Publisher's Summary

NFL linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter has had it with shifty clients, dirty prosecutors, and a legal system out of whack. It's enough to make a man want to leave Miami and never look back - until he gets a call from Victoria Lord, the better half of hot local legal team Solomon & Lord. Her partner in life and law has been arrested for murder. What's worse: the only person who can clear him has fled the city. Now it's up to Jake and Victoria to track down the witness - a stunning "bar girl" - before she's roped in by the feds...or eliminated by the Russian mob.

Jake knows that if he doesn't get to the witness first, his client's case is lost. Luckily, he's got some good advice from his college football coach: "Buckle your chin strap and hit somebody". And sometimes, the only way to win a tough case is to do just that.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "My expectations were low...."

    for this crime/trial novel, but to my surprise it was a really cute story. It's well worth the 7.5 hours listening time.

    I'm a horror, sci-fi fan. My favourites are Lovecraft, Poe, Bierce, Jackson, Levin, and King.

    Story
    "It was okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listen to books while I work, so it wasn't time wasted; I am listening while completing my work.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Jake Lassiter seems like a whiny character. I was glad that Victoria Lord and Steve Solomon were present in the story because I really enjoy the Solomon vs. Lord books. I wish that they had included Bobby and Steve's dad in the story....they always add humor and depth.


    What about Michael Levine’s performance did you like?

    I thought he sounded a lot like Adam West and I love Adam West.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    probably not, but I would see Solomon Vs. Lord movies


    Any additional comments?

    I love Jake's "Granny"...she is a wonderful character and should have more presence.

    Story
    "Nice Mash-Up of Levine's Nicely Defined Characters"
    Where does Bum Rap rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since Levine's earliest work (To Speak For the Dead) I've been a fan and took a second reading of Solomon vs. Lord to appreciate his widening body of work. Enjoyed the intersection of these characters and artful balance with the wit and wiles that have become hallmarks of Levine's craft. As an audiobook, much of the onus comes from the narration, and while I know the value of speed reading when it comes to navigating the printed page, the "speed reading" of Bum Rap felt like too much of that Cuban coffee was consumed in the process.

    "Love the combination of Solomon Lord and Lassiter!"

    Contrasting Lassiter and Solomon with Lord as the pivot point was brilliant. Each character challenges the other in unexpected twists and turns, resulting in an unanticipated and perfect ending ... A great read!

    "The story is nice and intriguing, but"

    The performance needed a female voice as well. Also the story while great one, the solving the dilemma part is not justified. Over all good read and I would recommend it.

    I enjoyed this book so much. Fun filled excitement. I learned to love and dislike some of the characters. I could not stop listening.

    "A wild ride"

    I thought this book was fun and entertaining. Some things seemed to fall into place a little too easily, but overall is say it was good. Great narration also. I really felt all the different characters.

    Reading it myself might have been better, but listening was grueling. I don't recommend it.
