This makes Jonathan Davis my new favorite narrator, not because the story is so good (I give that a 3+), but because Davis slips so effortlessly in and out of the various Miami characters in this story, after he had had me in stitches with his rendition of Texas characters in "Guilt Trip." This is the first Jack Swytek story I've found entertaining all the way through. It ended up in a much different place than I expected at the beginning, so I appreciate Grippando for that. Even got me to listen through some chapters of a hostage situation, though I usually try to avoid the misery of most kidnap and/or hostage stories. The author broke up the hostage part well with background info, but it might not have kept my interest so well without Davis's skillful, yet simultaneously relaxed style of narration.

When Darkness Falls is a wonderful suspense mystery. It's the 3rd (or 4th) book in the series, depending on if you count book .5 which was written later as #1. Anyway , again the publisher's summary sets up the book so well that to add to that part of the description would only spoil it for others.
What the summary leaves out is that this story has it's roots set in the "Dirty War" in Argentina that took place in the '70s and early '80s when the Argentinian government became a military state that used terrorism to persecute political dissidents and socialist or anyone thought to be either. Most of these people (which numbered in the thousands) just disappeared.
Again Jonathan Davis does an excellent job narrating.
