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 from his past, in this spellbinding tale of suspense.

It begins at the airport, where Jack is waiting to meet his old high school buddy Kevin 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 Kevin's wife, Isabelle. She is accused 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 the truth from lies--an undertaking that proves more complicated than the seasoned attorney expects.

Inspired by an actual case, James Grippando's twisty thriller brilliantly explores the fine line between victim and perpetrator, innocence and guilt, and cold-blooded revenge and rightful retribution.

This wasn’t the best book by James Grippando but it was an easy read. Throughout the book the main character kept secrets from her husband as well as her lawyer. Consequently, it was a little drawn out.

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.
