“[A] thrill-a-minute novel.”

USA Today


Jack Swyteck is back in action in Born to Run—the eighth outing for the danger-prone Miami lawyer in author James Grippando’s New York Times bestselling series. In this timely and spellbinding thriller, Swyteck is embroiled in shady Washington D.C. politics when his own father is selected by the President to replace the Vice President, killed in a hunting accident. Born to Run crackles with suspense, surprises, and razor sharp wit—“a fun 200-proof yarn,” the Washington Post raves—and serves as indisputable evidence, as crime fiction superstar Harlan Coben attests, that “Grippando grips from page one.”

Listener Opinions

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

    " I love James Grippando's books especially his Jack Swyteck's novels. However, this book is pretty unbelievable and there are a lot of holes in it. It seems like you would have to really suspend belief in order to truly enjoy it. I give it three stars because in true Grippando fashion it is action packed and a very interesting concept. What if someone knew something about the president and could blackmail him? It does all make sense at the end even though it was wrapped up extremely fast. I would recommend this book in order to continue the series but it isn't one I would recommend to start this series or to start reading James Grippando. "

    " Another good story from James Grippando, wonderfully read by Jonathan Davis. "

    " Jack Swyteck is back and involved in another thriller. I have read to be disappointed in anything I have read by James Grippando. From beginning to end I was intrigued by the secret that could bring down the President of the United States. Jack gets caught up in the intrigue when his father is nominated to be vice-president after the death of the elected vice-president. The ending and the secret are both surprising. Can't wait for the next installment. "

    " Turning 40 can be traumatic enough on its own, but have your dad nominated to be vice president at the same time? More than a busy time for Swyteck with some entertaining plot twists to take his mind off his age. Qustions to be answered from the first chapter on with some obvious answers. "
