FOOL ME TWICE
The big man looked at me, his eyes filled with hate. "You ever hear the expression, 'Fool me once, shame on you'?"
"Sure. 'Fool me twice, shame on me.'"
"No, Lassiter. Fool me twice, you're dead."

One of Levine's best. I've been a big fan of the Jake Lassiter books since the early 1990's. One reviewer said Lassiter was Travis McGee with a law degree. True, John D. MacDonald's character and Lassiter do have things in common. Both are tough guys with a tender heart. Both get involved with questionable women. Both also travel a lot looking for trouble or solving other people's lethal dilemmas. McGee lived on a houseboat in Ft. Lauderdale and Lassiter in his little coral rock bungalow in Miami's Coconut Grove. In "Night Vision," Lassiter flew to London on the trail of a serial killer. In "False Dawn," he traveled to Havana. Something about stolen art. In "Riptide," it was Maui, and in "Fool Me Twice," when Lassiter is a murder suspect, he hits the road to Aspen where there's a mystery to be solved in an old silver mine under the ski slopes. The ending is downright explosive. These are smart, witty books with equal measure suspense and humor. As always, there are unique characters, this time a scary cowboy who's deadly with a nail gun. Highly recommend this book, and as with the others, it doesn't matter in which order you read them.
