Top crime fiction – More about Joel Goldman
Joel Goldman suffers the same rare movement disorder as Jack Davis, the star of his second thriller series, which lends authority and credibility to Jack’s condition. And he sets his Lou Mason and Jack Davis thrillers against the backdrop of Kansas City, his home town, in all its wonderful eccentricity and quirkiness.
From a personal perspective Goldman aims to live righteously, his phrase for living a moral life filled with purpose, meaning and accomplishment. His characters mirror this, and even the perpetrators of his elaborate and often evil crimes, although flawed, are human: frail, damaged and torn between good and bad.
Goldman delivers much more than brilliant plotting, incisive dialogue and gallows humor. Expect a well-rounded read with a thrill a minute and deeply satisfying conclusions that’ll leave you begging for more.
A few words from the author:
The Lou Mason series
“My first Lou Mason novel, Motion to Kill was released in 2002, an immediate success. Trial lawyer Lou made his second appearance during 2003 in The Last Witness, nominated for an Edgar award by the Mystery Writers of America. Cold Truth hit the shelves in 2004 and Deadlocked in 2005, nominated by the Private Eye Writers of America for a Shamus award.”
The Jack Davis series
“Former FBI Special Agent Jack Davis is the star of my second series of top crime fiction, beginning with 2008’s instant hit, Shakedown. The Dead Man was published in 2009 and No Way Out was released in 2010.”
Horror stories and anthologies
“My first horror novel, Freaks Must Die, came out in 2012, my contribution to The Dead Man series, created by best-selling US crime writers Lee Goldberg and Bill Rabkin. You can also catch my short story, Fire in the Sky, in the Top Suspense anthology: 13 Classic Stories by 12 Masters of the Genre.”
Introducing Alex Stone
“My latest novel centers on a female Public Defender whose character was inspired by my short story, Knife Fight, part of an anthology, The Prosecution Rests, published in 2009. Look out for Stone Cold, the first Alex Stone thriller, which will be released in the second half of 2012.”
