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.

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.

Lawyering

I so far haven't come across a Levine book that I didn't enjoy. In this one Steve has to be quieter than usual, but he remains his quirky self. I like the legal shenanigans and the demystifying of judges, D A hirelings, and semi-honest defense attorneys. I have encountered them all in my career. Of course, most of these folks are really good people and justice is served well in the end. A special blessing here is that it's served with humorous good fun.
