As with 'Bum Luck', 'Bum Deal' is more serious than previous Jake Lassiter books. The friendship between Jake, Solomon and Lord is front and center but now their friendship faces being on opposite sides of the courtroom. The reason they are is a fascinating train wreck of a case. Both Lassiter and Solomon are suffering angst because of it, albeit for different reasons.

Mixed in the courtcase and the friendships are Jakes existential worries about his own mortality.

'Bum Deal' is sad in a smart alec way that is vintage Jake Lassiter.

I repeat what I said before: Please write faster, Paul Levine. These three are some of my favorite characters, although there are others that need to return for a visit, as well. Try for a happy ending.
