Publisher's Summary

They are Florida's most mismatched legal duo: one a glamorous Miami blue blood, the other a Coconut Grove beach bum. And when they get together, you can throw every law right out the window.

What do you get when you mix beautiful people, family secrets, and a yacht washed up on Sunset Key with a hundred grand in cash and a dying man? Steve Solomon sees a case that can get Solomon & Lord off the ground. But Victoria Lord spies a golden opportunity to go out on her own. With her uncle as a murder suspect and her hunky ex-boyfriend back in the picture, Victoria is pushing to take control as Solomon struggles to keep from losing it. And as an explosive trial looms, they're fighting against time, the law, and each other to expose a killer who came to paradise and hasn't left.

    "Try the original"

    When I read "Solomon vs Lord", Paul Levine's first audio book, I laughed out loud at the clever, witty banter between the 2 main characters. I was really looking forward this novel, but frankly I was somewhat disappointed. I know why - the narrator is different. While this book is good, Christopher Lane (who narrated the first novel) did a much better job with the sharp, back and forth banter than this narrator. Good book, but it could have been alot better.

    "Great listen"

    I loved "Solomon vs Lord" and this book was just as good. Maybe the first reader was better but William Dufris did a fine job. (If you want a bad reader listen to Sidney Sheldon read some of his stuff) I think that if you liked "Solomon vs Lord". you'll like this one.

    "It's not the book that's bad..............."

    Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord are characters I loved in "Solomon vs Lord", therefore I was thrilled to see them return in "The Deep Blue Alibi". In the first book, Steve was droll, keen eyed, sharp tongued and intelligent. Victoria was preppy, sassy, intelligent and a little overwhelmed. Together they were a great team. In the second book, both are whiny, stupid, dull witted caricatures of their former selves. What happened? Simple, really, and it's a mistake made by too many authors. The reader is absolutely awful. In the first book, Chris Lane made these characters what they were and they were great. In this book Mr. Dufris ruins them. They are nothing like the people they started out to be because he cannot read them well. I couldn't stand his overacting, his constantly whining characters, his inability to make these people the engaging couple and intelligent lawyers they were, and he completely ruined the book for me. I have no idea what the plot is or how it might have ended because I stopped listening after about a half hour of this terrible destruction of favorite characters. Authors: Wake up! Find the best reader for your characters, then stick with that reader no matter what the cost. Readers: If this is NOT a first book, listen to the characters and try to do better. This was a total waste of my money.

    "As if written by another person. what happened?"

    The first book in this series was pretty good--The characters were likable, decent narrator and good plot flow. So, what happened?!

    It's as though another person wrote this book and made up another set of characters and was told to up the cheese factor. He uses words like, "hunkalicious and humpalicious" and says "kiddo" about 40x too many--seriously...? Solomon is completely diluted to a horny frat boy and Lords' internal conflict of "who am I" is really contrived. It doesn't help that the narrator basically whines his way through the whole book. What a disappointment!

    If you liked the first one, I'd pass on this one. It'll leave a bad taste in your mouth.
