -- Harlan Coben "Grippando builds on his resume of bestselling legal thrillers with another winner." -- Library Journal "Well written ... gripping." -- Washington Post
