More About the Author

Joel Goldman writes crime thrillers to die for. He's the Edgar and Shamus nominated author of three riveting thriller series.

Trial lawyer Lou Mason is a powerful, sexy man, more than six feet of hard muscle and once a keen rugby player. He's loyal and principled, both to a fault. His wry, sarcastic sense of humor and knack for top class banter are disarming, sometimes obscuring a recklessly brave spirit. Passionate about justice, he dives into the dark water, taking on cases other lawyers would run away from.

In Jack Davis' world only liars, drunks and guilty people shake uncontrollably. Then he joins their ranks. After 25 years as an FBI Special Agent, Jack is forced to retire because a mysterious movement disorder that makes him shake, sometimes bending him in half, sometimes strangling his speech. The cause and cure are unknown and Jack's condition colors his entire life. So much so that it ends his FBI career. In his new guise of part time private detective, he can't predict when the shakes will start... he just knows they will. Most of the time he just hopes he isn't holding a gun when it happens because crooks and killers don't give anyone a break.

Alex Stone is a Public Defender, devoted to representing people charged with a crime who can't afford a lawyer. More often that not, her clients and cases are lost causes. But the dismal odds only encourage her. Long, lean, and ropy from years of early-morning workouts, she knows only one way to live and one way to try a case: bear down and go all out.

She's determined to give her indigent clients the same measure of justice the rich and well bred receive. That's what everyone, guilty or innocent, highborn or low, deserves, and that's why she became a public defender. That higher calling matters more than whether her clients are guilty or innocent. But when the system fails to deliver justice, she makes certain justice is done.

If you like heroes you can care about, believe in and root for, you'll love Lou Mason, Jack Davis and Alex Stone. If you like crime thrillers with riveting suspense, jaw dropping twists and page-turning action, you'll love Joel Goldman's novels.

A well thought out solid thriller that had me gripped till the end. The writing was good the dialogues were realistic, although Lou Mason seemed to have a large amount of friends that are built like brick walls and the body count was extremly high at the end of it all.The only thing I thought did the story a little injustice was the Mason meets Abby instant love storyline. That was cheesy and not on par with the rest of the book, as if had to be fitted in there like a missing four cornered jigsaw piece being sqeezed into a three cornered hole. Aside from that I thought it was a great read and look forward to reading more by this writer. I received a free copy of this book for my review.

Well planned - well executed this book has been very well thought through. A really good story line that keeps you guessing. I could have done without Lou Mason falling in love - him still being an incomplete character would have done well for another book, and that is the point Lou Mason stands as a character well worth writing about again. So more please I really enjoyed this one.
