MOST DAN­GER­OUS PLACE

Athleisure - - Frontpage - James Grip­pando Harper Collins

De­fend­ing a woman ac­cused of mur­der­ing the man who sex­u­ally as­saulted her, Mi­ami lawyer Jack Swyteck must un­cover where the truth lies be­tween in­no­cence, vengeance, and jus­tice in this tale of sus­pense - based on shock­ing true-life events - from the New York Times.

Ac­cord­ing to the FBI, the most dan­ger­ous place for a woman be­tween the ages of twenty and thirty is in a re­la­tion­ship with a man. Those sta­tis­tics be­come all too per­sonal when Jack Swyteck takes on a new client tied to his past.

Most Dan­ger­ous Place be­gins at the air­port, where Jack is wait­ing to meet his old high school buddy, Keith In­gra­ham, a high-pow­ered banker based in Hong Kong, com­ing to Mi­ami for his young daugh­ter’s surgery. But their long-awaited reunion is abruptly de­railed when the po­lice ar­rest Keith’s wife, Is­abelle, in the terminal, ac­cus­ing her of con­spir­ing to kill the man who raped her in col­lege. Jack quickly agrees to rep­re­sent Isa, but soon dis­cov­ers that to see jus­tice done, he must sep­a­rate truth from lies—an un­der­tak­ing that proves more com­pli­cated than the sea­soned at­tor­ney ex­pects.

In­spired by an ac­tual case in­volv­ing a vic­tim of sex­ual as­sault sent to prison for the death of her at­tacker, James Grip­pando’s twisty thriller bril­liantly ex­plores the fine line be­tween vic­tim and per­pe­tra­tor, in­no­cence and guilt, and cold-blooded re­venge and right­ful ret­ri­bu­tion.
