Lassiter & Lord defend Solomon

BUM RAP is a good legal thriller with weak narration. In this novel Jake Lassiter with the help of Victoria Lord defends Steve Solomom (who is Victoria Lord's law partner and fiance) on a murder charge. Bum Rap is a fun little novel.

Narration ruined the Audible version for me

I both read and listened to this book, which is something I love about Whispersync. I love Paul Levine novels, but this narration made the book really unenjoyable and I eventually gave up the narration and just read it. The narrator has almost no vocal variety and that disappoints me, since I love this author.
