Fun, fast reading legal mystery.

Where does Fool Me Twice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fool me Twice is a light reading courtroom drama. Jake Lassiter is a lovably flawed lawyer who unwittingly manages to get tangled in his clients' ploys sometimes. I especially love his courtroom banters. This book is not great literature but it is very enjoyable and fast listening. It ranks right in the middle of the books I've listened to so far.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fool Me Twice?

I especially liked the courtroom comfrontation between Jake Lassiter and Ms Barroso. It was like living a Perry Mason moment that rarely happens in real life but that we all dream about when we want to be able to prove something.

Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have listened to other Luke Daniels performances. This one is just as good as the others. He reads with dramatic effect without sounding affected. However, given that he has read so many of Levine's Jake Lassiter Series, you'd think he would lose the Mexican accent when he is pretending to speak Spanish like a Cuban. It is as distracting as hearing a Southern drawl on a character supposedly from New York. Also it would be nice if he practiced his Spanish words before he performed the book. Otherwise, he is very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Jake thought he was going to jail for life, I found it moving that he worried about what would happen to his newfound nephew.

A very entertaining tall tale!!

I have read/listened to virtually all of Paul Levine's legal thriller novels in both the Jake Lassiter and Solomon vs. Lord series. Fool Me Twice, set in Miami and Colorado, Is different, very different. The novel gets 5 stars not because of the quality of the story, but because of the sheer audacity of the author in telling such a tall take. As unlikely as the novel is, it is immensely entertaining. Luke Daniels narrates the story perfectly.

Great Book!

Once again Paul Levine delivers us a fantastic addition to this series. His main character, Jake is a criminal trial lawyer. This career choice as expected attracts all sorts of unsavory characters. Jakes kindness and nonjudgmental nature makes fertile ground for all sorts of escapades. Boundaries with some of his repeat offenders are crossed and Jake becomes more of their friend . They see him as the one who “saves them “ from the consequences of their transgressions. The fact that he is a young handsome ex football player adds to the chaos when a woman who gets involved. Funny and adventurous, don’t miss this book and series as the narrator, Luke Daniels delivers the characters superbly! I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Great plot, Jake can take a licking and keep on ticking. I was at the edge of my seat and couldn't put this one down. I would recommend this book.

Enjoyable

The book was enjoyable and at times very interesting. The end was irritating because I was waiting for the video camera to appear, why the child didn't speak up, I still don't know.
The narrator was excellent!

Just okay

The whole story felt unbelievable, especially the end. It was too long and should have ended when the truth was disclosed during the long, boring trial . I seriously doubt I'll ever read another book about Jake Lassiter.

This book was so interesting! The court room scenes and lawyer talk made it easy to recognize the characters personalities.

Engaging as ever!

these books are always a great read when you need something that is able to fully distract you from life's cares and woes. I can't remember the last name of the narrator right now but I know his first name is Luke and he does an amazing job of personifying Jake Lassiter, who is a hero that it seems like everyone could love! And of course there's always the dash of humor thrown in like good freshly ground pepper on a steak! Thanks for a fun read! I look forward to all the rest.
