9780062295392: Cane and Abe

A spellbinding novel of suspense from New York Times bestselling author James Grippando, in which Miami’s top prosecutor becomes a prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance, which may have a chilling connection to the woman he can’t forget.

Unbelievable was the word for her. Samantha Vine was unbelievably beautiful. It was unbelievable that she’d married me. Even more unbelievable that she was gone . . .

Samantha died too soon. Abe Beckham’s new wife has helped him through the loss, but some say it was a step back to marry Angelina, a love from Abe’s past. Abe doesn’t want to hear it, and through the ups and downs, he’s even managed to remain a star prosecutor at the Miami State Attorney’s Office.

Then everything goes wrong.  A woman’s body is discovered dumped in the Everglades, and Abe is called upon to monitor the investigation. The FBI is tracking a killer in South Florida they call “Cutter” because his brutal methods harken back to Florida’s dark past, when machete-wielding men cut sugarcane by hand in the blazing sun.

But when the feds discover that Abe had a brief encounter with the victim after Samantha’s death, and when Angelina goes missing, the respected attorney finds himself under fire. Suspicion surrounds him. His closest friends, family, professional colleagues, and the media no longer trust his motives. Was Angelina right? Was their marriage not what they’d hoped for because he loved Samantha too much? Or was there another woman . . . and a husband with a dark side who simply wanted his new wife gone?

Review:

“Intriguing … Grippando has become a master at taking “ripped from the headlines” events, in this case the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill, and turning them into involving thrillers that, somehow, do not succumb to sensationalism. Grippando achieves this by continuing to focus on characters, especially showing new sides of Jack. Crisp dialogue and an insider’s view of Florida elevate “Black Horizon,” as do the evocative scenes set in Cuba.” (Nelson DeMille)

“Grippando is a skilled writer, and he works enough variations on the familiar theme to keep us guessing. . . . Recommend this one to fans of Joseph Finder’s Paranoia, Company Man, or Power Play.” (Booklist, on Money to Burn)

“Great….Grippando’s examination of corporate media and the power of the court of public opinion elevate “Blood Money.” ( Huffington Post)

“Grippando has been at the top of the legal-thriller ladder for some time, and ‘Blood Money’ will enhance his reputation and readership.” ( U.S. News & World Report)

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

“Black Horizon is timely, relentlessly paced and a thrill ride of the first order.” ( BookPage)

“This gripping, unputdownable book has everything you crave in a crime novel: a complicated but winning protagonist, a puzzling murder and the kind of ending that just plain wallops you.” (Kate White, New York Times bestselling author on Cane and Abe)

From the Back Cover:

When a woman's body is discovered dumped in the Everglades, Abe is called upon to monitor the investigation.

Was his marriage not what he'd hoped for because he loved Samantha too much? Or was there another woman . . . and a husband with a dark side who wanted his new wife gone?
