    solid legal thriller

    Jessie Merrill asks her former lover Jack Swyteck to represent her in court as the Viatical Solutions is suing her for the 1.5 million they gave her. Jessie insists she sold her life insurance to Viatical Solutions in exchange for the cash when Dr. Marsh stated she probably has Lou Gehrig¿s disease. After conferring with his wife Cindy, Jack takes Jessie on as a client. <P>Jack easily wins the case, but has second thoughts when he observes Jessie and Marsh holding hands. When someone murders Jessie in his bathroom, the police make Jack and his pal Theo Knight the prime suspects in a lover scam that turned ugly and became a ¿murder for hire¿. Jack digs deep to prove he did not commit a homicide and that he was an innocent dupe in Jessie¿s con. However, to his shock and chagrin, the evidence piles up starting to confirm he had to be part of the original scam. <P>The first three-quarters of BEYOND SUSPICION is the legal thriller of the year. However, the climax, though a reasonable twist, seems a bit to simplified. This leads to readers feeling partially satiated, but also pondering what could have been if the murder was never solved and Jack remained an unproved but prime suspect. James Grippando cleverly builds up the case against Jack, but releases the air from the balloon just as the plot clears the stratosphere. Still, sub-genre fans will want to read this solid novel. <P>Harriet Klausner

    You won't know until the end of the book

    This is the second book I have read written by James Grippando. I started the Jack Swyteck series by reading The Pardon and now I will continue through the series until I have read them all. Grippando keeps you in suspense the entire book, and you won't know who "did it" until you get to the end of the book. I had a difficult time putting the book down. If you like James Patterson or Richard North Patterson, you will also like the style of Grippando. Great Read!!

    Fast read

    I enjoyed the story. It is fast paced. The only problem is that it could use better proofreading. I plan on reading the next in the series. Jo

    as the author's name suggests, "gripping"

    The second in the Swyteck series I've read, and the third novel by James Grippando I've read. All three were quite well written and kept my interest from start to finish.

    ONE HELL OF A BOOK!!!!!!!!!

    There is only one way to describe this book, WOW. No one writes a thriller like Grippando and this is one of his best. If you have read any of the Jack Swyteck books this is the best! You just can't stop reading or thinking about what is happening in the book. I found myself drifting and trying to imagine what was going to happen next. Great Book Grippando!

    A book you do not want to put down

    As with all of James Grippando's books it kept me on edge wondering what was going to happen next. What is really great is that you suspect so many people but you never know until the end who is the 'guilty' party. I could not put it down.

    A fascinating read!

    BEYOND SUSPICION is not your ordinary legal thriller. The fast paced action and interesting characters kept me reading at a feverish pace. With a lull in my reading last month I was looking for a new author to read. I read the inside flap of the latest James Grippando book, BEYOND SUSPICION, and I was hooked. The second book in the Jack Swyteck series (THE PARDON being the first), BEYOND SUSPICION starts out with Jack defending his ex-girlfriend, Jessie Merrill, in a case worth 1.5 million dollars. He wins the case and soon after Jessie ends up dead, in Jack¿s own bathroom. Suddenly Jack Swyteck is the prime suspect in her death. Jack teams up with Theo Knight to attempt to uncover the details around the death of Jessie Merrill and the action kicks in. More than just a legal thriller this book has some great story lines. Jack¿s wife Cindy Swyteck is having nightmares from her troubled past. She is my favorite character in the whole book. I felt the author did a wonderful job creating the tension around Cindy. She is dealing with the fact that Jack is the suspect in the death of his own ex-girlfriend, her troubled back-story with Esteban, and her past coming to her in dreams. All of which are sewn together seamlessly. There are some other good characters that play integral parts as well. Yuri, a ruthless thug, and Katrina an insider who has her own demons to deal with, are two of my favorites. If you¿re looking for a new book to read I suggest you pick up BEYOND SUSPICION. It brings a diabolical mystery, wonderful side stories, face paced action, and a twist at the end that will leave you wanting more! I recommend it along with THE PARDON.
