Book Summary:
Just as washed-up criminal defense attorney, life-long Deadhead (nickname "The Zen Man"), and current PI Rick Levine decides to get relicensed as a lawyer, he's charged with killing one and ends up in the slammer with a half-mil bail.

Book Review:
This well written book was an easy read. I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. The characters are interesting with good back-stories. This fast pace book had many twists and turns; never having a slow moment. The end was kind of predictable but still a good book to read. 

I recommend this book for those who are fans of mysteries. 


Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
