After six exciting thrillers in seven years, bestselling author James Grippando is at last bringing back the main character from his blockbuster debut novel, The Pardon.

Miami lawyer Jack Swyteck is in trouble. With more than a decade of experience in the criminal courts, Jack doesn't handle many civil cases. But this one is different. His ex-girlfriend is being sued because she thought she was going to die.

When Jessie Merrill was diagnosed with a deadly disease, she worked a deal with an insurance company to get cash fast. In exchange, a group of wealthy investors were supposed to collect on the policy at her death. But Jessie was misdiagnosed, and the investors want their money back. Now.

At the trial, Jack pulls off a brilliant victory and Jessie gets to keep the $1.5 million from the investors. Two days later, her body turns up in Jack's bathtub. As the evidence mounts against him, Jack finds himself on a collision course with dark secrets from the past and a possible killer who is beyond suspicion.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A Hitchcockian thriller…[with] well-placed twists and turns.”

    Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

  • “[Grippando] certainly has the imagination and research skills to plot up a storm. Readers…will find themselves riveted.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[Beyond Suspicion] is chock-full of legal-thriller atmosphere and local color, and it’s easily a match for anything written by big names such as Grisham or Margolin or Lescroart. If further Swytek adventures are anything like this one, keep ‘em comin’.” 


  • “Grippando writes in compact prose, quickly moving from one situation to the next. The legal situations are clearly written and understandable, and the characters are well rounded…fans of legal thrillers will particularly enjoy this latest novel.
