Is more interesting if you are familiar with what goes on in Florida. I enjoyed it, and laughed at some of the things that we all imagine are going on here.
Whether he's doing battle in the courtroom or slogging through steamy swamps, Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter is always up to his elbows in alligators. This time he uncovers a ruthless scheme to despoil the Florida Everlsades, and his own client may be his worst enemy.
It looks like a routine case when Jake defends real estate developer Nicky Florio in a civil suit. But nothing is as simple as it seems--not when Lassiter is having an affair with his client's wife, and not when he suspects that an environmentalist's death in Florio's wine cellar was murder, rather than a Bizarre accident.
Trial lawyer and former Dolphins linebacker Jake Lassiter feels obligated to defend the slimy, mob-connected Florio in the ensuing wrongful death suite -- partially because Lassiter is sleeping with his new client's wife. But the accused has his hands buried in even nastier stuff than the suspiciously timely demise of a nosy "tree-hugger." And Jake's involvement is about to make him an unwitting partner in a shady Everglades development scheme that oozes corruption, blood and money. And if he doesn't like it, he can tell it to the alligators.
