9780062109903: Black Horizon (Jack Swyteck Novel)

Miami attorney Jack Swyteck finds himself in the middle of an international legal battle over a Cuban oil spill that sets him on a deadly mission

Three summers after the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, oil is again spewing into the ocean, this time from a drilling explosion in Cuban waters fifty miles off the Florida Keys. The slick is headed straight for the United States, but the Cubans refuse American offers to assist with the cleanup, and threaten to fire on U.S. vessels entering their waters.

Jack Swyteck is called away from his honeymoon to represent an American woman whose Cuban husband was killed on the rig. Jack finds himself in dangerous waters when he discovers that his incendiary case may be lethally connected to his new wife Andie's undercover assignment for the FBI . . . and that the looming environmental catastrophe may have been no "accident" at all.

Review:

“Fantastic…Finely crafted dialogue and a realistic yet nuanced hero make this thriller a standout.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on BLACK HORIZON)

“With a story that’s ripped from the recent headlines (remember the 2010 BP oil spill?), this is a solid legal thriller that should appeal to the author’s fans.” (Booklist on BLACK HORIZON)

“James Grippando is a master of the legal thriller.” (Robert K. Massie, New York Times bestselling author)

A briskly paced thriller…The complex plot points combined with the breezy narrative--not to mention the Florida Keys setting--make for a solid beach read that will no doubt leave longtime fans looking forward adventures of Jack Swyteck.” ( Houston Chronicle on Black Horizon)

From the Back Cover:

Miami attorney Jack Swyteck finds himself in the middle of an international legal battle over a Cuban oil spill that sets him on a deadly mission.

Three summers after the Deepwater Horizon environmental catastrophe, oil is spewing into the ocean again, this time from a drilling explosion in Cuban waters just fifty miles from the Florida Keys. The slick is headed straight for the United States, but the Cubans refuse American offers to assist with the cleanup, and threaten to fire on "hostile" U.S. vessels entering their waters. Backstopping the Cubans is the powerful consortium that owned and operated the rig, and is tied to the Chinese, Russian, and Venezuelan governments, who stonewall all inquiries and relief efforts.

Jack and his new wife, Andie Henning, an undercover agent for the FBI, are honeymooning in the Keys when Andie is called away on an assignment shrouded in secrecy. Jack, too, is soon back at work, representing an American woman whose Cuban husband was killed in the rig explosion. Though the spill occurred in foreign waters, Jack draws on all his legal know-how to file a wrongful death suit in a U.S. court and hopefully bring the young widow a semblance of closure.

Jack's pursuit of the unimaginably complicated international case plunges him into a dangerous world filled with treacherous twists that lead him--and Andie--to the same shocking realization . . . that the looming environmental disaster may have been no "accident" at all.
