5.0 out of 5 stars South Florida legal mystery, 3 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story is set in South Florida. A make-it-up as you go along,irreverent lawyer with a coterie of fringe clients(including sexy,twin"models",con men;illegal importers of wild birds etc) defends his hapless clients with a series of legal shenanigans that could only be accepted in South Florida.He has no money to speak of,but an adoring nephew who is autistic,and whom he loves and cares for.
Opposite him is an uptight,by the book young prosecutrix,whom he enjoys tormenting with his legal tricks.She finally cracks and ends up in jail for contempt.The story then revolves around a sensational murder trial where they have to work on the same side(as she has been fired for ending up in jail) to defend a young wife who is the prime suspect in the death of her much,much,older husband.
There are many laugh-aloud moments,as Solomon deals with his nephew(who has an amazing ability to say the wrong thing at the most awkward moment);his clients;the police;his sister;his father and of course....Victoria Lord the ex-prosecutrix now working with him most reluctantly .They are at each other's throats constantly,so you just know that they have feelings for each other.
Where does it all lead?Buy the book from amazon,and enjoy the fireworks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solomon vs. Lord, 8 Oct 2007
By 
Tami Brady "Tami Brady: Transition-Empowermen... (Calgary, Canada) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Victoria Lord has never met a man more irritating. The normally put together lawyer sits in a jail cell with a contempt of court ruling all because of Steve Solomon, his taunting, and his ability to get her hopping mad. How dare he give her advice about how to become a better lawyer when he can't keep himself out of jail. A strange twist of fate, one very bizarre murder trial, one custody battle, and a new outlook will either destroy Victoria's career or give her the life she's always wanted. One thing is for sure, Victoria's life is never going to be the same.

Solomon vs. Lord contains a number of sub-stories and mini-plots that add to the brilliance and depth of the main story. The events surrounding the murder trial are downright hilarious yet the characters have to build a case out of almost no evidence which creates a lot of tension and frustration. The side story about Steve's nephew is touching and inspirational despite it's horrific nature showing a side that no one would have guessed that Steve Solomon could possess. Victoria has her own stories and her own issues particularly with her vegetable obsessed fiancée.

I got this book as a freebie and I really enjoyed it. I especially loved the banter between Solomon and Lord and it made me laugh out loud at times. I think I am a little bit in love with Solomon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 1 Oct 2012
This review is from: SOLOMON vs. LORD (Solomon vs.Lord Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I like Levine as an author and am surprised I only discovered his works recently.

Here he pairs two very different people in an unlikely relationship. Steve is quite a casual and annoying defence lawyer who doesn't mind bending the rules. Victoria is the conscientious prosecutor who loses her job to later team up with Steve in defence work. They annoy the hell out of each other while working together in defence of a young beauty accused of murdering her wealthy, older husband. Steve is also very much pre-occupied with retaining custody of his autistic nephew, whom the State wants to place into care.

The plots are quite sound and interesting, although purists may be annoyed by a crucial bit of evidence emerging late. There is good banter and the courtroom scenes are good, even if somewhat artificial at times. I liked the characters, the relationships, the humour and the stories - Levine gets all the elements to work together to produce an entertaining read.

This is not a complex and intriguing legal novel, but it is an immensely readable and colourful book which will encourage you to seek out the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a good laugh out loud book!, 5 Sep 2012

Solomon vs Lord - Paul Levine

Steve Solomon & Victoria Lord first meet when they are on opposite sides of the law in a case which involves the import of illegal birds - both are thrown into the "cooling pens" because of their outbursts. When Victoria is fired from the state prosecution service, she joins ranks with Steve to help a friend accused of murdering her husband.

While they are fighting the court case, they also have to fight a nasty custody battle as Steve is trying to get custody of his nephew Bobby - a wonderful young boy who is autistic and a savant.

I couldn't believe that I gave the book five stars because it is normally not my type of book. A romance! (Will they? Won't they? - good grief just tell her you love her please!) but it was such a lovable book full of some wonderful characters. I loved Bobby solving anagrams. I loved Steve's wilfulness; Victoria's uptightness; just a lovely book to read on the beach. I just wonder what people thought of me lying there laughing out loud but there are so many very funny moments - I couldn't help it!
