Publisher's Summary


No witness? No evidence? No body?

Big problem for new prosecutor Jake Lassiter.

Appointed to prosecute a high-profile murder case, Lassiter 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.

Lassiter's symptoms of the brain disease CTE are threatening to disable him. Even as Melissa Gold, his doctor and lover, performs experimental treatments, Lassiter could lose the case - and his life - in court.

NOTE: The Lassiter novels are all stand-alones and may be enjoyed in any order.

Critic Reviews

"Fascinating, fully developed characters and smart, well-paced dialogue keep the pages turning. Levine manipulates the expectations of the reader as skillfully as Jake manipulates the expectations of the jury" (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Any book with Jake Lassiter is a drop-everything, read-it-now for me - and this one has Solomon & Lord too. Bum Deal is fantastic." (Lee Child, number one best-selling author of the Jack Reacher series)

"The ending is perfect: a nudge in the ribs that doesn't sell out the novel's sinister edge. This is a triumph of mood and tone as well as plotting." (Booklist)

Bum Deal

I enjoyed this book in the series, but I kind of figured out early what happened to his wife. Good story line, but odd there was no mention of his Grandmother, and in the last book of Jake's series she is just gone with with all the older characters.

I would recommend this book.

Excellent narration.
