Most Dangerous Place (Jack Swyteck #13) by James Grippando

When Jack goes to meet an old school buddy at the airport, he thought he'd be the only one there for them.  However the police show up and arrest his friend's wife.  For murder long ago...

Harper sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published February 21st.

Isa says she's innocent but Jack knows she's holding something back.  They returned to the states for their little girl's ear surgery.  No one knew this case was pending.  As he begins to dig in the case, he finds bribery, lies, rape and more.  There were wicked men in Isa's earlier life and they are still around.

He gets stuck working with a less honorable attorney.  His friend gets arrested, too.  And no one wants to tell the whole truth.  The truth is not pleasant; it's even sordid.  Jack isn't sure their marriage will survive this crisis.

It's a fascinating read with lots of courtroom activity.  People from the past appear like ghosts.  And Jack comes very close to dying.  The one creating all the fear and making demands during the case liked to control things and had enough money and power to do so.  The culprit surprised me but not Isa.

This one will keep you guessing until the end.  Even the assistant district attorney isn't playing fair.
