“Grippando has definitely reached a new level with this series entry. . . . One of his best.” —Booklist (starred review)

A young girl’s murder sets off a grisly cascade of crime, death, and intrigue—and sends criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck after a sinister group of terrorists on the verge of unleashing chaos across the globe. From New York Times bestseller James Grippando, the ninth Jack Swyteck novel, Afraid of the Dark—perfect for fans of Steve Martini, Phillip Margolin, and Jo Nesbo—is a rollercoaster thrill ride into the very heart of evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Courtney | 2/14/2014

    " I didn't like this one as much as I hoped, given I've loved all his other books. It was a little confusing. And I hate it when they give characters names that are close to each other. There was an Andie and an Alicia. And a Hassam and a Habib. Too confusing. Still, I finished it in a day. I just hope his next book is better. "

    " A good read. Plot was good in parts but a little thin in others. Will read more by James Grippando though. "

    " Good twists and turns to keep the reader in the thick of it. Although the characters have depth, it was somewhat difficult for me to connect with them "
