Product Description

Product Description


"One part John Grisham, two parts Carl Hiaasen." - Tulsa World

"A thriller as fast as the wind." - Tampa Tribune

Jake Lassiter chases a beautiful woman and stolen bonds from Miami to Maui,
where in an explosive finale, he learns lessons never taught on the football field or in the courtroom.  If you enjoy John Grisham, Harlan Coben, Carl Hiaasen, and James Patterson, you'll love "Riptide" from Paul Levine, winner of the John D. MacDonald fiction award.  Levine has also been nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, and James Thurber prizes. A former trial lawyer, he wrote more than 20 episodes of the CBS military drama "JAG."

TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD: Jake begins to believe that his surgeon client is innocent of malpractice...but guilty of murder.

NIGHT VISION: Someone is murdering women on an Internet sex chat site, and Jake becomes a special prosecutor to hunt down the serial killer.

FALSE DAWN: After his client confesses to a murder he didn't commit, Jake follows a bloody trail from Miami to Havana to discover the truth.

MORTAL SIN: Talk about conflicts of interest. Jake is sleeping with Gina Florio and defending her mob-connected husband in court.

FOOL ME TWICE: To clear his name in a murder investigation, Jake follows a trail of evidence that leads from Miami to buried treasure in the abandoned silver mines of Aspen, Colorado.

FLESH AND BONES: Jake falls for his beautiful client even though he doubts her story. She claims to have recovered "repressed memories" of abuse...just before gunning down her father.

4.0 out of 5 stars RIPTIDE July 6 2014

This is the first Jake Lassiter book l have read. He is an interesting character, but did seem a little shallow in his love interest. I will read more to see if he learns from his past. The insight into Hawaii was great, a lot of good info.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the price Nov. 26 2011

Obviously a talented writer with an excellent well developed main character in Jake Lassiter. The plot becomes unbelievable at times with Jake going to such extremes to retrieve his client's bonds. Also, Jake's romantic interest in the female villan goes too far. I really wanted to like Jake, but I couldn't believe such a strong character could be so naive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riptide is a good title. Aug. 22 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is for sail board enthusiasts along with Paul's LeVine exciting, humorous, and off the wall plots. There is history of Hawaii, mixed in with sex, along with exciting car chases and action packed fights. There are tender parts and surprises mixed through out the book with twists you would never expect. It will keep you up late looking for the answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars another good one Jan. 3 2014

Each book by Mr Levine I find he's lost another love. Hopefully this will not repeat endlessly. I like this novel very much as I have the previous. It is a tad annoying to come across so many e book translation errors in this particular version. Haven't come across these tech "typos" of which there are many in past books.

All the "Jake Lassiter" books grab you and make you laugh at the same time see the world through a somewhat attorney's eyes. Most of Paul Levine's books have that can't put the book down base to them. I don't know what I'll do when I've run through his list of titles.....
