Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Pro football player turned lawyer Jake Lassiter is savoring a drink at a South Beach bar when a beautiful young woman shoots the man on the next bar stool and faints in Lassiter's arms. It's one way to get clients, he figures. The woman, Chrissy Bernhardt, is charged with the first-degree murder of her father, whom Chrissy believes abused her as a child. Lassiter takes the case, which is complicated by the fact that Chrissy's repressed memories of her father's abuse have been "unlocked" with the help of a therapist who turns out to be her late mother's former lover.

Mandy's Review:


A picture of a skinny blond chic holding a gun ... I'd say it's a pretty literal depiction of the character Chrissy Bernhardt.


The story has several twists and turns.  Just when I thought I had it figured out another twist would happen.  Nobody, except maybe Jake and his family, is who they appear to be.  I don't know that this will keep you guessing to the end, but it will definitely keep you interested until the story is over.

Main Characters

Jake - A former linebacker, who is not fond of quarterbacks (for several reasons) - He is now a lawyer living in south Florida.  I got the impression that Jake is ultimately a good guy.  He appreciates honesty from his clients and from himself.  If he has all the facts, good or bad, then he knows how he needs to handle a situation ... more people should be this way.

Chrissy - A model - She seems to fall in love too easily.  She is prone to fainting spells and is a little spoiled.

Guy - Chrissy's half-brother - Since his father's death, he controls all of the business dealings.  Seemingly a nice guy, he agrees to pay for Chrissy's legal defense in the murder of their father.


As a mystery-lover, I enjoyed this book.  There were several humorous parts in this story, which I appreciated.  I believe all mystery-lovers would appreciate this novel ... you should check it out.  =)
