Intent to Kill (Mass Market Paperbound)
Ryan James's promising baseball career was derailed before it even got started when a hit-and-run driver killed his wife Chelsea, leaving Ryan alone to care for their beautiful little girl. Now, three years later, he's a popular sports radio host in Boston, still haunted by a tragic crime that was never solved. But on the anniversary of Chelsea's death, Ryan receives a chilling message from an anonymous tipster: "I know who did it."
The shocking revelation may have come from Chelsea's brother, Babes, a young man suffering from an autism-related disorder, and it sets Ryan on a twisted path toward a shattering truth. Suddenly what really happened that awful night threatens to irreparably alter the lives of Ryan and Babes, and dedicated prosecutor Emma Carlisle, if they can survive the wrath of the powerful . . . and the deadly.
About the Author
James Grippando is a New York Times bestselling author of suspense. Cash Landing is his twenty-third novel. James Grippando was a trial lawyer for twelve years before the publication of his first novel in 1994 (The Pardon), and he now serves as counsel to Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP. He lives in south Florida with his wife, three children, two cats, and a golden retriever named Max, who has no idea he's a dog.
“Grippando’s thrillers marry well-drawn characters and realistic action. . . . The story strongly fits into the family thriller genre, epitomized by Harlan Coben.”
“Intent to Kill is [Grippando’s] best. . . . It’s crisp and fresh and full of action from beginning to end.”
-The Globe and Mail
“In this stand-alone thriller . . . the well-constructed, suspenseful plot is layered with many ‘What?!’ and ‘Oh my God’ moments. With the reader well and truly hooked, all one can do is hang on until the final reveal.”
“An excellent thriller . . . Ryan James is a strong, sympathetic lead, and the supporting cast . . . is uniformly excellent. . . . This guy is really good.”
“Intent to Kill’s unique double play of baseball and the unpredictable Babes make Grippando’s newest thriller a hit for the bleachers.”
-Madison County Herald
“A fast-paced, nifty crime novel with many surprising plot twists.”
-Lansing Journal (MI)
“[A] tight, twisty thriller . . . Hums along like a sizzling fastball thrown straight and sure.”
“This book has it all: sports, crime, money and romance. . . . It’s a delight.”
-Charleston Post & Courier
