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 twenty-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 reader will ever forget.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There’s plenty of shoot-’em-up action,…but Grippando goes beyond the formula. Touches of humor…and a feeling for the history of the city propel this thriller beyond the ordinary. In addition to action, the author gives us people we can root for, both on the street and in their private lives.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri | 2/16/2014

    " Very good, as usual this author turns out can't put down books, recommend highly! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/15/2014

    " This was good. It's a legal type suspense, sort of along the lines of John Grisham. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suvi | 2/7/2014

    " Although this is not generally my genre of books, Mr. Grippando, kept my interest with the fast paced story. The references to Miami places was delightful and so much more meaningful than had references to a strange place. I listened to it and have to say that the actor reading the book was very good also. I fell in love with the whole Jack Swyteck crew and probably will read more in the future. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Grippando as he did an author talk and all the other listeners agreed that he was wonderful. Great presentation and a really nice guy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 2/3/2014

    " My first book by this author and I am definitely coming back, there seems to be a book before this one, because at least 3 of the characters seem to have a back story. There was some violence that was over the top for me, so no 5 stars, but given the setting (street gangs) that I have no knowledge of, maybe the violence is accurate, hopefully not. I like the relationships between Jack the white lawyer, Theo, a black child of the ghetto and former death row inmate, Andie the FBI agent and Cy, Theo's uncle. They are all complex and real emotions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/22/2014

    " I like the characters, but the plot was only so-so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melonie Hill | 1/18/2014

    " I am never disappointed with a James Grippando book! Love the Jack Series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 1/16/2014

    " Graphic, but good novel. 7 of 10 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Bagley | 1/15/2014

    " Maybe more like 2.5 stars. The reason I like the mystery/thriller genre is that I'm a sucker for the "Whoa, I didn't see that coming" moment. Almost always I don't see it coming, but in this one, I did. It was pretty clear to me, too. Not Grippando's best effort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayce | 1/12/2014

    " very good book. You feel like you know these people. Hard to put down. "

    " What a great plot, characters and writing. Really enjoyed this book and makes me want to read more of James Grippando. You can really get into the action. Recommend Highly! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nan Williams | 11/3/2013

    " Hard to put down, but not all that satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Brown | 9/25/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Su | 10/22/2011

    " I just could not like this mystery. I didn't care what happened to either the good guys or the bad guys because the characters weren't fleshed out very well. I noticed that overall the book got a much higher rating than I gave it, but still I can't recommend it unless you are stuck on an island! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 10/13/2011

    " Twisted and a bit stretched plot lines, involving Theo Knight and his family. Suspenseful nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M Martin Penner | 6/18/2011

    " Change...it can happen but it's hard and we still find ourselves falling back on those tendencies. Staying strong and doing the right thing is the key. Interesting read but not one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 9/14/2010

    " Een wat minder goed verhaal uit de reeks, maar op zich geen slecht boek. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 9/9/2010

    " Not as good as other books I've read by this author. I finished it, but could have given up on it at about any time. "

    " This is a great continuation of the Jack Swyteck series. Grippando's chapters are concise and loaded with suspense without all the pointless filler. This is a good read for any who-done-it fan and is presented in an effortless way-kind of like the Hardy Boys only cooler!! "
