Product Description

"The Road to Hell" collects four stories by Paul Levine, the Edgar-nominated author of the bestselling Jake Lassiter series. Levine's heroes travel dark and dangerous paths as they confront devilish and powerful villains. The journeys are by land, by sea, and in one case, perhaps only in the mind.

In "El Valiente en el Infierno," (The Brave One in Hell), a 13-year-old Mexican boy tells his own story as he makes a treacherous midnight crossing into California in search of his father. The boy's courage is tested when he runs into two gun-toting American vigilantes, and the confrontation will change all of them forever.

"Development Hell" imagines a pitch session in which a bedraggled Edgar Allan Poe squares off with a slick Hollywood producer who wants to make a cheesy slasher flick out of "The Pit and the Pendulum."Bookgasm praised the story as "going straight to the funny bone."

In "A Hell of a Crime," a prosecutor prepares for a homicide trial while being pestered by his domineering mother, a famous lawyer herself. Just what role did she play in the murder? And how is the prosecutor's enigmatic wife involved in the case? 

Two of the author's best-loved characters, mismatched law partners Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord, appear in "Solomon & Lord: To Hell and Back."  Steve says he's going fishing with Manuel Cruz, a sleazy con man. Victoria knows that Cruz is an unlikely fishing buddy. So just what is Steve up to now? Something between mischief and murder.

The book also contains an excerpt from "Solomon vs. Lord," the first novel of the bestselling series of legal thrillers. A quick synopsis: Victoria Lord follows all the rules. Steve Solomon makes up his own. When they defend an accused murderer, they'll either end up in ruin, in jail...or in bed. Here's what number one bestselling author Harlan Coben had to say: "Hiaasen meets Grisham in the court of last retort. A sexy, wacky, wonderful thriller with humor and heart."

Finally, an excerpt of "Mortal Sin," one of the award-winning Jake Lassiter novels, is also included in the collection. This time, the linebacker-turned-lawyer has a dangerous conflict of interest. He's sleeping with Nicky Florio's wife...and defending the mob-connected millionaire in court.  One false move, and Jake will be gator bait. "Recalling the work of Carl Hiaasen, this thriller races to a smashing climax." - Library Journal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable short stories Feb. 24 2011
By Strapped-4-Cache - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has introduced me to another author that will soon be taking up a lot of space in my "To Be Read" list.

Short stories are often underrated. These types of stories fill a niche that many readers like me need - quick reads that provide decent character development, a good plot and a swift resolution to the issue at hand. This book offers four such stories to anyone looking for them.

The stories present an interesting variety of characters and situations in which they find themselves. The length of the stories tends to increase through book, so a reader can pick a story of appropriate length given the time available to read. The author has also included a portion of "Mortal Sin" at the end of the book, and after reading it I admit that I'll probably end up buying the book to finish that story as well.

The book is a good value for people looking for a collection of short stories with a bit of a twist at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars FALSE DAWN & 3 OTHERS Feb. 11 2012
By F. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
WHEN JOHN D. MACDONALD DIED AND AFTER I HAD READ AND RE-READ TRAVIS AND COLLECTED ALL OF THEM, I WISHED THAT I COULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE UP THE MANTLE AND WRITE LIKE HIM. THEN I FOUND PAUL LEVINE AND LOVE HIS STYLE. ONLY THING I WISH HE WOULD DO IS GET JAKE TO KICK ASS LIKE TRAVIS DID INSTEAD OF GETTING BEAT UP. OTHERWISE I AM ON MY QUEST NOW TO FIND THE NEXT JAKE SERIES SO I CAN RELIVE MY BELOVED TRAVIS. LEVINE IS AN OUTSTANDING WRITER, CAN'T IMAGINE HOW IN THE WORLD HE EVER COMES UP WITH EVERYTHING HE DOES. KUDOS TO PAUL LEVINE. I ALSO READ FLESH & BONE, NIGHT VISION AND SPEAK FOR THE DEAD.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time I have read this author... Feb. 20 2011
By avid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first book by this author I have read. It was great content - interesting stories, all with a twist at the end. And they were, in my personal opinion, very well written.
With so much out there to read it is hard to decide on which authors to choose when picking new ones. Based on this book, I will now read his other books. Always great to find such good new (to me) books!
