Summary
Eighteen years ago, Jake Lassiter crossed paths with a teenage runaway who disappeared into South Florida's sex trade. Now he retraces her steps and runs head on into a conspiracy of Miami's rich and powerful who would do anything to keep the past as dark as night and silent as the grave. In this tale of redemption and revenge. Jake Lassiter, second-string linebacker turned low-rent lawyer, is cynical about the law, but if you hire him, he will 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 eighteen years earlier. What does Lassiter know about Krista Larkin, the runaway teen turned porn actress? More than he is saying. Seeking to atone for his own past, Lassiter follows the cold trail of the missing Krista and butts head with the powerful men who also knew her: a former porn king turned philanthropist, a slick Cuban-born prosecutor who would love to be governor, 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 does not trust and a case he cannot win. Did Amy shoot the man who killed her sister? Or the wrong 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
