Jake Lassiter Tackles the College Admissions Scandal
Rich parents will pay anything to get their kids into college...
Kip Lassiter can get you a perfect score on any test...
And Kip’s heartbroken uncle Jake must defend an unwinnable case.
CHEATER’S GAME dives deep into the true-to-life college admissions scandal with an explosive federal trial that rocks the courthouse.
Suffering brain damage from his football injuries, Miami lawyer Jake Lassiter says goodbye to the courtroom...until his nephew Kip desperately needs his help. Kip has been working for millionaire Max Ringle in a shady scheme to help rich, entitled kids gain admission to elite universities.
Ringle, the mastermind of the fraud, shifts the blame to Kip who’s charged with multiple crimes. Dr. Melissa Gold, Lassiter’s fiancée, supervises experimental treatments intended to keep the ailing lawyer strong enough for a grueling trial. As a fiery showdown looms with Ringle, Lassiter risks everything – including his own life – to keep his nephew out of prison.
