“Lassiter is back after 14 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
Lassiter is back!A Missing Woman, a Secret in Jake’s Past, and the Thirst for Revenge
Jake Lassiter, second-string linebacker turned low-rent lawyer, is cynical about the law, but if you hire him, he’ll take a punch for you...and maybe a swing at the prosecutor, too.
Amy Larkin–beautiful, angry and mysterious–accuses Lassiter of involvement in the disappearance of her sister 18 years earlier. What does Lassiter know about Krista Larkin, the runaway teen turned porn actress? More than he’s saying.
Seeking to atone for his own past, Lassiter follows the cold trail of the missing Krista and butts heads with the powerful men who also knew her: a former porn king turned philanthropist, a slick Cuban-born prosecutor, and an aging mobster who once worked for the infamous Meyer Lansky.
The evidence leads to a long-ago night of kinky sex, designer drugs...and possible murder. But before Lassiter can nail the truth, a gun goes off, a suspect falls dead, and Amy is charged with murder.
The state has an eyewitness and a slam-dunk case. Lassiter has a client he doesn’t trust and a case he can’t win. Did Amy shoot the man? And what really happened to Krista? The answers, buried under years of deceit and corruption, are revealed in an explosive courtroom finale, proving that rough justice is better than no justice at all.
