For me this book did nothing. Bad boy meets nice girl...confrontation begins. When I get a book about courtroom trials, I want to follow the action leading up to the trial without all the silly romance. It was predictable and boring.
Loved the book! Good fun story. Great characters, well developed. Flawed people you care about. All crisply written with wit, humor and love. Couldn't wait to start the second book (Kill All the Lawyers).
They are both lawyers, but they interpret the law very differently. She's a ruler follower, he's a rule breaker. She is a prosecuting attorney. He is a defense attorney. She is prim and proper in the courtroom. He acts like a madman in front of the jury. They infuriate and exasperate one another. And yet, since they day they were both thrown in jail for contempt, they haven't been able to stop thinking about each other. Solomon vs. Lord is a comedy, thriller, drama and romance novel all wrapped up in one. I loved it!
I dislike courtroom drama's a whole lot but a friend foisted this book upon me and insisted I read it because it was so great. Turns out she was correct. I enjoyed every page of this book despite the fact that some of it takes place inside a courtroom. The lawyers here are nicely drawn, real people and the book has a ton of heart as well as humor.
Excellent book, first in the series by Levine. Steve Solomon teams up with Victoria Lord to defend a socialite accused of murdering her husband. The dialogue reminds me of the old "Moonlighting" series with Cybill Shepard and Bruce Willis.
Great book. Loved it. Now have requested more of his books off this site. It's funny also with being suspenseful and you just don't know he gets away with stuff. Something between John Grisham and Robin Williams!
Very funny, although the main female character is obviously written by a man . . . who can't imagine a woman can know what she's doing without some man telling her how to do it. Great secondary characters.
Steve Solomon is the sharpest lawyer wver to barely graduate from Key West School of Law. Victoria Lord is fresh from Yale, toiling for a ambitious D.A. and engaged.
When these two take on the steamiest murder trial of the century, the case is sure tomake headlines scream===and sparks fly. Now with Solomon inventing his own laws and Lord sticking to the real ones, they most solve the case before they end up in ruin, in jail.....or in love.
This is not only a thriller it is also a funny romantic relationship.
Steve Solomon is the sharpest lawyer ever to barely graduate from Key West School of Law. Victoria Lord is fresh from Yale, toiling for an ambitious D.A., and engaged. When these two take on the steamiest murder trial of the century, the case is sure to make headlines scream - and sparks fly. Now, with Solomon inventing his laws and Lord sticking to the real ones, they must solve the case before they end up in ruin, in jail...or in bed.
Solomon vs. Lord is one of the funniest, laugh-out-loud books that I have read in a long time. This novel features a criminal trial at which a talking parrot is called upon to testify, lots of avocados, an idiot savant who makes anagrams out of the names of everyone he meets, and a murder mystery. Paul Solomon and Victoria Lord, both lawyers, are the main characters. The opening scene finds them held for contempt in adjacent jail cells, and from that moment on, the tension and energy of their love/hate relationship makes the novel sizzle. Fans of John Grisham or Carl Hiaasen should try some of Paul Levine's novels.
great book -enjoyed it throughly fast paced but not to fast so that you have to go back and reread certain parts - right balance of humour, crime and a little romance thrown in for good measure reminds me of a less funny more drama less blood carl hiassen
