Sink or Swim

A Novella by

"Solomn & Lord Sink or Swim" is a short story, featuring the two squabbling Miami lawyers from the four-book series nominated for the Edgar, International Thriller, Macavity and James Thurber awards.

The sharpest lawyer to barely graduate from Key West School of Law, Steve Solomon is a beer and burger guy. Fresh from Yale, Victoria Lord is a Chardonnay and pate gal. The squabblers extraordinaire can't agree on "good morning," but somehow they're a winning team in court.

Steve plans a mysterious boat trip, claiming he's going fishing with Manuel Cruz, but Victoria isn't buying it. She knows that Cruz stole a bundle from Steve's favorite client. Victoria hops aboard to find out just what Steve has planned. The answer could get them both killed.

Next are excerpts from three full-length novels of Paul Levine's critically acclaimed series:

"Solomon vs. Lord
," the first of the series, in which Steve and Victoria bicker and banter as they defend a beautiful young woman, accused of killing her wealthy, older husband. (Nominated for the Macavity and James Thurber awards);

"The Deep Blue Alibi" in which the legal duo defends Victoria's "Uncle Grif" on charges he killed a government official with a speargun. The setting is the Florida Keys with side trips to coral reefs and a nudist colony where all is more - and less - than it seems. (Nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award);

features linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter who retraces the steps of a model who went missing 18 years earlier...after their one-night stand. Just what does Jake know that he's not telling? It all comes together in a murder trial with an explosive ending.

"A funny, fast-paced legal thriller. The barbed dialogue makes for some genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Fans of Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry will enjoy this humorous Florida crime romp." -Publishers Weekly (reviewing "Solomon vs. Lord")

"The writing makes me think of Janet Evanovich out to dinner with John Grisham."

"The repartee between Solomon and Lord is some of the greatest dialogue I have read in years, and is reminiscent of the very best of Dave and Maddie in Moonlighting.'"
