Grippando, a former attorney, has the legal stuff down cold, and his writing style is impeccable...This would be a perfect time for legal-thriller fans who haven't yet checked out this series to join the crowd.-- "Booklist"
Grippando is equally skillful at ratcheting up the tension and plucking at your heartstrings.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Grippando keeps the narrative moving forward at a steady clip, expertly interweaving each character's point of view into the plot. He brings to life the fear undocumented immigrants face every day, as well as the complicated legalities they confront when arrested. Still, he never forgets that this is a thriller, and Jorge's ruthless momentum keeps the tension building to a heart-racing climax.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Grippando weaves immigration law and policy, domestic abuse, and other current social issues into a story that will quickly capture and keep the attention of readers who may be compelled to read this plot-driven legal thriller in one sitting.-- "Library Journal"

Mr. Grippando, through Jack Swyteck makes his opinion very clear in setting up ICE as being over zealous in their administration of their duties. His beloved abuela (grandmother) pushes him into the defense of an illegal alien woman and her daughter. Julia Rodriguez and her daughter Beatriz are illegals that have found a small place in society and are trying to make a life for themselves when Julia is sexually attacked by her boss at the coffee shop she works at. She defends herself but than finds herself detained by ICE after ananonymous tip, locked in prison and set up for deportation. Beatriz stays with an aunt that has completed immigration requirements earlier and is a U.S. citizen.
The novel is repleat with the sordid conditions experienced by Julia, the pressure by ICE on the judge supervising the trial that Swyteck requests to present her case for political asylum and the changes in her daughter when her seemingly happy life is broken up by her mother's problems. The opinions of Mr Grippando are open and clear. This does not change the fact that the book is the author's usual well done and engrossing story which can be read as another fine reading experience. The novel reaches an ending which seems to clearly be the beginnings of another book continuing the story. Again, whatever the reader's opinion is about ICE and it's described methods they will have the pleasure of another all nighter by an author that is at the height of his literary skill.
