The author of 20 novels, Paul Levine won the John D. MacDonald fiction award and was nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, Shamus and James Thurber prizes. A former trial lawyer, he wrote 21 episodes of the CBS military drama “JAG” and co-created the Supreme Court drama “First Monday” starring James Garner and Joe Mantegna.
The international bestseller TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD was his first novel. He is also the author of the Solomon vs. Lord series and several stand-alone thrillers.
His most recent series brings together Lassiter with Solomon and Lord. Their first joint outing was BUM RAP, a number one bestseller in the Amazon Kindle Store. In a starred review, Booklist described the novel as a “delicious mix of thriller and comic crime novel.” In the latest series entry, BUM LUCK, Lassiter bizarrely threatens to kill his own client. Does the linebacker-turned-lawyer suffer from fatal chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.) stemming from his football career?
A graduate of Penn State and the University of Miami Law School, Paul Levine divides his time between Miami, Florida and Santa Barbara, California.
