In my opinion Mr. Somewhat confusing in parts, but drk it quickly as it grabbed me. I’m glad both Jack, Andie and Vince made it out alive!

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 jams such a long wait for the next one to come out! I would definitely recommend this book. Bloody good tale Another great novel in the Swyteck series.

I really liked Vince, the blind police officer, but Jack, the main protagonist, and Chuck, McKenna’s father, were a little abrasive. Sergeant Vince Paulo held his best friend’s daughter, McKenna, bleeding in his arms as she uttered the name of her murderer and ex-boyfriend, Drak.


Critical Praise “[M]atching the power and drama of Grippando’s best stand-alone novels…Grippando has definitely reached a new level with this series entry….

Afraid of the Dark (Swyteck No. 9)

With all access roads sealed off, the Gestapo went from one house to the next, searching everywhere, driving all the people out in the street and looting the abandoned buildings. 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: His hhe, accused of being a Somali terrorist is actually an American citizen being held at Guantanamo.

I have read five installments and none in sequence. If you visit Lidice, you will ggippando in the company eighty-nine bronze children. We follow several different story lines: She does and had been taken to an isoslated spot by the Chief officer and his side kick. Mar 02, Chip Atkinson rated it it was amazing. It’s very well written with a lot of character development with the secondary characters. For more information about this book or to browse inside, please visit the HarperCollins website.

Jack Swyteck 1 – 10 of 15 dsrk. The killer calls himself the Dark; Andie Henning the FBI agent that Jack is hoping to marry; The Mays family who has gone through hell and back and still we don’t know the real truth about this family.

Not a cell thought out story. Vince’s computer friend and McKenna father is behind the search andhe himself goes to London unbeknown to Jack and Vince. The author spent practically the entire book trying to weave together the characters and plot. Be the first to discover new talent!


Afraid Of The Dark (Jack Swyteck, #9) by James Grippando

Because the book started with Vince the cop that found the girl and then was blindedand the jsmes of Jamal the gitmo prisoner as the killer, I was unsympathetic to Jamal for most of the book, even though he had a pretty solid alibi. To be honest, I wanted to read Gone Again, the 12th book in the series, because of Lectus’ review.

Mar 18, Joanne rated it did not like it. There are not many books that I would want to re-read but anything by this author will be a book to go back to because you will enjoy it even more the second time around. Jun 09, Scottsdale Public Library added it Shelves: His alibi for McKenna’s murder is a little far-fetched, even to Swyteck, but a lot is possible when terrorism is involved. I hadn’t really thought that people could do some of the things that are done in this book.

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.

Good suspense but too many twists and turns to keep track of, especially when listening to an audio book. Vince Paula, who we all know was instrumental in saving Theo’s life while he was on death row, also plays a huge role in this storyline.
