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?

Critic reviews

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.

Flesh & Bones

Excellent Jake Lassiter novel. I would like to know why the author never continues the story from previous book, but good read anyway.

I would recommend this book.

Great Author and Best Narrator!

I love this series, especially on audio! Luke Daniels' voice is so nice to listen to, and he's so good good at doing different characters' voices, including Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino. Paul Levine's novels are so well written that I am sure I'd love reading them, but I can't get enough of Luke Daniels' voice. Now on to my next Paul Levine novel.

A totally different ending

A very good story and the reader does a excellent job with the performance. BUT the ending ! I read a lot of books "I have over 1000 books in my library " and I haven't had a ending like this one. left me with a look of astonishment.
