AN IMPOSSIBLE CASE? CALL JAKE LASSITER
No witness? No evidence? No body?
Big problem for new prosecutor Jake Lassiter
Appointed to prosecute a high-profile murder case, the linebacker-turned-lawyer vows to take down a prominent surgeon accused of killing his wife. Problem is...there's not a scrap of forensic evidence, and the defense lawyers are the crafty team of Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord.
Not only that, Lassiter's symptoms of CTE are threatening to cut short his career and disable him. Melissa Gold, his doctor and lover, performs experimental treatments intended to halt the advance of the incurable brain disease.
Drained of his mental edge just when he needs it most, Lassiter faces the possibility of losing the case--and his life--in court.
"BUM DEAL is the real deal. Jake Lassiter at his smart-talking, fast-thinking best. A funny, compelling and canny courtroom thriller." --Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author
