9780061560996: Last Call Intl: A Novel of Suspense

A kid from Miami's meanest streets, Theo Knight lost his mother to a violent crime. He was on Death Row for a murder he didn't commit when lawyer Jack Swyteck proved him innocent. Now they are best friends. Theo is a semi-respectable and successful bar owner, but the past, with its risks and its terrors, has come knocking on his back door. An escaped convict from the old neighborhood wants sanctuary, and in return he is offering information: the identity of the killer who left Theo's mom lying dead in the street on a hot South Florida evening.

Theo wants justice, but the answers are not simple. He and Jack must now piece together a twenty-year-old conspiracy of greed and corruption that's pointing toward the city's most elite and powerful. And digging through a history that Theo has struggled his whole life to forget could awaken some very desperate, very deadly sleeping dogs.

About the Author:

James Grippando is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four novels. He was a trial lawyer for twelve years before the publication of his first novel in 1994 (The Pardon), and now serves as counsel at Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP. He lives in South Florida with his wife, three children, two cats, and a golden retriever named Max who has no idea that he’s a dog.

From AudioFile:

Narrator Jonathan Davis rescues the listener from an otherwise mediocre murder mystery. Once again, Davis portrays lawyer Jack Swyteck and his pal, Theo Knight, a reformed gang banger Swyteck once saved from execution. This time Theo is more the principal player in the story. He goes to prison to find the connection between the killing of an escaped prisoner and the unsolved murder of his own mother more than twenty years earlier. Davis's clear voice and vigorous style enhance the sometimes stilted dialogue, and his characterizations are true to life. A.L.H.
