When an old school friend's wife is accused of murdering the man who had assaulted her, Jack Swyteck finds the case unexpectedly complicated, in a thriller based on true events. By the New York Times best-selling author of Gone Again. 40,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

Defending a woman accused of murdering the man who sexually assaulted her, Miami lawyer Jack Swyteck must uncover where the truth lies between innocence, vengeance, and justice in this spellbinding tale of suspense—based on shocking true-life events—from the New York Times bestselling author of Gone Again.

According to the FBI, the most dangerous place for a woman between the ages of twenty and thirty 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.

Not the best book by this author. The "victim" was not forthcoming throughout and it just drew the plot out to the point it was getting tiresome. Not recommended.

The author uses the victim's reluctance to be honest as a mechanism for drawing out the story and tossing in a few red herrings. The result was that the woman who was the 'victim' was so irritating and unlikable it detracted from my enjoyment of the storyline. Disappointing, as I normally enjoy this author's storytelling very much.

I found it very slow and boring. Forced myself to finish it. Not an enjoyable read for me.
