Paul Levine has a new book, Bum Rap. It features his series character Jake Lassiter meeting his other series characters Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord. Steve is arrested for murder and Jake takes the case. Having a lawyer for a client isn’t something that appeals to Jake.
So far, I am enjoying it. It had been a while since I last read a book by Levine but he does a good job reintroducing, or introducing, the characters. I think people unfamiliar with Levine’s earlier books can enjoy it.
The book got good reviews from Booklist and Publisher’s Weekly. Reader reviews are mostly good.
