The Pardon is a well written story, that will keep you interested until the very end. The characters are well developed, and I felt empathy with them. However, I did not give this book 5 stars because I felt there were gaps in the story: how did we get from there to here in several situations. Plus there were grammar mistakes and misspellings. Not that big a deal but I am a word person, and these things distracted me. I will read more books by this author; he tells a good tale.

    A good read

    I was looking for a new series to read since I have pretty much exhausted Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben. While this book was not in their league, I did enjoy the book and would like to read the next in the series to see how the characters develop. A little predictable, but a good read nonetheless.

    Quick Reading!

    This book was very interesting and an easy to read. The biggest problem was the misspelled words. There were many of those as well as words left out. Someone needs to be better at editing ebooks because misspelled words can make reading any type of material very difficult. I did, however, enjoy the book and hope to read others by Mr. Grippando.

    The Pardon

    The story itself is intriguing and holds the reader's attention. The proof reading or lack of made reading thhis annoying. There were numerous gramatical errors, as well as, misspelled words and the wrong use of words like two, to, and two. Many times I had to guess what word was meant. If a book is published it should have thorough proofreading.

    The Pardon

    I agree with a prior reviewer that this ebook needed to be proofed and edited prior to publishing. Just as much care should be taken with ebooks as with printed copies.
