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.

Grippando puts the suspense in the courtroom.
What i love most about the Swyteck series is Grappando's placing the suspense in the actual courtroom. The strategies, posturing, questions and legal bantering are riveting.
This story revolves around rape. The author carefully guides us through all the troublesome legal aspects of from the victim's perspective, her family's, her husband, law enforcement, and both sides of the legal teams. It is little wonder so many rapes go unreported.
Another great thing about this and all the novels in the Swyteck series is that each edition stands on its own. I started with the newest novel and am going backwards.
Jonathan Davis is a remarkable narrator.
My highest reccomendation!
