Welcome From James Grippando

My dad was a stripper. Okay, now I've got your attention. Actually, he was a printer for almost thirty years, and the technical term for his skill was —I kid you not— "stripper." My mother was a teacher and later a published author. With that combination, perhaps writing was in my genes.

I write thrillers, and 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of my debut legal thriller, The Pardon.  Black Horizon is the twenty-first in a string of bestsellers since then, and it’s the eleventh entry in the popular series featuring Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck. But Black Horizon isn't just for fans of Jack, his irreverent sidekick Theo Knight, and his unlikely love interest, FBI undercover agent Andie Henning.  No worries if you haven't read the other Swyteck novels. I write each one so that it stands on its own, and critics are saying, the series has never felt fresher.

I hope you'll have fun surfing through my website.  You can learn about me, send me an e mail, or contact me through Facebook. Thanks for visiting, and be sure to drop me a line. I'm grateful to all my readers, and I enjoy hearing from each one of you.

All best wishes,
