Florida’s most mismatched law partners are back in this Edgar-nominated tale. A Coral Gables blueblood, Victoria Lord plays by the rules. A Coconut Grove beach bum, Steve Solomon makes up his own, starting with: “When the law doesn’t work, work the law.”

The action starts when a boat runs aground in the Florida Keys. Aboard are a thousand hundred-dollar bills and two men, one shot by a speargun. The other man is Victoria’s “Uncle Grif,” who desperately needs a lawyer…or two. But Grif, charged with murder, is a lawyer’s worst nightmare, a client who keeps secrets. Just what is he planning in the Florida Keys and why would he kill an investigator for the Environmental Protection Agency?

The tale roams from the streets of Miami to a waterfront nudist colony to a Key West courtroom with Solomon and Lord – squabblers extraordinaire – fighting all the way. Will they succeed in defending Grif? Will they learn the truth? And will they end the case as partners and lovers or enemies and litigants?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Thank you Paul Levine for being so funny, so talented, so easy to read, so much more than I could ever ask. LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!!


The Deep Blue Alibi is fast-paced with a believable plot and the character development is awesome. The book draws you in and makes you feel like you are there watching the mystery unfold. Levine’s writing in this thriller is down-to-earth and capturing;it literally kept me awake reading much longer than I had intended….that good….an easy 5-star rating!


The Deep Blue Alibi was the first book by Paul Levine that I have read but it will not be the last. The plot kept me interested until the end. The characters, Solomon and Lord were my kind of lawyers, fun and interesting with just enough romance. I look forward to reading more in this series.


If you enjoy a Grisham-type novel and the irreverent Florida-based humor of Carl Hiaason and Tim Dorsey, you’ll enjoy this Paul Levine tale. This is my second (Kindle) read in the Solomon & Lord series and I have to say Levine creates extremely likable characters in Steve Solomon, his father and his nephew, Bobby and Victoria Lord. No doubt I’ll read the entire series.


DEEP BLUE ALIBI by Paul Levine is a winner all around. The mystery investigation and court scenes are intellectually stimulating and correct with a real “got chya” factor. The humor between the characters is sophisticated and down right raunchy at times, but wonderful to come across as the book unfolds.
