: If you like Scott Turow’s riveting legal thrillers and Catherine Coulter’s nerve racking suspense stories, you’ll love Deadlocked! Joel Goldman’s latest Lou Mason Thriller! "A certain death penalty case and execution is the catalyst in Joel Goldman's legal thriller Deadlocked. The fourth Lou Mason case is the best and most thought provoking and when the action starts it is a real page turner delivered by a pro." Mystery Scene Magazine This is one of the finest legal thrillers I've read in years. Deadlocked is on a par with anything written by John Grisham or Scott Turow. Its attention to characters, smooth dialog, well-crafted plot and superb pacing make me want to read each of Goldman's previous three novels. Al Nye The Lawyer Guy Ryan Kowalczyk denied slaughtering a young couple even after his best friend turned against him, sending him to death row. When Lou Mason is hired to prove Ryan’s innocence, a killer does whatever it takes to stop Mason. The deeper Mason probes, the greater the danger—until the past and present collide in an explosion of deceit, corruption, and murder. Think Scott Turow and Catherine Coulter at their page-turning best and you’ll have Joel Goldman in Deadlocked! "In his fourth novel, attorney-turned-author Joel Goldman delivers a well-plotted legal thriller that takes an insightful look at capital punishment and questions of guilt. Deadlocked's brisk pace is augmented by Goldman's skill at creating realistic characters and believable situations." Oline H. Cogdill, Orlando Sun Sentinel Joel Goldman is a 'sleeper' in modern murder mystery novels. With Baldacci, Connolly, Grisham, Sandford, Flynn and others hitting the bestseller list regularly, Joel Goldman belongs there as well. Once he is read by more they will become fans and he a household name. He writes with the best of them and I read them all!
