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.

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.

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.

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!!

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

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.
