    Interesting and exciting

    I really enjoyed this book. I have been a fan of James Grippando's writing for a very long time. I first discovered his books sometime around 2006 and quickly tackled his backlist. I think a few books have slipped past me over the years but I try to stay as up to date with his writing as I can. I have found his books to be reliably good and this book was no exception. This book was rather hard for me to put down at times because I was so involved in the story. This is the fifteenth book in the Jack Swyteck series but it could be easily read as a stand alone. As a long time reader of the series, I really enjoyed getting the chance to catch up with Jack and Theo. Their characters have definitely matured over the course of the series but they are still quite the impressive pair. Jack is on a case that is a little different this time around. He is asked by his grandmother to help out with an immigration case. Julia has been taken into custody and faces possible deportation and her daughter is not taking this well. I have not read anything that I can remember that deals with the legal system as it pertains to immigration law and I was really surprised by how different that system is. I found all of the legal maneuvers to be really interesting in this story. There is a bit more going on in this book in addition to the immigration trial. Danger seems to be following Jack's client around as he works to keep both her and her daughter safe. The pace picks up as the book progresses and culminates with some pretty intense action. I think that I was holding my breath for quite a while towards the end of the book. This book did have a few shifts in its focus. The story started out really focused on the legal issues and how that system worked. At a certain point in the book, things shifted gears and it became much more of an action thriller. I do wish that things would have wrapped up a little neater. I guess I am used to Jack's cases coming to a rather satisfying conclusion before the last page but I didn't get that feeling with this book although I felt like this ending was probably a lot more realistic. I would recommend this book to others. This is a fantastic series that I really feel like is worth the read. The characters in this series are amazing and the cases are always exciting and thought-provoking. I can't wait to read more from this fantastic author. I received a digital review copy of this book from HarperCollins Publishers - Harper via Edelweiss.
