Description

New York Times bestselling author James Grippando delivers a powerful, nonstop thrill ride ripped from the headlines. Miami criminal defense attorney Jack Swyteck is back in his most frightening case yet, and this time the price of victory is measured in blood.

It is the most sensational murder trial since O. J. Simpson's. The nation is obsessed with Sydney Bennett, a sexy nightclub waitress and good-time girl accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter for cramping her party life. When he had agreed to defend Sydney, Jack Swyteck knew he'd be taking on the toughest and most controversial case of his career.

Millions of "TV jurors" have convicted Sydney in the court of public opinion.

When the shocking verdict of not guilty is announced, citizens across the country are outraged, and Jack is bombarded by the fallout: angry, profanity-laced phone calls and even outright threats. Media-fed rumors of "blood money"—purported seven-figure book and movie deals—ratchet up the hysteria, putting Jack's client and everyone around her at risk.

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. While the media blame Jack and his defense team, the victim's parents reach out to him, requesting his help. They don't believe the attack was the tragic result of random mob violence.

Searching for the truth about what happened that night, Jack makes a frightening discovery. 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.

It's the most watched trial since O.J. Simpson, and millions of "TV Jurors" have convicted Jack's client in the arena of public opinion. The shocking verdict--not guilty--creates an immediate uproar, from angry phone calls to outright threats. Media-fed rumors of "blood money" in the form of seven-figure book and movie deals put Sydney and everyone around her at risk. On the night of Sydney's release, the angry mob outside the jail demands its own justice. A young woman ends up dead in the frenzy, her only crime being that she bears a striking resemblance to Sydney Bennett. The media blame Jack and his defense team, but to Jack's surprise, the victim's parents reach out to him. With Jack's help, they believe they can prove that their daughter's death wasn't just a random mob tragedy. Something bigger and more organized is at work, and what happened outside the jail that night is a symptom of the evil that infected the show-stopping trial and media-spun phenomenon of Sydney Bennett"--
