From the cover: Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter, "Ex-football player, ex-public defender, ex-a-lot-of-things," is defending Dr. Roger Salisbury, a surgeon and womanizer charged with malpractice in the death of wealthy Philip Corrigan. But the dead man's daughter insists that the doctor and her sexy stepmother conspired to kill her father - and wants Lasiter to prove it.
Can Lassiter really defend his client for malpractice and build a case against him for murder? Turning for help to the wisdom of his old friend, retired county coroner Charlie Riggs, Lassiter hopes to get the evidence he needs from the dead man himself. But outside the courtroom, he soon finds more trouble than he ever imagined possible - murder, missing persons, grave robbery, kinky sex, and deadly drugs - as he searches Florida's steamy streets and tropical swamps for a cold-blooded killer.
