Publisher's Summary

They are the legal world's oddest couple: a shorts-and-sandals beach bum and a Coral Gables blue blood. The only thing keeping them together is that they're on the same side.Why does an ex-client want to kill Steve Solomon? Who doesn't want to kill a lawyer? Still, a 300-pound marlin stuck in your front door is a weird death threat, even by south Florida standards. How can Steve Solomon explain to his partner why an ex-client wants him dead? When Victoria Lord learns the reason, she's angry enough to murder her law partner, too, or at least break up Solomon & Lord.But while a psychopathic ex-con comes between the squabbling Miami lawyers, his real target catches them both off guard.

What the Critics Say

"This clever, colorful thriller...focuses as much on the age-old conflict between Mars and Venus as on delivering legal wisecracks and page-turning suspense...." (Publishers Weekly)

Difficult to decide: 2 or 3 stars

Author Paul Levine seems unable to decide whether to go with "light and fun" or "dark and evil" so he tries to do both in the same novel. It does not work well! The Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord series has promise as light/fun legal thrillers. The characters including Solomon, his law partner and lover Lord, Solomon's precocious 12 year old nephew Billy, Lord's eccentric mother, and Solomon's disgraced judge dad are all likable and well developed. When author Levine goes for light and fun he is successful. William Dufris does an excellent job of narration.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Should be funny--isn't !

I'm writing this before I finish this tedious book. The previous one I listened to by Paul Levine was awful; and at that time I vowed never to read his books again. Wooed by a sale, and need of books, I made the same mistake, again. Levine used to be interesting 20 years ago--but no longer. He tries way too hard to be humorous; but it comes off as trite and rinky-dink. I always get the feeling it is self-serving; that the suave, handsome protagonist is a thinly veiled self characterization--good looking Miami attorney.

But, even worse than the shallow non-plot, and the over-the-top characurizations; is the narration. He endows every voice but Steve's as whiny, squeaky, and high-pitched. Plus, he tries to articulate, but over-articulates--with annoying mispronunciations. Like young children and women who sound childlike, he mispronounces words with a "d" followed by "n't"; such as "didn't" as"di-dent", rather than "did-nt". The same with "wouldn't, shouldn't", etc. it is so distracting, it is almost more annoying than the whiny voices.

Now, I absolutely vow to never again pay for one of his books.
