Jake Lassiter is not your typical hero...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I thought this was a very interesting book in that the plot changes about 1/2 way through the book. It starts out as a medical malpractice and then changes. You have Jake the retired athlete with a sports injury turned lawyer, a daughter accusing her father's second wife of conspiring with his doctor/her sometimes lover to murder him, in the meantime there is a back up plan the good doctor is unaware of. Oh what a tangled web... If I say anything else you won't have to read the book.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

He just did a really good job. He gets all the right inflections for the different characters.

Any additional comments?

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book, it's a very good courtroom thriller without too much time in the courtroom!

First novel in the 12 book Jake Lassiter series,..

...but the 4th I have listened to. I have purchased three others. This is an outstanding novel about a civil suit which Lassiter wins for the doctor. It is followed by a murder trial with the same doctor charged.

For those not familiar with the Jake Lassiter series, Jake is a criminal defense lawyer in Miami. He is a former star college football player who played briefly as a pro for the Miami Dolphins before he realized he was not good enough, so he went to law school. With some exceptions the series tends to lighter and more fun than most legal thrillers. Luke Daniels narrates all seven audio novels that have been released except Books 8 and 11. .
