Yes it is time for another book review. This book has been added to my top five favorite books of all time. I love a good crime/mystery and this one truly fit the bill. It has many twists and turns and at no time was I able to figure out who did it until the very end and James Grippando finally disclosed it. I had never heard of this author and he is now in my cue to try to read all of his books. This book was #12 in a series about attorney Jack Swyteck. I have already downloaded another of his books to read in my Overdrive program on my phone.

There will be spoilers from this point on.
According to Good Reads site:
“Sashi Burgette vanished three years ago on her way to school. The night after the teenager’s disappearance, ex-con Dylan Reeves was stopped for drunk driving. An article of Sashi’s clothing was found in his truck, and a police videotape of his drunken explanation under interrogation sealed his fate at trial. Now, just days from Kyle’s execution, Sashi’s mother visits Jack Swyteck, doing pro bono work at the Freedom Institute, and delivers shocking news: “Sashi called me.”
The police dismiss the call as a cruel hoax. The State Attorney refuses to consider the new evidence, insisting the case is closed. The governor has already signed the death warrant. An innocent man may be executed and time is running out—unless his lawyers can locate Sashi.
A man of principle who believes in justice, Jack jumps into the investigation. But the deeper he digs the more he discovers that nothing is what it appears to be. Not the victim. Not her alleged killer. And definitely not Sashi’s parents, whose grief ruptured their marriage, each openly blaming the other for what happened to their daughter.
As their gut-wrenching and hopelessly conflicting version of events unfolds in a Miami courtroom, it becomes clear there is something even more difficult to find than a long-missing girl . . .”
