Paul Levine is the Amazon Number One Bestselling Author of the "Jake Lassiter" and "Solomon vs. Lord" series. NEW: CHEATER'S GAME launches to widespread acclaim. "One of the best legal thrillers of 2020. - Best Here's the setup: Jake Lassiter tackles the college admissions scandal, and somebody is going to take a hit. Suffering brain damage from his days as a football player, Lassiter says goodbye to the courtroom...until his nephew Kip desperately needs his help. Kip has been working with millionaire Max Ringle in a shady scheme to help rich, entitled kids gain admission to elite universities. The mastermind of the fraud, Ringle cops a plea to save his own hide and shifts the blame to Kip who’s charged with multiple federal crimes. Dr. Melissa Gold, a famed neurologist and Lassiter’s fiancée, supervises experimental treatments intended to keep the ailing lawyer strong enough for a grueling trial. As a fiery showdown looms with Ringle, Lassiter risks everything – including his own life – to keep his nephew out of prison. As with all of the author's novels, CHEATER'S GAME is a Kindle Unlimited title. BUM DEAL, BUM LUCK, AND BUM RAP WOW READERS AND CRITICS In BUM DEAL, Lassiter switches sides and prosecutes a surgeon accused of killing his wife. It's an impossible case with no forensic evidence, no witness, and no body. Even worse: Lassiter's symptoms of C.T.E., the fatal brain disease from his football days, are growing more severe. The old courtroom warrior risks losing the case - and his life - in court. Upon publication, BUM DEAL soared to Number One on Amazon's "legal thriller" bestseller list. "A drop-everything, read-it-now book for me - and this one has Solomon & Lord too. BUM DEAL is fantastic.” – Lee Child, #1 Bestselling Author of the “Jack Reacher” series “BUM DEAL is the real deal. Jake Lassiter at his smart-talking, fast-thinking best. A funny, compelling and canny courtroom thriller, seasoned with a little melancholy and a lot of inside knowledge.” — Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author “Fascinating, fully developed characters and smart, well-paced dialogue keep the pages turning.

Now available in paperback, ebook and audio: BUM LUCK. Here's what the Sun-Sentinel had to say: "Paul Levine continues his trademark brisk pacing with timely storytelling and well-placed humor. Lassiter, Solomon and Lord make an unstoppable team — concerned about the law but even more about people." And this, from Bookreporter: "BUM LUCK is a one-sit, must-read novel full of memorable characters and unforgettable vignettes Put BUM LUCK at the top of your spring reading list.” Levine is best known for two series of legal thrillers: "Jake Lassiter" and "Solomon vs. Lord." The international bestseller BUM RAP brings together the protagonists of both series in an explosive murder case set on glitzy South Beach. BUM RAP was a Number One bestseller out of six million books in the Amazon Kindle Store. The setup: Lassiter has had it with sleazy clients, shifty prosecutors, and a legal system out of whack. He's about to hang up his shingle when Victoria Lord calls. Solomon has been arrested for murder. What's worse: the only person who can clear him has disappeared. Now it's up to Lassiter and Lord to track down the witness--a stunning Bar girl--before she's roped in by the feds...or eliminated by the Russian mob. "The pages fly by and the laughs keep coming in this irresistible South Florida crime romp. A delicious mix of thriller and comic crime caper." - Booklist (starred review of BUM RAP) Levine's first novel, TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD, introduced the world to Jake Lassiter, an NFL linebacker turned hard-nosed lawyer. Lassiter has been described by Booklist as "one of the most entertaining series characters in contemporary crime fiction." Levine's other series features squabbling lawyers - and lovers - Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord, who duel in and out of court. The Chicago Sun-Times praised "Solomon vs. Lord" as "remarkably fresh and original with characters you can't help loving and sparkling dialogue that echoes the Hepburn-Tracy screwball comedies. A hilarious, touching and entertaining twist on the legal thriller." Levine has won the John D. MacDonald fiction award and has been nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award, the Macavity, the International Thriller Writers Award, the Shamus Award, and the James Thurber Humor Prize. A graduate of Penn State and the University of Miami School of Law, he was a trial lawyer before becoming a full-time novelist. He divides his time between Santa Barbara, CA and Miami.
