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.

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.

Nice Mash-Up of Levine's Nicely Defined Characters

Where does Bum Rap rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Since Levine's earliest work (To Speak For the Dead) I've been a fan and took a second reading of Solomon vs. Lord to appreciate his widening body of work. Enjoyed the intersection of these characters and artful balance with the wit and wiles that have become hallmarks of Levine's craft. As an audiobook, much of the onus comes from the narration, and while I know the value of speed reading when it comes to navigating the printed page, the "speed reading" of Bum Rap felt like too much of that Cuban coffee was consumed in the process.
