After publishing the forgettable _9 Scorpions_ in 1998, Levine spent the next several years in LA doing TV writing, and he published four Solomon vs. Lord novels between 2005-2007. Entertaining, but a bit lightweight, not as gonzo as the Lassiter books. Between 2009-2014, he published four stand alone books, really good stuff---but not LASSITER.
You can see where I'm going here. Lassiter is the single strongest and best-developed character Levine ever created. And Levine knew that Lassiter had to return. In 2011, our hero was resurrected in _Lassiter_, and there have been four more Lassiter books since then. All of them were right in the groove of the original novels, although we see that Jake is getting older and wiser.
_Bum Luck_ is as every bit good as any other Lassiter book, and it's gratifying to see Jake aging and mellowing and ruminating about his ethics and his priorities. That's what people do when they get to be 50 years old. Here, Jake is having trouble with his conscience after years of defending guilty scumbags--and winning those cases a good percentage of the time.
The refusal of the NFL to acknowledge the effects of concussions among players is a theme here. In fact, Jake himself may have brain damage from his years as a football player. It's an intriguing topic, and it's a socially responsible statement from Levine.
I hope Levine still has a couple more Lassiter novels in him.
If you're uninitiated, start with _To Speak for the Dead_, 1990, and read your way through one of the best Florida crime series ever written.
book put the spotlight on some very serious issues regarding traumatic brain injuries. Well done, Mr Levine
one with all 3.
