I have been following the adventures of Jack Swyteck for twenty years. I have watched him develop over the years and was thrilled to see this one open with a wedding. In Attorney Jack Swyteck's world it would be unusual to actually make it through a honeymoon though.
This story takes us to Cuba and a drilling explosion in Cuban waters. The oil is flowing towards Florida shores, and the United States is helpless. Politically we are not allowed to even help with the clean-up.
Jack represents an American woman whose Cuban husband was killed on the rig. As in all Grippando novels, Jack gets much more involved in the politics of the disaster than most lawyers would. His new wife, Andie, is an FBI agent on an undercover mission that is also involved with this crisis.
The involvement of Jack's sidekick, Theo, gives the reader the lighter moments in this exciting novel.
Black Horizon should definitely be the next book you pick up.
