We have two crime novels this week that are set in Florida. Let's start with Paul Levine's Bum Rap. NFL linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter has had it with a legal system out of control, and he's thinking about leaving Miami and never looking back. Then he gets a call from Victoria Lord of hot local legal team Solomon & Lord. Her partner in life and law has been arrested for murder, and the only person who can clear him has fled. Now, Jake and Victoria have to track down the witness before she's roped in by the feds or eliminated by the Russian mob.
Or, you could win one of my favorite crime novels of the year, James O. Born's Scent of Murder. Deputy Tim Hallett has been assigned to a special K-9 unit, teamed with the best partner he ever had, a Belgian Malinois named Rocky. While searching for a kidnapper, Rocky locks on to the scent of a predator. And, the more Hallett digs, the more it seems to be connected to the case that nearly destroyed his career. With its focus on the K-9 team, it's a terrific crime novel.
