Title: The Deep Blue Alibi
Author: Paul Levine
Stars: 4.5 out of 5
I always enjoy reading a book by this author and this one was no exception. He not only has a fine tuned sense of humor but is able to put it to paper for the reader to appreciate and chuckle over. This is saying a lot as the book is a murder/legal mystery which is solved quite nicely by Solomon and Lord who are lawyers who play to win both in and out of the courtroom.
I have rated this book 4.5 stars.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
They are Florida’s most mismatched legal duo—one a glamorous Miami blue blood, the other a Coconut Grove beach bum. And when they get together, you can throw every law right out the window….
What do you get when you mix beautiful people, family secrets, and a yacht washed up on Sunset Key with a hundred grand in cash and a dying man? If you’re Steve Solomon, you see a case that can get Solomon & Lord off the ground. If you’re Victoria Lord, you see a golden opportunity to go out on your own. With her uncle a murder suspect and her hunky ex-boyfriend back in the picture, Victoria is pushing to take control as Solomon struggles to keep from losing it.
As an explosive trial looms, they’re fighting against time, the law, and each other—to expose a killer who came to paradise…and hasn’t left.
