Overview

They don't call us sharks for our ability to swim.

Second-string linebacker turned disillusioned defense attorney Jake Lassiter finally switches teams. Appointed special prosecutor in a high-profile murder case, he vows to take down a prominent surgeon accused of killing his wife. There's just one problem...or maybe three: no evidence, no witness, and no body.

But Lassiter's used to fighting impossible battles on the gridiron and in court. After all, he's not totally burned-out--just a little scorched.

Standing in Lassiter's way are the defense lawyers: slick-talking Steve Solomon and blueblood Victoria Lord, who have their own complicated history with the defendant. Not to mention the specter of CTE, the lethal brain disease Lassiter may have contracted banging heads in the NFL. Drained of his mental edge just when he needs it most, Lassiter must do whatever it takes to win this case--even if it costs him his life. Because law is a contact sport, and you don't get trophies for trying.
