"One part John Grisham, two parts Carl Hiaasen." - Tulsa World
"A thriller as fast as the wind." - Tampa Tribune
Jake Lassiter chases a beautiful woman and stolen bonds from Miami to Maui,
where in an explosive finale, he learns lessons never taught on the football field or in the courtroom. If you enjoy John Grisham, Harlan Coben, Carl Hiaasen, and James Patterson, you'll love "Riptide" from Paul Levine, winner of the John D. MacDonald fiction award. Levine has also been nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, and James Thurber prizes. A former trial lawyer, he wrote more than 20 episodes of the CBS military drama "JAG."
