Summary

Many years ago, Jack Swyteck saved Theo Knight's life.

Theo grew up on the streets of Miami's roughest neighborhood and lost his mother to a violent crime. Although his uncle Cy tried his best to raise him right, by the time he was a teenager, Theo was on death row for a murder he didn't commit. Jack was the lawyer who proved him innocent.

Now a successful bar owner, Theo has turned things around. But he needs Jack's help again, this time more than ever.

An escaped convict from the old neighborhood shows up at Theo's back door, asking for help. In return, he'll finger the man who murdered Theo's mother. But the answers aren't so simple, and soon Theo's own life is in danger.

Jack and Theo must piece together a 20-year-old conspiracy of greed and corruption that leads to the very top of Miami's elite while revisiting a past that Theo has tried hard to forget. But Theo also has the opportunity to seek the revenge that has fueled him since the day he found his mother dead in the street on a hot Miami night.

Last Call is a brilliant and bullet-fast thriller, complete with revelations that no listener will ever forget.

Investigate another Jack Swyteck case.

Excellent book

Excellent book, the characters were real, I agonized over Theo's pain, dreaded the possibility that Uncle Cy might have been the killer, or that Theo would die before he could find out who really killed his mother.

The music between 'cd's was annoying. Someone could have edited out the filler that is used to provide transitions for cd's.

Not As Good

This installment of Grippando's Jack Swytek series focuses on Jack's best friend Theo Knight, a man Jack saved from death row. Theo owns his own bar and is on the verge of expanding his business when Isaac Reems, former gang member and an escaped convict, shows up asking for help. Theo isn't so inclined but Reems's bargaining chip is that he can reveal the identity of the person who killed Theo's mother 20 years earlier. The FBI, hot on the trail of Reems, suspects Theo is helping the convict, and when Reems is murdered, their focus is on Theo. Jack and Theo suspect all is tied to his mother's death but that road leads to danger.

This addition to the series is middle-of-the-road, better than some, not as good as others. Grippando brings back FBI agent Andie Henning, and although chemistry is hinted at between Andie and Jack, it's just not there. Swytek seems off his game and Theo's constant emotion is anger, although there is good cause. More is learned of Theo's Uncle Cy, an interesting character.

Jonathan Davis was excellent with the delivery of the story and made the book more enjoyable.

Great

Grippando's books never let me down..they are always first class. Keeps me guessing until the very end. Excellent work by the narrator.
Also liked the music and sounds during the audio, gave an extra feel of suspense. Uncle Cy's jazz at the end of the audio was a beautiful ending.

Keep me trying to figure out the end

I liked this story. It kept me interested and wanting to listen to more. I like a story that I can't figure out immediately and this one did just that. It keeps the listener intrigued to figure out who killed Theo's mom. The narrator is excellent and easy to listen to. He has a great voice for each character and somehow makes them come alive. Awesome!

Annoying Music

Excellent Book...............but the music (?) between chapters has to be the most annoying I have ever experienced in an audiobook.

Great book

This is a typical Grippando story with great character development, twisty plot and a narrator who truly 'plays' the characters. The terrible thing about this recording is the music which is loud, discordant and totally inappropriate to the story line.

Sound production

The music was okay for the first two chapters then it didn't really match the mood of the story. It was also so loud at the beginning that you could barely hear the first few sentences. Other than that the storyline was good. I have listened to the book twice because of the story.

Good read again, but the music!! Again.

This time the music breaks were even worse; it sounded like belly dancing music. Didn't relate to story at all. The only music that suited was the Sax piece at the end. Why in the world didn't they use that if they had to have musical breaks??? Recommended.
