What to expect

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.

It starts with a three-hundred-pound marlin stuck in his front door. Even by South Florida standards, where murderers outnumber mosquitoes, this registers as weird. It's not long before Steve Solomon figures out who's making the bizarre death threats. But how can he explain to his partner why an ex-client wants him dead?

Victoria Lord was used to Steve's cutting legal corners to win, but breaking the law to lose was downright unethical, even for Steve. Now Solomon & Lord is being bashed on local radio and a celebrity shrink with a homicidal me-first philosophy wants to be Steve's new best friend. With a killer on the loose and legal disaster looming, is Steve's lover and law partner about to walk out on him? Is this the end of Solomon & Lord?

As the squabbling between the Miami lawyers escalates, the killer's real target catches them both off guard.

Listen to a sample

“This clever, colorful thriller from former attorney Levine focuses as much on the age-old conflict between Mars and Venus as on delivering legal wisecracks and page-turning suspense…Levine ratchets up the tension with each development but never neglects the heart of the story—his characters.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Even though Levine’s latest is a clever thriller, one can't ignore William Dufris’ focus on the real substance of this work—the characters…Solomon bears more resemblance to a beach bum than a lawyer. Victoria Lord, his partner and lover, is as straight as she can be. Dufris excels in portraying the pair as night and day. He also delivers a memorable performance of Steve’s savant-like nephew, Bobby, a character in himself. Dufris makes this story a fast and light listen. His tongue-in-cheek characterizations—especially those of twin bimbos and even the killer—make listening a delight.”
