Solomon vs Lord: “Hilarious, Touching, Entertaining.”

Meet the mismatched legal team Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord. He’s an ethically-challenged, Coconut Grove beach bum who lives by his own set of rules, Solomon’s Laws. When the law doesn’t work, work the law. She’s a straight-laced Coral Gables blueblood who does everything by the book. In four gripping legal thrillers that make up the Solomon vs. Lord series, the duo battles and banters in the jailhouse, the courtroom…and sometimes the bedroom.

The squabbling pair have a love-hate relationship but they make a surprisingly good team – even if there’s a chance they’ll kill each other while the jury’s out. Sparks fly and the dialogue sizzles in the series that has rewarded crime author Paul Levine with numerous literary nominations, including the Edgar Allan Poe Award, the Macavity prize, the International Thriller Writers award, and the James Thurber Humor Prize.
