Editorial Reviews

Review

"A clever, colorful thriller...with characters drawn with a fine hand. Levine ratchets up the tension but never neglects the heart of the story - his characters." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"If somehow, Perry Mason and Stephanie Plum had a love child, he might be named Steve Solomon."-Huntress Reviews.com 

"A stupendous cat and mouse thriller...on a par with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum's series." -Harriet Klausner, Amazon 5-star review

"Another fast-moving, highly entertaining mystery. Encore, encore!" -Reviewing The Evidence 

"So gripping I could not put the book down and read it straight through. Wonderfully written story about a love/hate relationship between two lawyers." - Amazon 5-star review

"Thanks for the entertainment, Mr. Levine! The world could use some more laughs." - Amazon 5-star review

"A must-read for lovers of action, good dialogue and sparkling characters. The writing reminds me of Robert B. Parker and Janet Evanovich, with a dash of Anne Tyler thrown in." - Rambles.net

"There are bits of the late, great John D. MacDonald, the current great Carl Hiassen, and overtones of Hepburn and Tracy movies." - Amazon 5-star review

"Solomon's Laws delight. A wonderful recurring cast of characters." - Craig's Book Club

"Love Solomon and Lord and their shenanigans. Paul Levine is great with his characters and storyline. Captures you in the first chapter and keeps you going throughout. You think you have it all figured out and then in the end he twists it enough to keep you on edge till the last page." - Amazon 5-star review

4.0 out of 5 stars A different, darker entry September 1, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At 352 pages, Kill All the Lawyers is the shortest Solomon vs. Lord book, but like the other two, it is expertly paced. I don't think it could get more harrowing, with "Dr. Bill" Kreeger turning Steve's every good intention against him in a bid to tear apart his life with Victoria and Bobby.

One mark of great characters is the range of stories they allow you to tell, from lightly comedic to absolutely grave. I'm right there with them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Title! February 15, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was so looking forward to reading this, since the previous two in the series were enjoyable. Maybe it was just me this time, but the bad guy being a pedophile could not make me laugh - at all. Murder apparently doesn't bother me, but this vile act does. Also, the bickering between Solomon and Lord got a bit tired for me. The jokes and t-shirts are still worth it and maybe I just don't want to see Bobby grow up? If there is another in the series, I will for sure read it with fingers crossed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific series continues September 25, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Imagine awakening to a 300-pound marlin stuck in your front door. A sign of animosity perhaps? Steve Solomon thinks so, and he knows who it is from: Pop psychologist / radio host William Kreeger (a.k.a. "Dr. Bill") is the only client whose case Steve deliberately lost, ensuring Kreeger was sent to prison. Now, after six years, Dr. Bill is out and wants revenge.

Sound like Cape Fear? Well, that's not too surprising, given how author Paul Levine has shown himself to be a big John D. MacDonald fan. But it's just the beginning of Kill All the Lawyers, the third entry in Levine's bestselling romantic-comedy / legal-thriller series begun with Solomon vs. Lord and continued with The Deep Blue Alibi (a play on MacDonald's The Deep Blue Good-by).

Despite the source of its title (Henry VI, Part 2), Levine has no Shakespearean aspirations; all he wants is for his readers to have a good time and get hooked on his characters. After the first two novels, I was definitely hooked and very eager to get my copy of Kill All the Lawyers. Levine writes his characters with just the right amount of detail -- they're reportedly based on real people. This is all the better to project ourselves onto, and ideal for both comedy and pathos, of which there are both in plenteous amounts.

Solomon and Lord have their usual relationship / partnership issues: Are they so different that they're not right for each other? Steve won't "whore for banks and insurance companies" to upgrade the practice and rejects every property Victoria finds for them to live in. Is he holding her back? And who is the nubile young girl who sunbathes nude at Kreeger's home, yet who calls him "Uncle Bill"? And why is she naked every time Steve confronts her, Victoria would like to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as its predecessors February 2, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Steve Solomon is beset on a number of fronts in Kill All the Lawyers, the third installment in Paul Levine's series of legal whodunits. The most worrying of his concerns is that a certain Dr. William Kreeger--former client, celebrity psychiatrist, and sociopath--is out of prison and out to punish Steve for having lost his case. Meanwhile, Steve's father, disgraced judge Herbert T. Solomon, has gone Orthodox. Steve's sister Janice has found Jesus in rehab. And Steve's nephew Bobby has found the "harlot-in-training" down the street. To top it off, Victoria Lord, Steve's law partner and lover, is having doubts about their relationship. She spends most of this book agonizing over her decision to move in with him.

Steve has found a worthy nemesis in his Dr. Phil-ish celebridoc, whose motives remain a mystery for the better part of the book. Ultimately Kreeger's story merges nicely with those of Bobby and Bobby's mother--who has shown up in Miami with her own brand of menace, the threat of removing Bobby from Steve's care. But it's unfortunate that Victoria takes a back seat in this one. Her relationship with Steve is less interesting here than in previous outings. Too little is made of Herbert Solomon, too, who shows up now and again to spout some Yiddishism and then exits the story. On a brighter note, there is some nice development in the relationship between Steve and Victoria's mother Irene, a woman at once magisterial and tawdry--and with a penchant for naked display. We watched Irene cavort naked poolside in Deep Blue Alibi. This time around, alas, we are made to look on as she splays her legs for an intimate waxing. The scene falls short of funny and into the realm of the shudder-inducing.

Kill All the Lawyers seems a little stale in comparison with the first two books in the series, the characters often more cartoonish than not. I'm hoping the next outing finds them a bit more nuanced than they were allowed to be here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Victoria Vacillates...Again April 4, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The mismatched pair of Solomon and Lord is back for their third installment, this time dealing with a murderous ex-client of Steve's. Years ago when Steve was representing Dr. Bill Kreeger on a murder charge, he found evidence of just how cold and sociopathic the doctor was, and did something a little unethical to get him put away. Now Dr. Kreeger is a radio shrink, and keeps lambasting Steve on the air, when he isn't going out of the way to be Steve's best buddy. Steve's partner in law and life, Victoria Lord, is disgusted with Steve's lack of ethics and starts to worry she may be doing the wrong thing moving in with him. Plus, Steve's nephew Bobby is hitting puberty, and along with his interest in girls, Bobby also wants to rekindle a relationship with his drug-addled, abusive mother. While Steve does mental battle with Dr. Kreeger, he keeps getting arrested for assault--on the radio. Will he be able to hold it all together and put Dr. Kreeger back behind bars, or will he wind up there himself?

While it has its share of chuckles and great, quotable lines (I love Solomon's Laws), the main story about Steve's struggle with Dr. Kreeger takes a backseat to matters between Steve and Victoria. That wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, except it's just a rehash of exactly what went on between Victoria and Steve in their last book, The Deep Blue Alibi. Victoria vacillating over whether being with Steve is the right thing or not wasn't all that entertaining the first time around, and this time it really made the book drag. Steve's fears over losing Bobby are getting a little stale, too. It was hard to enjoy the author's wit while hoping the story would move along already. Steve is not the typical male lead, behaving irresponsibly and sometimes childishly, but that's his charm.

More About the Author

PAUL LEVINE worked as a newspaper reporter, a law professor and a trial lawyer before becoming a full-time novelist. Paul claims that writing fiction comes naturally: he told whoppers for many years in his legal briefs. His books have been translated into 23 languages, none of which he can read.

He 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.

He is best known for two series of legal thrillers: "Jake Lassiter" and "Solomon vs. Lord." A Miami Dolphins linebacker turned hard-nosed lawyer, Lassiter has been described by Booklist as "one of the most entertaining series characters in contemporary crime fiction." In USA Today, Larry King wrote: "Mystery writing at its very, very best." There are eleven books in the series, beginning with "To Speak for the Dead" which is still going strong 25 years after initial hardcover publication.

"Solomon vs. Lord" is a fast-paced, battle-of-the-sexes dramedy featuring two young Miami lawyers -- Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord -- who duel in and out of court. The Chicago Sun-Times praised the legal caper 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." The book is the first of four in the series.

New in 2015: "Bum Rap," which brings together Lassiter with Solomon & Lord. Jake 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)

Nine of Paul's novels have hit number one bestseller status on Amazon in their genres:

LEGAL THRILLERS: To Speak for the Dead; Solomon vs. Lord; Fool Me Twice; and Illegal

MYSTERIES: State vs. Lassiter; The Deep Blue Alibi; Mortal Sin; and Impact

SERIAL KILLERS: Night Vision

Here's a list of the "Jake Lassiter" books in order of publication:

To Speak for the Dead
Night Vision
False Dawn
Mortal Sin
Riptide
Fool Me Twice
Flesh & Bones
Lassiter
Last Chance Lassiter
State vs. Lassiter
Bum Rap

The "Solomon vs. Lord" series:

Solomon vs. Lord
The Deep Blue Alibi
Kill All the Lawyers
Habeas Porpoise

OTHER ENDEAVORS: Paul wrote 23 episodes of the TV series "JAG," which gave him an opportunity to steer a nuclear submarine and land on the deck of an aircraft carrier, all without endangering national security. He is a graduate of Penn State University where he majored in journalism and the University of Miami Law School where he majored in the swimming pool. He passed the Florida Bar exam in his first try in what he suspects was a computer glitch.

He was a trial lawyer with the mammoth international law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where he did not even pretend to know all his partners' names. He specialized in "complex litigation," cases so abstruse that even lawyers charging 800 bucks an hour didn't fully understand them. He tried hundreds of cases and handled appeals at every level, including the Supreme Court. Along the way, he filed expense accounts nearly as creative as his legal briefs.

Paul says he enjoys writing more than lawyering because he no longer keeps time sheets and gets to work in his underwear. He formerly lived in the hills of Southern California, which he claims are populated by rattlesnakes and coyotes, and those are just the Hollywood agents. Paul recently moved back to Miami, a place Joan Didion once called "a rich and wicked pastel boomtown." But to Paul, it's just a place where the "mosquitoes are biting, but the fish ain't."
