Miami lawyer Jack Swyteck defends a homeless man named Falcon who takes hostages at a hotel after being released from jail. Falcon has among his hostages, Theo Knight, a man who Swyteck once pulled off death row and who became his best friend. He also wants to talk to Alicia Mendoza, a police officer who’s dating the blind hostage negotiatior and happens to be the mayor’s daughter. What Jack doesn’t know is that Falcon has a deeper agenda and is panicked enough to do anything to clear his name.
I did enjoy this book. It was written very well but was a little convoluted plot wise. I give it B+!
B+! – (89-94%)
