When an environmental activist freezes to death in August in Miami, it can only be a case for Jake Lassiter.
Miami lawyer Jake Lassiter has a dangerous conflict of interest. He's sleeping with Gina Florio...and defending her mobster husband in court for the wrongful death of an environmental activist. The homicidal Nick Florio has hatched a scheme deep in the Florida Everglades that oozes corruption, blood, and money. One false move, and Jake will be gator bait.
Living by his own rules, the savvy Lassiter battles a world of deceit, perversity and mayhem to risk body and soul for truth, justice and the Lassiter Way.
