Paul Levine to Donate Proceeds of Sale of Jake Lassiter eBook to Children's Cancer Fund

To Speak for the Dead by Paul Levine
More information about the book

Legal thriller author Paul Levine has posted on his website that the ebook edition of the first book in the Jake Lassiter series, To Speak for the Dead, is now available (for a limited time only) for just $2.99. Or, as he puts it, "less than your double mocha latte, and far fewer calories."

Best of all, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original hardcover publication of the book, Paul is donating all all proceeds of the ebook to the Four Diamonds Fund, which supports cancer treatment for kids at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. (Click on the cover to the right to purchase the Kindle edition from Amazon.com; other links to purchase are on the author's website.)

About To Speak for the Dead (from the publisher): If dead men could talk, Miami trial lawyer Jake Lassiter would be out of a job. As it is, the “ex-football player, ex-public defender, ex-a-lot-of-things” has an uncanny knack for digging up the truth ... and the trouble that usually comes with it.

This time, he’s defending Dr. Roger Salisbury, an orthopedic surgeon and enigmatic womanizer charged with medical malpractice in the death of wealthy Philip Corrigan. But what appears to be a routine case takes a sinister turn when Susan, the dead man’s daughter, insists that the doctor and her sexy stepmother, Mrs. Melanie Corrigan, conspired to kill her father. Now, Susan wants Lassiter to prove it.

Lassiter would love to help the lovely and willful Susan, but how can he defend his client for malpractice while building a case against him for murder? Meanwhile, Corrigan’s beautiful widow makes a play for Lassiter, even as she continues to hold the brilliant surgeon under her spell.

Turning for help to his old friend, retired coroner Charlie Riggs, Lassiter hopes to get the evidence he needs from the dead man himself. Could the late Philip Corrigan reveal whether his death was accidental or homicidal?

Soon, Lassiter finds himself embroiled in murder, missing persons, grave robbery, kinky sex, and deadly drugs as he searches Florida’s steamy streets and tropical waterways for a cold-blooded killer.
