Publisher's Summary

NFL linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter has had it with shifty clients, dirty prosecutors, and a legal system out of whack. It's enough to make a man want to leave Miami and never look back - until he gets a call from Victoria Lord, the better half of hot local legal team Solomon & Lord. Her partner in life and law has been arrested for murder. What's worse: the only person who can clear him has fled the city. Now it's up to Jake and Victoria to track down the witness - a stunning "bar girl" - before she's roped in by the feds...or eliminated by the Russian mob.

Jake knows that if he doesn't get to the witness first, his client's case is lost. Luckily, he's got some good advice from his college football coach: "Buckle your chin strap and hit somebody". And sometimes, the only way to win a tough case is to do just that.

    "My expectations were low...."

    for this crime/trial novel, but to my surprise it was a really cute story. It's well worth the 7.5 hours listening time.

    "Lawyering"

    I so far haven't come across a Levine book that I didn't enjoy. In this one Steve has to be quieter than usual, but he remains his quirky self. I like the legal shenanigans and the demystifying of judges, D A hirelings, and semi-honest defense attorneys. I have encountered them all in my career. Of course, most of these folks are really good people and justice is served well in the end. A special blessing here is that it's served with humorous good fun.

    Story
    "Nice Mash-Up of Levine's Nicely Defined Characters"
    Where does Bum Rap rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since Levine's earliest work (To Speak For the Dead) I've been a fan and took a second reading of Solomon vs. Lord to appreciate his widening body of work. Enjoyed the intersection of these characters and artful balance with the wit and wiles that have become hallmarks of Levine's craft. As an audiobook, much of the onus comes from the narration, and while I know the value of speed reading when it comes to navigating the printed page, the "speed reading" of Bum Rap felt like too much of that Cuban coffee was consumed in the process.

    Story
    "Love the combination of Solomon Lord and Lassiter!"

    Contrasting Lassiter and Solomon with Lord as the pivot point was brilliant. Each character challenges the other in unexpected twists and turns, resulting in an unanticipated and perfect ending ... A great read!

    Story
    "Narrator left a lot to be desired"

    The Russian and Cuban accents sounded exactly the same. If you can't do a good accent, just narrate. The narrator read very quickly and put vocal emphasis on odd places when he performed any at all.

    "I miss the old Jake Lassiter."

    This book barely resembles the first books in this series. All of the things I loved about them were missing.

    "Awful"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Levine?

    He was a big part to my negative rating. It was really bad and I just couldn't move past it.


    Any additional comments?

    This MAY have been a good story. In all fairness, I did not finish it. I simply could not stand to listen to it anymore. So, the story was not interesting enough to compensate for the narration and vice versa.
    Such a shame.

    "just ok"

    this book is entertaining as all of Levine's book have been. it is pretty simplistic Indic not enjoy the narrator on this story. I do not think I got audio previously. probably my last Levine book for a while

    "Passes the time"

    It's finally over. The wrap up is ok, the last chapter is disappointing. Not sure it's worth the time.
