SPELLBINDING LEGAL THRILLER FROM EDGAR NOMINEE PAUL LEVINE"I was sitting at the end of the bar sipping single-malt Scotch when I spotted the tall blond woman with the large green eyes and the small gray gun."
The next thing Jake Lassiter knows, the woman pumps three bullets into the man on the next bar stool. Lassiter, the linebacker-turned-lawyer, has a new client. She's a stunning South Beach model; the dead man is her wealthy father; and the murder case is a slam dunk for the prosecution. Or is it?
"I'm a huge fan of John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson, and now I'm able to add Paul Levine to that list. I honestly couldn't put the book down." - Amazon 5-star review
