Where does Fool Me Twice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Fool me Twice is a light reading courtroom drama. Jake Lassiter is a lovably flawed lawyer who unwittingly manages to get tangled in his clients' ploys sometimes. I especially love his courtroom banters. This book is not great literature but it is very enjoyable and fast listening. It ranks right in the middle of the books I've listened to so far.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Fool Me Twice?
I especially liked the courtroom comfrontation between Jake Lassiter and Ms Barroso. It was like living a Perry Mason moment that rarely happens in real life but that we all dream about when we want to be able to prove something.
Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I have listened to other Luke Daniels performances. This one is just as good as the others. He reads with dramatic effect without sounding affected. However, given that he has read so many of Levine's Jake Lassiter Series, you'd think he would lose the Mexican accent when he is pretending to speak Spanish like a Cuban. It is as distracting as hearing a Southern drawl on a character supposedly from New York. Also it would be nice if he practiced his Spanish words before he performed the book. Otherwise, he is very good.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Jake thought he was going to jail for life, I found it moving that he worried about what would happen to his newfound nephew.

I have read/listened to virtually all of Paul Levine's legal thriller novels in both the Jake Lassiter and Solomon vs. Lord series. Fool Me Twice, set in Miami and Colorado, Is different, very different. The novel gets 5 stars not because of the quality of the story, but because of the sheer audacity of the author in telling such a tall take. As unlikely as the novel is, it is immensely entertaining. Luke Daniels narrates the story perfectly.
