"Kill All the Lawyers"
Author: Paul Levine
Published: September 1, 2006 by Bantam
Series Name: Solomon & Lord
Category: LEGAL THRILLER & COMIC MYSTERY
Main Character: They're the legal world's oddest couple, Steve Solomon, a shorts-and-sandals beach bum and Victoria Lord, a Coral Gables blue blood. Maybe the only thing keeping them from killing each other is that they're on the same side.
When Steve is awakened from a sound sleep beside his lover and law partner, Victoria, the last thing he expects is to find himself in a high-speed chase against dolphin kidnapping eco-terrorists on Jet Skis. But that's what you get when your nephew Bobby hangs out at water parks and speaks cetacean - a.k.a. dolphinese. By dawn, one person is dead and Steve has a new client: none other than one of the animal liberators. There's just one problem: Victoria is on the case too - the opposite side - as the prosecutor. How will Solomon and Lord do it? How will they litigate by day and - pardon the expression - copulate by night? And, who's really behind the dolphin kidnapping? Animal rights extremists? Or people far more ominous? (Nominated for the International Thriller Writers award). (Starred Review, Publishers Weekly).
