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.

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.
