We rated this book:


The body was left on display for all to see. FBI Agent Andie Henning responded with her partner and saw a male chained to a piling with a cryptic message scrawled on it. The case soon goes cold with few genuine leads. More than a decade later, Andie is married to defense lawyer Jack Swyteck and they are raising a daughter. The couple struggles to maintain normalcy in their marriage as their careers often pull them in opposite directions. A date night is scuttled when Andie is refused entrance at a private party due to her law enforcement role and Jack’s services are requested in representing an international pop star. A case involving defamation between warring spouses is soon transformed into questions of music piracy and organized crime. Things further go off the rails when a murder charge is brought against the dueling spouses that connect to a body found a decade earlier.

Goodbye Girl is the mesmerizing new legal thriller from author James Grippando. The plot functions effectively mixing suspenseful mystery and drama as Swyteck contends with his complex case and Henning searches for an enigmatic killer. Grippando has written a page-turning yarn that makes the reader yearn for more.
