This is a solid entry into the series. It is a discussion on the meaning of truth, wrapped in a action packed thriller.It examines the length it is acceptable to stretch to achieve justice. Steve is the main character in this one since it is his past catching up with him. He is getting all the PR he can handle from a local radio host but none of it good. He helped put the man into jail years before, which is a problem since he was the man's defense lawyer. That would cause hard feelings with most people, and this radio host is a well known psychiatrist and author who is not going to let Steve off the hook. Steve must solve exactly how he got away with murder in the past to prevent more murders in the present, espcecially his own.
This one includes the great line by Steve's dad "lawyerin's like playing poker with ideas." ( )

I love this series. Victoria does get a bit tiresome in her constant hedging and worrying, but the others more than make up for it. Her mother is particularly adorable in this episode. I hope Levine keeps writing this series for a long time. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440242754, Mass Market Paperback)

They’re the legal world’s oddest couple—a shorts-and-sandals beach bum and a Coral Gables blue blood. Maybe the only thing keeping them from killing each other is that they’re on the same side.…

It starts with a 300-pound marlin stuck in his front door. Even by South Florida standards, where murderers outnumber mosquitoes, this registers as weird. And it’s not long before Steve Solomon figures out who’s making the bizarre threats. But how can he explain to his partner why an ex-client wants him dead? Victoria Lord was used to Steve’s cutting legal corners to win, but breaking the law to lose was downright unethical, even for Steve. Now Solomon & Lord is being bashed on local radio and a celebrity shrink with a homicidal me-first philosophy wants to be Steve’s new best friend. With a killer on the loose and legal disaster looming, is Steve’s lover and law partner about to walk out on him? Is this the end of Solomon & Lord?

They are the legal world's oddest couple: a shorts-and-sandals beach bum and a Coral Gables blue blood. The only thing keeping them together is that they're on the same side. Why does an ex-client want to kill Steve Solomon? Who doesn't want to kill a lawyer? Still, a 300-pound marlin stuck in your front door is a weird death threat, even by south Florida standards. How can Steve Solomon explain to his partner why an ex-client wants him dead? When Victoria Lord learns the reason, she's angry enough to murder her law partner, too, or at least break up Solomon & Lord. But while a psychopathic ex-con comes between the squabbling Miami lawyers, his real target catches them both off guard.… (more)
