Publisher's Summary

Jake Lassiter is crazy about the new woman in his life...

His law practice is booming...

His delinquent nephew is getting A's in school.

Then Jake is charged with murder.

It's supposed to be a romantic weekend at the Fontainebleau for Jake and Pamela Baylins. Then they quarrel, and Pamela - who's Jake's banker as well as lover - accuses him of stealing from clients. Hours later, she's found strangled. With all the evidence pointing to Jake, it will take an explosive murder trial to reveal the truth.

"So entertaining and so deftly plotted that you will want to read more of Lassiter's adventures even before you are through." (Bookreporter.com)

Gritty and Intense.. !!

This is a very good book with a great story. It's a fast read, and the narration and story sweep you along. I was captivated by the story immediately. There are some common stereotypes of a crime mystery, which makes it a little predictable at times. However, it is a fun read that is well worth the time.

Jake is charged with nurder!

The complete 12 book Jake Lassiter series is now available in audio with 10 of the 12 being released this year. The series novels are light and fun legal thrillers with weird but likeable characters. These are the types of novels that in the first half of the 20th century would have been serialized in magazines; the novels are interesting and often fascinating, but are not either memorable or candidates for a second reading/listening. Luke Daniels narrates 11 of the 12 books. His voice and style are perfect for the wise-cracking Jake Lassiter.
