Intent to Kill

A book by James Grippando

< read all 2 reviews

Delightful story, but it arguably has too many details

  • May 28, 2010
Grippando tells the tale of an up-in-coming minor league baseball player, Ryan, who is assured that he will move into the major leagues, but quits playing and falls apart when his wife is killed by a hit and run driver. On the third anniversary of her death, he finds a letter at her grave saying, "It was no accident." The assistant prosecutor who has been investigating the case also receives a letter, "I know who did it." Ryan, the prosecutor, and others now wonder whether Ryan's wife was murdered and, if so, why and who did it? Also what caused the letter writer to wait three years before sending the letters? Additionally, is the letter writer the murderer? And, how can the police investigate the matter three years after Ryan's wife's death.
Grippando fills his book with interesting characters and has an unexpected, exciting, and satisfying ending. He writes well but some readers might think that he gives too many unnecessary details. The details are clever, but they arguably slow down the drama and somewhat stifle the suspense. However, even those readers who have this feeling will enjoy the book.
