Sintesi dell'editore

Last seen in 1997's Flesh & Bones, Jake Lassiter is a hero unlike any other in the courtroom. Booklist called him "one of the most entertaining series characters in contemporary crime fiction." The former Miami Dolphin is still swimming with sharks in his latest, boldest novel of suspense yet.

Amy Larkin is in town, looking for her sister Krista, who vanished without a trace almost two decades earlier. She seeks out Lassiter because he's the last person to have seen her alive. Lassiter volunteers to investigate, and his search for Krista's fate will take him into the underworld of Miami's pornography industry, into the dangerous lives of his friends, and, of course, into the courtroom, where Lassiter's bareknuckle style makes him a formidable opponent.

I used to like Levine, but this is lame

When Paul Levine first began gaining steam as a Miami legal thriller writer, I was taken with his books. That was about 15 years ago; and I wondered what happened to him. I even went to a book signing in Tampa and spoke with him. He really seemed the next Grisham. He seemed to vanish for years, then I was excited to see a new book on Audible. First of all, he was a Jewish Miami attorney; and having his protagonist be a caricature of a Miami redneck (if there is such a thing), is nothing short of pathetic. Nothing sounds right or feels right about the rather one-dimensional Lassiter, living with his granny who eats roadkill-type meals. Lassiter is a former jock with a jock mentality; but not in a funny or good way. Not even in a convincing way. As an attorney, he lamely attempts to portray himself as a courtroom bad boy; but, again, only sounds lame and self-centered. The plot is convoluted and thin, at best; the characters are stereotypical weirdos, and as a whole, they make up a bad 3rd grade play. The narrator does a passable job, but he seems to shift in and out of redneck southern twang at odd moments. Very sad, as Levine's first works were very entertaining. I still have some of them in hard cover.This is NOT worth a credit.

Terrible narrator

Narrator so wrong for Jake and so bad at voices I couldn’t listen past the first chapter I have listened and enjoyed many Jake Lassiter books but this narrator ruined the telling of the story

Bad language

The language was reallly bad and the sexual content very disturbing. I stopped reading but picked it up again because the reviews were ok. I'm sorry that I selected it and would not recommend it.

Barely worthwhile

Lassiter is the 4th Paul Levine audio book I have listened to. The other earned 4 stars. Lassiter is not that good.

Narrator detracts. Worst Lassiter book so far.

I’ve listened to 3 or 4 books in Paul Levine’s Lassiter series. I grew up in Miami so I enjoy all the local references. Up until I listened to this one I was thoroughly enjoying the series. The narrator of this one almost ruined it for me. The story itself was okay but as the 8th book in the series it didn’t really seem to follow the same path as those before it, leaving out characters, changing character evolution and not painting even Lassiter himself as the flawed but imminently likable ex-jock. Worst of the ones I’ve read so far. I may avoid any with this narrator (although in fairness to him it could be the direction he was given).

i just cant

im not sure why the narrator has been changed for this book, but after having listened to all of the previous books narrated by Luke Daniels, i just can’t listen to this. i can’t even get thru the first chapter. im moving on to the next book and i’ll just read this one later. to me, Luke Daniels IS Jake Lassiter, as it should be. idk what happened here Mr Levine, but im sorry to say i’m not impressed

Stupid ending...

Stupid ending only a vampire shark would enjoy. It's funny how lawyers are always more concerned with other vampire shark brethren than normal people. Apparently, even when they create fiction this is still true. Shakespeare is proven right again.

Disappointed

Fell in love with this writer with Solomon and Lord. But this books ONLY good chapter is the last one. Waste of my money. Paul could have written a better storyline. I guess this was one of those books he created overnight.

Lassiter became Joe Pesci…

Having listened to the previous 5 of 7, as 2 books didn’t offer an Audible version, I enjoyed the reader, and thought he nailed the characters. Why in the world would you switch narrators mid-series?? And the difference in their dialects couldn't be any further distracting. Also, I know they sell Escalades “EscaLAIDS” in Jersey, so why in the he** doesn’t the narrator know the correct pronunciation?? He must say EscaLOD 50 times, and I cringed each time. And, going through papers, a glovebox, etc, is referred to as RIFLING, pro just like the weapon, as opposed to riffling, like sniffling… It makes the book not worth listening to, and because I listen when I’m driving, doing yard work, getting ready in the morning, etc, actually reading the book is not my preferred medium. And I’m not sure I can hear Jake explain his case of mistaken identity, his blunder resulting in a safety for the other team, et al, any more. I’d think it’s a fair assumption that anyone reading #8 in a series would’ve previously read 1-7, or at least a few earlier books, so exhaustively repeating the same stories is unnecessary and annoying to a series reader. I’ll sto here…
