Miami criminal lawyer Jack Swyteck's beautiful ex-girlfriend Jessie Merrill sold her life insurance benefit for a cash payment when she was diagnosed with a deadly disease. Now, thanks to Jack's courtroom prowess, Jessie can keep the $1.5 million she received. But both Swyteck and those who expected to double their investment when Jessie died, it turns out, were dupes of a gorgeous scam artist who was never sick at all. And when Jessie's corpse is discovered in Jack's bathtub, he's suddenly wanted for murder. Framed and desperate, he's up against the police and a powerful criminal consortium willing to go to any lengths to retrieve their money. To save his freedom and his career, Jack must exhume the dark secrets of a buried past. But first he has to escape the murderous vengeance of a cold killer who is beyond suspicion . . .and who wants Jack Swyteck's blood.

Another solid Grippando mystery staring Jack Swyteck. Humorous and exciting. 7 of 10 for me.

An engrossing thriller with some neat twist and turns.

The downsides: (1) Theo, the sidekick who's more annoying than entertaining. (2) The quips and dry sarcastic wit that so common with American authors. It's cheesy, cliched and annoying. I'm going to harp on this fact in every review of Grippando's books. They're good but there are some limits. (3) Some silly hollywood like action...as if criminal lawyers have to endure James Bond like moments.

Despite these hangups it's a good book to read and definitely recommended for the mystery in the courtroom.
