Good legal thriller short story

Although this short story is listed as novel 9 in the Jake Lassiter series, it is really a series prequel. It takes place chronologically prior to book 1 in the series when Jack is just setting off on his own legal practice. As usual Luke Daniels does a great job of narration.

Loved this Prequel

What did you love best about Last Chance Lassiter?

For Jake Lassitter fans this prequel made a lot of sense and explains the beginnings of why he despises big law firms. It also explains the beginnings of his code of conduct for life. The story itself was believable (for a Jake Lassiter story, that is; I don't know many lawyers who would prod a would-be client into hitting them with a baseball bat), simple and easy to listen in one sitting. I only gave it four stars because I reserve the fifth star for books that will be unforgettable many years from now. I liked this book but I'm not sure I'll remember the details several years from now.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Chance Lassiter?

I liked the dialogue with the psychiatrist when she is evaluating him for anger management issues and she keeps on provoking him by calling him Wrong Way instead of his name. He doesn't bite but when she asks him if it makes him angry when she calls him Wrong Way he calls the whole evaluation bull shit and wants to leave. She warns him that if he leaves she will have to tell the Judge Buxtrom that that he is having difficulty controlling his anger. He yells back that he is not angry, G-d Dam it!


Which scene was your favorite?

I loved when he showed up in his old law office to negotiate with Lyle Krippendorf and Silky, Krippendorf's client, in Miami Dolphin sweat pants and a T shirt that said: A friend helps you move...A real friend helps you move a body;. Typical Lassiter humor. A second instance is the scene in the Bar Arbitration Hearing. It exemplified in a cartoonish way the worst of the system, when all in the system already have a preconceived notion of what happened regardless of the facts. I liked it, in a perverse way.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Easily did listen in one sitting.


Any additional comments?

I recommend this book highly to all Jake Lassiter fans.
