"The Corruption of Michael Levitt" is a rollicking ride through life seen through the eyes of Michael Levitt--Harvard Law School graduate and survivor of his Long Island childhood.

As Michael moves from the high pressure life of an associate in a prestigious New York law firm to the uncharted playground of Miami, the reader is caught up in Michael's personal and professional fast times. Readers will follow Michael through the maze that becomes his life—underworld business dealings, sex, drugs, friends and enemies, and ultimately murder- enjoying his perceptive, often hilarious view of his own situation.
Michael Levitt's universe is populated by flawed characters and aberrant behavior. The novel is a great read for anyone who just started out anywhere…For anyone who is a lawyer or knows, likes or hates lawyers… Anyone who wants to lose themselves in a decade long saga of hope, ambition, angst, sex, friendship and betrayal…For those who appreciate complex schemes and scams and enjoy laughing at the strangest circumstances...For People who enjoy an intelligent, entertaining and engrossing read and want a book they can’t put down.
The story, while totally unique, feels something like a John Grisham/Woody Allen Odyssey.
This novel had everything I hope for when I turn the first page of a new book. There wasn't a moment when I wasn't acutely interested in what was happening and I couldn't wait to turn the pages as Michael Levitt's life got more and more complex. Levine has put together something really special and I can't wait until his next book.
Gripping Legal Novel
What an interesting protagonist. Michael Levitt has an ability to laugh at himself, something we'd all benefit from. The situations he finds himself in are both desperate and hilarious at the same time if that's possible.
Reading this book was a blast. My friend convinced me to buy this book and claimed it could reinvigorate me and give me a second wind against the daily ins and outs of my life. It just seemed so real, a few times a bit over the top, but never intangible. Once you pick it up you won't put it down and I would be shocked if you didn't learn a thing or two by the end. Excellent use of my 3 bucks.
