    Grippando hits it out of the park again

    UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS is yet another example of a great mystery/thriller/suspense novel. I really liked this book. I think it's the fastest moving Grippando book that I have read, and I've read them all except for A KING'S RANSOM which is next up. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. Gus Wheatly is a prominent Seattle lawyer working in a prestigious law firm. When his wife (Beth) suddenly disappears at the same time as a string of murders takes place, Gus is left to wonder if his wife is another casualty, or an accomplice to the murders. James seamlessly weaves together the story from a couple different angles. One from the point of view of Gus, another from Andie, the local FBI agent in charge of the murder mystery case, and a third from the point of view of the killer. It's story telling at it's best. The tension is high throughout the book with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The end was a shocker to me. James Grippando is my new favorite author. Thanks James and keep the books coming!

    Very suspenseful and gripping

    I read this book in only four days and I've got a very busy schedule. I actually woke up at 4 in the morning to finish because I was tossing and turning at night anxiously awaiting the ending. This book has quite a few twisted plots and interesting characters, particularly Allison Leahy. It focuses on all the behind the scenes looks at dirty campaigning, kidnappings and we can also throw in a little bit of marital infedility and racial issues. This book has a bit of everything and would also make for a great movie.

    I'm an avid reader, my husband not so much. This is the second

    I'm an avid reader, my husband not so much. This is the second audio book we listened to on our trip this past weekend, now he's hooked. This was a great book and would recommend it.

    audio book

    Excellent content, and the reader was easy to follow. Wish I would have gotten the unabridged version though.

    Highly Recommended if you love "who done it"

    The book was a page-turner kept the reader guessing as to who was responsible for the abduction.

    A recent lover of reading

    I've never been a person that enjoyed reading till I purchased my Nook. It was easy to carry with me and shortly after purchasing is I was given a free book by James Grippando. I don't remember which was the free one, I just know that I've now read everything he has written. ALL of his books are amazing and keep me wanting more. I can't wait till his next book comes out in January.

    Great Book

    I've just finished reading all of his books, and each one got better and better, which was hard to believe. Each book is completely different-no rehashed themes. The Abduction has so many twists and turns, you're not sure who the kidnapper is, and I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend all of his books!

    unstoppable suspense!!!

    after reading 'Found Money' I vowed to go back and read all of James Grippando. The Abduction is even better than 'Fo und Money'. Where has James Grippando been? He belongs at the top of all best seller charts. He is one of the greats in my opinion. And I discovered his books in my local library. This one makes you wonder about politicians and the lengths they go to just to win an election. MOre from James Grippando, Please
