"False Dawn is mystery writing at its very, very best." - Larry King, USA Today.
Jake Lassiter may not know much about art, but what he knows can get him killed. Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter has plenty of clients who lie, but usually they deny their guilt. When Francisco Crespo readily admits killing a fellow warehouse worker with a forklift, Jake is suspicious and won't take guilty for an answer. Determined to find the truth, Jake follows a trail of priceless Faberge eggs to an international theft ring involving the CIA, Fidel Castro, and the new Russian Commonwealth. Through twisted revelations, deadly trouble crosses, and bizarre murders, Jake follows a bloody trail from Miami to Havana and back home-where he discovers he can trust no one, and nothing is as it seems.

Now, I don't know how possible the story line can be since I kow for a fact that some of the items used in the story are absolutelyno possible. And, I do get a little bored with his prior injuries hurting his performance.
But, and a big but, I still like Levie's writing.
This book was very long and some of the description did not seem to help the advancement of the story that much, almost like filler. The story however was very involved with the international crime players from Russia and Cuba, and although Jake is savvy, they end up fooling him with their duplicity. The sense of acceptance of destiny, as shown through the characters of Crespo and Soto, contrasted with the ego and narcissism of Yagamata and Foley. Just when you think it is all spinning out of control, the forces behind the scenes work it all out and gives the reader a sense of good over evil, right versus wrong and the comfort of someone knowing what is going on and preserving that faith.
Then there's references by comparing characters' traits with names I've never heard of (presumably real people?).
Plus: there seems to be an unnecessary detailed description of every building and street in Florida !!??!!
So - apart from being drawn out way too much - plus convoluted details of different nation's politics - there's a reasonable story buried in there - somewhere.
