9780062109866: Blood Money (Jack Swyteck Novel)

New York Times bestselling author James Grippando delivers a nonstop thrill ride ripped from the headlines.

Sydney Bennett, a sexy nightclub waitress, is accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter for cramping her party life. Jack Swyteck knows he's taking on the most controversial case of his career by defending Sydney.

When the shocking verdict of not guilty is announced, citizens across the country are outraged. Media-fed rumors of "blood money"—purported seven-figure book and movie deals—ratchet up the hysteria. On the night of Sydney's release, an angry mob outside the jail has gathered to serve its own justice. In the frenzy, an innocent young woman bearing a striking resemblance to the reviled Sydney Bennett ends up in a coma. But the victim's parents don't believe the attack was the tragic result of random mob violence.

Searching for the truth, Jack discovers larger and much more powerful forces are working in the shadows, and what happened outside the jail is a symptom of an evil that infected the show-stopping trial and media-spun phenomenon of Sydney Bennett.

About the Author:

James Grippando is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-five novels. He was a trial lawyer for twelve years before the publication of his first novel in 1994 (The Pardon), and later served 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 Booklist:

The latest Jack Swyteck legal thriller begins with a controversial not-guilty verdict, a violent act that leaves a young woman in a coma, and accusations of corruption leveled at Jack himself. His client, a woman accused of murdering her daughter because the girl impinged on her carefree lifestyle, is acquitted, but Jack knows there’s a lot more to the case than he’s been allowed to reveal in court. And after a woman who looks startlingly like his client is beaten nearly to death, Jack discovers that this was no weirdly coincidental act of violence but rather a result of something hidden behind the media spectacle surrounding the trial. After a few lethargic Swyteck novels, the author charged back in 2011 with Afraid of the Dark, and this one is similarly energetic, with a story that’s full of twists and turns and, not incidentally, some well-aimed criticisms of the way high-profile trials are covered by the news media. A timely and very well executed story. --David Pitt
