<p> Jack Swyteck isn't looking for a new client, at least not one who is homeless. But from the moment he's called to defend the man, who goes by the name Falcon, something is amiss. For one thing, Falcon comes up with the $10,000 bail—in cash. Then the body of a brutally murdered woman is found in the trunk of the abandoned car that he is living in. </p> <p> On the run, Falcon takes Jack's best friend, Theo, hostage. But what Jack doesn't know is that Falcon has a much bigger agenda—and that people behind the scenes will stop at nothing to keep their dangerous secrets. Thus unfolds a riveting, lightning-paced story, as only James Grippando can tell it. </p>

4.5 stars! Talk about a twisty-turny read!! I was definitely surprised by the end. It was different, having a book where Jack wasn't in the courtroom and, although I missed that part, the rest was so good that it was actually okay with me. This was one of my favorite Jack Swyteck novels!!

Have been reading Grippando's Jack Swytek series in order. This is the best I have read so far in this enjoyable series. Gripping and awfully hard to put down.

I didn't think Grippando's stories could get any worse than Hear No Evil. Sadly, I was let down.

This book takes cliches to a lower level. Swytek, a defense lawyer, is suddenly hurled into the seat of a hostage negotiator, while people behind the scenes try to prevent anyone from coming out alive.

Over the top characterizations, lack of thrills makes this a poor summer read.
