Afraid of the Dark by James Grippando

Jack Swyteck is back, and is trying to save a man from the death penalty for terrorist activity.


HarperCollins sent me an ARC of this book that will be published this month (thank you).  You can buy this book in hardcover, ebook or audio.  Check with your local bookstore to pick up a copy.


Mr. Grippando mixes a variety of darknesses together in this book.  There's a whiff of terrorism, lots of greed, sexual abuse of young girls and murder.  Each of those could have been the entire plot, but in this story they are all entwined in ways that a bit odd, but very believable.


Whether they are good guys or bad, the male characters are very strong and determined.  Past and present mix in this tale.  Even the characters working together aren't telling each other everything.


This one will keep you on toes and your fingers will keep flipping the pages to see where the story will go next.  It's not for the lighthearted.


If you like action, mystery, suspense and danger, you will like this book.


If you would like my copy of this ARC, leave a comment here on the blog and email me at info @ bookfaerie.com (take the spaces out) with your name AND address and the reason why you would like to read this book.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.
