“Jake Lassiter is the lawyer we all want on our side...and on the page.” – Lee Child “LASSITER is the courtroom drama of the year.” – Harlan Coben A Missing Woman... A Secret in Jake’s Past... And a Thirst for Revenge Eighteen years ago, Jake Lassiter crossed paths with a teenage runaway who disappeared into South Florida’s sex trade. Now, plagued by guilt over his failure to help her, and suspected of complicity in her fate, he retraces her steps and runs head-on into a conspiracy of silence by Miami’s rich and powerful. The evidence of deceit and corruption leads to a long-ago night of kinky sex, designer drugs – and a possible death. But before Lassiter can nail the truth, a gun goes off, a suspect falls dead, and the linebacker-turned-lawyer has a murder trial to defend. REVIEWS “Since Robert Parker is no longer with us, I’m nominating Levine for an award as best writer of dialogue in the grit-lit genre.” – San Jose Mercury News “A gripping legal thriller, story of self-discovery and a look at corruption set against an insider’s evocative view of South Florida. Levine’s energetic storytelling manages to make his novel serious, witty, and sardonic.” – Miami Herald “Engaging...a standout job.” Publishers Weekly “While it’s been 14 years since the last ‘Lassiter’ novel, Levine, the author of the excellent Solomon/Lord series, definitely hasn’t lost his touch.” – Lansing State Journal "One of the strongest voices in crime fiction." -- Lisa Scottoline “Paul Levine is one of South Florida’s great writers, and ‘Lassiter’ is his greatest creation.” – Dave Barry “One of the most adept entertainers in the legal thriller biz.” – Chauncey Mabe, Open Page “Few writers can deliver tales about sex and drugs in South Florida better than Levine.” –Booklist “The highest praise of all: I’m going to sit down and read it again, just to see how Levine pulls off the magic.” – Ridley Pearson

Review:

Praise of Paul Levine's "Illegal"

"Levine is one of the few thriller authors who can craft a plot filled with suspense while still making the reader smile at the characters' antics."--"Chicago Sun-Times"

"A compulsively readable yet character-driven thriller . . . a riveting read filled with action, pathos, and even humor."--"Booklist"

"Timely, tumultuous, and, in a word, terrific."--"The Providence Journal"

"Thought-provoking, action-packed."--"Sun-Sentinel"

Advanced Praise for "Lassiter"
"Lassiter is back after fourteen long years - and better than ever. Moving fast, cracking wise, butting heads,
he's the lawyer we all want on our side - and on the page."
--Lee Child
"Paul Levine is one of South Florida's great writers, and Lassiter is his greatest creation. It's funny, smart and compelling.
It's also so rich in authentic Miami detail that you can smell the cigar smoke."
--Dave Barry
"No cross-bred comparisons with other protagonists suffice to describe this larger than life character with his raw intelligence, street smarts, and a self-deprecating wit that makes you just love the guy. Lassiter combines edgy storytelling, tight plotting and Levine's trademark crackling dry humor--I really couldn't put the book down; it's a terrific, fast-paced read from beginning to end."
--Jacqueline Winspear
