SPELLBINDING LEGAL THRILLER FROM EDGAR NOMINEE PAUL LEVINE "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? WHAT'S THE VERDICT ON FLESH & BONES? "Lassiter is smart, tough, funny, and very human...one of the most entertaining series characters in contemporary crime fiction." - Booklist "The author keeps the suspense high with innovative twists...and touches of humor that spice up the courtroom scenes." - Chicago Tribune "This guy is seriously funny. I like a certain kind of humor and Paul has it Once you go Paul Levine, you don't go back." - Amazon 5-star review "The most dangerous liaison since Sam Spade and Brigid O'Shaughnessy tangoed in 'The Maltese Falcon.'"- Charlotte News & Observer "Not only has Jake Lassiter inherited the mantle of Travis McGee, Paul Levine has joined Scott Turow and John Grisham as the best legal thriller authors working today." - Amazon 5-star review
