Most of the Lassiter novels I've enjoyed are lightweights -- not serious -- but this one was by far the worst! It reads like a bad Carl Hiassen book. I almost gave up when Lassiter dived into the Everglades dodging shotgun blasts that should have killed him, evaded the alligators swarming around him, and hitched a ride on a manatee that carried him several hours to safety, while surviving on rainwater and plants. Total credibility failure.
The only other caveat for those who might seriously consider reading this book is that there are several brutal killings described in gory detail.
than lava from Mt Etna. His Faux Grandmother wears white trash t-shirts and speaks like Dr Phil on a bender. It's over the top but all in good fun.
Jake's heartbreak, Gina, shows up as she does from time to time needing some TLC. She is married, for the third time, to Nick Florio a well to do business man whom anyone that isn't legally blind can see is a hood in expensive clothing.
Gina begs Jake to handle her husbands civil case for the accidental death of an adversary who got drunk at their home and was found dead in their wine cellar.
The story takes place in south Florida and drags you through every diner, dive and swamp. Jake is constantly getting himself into and out of deadly situations but as a former pro-football player who works out every day, he uses what he learned on the field to win his personal game.
If you're looking for a larger than life kind of hero, with film noir dialog, a floating sense of morals and a good heart...
You have found him. Read this book. You'll feel good when you finish and chuckle when you remember some of his lines!
Total lack of originality.
In its favor is the idea of environmental protection and preservation of the Everglades, including Indian rights. That's the best I can say.
Paul Levine works his magic once again with a lead character you've gotten to know so well and some of the old sidekicks that hang with him. If this seems to suggest that Mortal Sin is a familiar book, rest assured that the only things familiar are the primary and the secondary players. The stories are all new and exciting, but they're played out with a bunch of people you've come to know and whose presence you welcome.
This time, Jake's involved with a client in a civil case (which he wins, by the way). However, a serious side story is that Jake is, uh, involved with the client's wife. Apparently, Jake and the client's wife have had an on-again, off-again relationship for far longer than her husband has been a client. And, as we get into the book, we discover that she's had other side interests as well, which complicates the whole deal.
Meanwhile, Jake's client is now involved in a huge business deal located in the Florida Everglades and some of the characters he has business with are less than stellar folks. Parts of the plot involve defiling the pristine environment of the Everglades and Jake Lassiter finds himself involved in a lot more trouble than he started with in the civil case. And right up front of everything are Jake's relationship with Gina and whoever else she is tangled up with as the story goes on.
Just be ready for another great Paul Levine thriller starring Jake Lassiter. You always know that these books are beautifully crafted and the pages are turned quickly with terrific anticipation. Levine knows South Florida as well as anyone and his descriptions of Miami and the surrounding area are true and exact. Mixed with the suspense and dangerous turns are always a lot of laugh out loud situations and smartass remarks and answers by Jake Lassiter.
This has been an amazing series of books and fortunately for me, there are still a few left to read. I never get tired of them.
