" "Former attorney and reporter Levine delivers a funny, fast-paced legal thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"Levine makes the most of his characters, as well as the South Florida setting both in and out of the courthouse." (Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel)
... and I've downloaded almost 300 books from Audible! Memorable humor, light mystery, quirky characters, touch of romance... smart and perfect. Wish there were more out there like this.
Since 2002 I have listened to two Audible books every month and I believe this is one of the best I have ever heard. I eagerly look foward to another book by Paul Levine narrated by Chris Lane or Scott Brick.
Fast moving and so so funny. The character development was fantastic. This is my first Paul Levine book and I'm hooked. I'm headed to Audible to get another.
This is an excellently well written book. I first wanted to hate the narrator Christopher Lane, don't ask me why. Maybe because I'd never heard him before and wasn't sure he could measure up the the level of Dick Hill or Scott Brick. I'm not always good with change, and then he sang and it was as smooth as gluten free jello-o pudding.
The character's were believable brash mouthy no it all but strangely likable people. With the exception of the villain, which is a must have in all mysteries / thrillers. I loved this book and no one could have narrated it better than Christopher Lane.
If you're on the fence about getting this book, come on over to the having read / listened to side and sit back and enjoy. You'll be glad you did.
There is some shit I will not eat! Famous last words. Enjoy, I did.
The characters are well defined and very likeable. The dialogue is witty and sharp. Even after you know the story there's a lot to enjoy in this book on a second or third read. The narrator is excellent, making these characters come alive.
The first half dozen chapters were funny and thrilling but it just got so raunchy and became a romance novel. Too much sex, porn, and stripper talk. It also comes across as degrading to women.
I recommended it when I first started listening but I can't recommend it now. I stopped listening/reading halfway through. Shame he is talented as a thriller/comedic writer.
Probably more like a 3.5 rating. Narrator did an adequate job.
Murder mystery. Started out kind of slow and I almost gave up. But once I got into the characters and becoming really interested in who murdered the victim, then I really enjoyed the book. Quite a round about way of finding the "killer".

Great fun. Good character development and fun, comp;ete mystery! Very nice performancee; I will be looking for this narrator
The above is Solomon's Law number 10. Read Solomon v Lord for all 10 of his witty rules. This is a fun legal thriller, with an ecellent insight into some of the trials and tribulations of criminal law, but it is not as much thriller as a dramedy. Very light reading, very little violence. Excellent reader, although his Yiddish pronunciations were awful. Highly recommended use of a credit, although if you are in your car, make sure its adults only.
It has the element of suspense/legal mystery, since the characters are lawyers, but it's really more chick lit than anything else.
At first, I was thrown by the narrators voice bc he sounded much older than the 34 yr old male character, but as he read on, I got into it and thought he did a great job distinguishing between the different characters. Definitely a keeper!
Good banter, good characters---pretty good, as far as this genre goes.
