Kurzbeschreibung

NO. 1 BESTSELLING LEGAL THRILLER

A doctor in love with his patient's wife...
A fatal mistake during surgery...
Accident? Malpractice? Or murder?


Defending a surgeon in a malpractice case, Jake Lassiter begins to suspect that his client is innocent of negligence...but guilty of murder. Add a sexy widow, a deadly drug, and a grave robbery to the stew, and you have Miami's trial of the century.


"Move over Scott Turow. 'To Speak for the Dead' is courtroom drama at its very best." - Larry King, USA Today

Synopsis

Roger Salisbury, a prominent surgeon, is accused of malpractice when a patient dies after surgery. Only after his acquittal does his lawyer, Jake Lassiter, find information suggesting that Salisbury was having an affair with the patient's wife. Lassiter needs all his skills to unravel the mystery.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Why Does A Hearse Horse Snicker Hauling A Lawyer Away? 10. Juli 2005
Von Konrei - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD is the first of Miami lawyer-turned-novelist Paul Levine's Jake Lassiter novels, and it acquits itself well as an initial effort.

Levine knows his landscape as well as fellow Floridians John D. MacDonald or Carl Hiaasen, and his characters are at least as well developed and colorful. In TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD we are introduced to former second-string Miami Dolphin-turned-slightly stumbling attorney Jake Lassiter, his irrepressible moonshine sippin' Granny Lassiter, and his best friend, the Latin-spouting retired ME, Dr. Charlie Riggs.

Very much a working lawyer, the self-deprecating Jake is usually quicker with his wisecracks than with his appellate arguments, but he somehow manages to be smarter than the people around him expect him to be, nonetheless.

Lassiter's failing is idealism---he firmly believes people to be better than they are---and he struggles to discover what more cynical, jaded human beings might assume from the outset.

Jake's recent client, Dr. Roger Salisbury has just been cleared of malpractice in the death of multimillionaire Miami developer Philip Corrigan, age sixtyish. No sooner has Salisbury walked out of the civil courtroom than Corrigan's twentysomething widow, Melanie Corrigan (aka ex-exotic dancer Autumn Rain) accuses him of murder.

As it turns out, Dr. Salisbury and the grieving widow have a sloppily kept secret "history." So...Is it murder? Is it conspiracy? Is it an accident...Is it revenge...? And why is Jake wearing one brown loafer and one cordovan?

As light reading goes, this one is a page-turner, though with the low-key feel of a summer dusk at Longboat Key.

Highly recommended fun!

4.0 von 5 Sternen DECENT FIRST BOOK 29. Oktober 2011
Von Wooley in PSL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Always looking for new books in the genre and the Jake Lassiter series was highly recommended, I am glad I looked at Paul Levine. Being from South Florida I think adds to the fun of the book for me. Jake Lassiter is a go get 'em lawyer and team him with crusty old retired coroner Charlie Riggs and you have quite an interesting team. Good characters and fun dialogue. TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD is a solid first effort and I will read the next book in the series, NIGHT VISION. RECOMMENDED

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just as Good! 12. Juli 2010
Von Nosnivel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Just as good the second (or is it the third or fourth?) time around as when I first read this book, discovering both Jake Lassiter and Paul Levine at the same time. Breezy writing, and a fun character, surrounded by a more than decent plot. I loved it then, and gobbled up everything by Levine after that, and I'm glad I took the time to buy and read again for a good cause. (Funny story - discovered Levine because I was looking to see whether Levinson [,Robert S.] was on the shelf of a then local bookstore.

4.0 von 5 Sternen AnEntertaining Read 4. August 2011
Von Maryann Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This was my first Jake Lassiter book and I found him to be an engaging character. I especially liked his irreverent approach to his job, as well as life in general. Secondary characters were equally engaging, although Granny Lassiter was a bit much. Most of the plot elements rang true, with the exception of some of the scenes with the dead body. Not being a lawyer, I can't say how true the courtroom scenes were, but I do know criminal law is showmanship, and that is something Lassiter does well.

By far, the best part of a Paul Levine book is his wry sense of humor and wonderful twist of wordage. I found myself wanting to highlight every other wisecrack or sardonic comment that came from Lassiter or Granny, or any of the other great characters in the book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Sadly, not recommended 27. Januar 2012
Von Vols55 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I say "sadly" because the author shows some flashes of greatness, with features of levity similar to Elmore Leonard and detail similar to Michael Connelly.

However, for a non-fantasy book to be good it has to be at least somewhat believable and this one is so ridiculous at times on legal grounds, medical grounds, and martial arts grounds, not to mention just common sense, that it is more pitiful than even laughable.

I find it inexplicable that the author does enough research to know what a rongeur is but not an aneurysm, and with many similar examples throughout the book.

It really is a shame that the author didn't refine this into something much better.
