Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author James Grippando is back with another innovative and action-packed thriller featuring the ever-popular Jack Swyteck. Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck guards his own family secrets as closely as anyone, and while his father's two terms as Florida's governor made some family rifts public, things are finally better between the two men. Whenever Harry Swyteck asks for Jack's help, he gets it, and suddenly he needs it more than ever before.
When Harry's friend, the vice president of the United States, goes hunting for alligators in the Everglades and winds up dead, the president positions Harry to be his new VP. Harry immediately turns to Jack to be his lawyer.
The prestige that comes from the position turns dangerous, however, when Jack finds himself caught up in the heart of a complicated cover-up that spans nearly fifty years and across the globe. Before hostages can be released, an old secret must be revealed, one that could threaten the life of the president of the United States himself.

Blackmail, murder and Jack Swyteck!

Born to Run is an especially good book. Audible classifies it as a legal thriller but other then the protagonist being a lawyer, there's not a whole lot of legal going on! Lots of suspense when a hired assassin, trying to save his ex wife from the men who are trying to kill him and use her as a lure.
Meanwhile the POTUS has a personal secret that could get him ousted from office. Jack Swyteck's father is being used a pawn and people are being killed if they poke too far. One of the people poking around is Jack.
I am working my way through this series and can't say enough about it.
Jonathan Davis does an excellent job narrating.
The entire series is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Jonathan Davis/Grippando = Synergy

Great characters come from great writing. However, if the novel is in audio form the narration of a book is almost as important as its author. Nowhere is this more true than the Swyteck series narrated by Jonathan Davis.

I give the story only 3 stars for a 5 star experience. It’s because while I struggle with the believability of it’s premise, I find the main characters are so authentic I love every moment with them. Jack Swytech, his father Harry, best friend Theo and his girlfriend Andy’s interactions and responses in very mysterious and complicated situations are as believable as they are heroic.

You can read the publisher’s primer for the story. What it cannot tell you is how magnetic the characters really are.
