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.”

Born To Run is James Grippando's newest novel featuring the Miami lawyer, Jack Swyteck.

Mr. Grippando is one of my short list of authors that I purchase without researching what the book is about in advance. I won't go into the plot, as the publisher and another reviewer have done a great job.

I gave this book 4 stars, due to the fact that one main character and his plight just didn't ring true for me.

I loved the parts between Jack and Andie, his FBI girlfriend, and the continuing relationship struggle between Jack and his father, former governor Harry Swyteck. His friend, Theo, had a minor role in this episode, and didn't help Jack much until the very end of the book.

I also would have liked to have more of the action happening in Washington.

Overall, I still would have purchased this book, and hope that the next one has Jack taking on some difficult legal battle.

I truly appreciate that Mr. Grippando does NOT use a cookie cutter template when writing his novels, like a lot of authors are currently doing.

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.

Beware of what you wish for... Dealing with a midlife crisis as he turns 40, Miami attorney Jack Swyteck buys a classic Mustang. Meanwhile, his once-estranged father, Harry, former governor of Florida, has an opportunity to revive his political ambitions. When the vice-president has a heard attack & falls off a boat while alligator-hunting, there's suddenly a job opening -- and the president asks Harry to fill it.

That's where the best Swyteck thriller in years kicks off. Jack, accompanying his father to Washington, is approached by a number of different individuals, all suggesting that there was something awry with the veep's death -- and that a presidential secret could make Harry the new president. We meet the killer fairly early in the book -- he has his own problems to deal with, including the Mafia on his tail -- and the denouement ends up being a fairly predictable standoff at the OK Corral.

Still, Grippando does a great job of character development, even with the minor players in the novel. The result is a solid thriller that will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens & how Jack, Harry, Theo, et. al. manage to battle their way through the fog to understand the plots in which they have become unwittingly enmeshed. The Washington and political background is an intriguing addition to Swyteck's more usual stomping ground of Miami.

And the Mustang and vice-presidential ambitions? Well, as with all good thrillers, their fate isn't decided until the final pages.

I love the Swyteck series and have been binge reading them. This book didn't ring true to me with one of the characters so I gave it only 4 stars. But I still enjoyed it. On to book # 9.

Action started right away. With all the political events going on in DC in the past, this made a great surprising ending. Very good book!
