Publisher's Summary

"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 barstool. 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?

Jake is Great

I really enjoy this series. It is always a pleasure to listen to Luke Daniels!! Also great to laugh and be enthralled with Jake's courtroom drama. Really good read.

Great whodunit

Jake Lassiter as lawyer and rescuer of a damsel in distress makes for an exciting read. The author's use of Jake's "asides" add humor to a convoluted plot. Looking forward to reading more in the series.

Excellent legal thriller with great narration!

The publisher's summary for Flesh & Bones may be the best I have ever read; I would not add or take away a word! This novel is the 7th in Paul Levine's excellent Jake Lassiter legal thriller series. It is a fun listen with a seemingly very unlikely outcome. I recommend this series.

a good read

this was a really good read. It's a really good character with lots of smart mouth comments. but the store itself was excellent and very mysterious. I think it's one of his best books that he's written.

Sterotypical

There wasn't anything about this story that grabbed me. For starters the main character is an ex Miami Dolphin defensive player. A big guy who is now a lawyer. The author plays on the stereotype of big dumb football players and this character is a complete idiot. How he passed the bar exam and became a lawyer isn't really explained. Not all football players are idiots.

A young woman kills her father right in front of the lawyer. He watches her take out a gun and shoot the guy than picks up her case. Really? That was the first thing that irritated me. Then he sleeps with his client, second irritation and so on. The book is filled with them. The writing itself isn't bad but the story is. I'm imagining the other six books follow this same pattern. I won't be listening to them to find out.

It may be for you but wasn't for me!
