I was surprised by how much more I liked this book than I liked the first one: "The Pardon."
The issue of child slavery in the chocolate industry was worked into the story, which was interesting and heartbreaking at the same time. On to the next book!

A thrilling story with a twist that no one will see coming. Keeps you on the edge of your throughout the whole book.

The weakest Swytek book I've read so far. It's not terrible but it's not all that entertaining.

There are some digressing moments involving Theo the sidekick which aren't particularly interesting.

The main story had some intrigue but failed to deliver, for me that is, as the book wore on. The ending is anti-climactic and disappointing.

Again Grippando seems to want to induce spy like action in his books and it's a bit over the top. Swytek, a Miami lawyer, suddenly decides that he needs to go to an African country to get some information, which is hardly credible enough and leads to a high octane moment which was worthy of page skipping.

I recommend this with slight reservation.
