    A pretty good start for the first in this series For book number 1 published in 1990 and from what I see , the series is still going strong The MC is Jake Lassiter an ex second string line backer and now a lawyer in the Miami, Florida area He is a fun character and I absolutely loved him from the beginning The other characters are wonderfully quirky like Charlie Riggs, the former Medical Examiner, who spouts Latin and knows the most surprising things you just can t help but laugh every time he makes an appearance in this book A murder mystery with lots of humor is the best I can explain this book A very fast, fun read especially those who enjoy sum summer beach, pool reads A series that I will continue to read when I m in the mood for a fun, light, witty, lawyer type read

    I m always looking for good series to read, since I can read much faster than my favorite authors can write, even as a collective group D Don t remember how I found out about this one, but I enjoyed the first novel It s set in S Florida, where I grew up, and I always enjoy books when I can picture the setting from firsthand experience Lassiter was a flawed but sympathetic character I thought the romance was a little overblown like, who falls THAT much in love with someone they ve just met but other than that, a good start I ve already requested the next one in the series from the library.

    This is my second novel from this guy It is the second time I was impressed Really a good bunch of characters, a fun courtroom drama, and just the right amount of who done it I am currently reading the second Jake Lassiter thriller.

    Enjoyable courtroom drama with a slightly convoluted mystery, a very likeable protagonist and some very quirky, fun side characters loved the retired medical examiner , plenty of humor, excellent audio narration by Luke Daniels First book in a series of 12 so far 3.75 stars.

    An Awesome Novel of Courtroom Games and Crime Solving In this highly suspenseful novel, Jake Lassiter is again in court to defend Doctor Roger Stanton, Chief Orthopedic Physician Jake had been once a football player, an ex public defender, now an attorney waiting for an answer from the person on the stand It s a malpractice trial of Corrigan vs Stanton The man who died after the surgical procedure was Philip Corrigan, a very rich man The lawsuit was filed by the wife of Philip Corrigan a woman of strength to control men This is a very interesting novel which helps one understand the courtroom procedures, as well as the tactics lawyers must practice warily This novel moves quickly into twists and turns which engulf Jake into a new relationship with the daughter of the deceased man It s action packed and scary.read to the end Highly recommend.

    This is another banal crime fiction offering disguised as a legal thriller by having a lawyer as the protagonist The plot is simple Lawyer defends doctor in malpractice case Victim turns out to have been murdered The rest of the story has to do with the lawyer trying to catch the killer or killers, who are already known to anyone who has ever read a mystery story.The characters are pure cardboard The writing is infantile I skipped large numbers of paragraphs as I plowed through the last half of the book without losing track of anything The only saving graces are the descriptions of the courtroom scenes and a crazy ex Medical Examiner, who spouts Latin on almost any occasion and has an encyclopedic memory for almost everything No Paul Levine titles for me.

    Love this book and it kept my interest Mr Levine has created the character Jake Lassiter and each book in this series is about Jake, ex pro football star now lawyer and all the things Jake gets himself involved in The books keep me interested and I have found when reading I could picture the places described I loved reading the series from beginning to current I recommend this for those who like reading this type of book.

    Was a decent book with pretty good suspense but I had a hard time with mainly the love interest of the main character The book didn t link these two well enough to make them as much of a pair as the storyline tries to imply The ending really left me hanging and not in a good way When I realized that was really the last page I sat there wondering, what in the world
