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.
