    1. I didn't really expect much from this because usually when I read mystery or thriller books they tend to be of average quality but this one was actually pretty good. It's about a lawyer who goes back to work at the Freedom Institute for a while to help them out financially and gets involved in a case where the inmate is on death row for raping and killing a girl yet the girl's mother thinks that the inmate is actually interesting. The writing was pretty good, above average, and the plot was enga [...]


    2. 3.5 Jack Swyteck is a good guy, he is a good lawyer and a good man. For many years he worked for the Freedom Institute, getting inmates off death row, before branching off on his own. Now successful in his own practice, he returns to the Institute, not to work for them again, but to rent a space to provide the Institute with some much needed money. At least that's the plan, but he is barely in the door when he becomes part of a case involving a missing seventeen year old adopted girl. A solid se [...]


    3. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I absolutely loved this book! I first stumbled upon this author about 10 years ago and have yet to be let down by one of his books. I am pretty sure that there may be a book or two of his that I have missed along the way but I have read the bulk of his work. The Jack Swyteck series is smartly written. I love how much this character has developed over the course of the series. I really like that each new book in the series can still be easily [...]


    4. Gone Again had all the ingredients to be a good read, but for me, it missed the mark. It was okay, nothing more, nothing less.


    5. Simply Superb James Grippando is a master when it comes to writing thrillers. I've read and enjoyed every book he's written. This story has plenty of twists and turns, and certainly kept me guessing right to the very end. It's definitely one of those books where you find yourself reading faster and faster to find out what happens. Hands down a very worthwhile book to read.


    6. Readers can pick up with this series with this book, which I appreciate. Strong characters, witty and smart dialogue. For many years now, I have been over the legal thrillers. They tend to bog me down, with the exception of David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter. However, I did enjoy this book. With adoptions from war torn countries on the rise, this book provided an interesting look at RAD and the impact on a family. (while I have always liked Grippando, any author who mentions his Golden retriever i [...]


    7. Another legal system thriller with suspense minus gore or unnecessarily abusive or offensive language.** Certainly NOT the bottom of the barrel when it comes to 'filler' reading. The Jack Swyteck series is cleanly written with plenty of along-the-way researched information on the US legal and penal system.Pleasant to read. Interesting personal dilemmas for all characters. Nicely toned.The key figure is a well-educated, quick-thinking lawyer with an FBI wife and a father once a leading Judge. Dep [...]


    8. Swyteck, on the verge of becoming a father as his FBI wife's troubled pregnancy becomes embroiled in another "death row" case this one the mother of the victim convinces him that the convicted murderer is innocent & Jack, Theo & his cadre from the Freedom Institute rise to the occasion


    9. GONE AGAINJames GrippandoMr. Grippando has a talent for legal and personal fiction that is quite impressive. I can’t call it a thriller as it’s be touted as it is more a human story of compassion, justice, love of the law and one man’s inability to turn away.Jack Swyteck is a man of principle and a firm believer in justice and so when Dylan Reeves is on death row for the murder of a young girl, and the girl’s mother astonishes everyone when she says her daughter called her it turns the c [...]


    10. This was my first Jack Swyteck novel, and for a character that has been around for over 20 books, I was impressed that this was fresh, interesting, and kept my interest. Also, I didn't figure out who'd "done it" too early in the tale! I will want to read more if this author when I want a mystery that involves a lawyer as the main protagonist!


    11. This was a pretty good book that is well written, it flowed well. The story has lots of twists and turns in it that keeps you reading. Not bad.


    12. It has been a while since I read a Grippando novel. Forgot how much I liked his great characters and plot movement. Have already download another.



    13. James Grippando recently won the 2017 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction for this book. The other two finalists for the award were Graham Moore's The Last Days of Night and Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things, both of which are very fine novels inspired by actual legal cases, so this year's competition for the award was impressive. In my opinion, Grippando's book was indeed the most deserving of the award. Gone Again realistically and sensitively depicts the complicated interactions between an att [...]


    14. A Beautiful 17yr Old Adopted Girl disappears on her way to school. No surprise as to who did it but not for the reasons you think.The more i read the less sympathy i had for Sashi. I understand Sashi had a difficult childhood but so did the children of war torn Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.As for the parents, Debra was in a very difficult position, loved her 3 children very much and wanted nothing but the best for them and Gavin well buddy life isn't all raindrops on roses and whiskers on kitten [...]


    15. Reading this book was a long journey going down multiple roads and ending up at the wrong destination.


    16. Only my second James Grippando thriller but my first Jack Swyteck novel. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Jack and will definitely read the other books in this series.


    17. This is the first time I've read Grippando, but this is excellent, a mix of legal thriller, mystery, and family drama that works throughout.Attorney Jack Swyteck has returned to the building of the group he used to work for, which defends death row inmates. He is not in their employ, but paying rent as a way to try to help them out. He's the only one in the office when Debra Burgette comes in, looking for an attorney to take on the case of Dylan Reeves, the man who supposedly killed her adopted [...]


    18. I had no idea that this book is part of a series; and book number #12 for that! I grabbed the book at the library, and you know how publishers are: they refuse to include that the book is part of a series on the cover. However, this one reads as a stand-alone. I didn't need any previous knowledge to get into this one. And I like it so much that I'm going to go back and read the first one. Yes sir!What I liked is all that death row/who did/I'm innocent thing. But I especially liked that most of t [...]


    19. 3.5 stars. I read this in the span of 6 hours at work because today was a slow day. A page turner, definitely, with a few twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I enjoyed the court scenes, the family dynamics, and how the story explored adopting children from less-privileged backgrounds, specifically children that has been through trauma. Would have liked a more in-depth explanation of the murderer's intention and psychological reasoning when they murdered Sashi; I felt like the reveal wa [...]


    20. Gone Again is an excellent legal thriller. Grippano manages to take a very over used topic--corporal punishment--and create an exciting plot with a very creative angle. Believable character and intense legal drama make the book a tough one to put down. I did not care for the ending, found it rather anti-climatic after a few hints that something big was yet to be revealed, but it did not detract from my overall enjoyment.


    21. Another fine legal thriller by Grippando, a master storyteller who creates imaginative scenarios set against the colorful background of south Florida. Here, a highly dysfunctional family becomes entangled in the legal system when a daughter runs away and is believed murdered. The man convicted of her killing is headed for the death chamber, when new questions arise regarding the crime. A contorted plot that twists and turns, flips and flops keeps your attention right to the final page.


    22. This was better than a few of the more recent books, but not up to some of his best. I enjoy the interactions with Theo, but he's not in this book very much. The story was interesting, and seeing Jack back on the case for a death row inmate was refreshing - a returning to roots story, but the characters he was dealing with were flat, dull, and truly uninteresting.



    23. This was my first Jack Swyteck book. I enjoyed it but was ready for it to be over. A little too long for me.



    24. Library audible (A brief reminder of the story for myself) Actual story as it turns out is simple and quite common in that the essentially the internal turmoil of the family is at the bottom of the final revealed outcome of Sashi Burgette. She vanished three years ago on her way to school after hoping out of the car after another argument and running away yet again. The night after the teenager’s disappearance, ex-con Dylan Reeves was stopped for drunk driving. Sashi’s panties with Dylan's s [...]


    25. I saw this book on PD Workman's Teaser Tuesday and thought it was interesting. Then I realised this was the same book that Lectus reviewed it and went back to search for it. The first time I looked, the NLB didn't have it but the second time was a success! And when I went to (because the author's name sounded familiar), I found out that this was recommended to me before! I totally understood why it was recommended so many times because I found it so addictive that I was willing to sacrifice sle [...]


    26. "Vor der Wahrheit" befasst sich mit einem komplexen Fall, bei dem man bis zuletzt nicht sicher sein kann, was genau passiert ist. Sashi Burgette, damals siebzehn Jahre alt, verschwand vor drei Jahren spurlos und obwohl bereits ein Mann für den Mord an ihr verurteilt wurde, ist ihre Mutter sich vollkommen sicher, dass sie noch lebt. Sie will nun, dass Jack Swyteck vor Gericht beweist, dass der vermeintliche Mörder keiner ist. Die Zeit dafür ist sehr knapp und der Fall unglaublich verworren - j [...]


    27. I haven’t read any other Jack Swyteck books so I maybe at a disadvantage here. Also, this was an audio book which made it difficult to follow the back and forth aspect of the story.Sashi is an adopted teen. Her younger brother was also adopted. It was his adoption that led the family to take in Sashi; the adoptive mother, Debbie, didn’t want to split them up. Sashi was troubled when they adopted her and didn’t seem to get any better.As she often ran away from home, when she went missing so [...]
