Paul Levine is a classic Florida author of the John D. McDonald ilk. In fact, I would say that of McDonald's "descendants" ( Carl Hiassen, James W Hall, Randy Wayne White, Edna Buchanon, Les Stansiford), Levine comes closest to the feel of McDonald's Travis McGee Novels.
Fool Me Twice is a typical Paul Levine novel in the Jake Lassiter series. As such, it features ex-Miami Dolphin Linebacker and night law school graduate Lassiter linping through Coconut Grove, practicing low end criminal defence, swilling Grolsch beer, while dropping frequently hilarious one-liners right and left.
Sure, there is a story, and an unlikely plot twist or two, but mostly you read these books for the humor, the social commentary, and the pleasure of light clever writing.
TAKE THIS BOOK TO THE BEACH, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A JOHN D. MCDONALD FAN.
