As I have said before, Mr. Lashner deserves a wider audience. Luke Daniels already has a wide audience. The two make a good team. This is a novella, which will seem short for an Audible listener who is accustomed to regular-length novels. However, it is worth either the money or the credit. Victor Carl is a sad-sack guy, who flirts with unethical but potentially wildly profitable behavior, including the woman of his dreams, a job at a prestigious firm, increased money, and so forth. It might ruin the ending for you, but suffice it to say that Victor proves himself to be an ethical guy in the end. There is wit in the writing and a solid delivery of the plot and the humor by Mr. Daniels. The plot is actually fairly complicated for a novella, and there were moments near the end at which I got a bit confused about who did what to whom, and where, and why, and when, etc. That, however, is nit-picking, when I consider the fact that I am now getting to know a very interesting hero, and I am now eagerly anticipating hearing him attack another complicated legal case. You won't be disappointed here in spite of the brevity: that is the sole of wit, as you know. Have fun! There are many, many books about which one cannot begin to say that, and yet some of them are very popular, indeed. I will mention no names.

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.
