Young Victor Carl is a fool for love and money, but he's not a blind fool. When Victor is propositioned by the woman of his dreams, he knows it's too good to be true. She offers him the perfect job, a prosperous future, and, best of all, when her tongue is in his mouth, she tastes like strawberries. But it isn't long before Victor realizes that to keep these prizes, he must keep his client - currently in the clink for murder - from spilling the truth about what really happened the night of the killing.
Is Victor ready to be bought? Hell yes. But not until he learns the truth. Someone is being protected, and Victor intends to find out who's worth all the fuss. Because Victor Carl is willing to sell his soul, sure, especially for a bite of strawberry, but only if the price is right.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This fun novella about Philadelphia attorney Victor Carl is not technically part of William Lashner's Victor Carl series, but in just over two hours this is a very delightful short. A few hours ago I wrote a one star review of Lashner's recently released audiobook The Four-Night Run saying that, "William Lashner is much better than this!". This perfect little novella shows just how good Lashner can be. A Bite of Strawberry is a truly wonderful story. The narration by Luke Daniels is as good as the story.
I highly recommend this fun legal thriller.
this is a great for short plane ride or commute. this like the rest of the books in the series is always entertaining always fun and a great read or listen in this case the few hours it takes might be a great way to introduce somebody to audible books..
OMG, what a delight. I loved everything about this novella, from the plot, characters, dialogue,(especially the sarcasm) to the narration. The narrator did one hell of a job. Mr Lashner is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.
