While "The Pardon"'s storyline and quick reading are similar to most of Grisham's work, it's the delivery of the material that reminded me not of Grisham, but of the book "Needful Things" by Stephen King. James Patterson was quoted as saying that he read this book, all pages, in one sitting; it took me three. All-in-all, I am impressed with this author and I'm looking forward to reading his next.

There are a lot of comparisons to John Grisham.

However, based on Goodreads reviews, a lot of Grisham fans were not too impressed by this novel. I like how The Pardon was not black and white. I liked the main character, Ja I enjoyed this novel more than I thought I would! I liked the main character, Jack, and his sense of humour.

He may not be the most likeable character, but I enjoyed reading about his not so great relationship with his girlfriend and his almost non relationship with his father. In a way, I also enjoyed the mind games that the murderer created and how he set things up. I liked getting a glimpse into his mind and seeing why he did the things that he did.

I knocked it down a star because it seemed to wrap up a bit too nicely and too conveniently. I was hoping for a bit more detective work by Jack to identity the mad man. Apr 11, Cindy rated it really liked it. Excellent plot and characterizations. Like series. Well narrated and recommended. Aug 31, Pat rated it really liked it. This is the first James Grippando book I have read and - wow, how gripping. And this is the author's first book! A young lawyer gets caught in a deadly game with an unknown enemy. As he tries to extricate himself his every move seems to just tighten the noose around his neck.

More people are sucked into this vortex until it seems there is no escape.

The pacing is relentless. I read it in a day.

  • The Pardon (Jack Swyteck Series #1) by James Grippando, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®.

An innocent man is executed, and a guilty man is set free. Grippando gets things off to a fast start. Jack Swytek is estranged from his father, now the governor, who had been elected on a law-and-order platform, promising to expedite executions. Barely two hours before the electrocution of Fernandez, Jack is visited by a man in a ski mask who, insisting on lawyer-client confidentiality, shows him proof that Fernandez is innocent because he, himself, is the killer.

Then Goss is killed and the governor and Jack are being setup for his murder. Usually, in a case like this, the premise is undermined by illogical actions of the characters. The best legal dramas have great courtroom scenes. Unfortunately, the courtroom scenes were but a small portion of the book. The plot is ingenious and tricky, although how the killer manages to be in some of those places had me buffaloed. And I knocked off a star for a ludicrous ending. I had hoped for something much more subtle and intelligent.

Fantastic and attention holding.

The Pardon

A wonderful start to for this series. I mist definitely will be continuing on. Fast paste from the first page. Jul 19, Peggy rated it liked it. Jack Swyteck is a lawyer working for an innocence group. The problem is he is also the estranged son of the tough-on-crime governor of Florida. Governor Harry Swyteck denies the plea and the man is electrocuted. Immediately after these two miscarriages of justice, man begins stalking and threatening Jack and simultaneously blackmailing and threatening his father.

This mystery man frames Jack for a murder and now Jack is on trial for his life. Eventually father and son must come together to fight this maniac who claims that both the governor and Jack are guilty of the murder of the executed man and now they must pay. This is a good start for the Jack Swyteck series. So I actually listened to this one for a book club. I didn't see that in the description at all! So I did try and scan through some of the book to see if I missed anything. The stuff that I did read didn't seem all that significant.

Convos were cut short by a TON and some completely gone but I still got the gist of it all. I'm not su So I actually listened to this one for a book club. I'm not sure what future books entail but the epilogue in the book wasn't part of the audio. In all, I liked the story and the characters so I will probably continue with the series.

I would recommend this to people who like reading thrillers starring lawyers. Grisham, Patterson, Scottoline, etc. View all 8 comments. Jun 02, Robin Thomsen rated it it was amazing. Found myself another author to read. Thoroughly engrossing. Kept me guessing. Feb 24, Hapzydeco rated it liked it. This first book in the series establishes the background of the characters. While several of the twists and turns may seem unbeliveable, the courtroom drama plus the ending should keep a reader fully engrossed. Aug 25, Kelly rated it really liked it. I have a four month old infant who still gets up in the middle of the night to eat.

I have recently read a few books that would almost instantly put me back to sleep. This one however kept my attention even at 4 AM! I loved the Jack and Harry conflict throughout this book. It is sad to think that a father and son would have such a poor relationship for so long and over such a "silly" thing. However, it really made the story that much more gripping when the "bad guy" played on the damaged relation I have a four month old infant who still gets up in the middle of the night to eat.

However, it really made the story that much more gripping when the "bad guy" played on the damaged relationship. I liked it. It kept the characters more realistic and impulsive because all of love triangles make fore interesting stories. OK, maybe not all but this one did. The "killer" was ruthless! I loved that he was so cold and heartless.

The author kept his identity a mystery until the very end. I was so glad he ended up not being any of the characters I liked because I would have cried. The ending had a little twist at the end that I found a little cheesy. It was just a little too far fetched for me to believe. Still a great book. Published on. Flowing text, Original pages.
