Certain that his client, Francisco Crespo, lied when he confessed to the murder of a co-worker, Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter sets out to prove his client innocent

Blackwell North Amer
Paul Levine, master craftsman of the courtroom mystery and bestselling author of To Speak for the Dead and Night Vision, pits his tough Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter against a seamy case of high-priced art thefts and low-rent murder.
Jake could pick 'em all right. This time his client and sometime acquaintance Francisco Crespo not only confessed to the charge of murdering a fellow worker with a forklift, he supplied a preposterously detailed story as to how he did it. Crespo is lying, of course, and against his better judgment Jake Lassiter sets out to prove his sleazy client innocent.
Crespo's boss is paying Lassiter's tab - but that's exactly where the trail leads, right into the lap of the incredibly rich Japanese art collector Matsuo Yagamata. With the help of velvet-eyed, high-tech P.I. Lourdes Soto, her fiercely anticommunist father, and retired coroner Charlie Riggs, Jake zeroes in on a theft ring of international proportions involving the CIA, a Japanese crimelord, Fidel Castro, and the new Russian Commonwealth.
Through twisted revelations and bizarre deaths, ex-football jock turned trial lawyer Jake Lassiter follows a bloody trail from Miami to Havana - and back home again for an explosive finish.
Once again, author of To Speak for the Dead and Night Vision Paul Levine redefines the thriller genre with False Dawn, a jolt of adrenaline sure to keep you turning pages until first light.
