Riptide has the same type of clever and funny lines and situations as other novels by Paul Levine, but most of the novel is lazy and lethargic. I expect better of Paul Levine. This is my 12th Paul Levine legal thriller in audio format. But Riptide is not really a legal thriller at all unless one defines legal mystery/thriller as any novel that has a lawyer as protagonist. There is a client, but there is no legal case. The client could have hired any person of the street to do the job; he did not need a lawyer.
Narration by Luke Daniels is outstanding,

Ever since the great John D. MacDonald passed in 1986, I have been searching for a replacement the noble Travis Magee. Early on I thought that Paul Levine’s Jake Lassiter would come close but the Lassiter of book five is the same character in book one. Lassiter’s lack of evolution limits the plot as well as any expectation that Lassiter will form lasting relationships similar to Magee’s Meyer.
