KILL ALL THE LAWYERS by Paul Levine
After serving his six-year sentence, "Dr. Bill" had seemingly reformed, now a popular self-help author and radio host. But when he starts badmouthing Solomon on the air, Steve fears Kreeger has learned what went on behind the scenes of his case, that Steve believed his client guilty of murder and shared evidence with the prosecution to put Kreeger away.
At 352 pages, KILL ALL THE LAWYERS is the shortest book in the series, but like the other two, it is expertly paced. I don't think it could get more harrowing, with Kreeger turning Steve's every good intention against him in a bid to tear apart his life with Victoria Lord and his nephew Bobby.
One mark of great characters is the range of stories they allow you to tell, from lightly comedic to absolutely grave. I was right there with them.
UPDATE: All four books in the Solomon vs. Lord series are now available for Amazon Kindle.
