Crime fiction novelist Paul Levine worked as a news reporter, law professor, and trial lawyer before becoming a full-time writer. His 18 books, mostly legal thrillers, have been translated into 21 languages. His two popular series are known by the main characters’ names: “Jake Lassiter” and “Solomon vs. Lord.”

paulBook 1 of “Solomon vs. Lord” tops today’s Buffet. In this funny, fast-paced thriller, circumstances force two lawyers with opposing personalities — by-the-book Victoria Lord and anything-goes Steve Solomon — into defending a “grieving” widow who’s been charged with murdering her wealthy husband during a kinky sexcapade.

Reminiscent of the classic Hepburn-Tracy screwball comedies, Solomon vs. Lord has been nominated for the Thurber Prize for American Humor and the Edgar and Macavity awards.

After studying journalism at Penn State University, Paul worked as a newspaper reporter in Florida before graduating cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law. He was a practicing lawyer before becoming a novelist, and at age 51 launched his Hollywood writing career. He wrote 19 scripts for the CBS military series JAG, which aired from 1995 to 2005.

Paul’s most recent book, Lassiter, is slated for an April release, but is already available for download on Kindle.

Katrina Barksdale is a sexy former figure skater charged with killing her very wealthy, very kinky husband.

With all three tangled in Miami’s steamiest trial of the century, the case is sure to make sparks fly, headlines scream — and opposites attract.
