Author’s Synopsis

When Jake Patrick took a summer internship at his estranged father’s corporation, he anticipated some much-needed extra cash and a couple of free meals from his guilty dad. He would never have guessed that he’d find himself in the center of an international scandal involving a U.S. senator, conspiracy, backroom politics, and murder. Or that his own life would hang in the balance. Or that he’d find help – and much more than that – from a collection of memorable characters operating on all sides of the law. Jake’s summer has turned into the most eventful one of his life. Now he just needs to survive it.

From the sweatshops of Saipan to the most powerful offices in Washington, SWEAT rockets through a story of crime and consequences with lightning pacing, a twisting plot, an unforgettable cast of characters, and wry humor. It is another nonstop thriller from one of the most exciting new voices in suspense fiction.

Hott Review

What I liked: I loved that, even though this is not a genre I typically read, as soon as I began to read the book pulled me right into it’s depths. Even when I wasn’t reading I was wondering what was going to happen. I also, loved how Gilleo was able to make me completely detest as character but still want to know exactly what happened.
What I didn’t like: Honestly, there were a LOT of characters and at times I did have some trouble keeping everyone straight.
