Grippando is back with another Swyteck-based novel that brings together fiction and the realities of our everyday world. This one is based on the attempted murder of a woman from Oklahoma who had the sorry misfortune of being mistaken for that monstrosity of a human being, Casey Anthony.
This tale begins with attorney Jack Swyteck defending Sydney Louise Bennett, a self-loving, hardcore single mother who has been accused of murdering her little daughter, Emma. Though the evidence is circumstantial, her guilt has already been decided in the court of public opinion.
It's a dark and thrilling ride through the corridors of our legal system and media, replete with truth-tellers and twisters of facts. A trial lawyer himself for 12 years, Grippando
sets you right in the witness chair as he recreates court scenes and unravels the mystery of Bennett. You'll be spellbound by this one.
