Series hero Jack finds himself at Gitmo, defending Prisoner Numberwho turns out to be the very same Jamal, who, interestingly enough, turns out to have a seemingly rock-solid alibi covering the time he was supposed to be murdering McKenna and blinding Vince: All men were shot dead by a firing squad. If you visit Lidice, you will stand in the company eighty-nine bronze children.

Dec 30, Jane Biggerstaff rated it did not like it. His client, accused of being a Somali terrorist is actually an American citizen being held at Guantanamo. I loved reading about the investigation focused on McKenna’s killer, but the terrorist aspect was only somewhat interesting.


This book is filled with twists and turns.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Precisely what had landed Jamal in Gitmo, and why does he refuse to talk about it, even to his own lawyers? I find myself afraaid the books where the action takes place in the courtroom the best, but it seems like those don’t happen often enough to keep a smile on my face.

Publishes Uames 1st — Recv’d Arc from Publisher in lieu of honest review of book. At times the story seemed to spread griippando in every direction hitting upon lots of hot topics: The only way this book makes sense is if women are just stupid.

They were nine and eleven when they were gassed. At times I wanted to cry for him and at other times I felt he knew so much more than he let on. He is a character who I would love to continue meeting in future books.

Afraid of the Dark (Swyteck No. 9)

Library Audible To remind me of the story Further insight and reminder of gitmo Jack Swyteck, is on his most dangerous case yet, uncovering a sinister underground world that has him racing across the globe. It was multifaceted and fast paced. The last part is a personal issue for Jack as he travels to Prague to learn more about his grandfather. Recommended to Richard by: I really liked Grippandl, the blind police officer, but Jack, the main protagonist, and Chuck, McKenna’s father, were a little abrasive.

I am a fan of Jack Swyteck and his interesting and diverse life. But, the NLB e-Reads programme didn’t have it, so I borrowed Book 9 because the title sounded interesting, and I really wanted to see if this could work as a standalone.


The Jack Swytek series has sort of been all over the map for me. I found myself unable to suspend my disbelief enough to love this book. This jamss was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile As with the other books in the series, the action is fast-paced but often unbelievable.

Petrak, as it turns out, was a very dangerous name to have in But if Jamal is innocent, then the man who murdered McKenna and took Vince’s sight is still out there. A visit there is a visit to sacred ground. I read it slowly, not because it didn’t grab me but because I savor Grippando’s books, try to make them last so it doesn’t seem like such a long wait for the next one to come out! Flash forward three years. I will definitely be looking out for other books in the series.

Jack Swyteck, a defence attorney, comes to the aid of Jamal after he’s been accused of terrorist activity. That was minutes before a blast made everything go black for Vince – forever.
