Once again Paul Levine proves why he is one of my favorite authors! If you haven't read either his Solomon vs Lord or Jake Lassiter series, you owe it to yourself to start reading one ASAP!
#2 in the Paul Lassiter series. Twists and Turns galore in this second outing of ex-linebacker turned maverick Miami trial lawyer. Along with his buddy, retired Miami, Fl coroner Dr. Charlie Riggs, they stumble into a bewildering maze of computerized sex, lies, corruption and murder. You gotta LOVE south Florida stories!
This is the 1st book I read that Paul wrote which instantly transformed him into ne of my favorite authors! I truly enjoy the Jake Lassiter character and the way Paul brings the settings to life! I also love how he always works a reference to Penn State and/or Joe Paterno into his Lassiter story lines.
Levine, Paul - 2nd in Jake Lassiter series

Ex-pro football player and maverick lawyer Jake Lassiter stalks a psychopathic killer who's terrorizing Miami.

Well written and suspenseful. An enjoyable read.
I am re-reading this series on Kindle. Another fun courtroom drama, with Florida scenery and interesting character revelations and plot turns. Fun reading.

Night Vision is the second book in Paul Levine’s Jake Lassiter series, although it is the fourth one I have read (the others being "To Speak for the Dead", "RipTide" and "Mortal Sin"). For me, this one is the best so far. Night Vision is the fourth book in Paul Levine’s Jake Lassiter series I have read and so far, for me, it is the best.

The plot centres round an internet sex chat room, in which various users end up dead. Due to a conflict of interest, the attorney general appoints Jake as a spe
Love this book and it kept my interest. Mr. Levine has created the character Jake Lassiter and each book in this series is about Jake, ex-pro football star now lawyer and all the things Jake gets himself involved in. The books keep me interested and I have found when reading I could picture the places described. I loved reading the series from beginning to current. I recommend this for those who like reading this type of book.

Over the top.

I am a Paul Levine fan. This book was not up to his standards. Way too much, hit first and ask questions later, crazy scenes. The ending had a couple of nice twists, but the whole storyline required a substantial suspension of disbelief. Looking forward to the next Lassiter adventure, anticipating a return to the quality of his early work.
This was the first book I have read from this author. It was a Kindle freebie, and well worth a read.

I can't claim I guessed the murder mystery, although I had considered most of the pieces along the way, not putting them together in that particular order.

Some of my early criticisms about the characters were answered by the resolution, but still I feel that certain scenes didn't work, such as the ones where Lassiter got into totally pointless fights with orderlies in a mental hospital and othe

Psychologist, politics and murder.

Confusing in parts, long long psychological analyses, poetry. Trial of a psychopath but goes of the subject. London trip to understand Jack the ripper, didn't made any sense to me. Good, funny lawyer jokes, last few chapters was good.
I found I was pushing myself to get through this book.
Glad I have discovered these books - these are a great summertime read and on Kindle, they are $2.99! Well put together and great twisty plot (ok, this one was a little too drawn out on the "who done it", but never the less enjoyable because he doesn't give away the villian too quickly) :O) This is the second book of Paul Levine's Lassiter series I've read (I'm hooked!) and I'm on to the third in less than 4 days!
This is from the early part of the series with Jake Lassiter as the main character. I love this character but think he gets better with age. While this is a worthwhile read I found the plot somewhat confusing, there was a lot going on and several characters to keep straight. It just didn't have quite the "spunk" the other books that I have read have.
I'm not sure if I was tired too often when reading this book but I kept losing the thread of the story. I do like Lassiter's character, he's hero material with a believably flawed nature and that's what would bring me back to the next book in the series.
I think I read this too long after it was written. A large part of the plot was based on a computer dating business, and the description of the technology was so outdated it rendered the book unreadable to me.
Lassiter goes police procedural. And it is better than his usual mystery/thriller. A bit dated but great for free- Levine put out most of his backlist for free when he first self published.
This was my least favorite Lassiter book. It seemed to drag. Still love Lassiter's sense of humor, but maybe it was too much Tennyson or something. Anyway I rated this one 4 stars, Jim gave 4.5.

Another excellent read by Paul Levine. His dialogue is up there with Elmore Leonard. His plots are a blend of Robert B. Parker and Carl Hiaasen.
Great beginning! Grabs you from the start. Slower in the middle, then a roller coaster of an ending. Jake is wry and funny. Surprising twists.
Another great thriller by Paul Levine . I look forward to starting the next book.
