This makes Jonathan Davis my new favorite narrator, not because the story is so good (I give that a 3+), but because Davis slips so effortlessly in and out of the various Miami characters in this story, after he had had me in stitches with his rendition of Texas characters in "Guilt Trip." This is the first Jack Swytek story I've found entertaining all the way through. It ended up in a much different place than I expected at the beginning, so I appreciate Grippando for that. Even got me to listen through some chapters of a hostage situation, though I usually try to avoid the misery of most kidnap and/or hostage stories. The author broke up the hostage part well with background info, but it might not have kept my interest so well without Davis's skillful, yet simultaneously relaxed style of narration.

This is not a courtroom drama like those that have served the Swyteck series so well. Nevertheless it still a remarkable legal and political novel.
The publisher lays out the premise well enough, but like reviewer Shelly I was moved by the brutal political purge of thousands in Argentina in the 1970s. I was blown away by the author’s take on its history and have subsequently begun to research the subject on my own.
That said, the characters, suspense, intrigue along with Jonathan Davis’ outstanding narration make this a 5 star experience.
