Even though Levine’s latest is a clever thriller, one can't ignore William Dufris's focus on the real substance of this work—the characters. This is the third Solomon vs. Lord legal mystery. Steve Solomon is a lawyer who recently lost his defense of a murder case—deliberately—which is unusual since he’s been known to cheat to win. Now his client, a genius psychologist, wants to kill him. Solomon bears more resemblance to a beach bum than a lawyer. Victoria Lord, his partner and lover, is as straight as she can be. Dufris excels in portraying the pair as night and day. He also delivers a memorable performance of Steve's savant-like nephew, Bobby, a character in himself. Dufris makes this story a fast and light listen. His tongue-in-cheek characterizations—especially those of twin bimbos and even the killer—make listening a delight. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
