4.5 stars! Talk about a twisty-turny read!! I was definitely surprised by the end. It was different, having a book where Jack wasn't in the courtroom and, although I missed that part, the rest was so good that it was actually okay with me. This was one of my favorite Jack Swyteck novels!!

Have been reading Grippando's Jack Swytek series in order. This is the best I have read so far in this enjoyable series. Gripping and awfully hard to put down.

I didn't think Grippando's stories could get any worse than Hear No Evil. Sadly, I was let down.

This book takes cliches to a lower level. Swytek, a defense lawyer, is suddenly hurled into the seat of a hostage negotiator, while people behind the scenes try to prevent anyone from coming out alive.

Over the top characterizations, lack of thrills makes this a poor summer read.
