Book Recommendation: The Informant by James Grippando


The Informant (1996) is a crime thriller featuring FBI Special Agent Victoria Santos and Miami Tribune reporter Mike Posten by The New York Times bestselling American author and lawyer James Grippando. I enjoyed this book and recommend it for your reading list. A friend gave us a stack of Grippando novels and I plan to read all of them.

Goodreads Review of The Informant

"When an informer chooses Miami Tribune crime reporter Michael Posten as his conduit, giving him information about murders that haven't yet taken place, investigators speculate on whether the killer and informer are the same person. As the newspaper continues to deposit larger sums into the killer's account, FBI agent Victoria Santos and the reluctant journalist join forces to prevent the next gruesome murder. But then dues stop and the murders continue... until a psychopath makes one mistake too many. This gripping, unpredictable story of revenge will not be soon forgotten."
