The fourth Lou Mason thriller
Crime writers favourites
Ryan Kowalczyk denies murdering a young couple in cold blood, but his best friend says he did it. It’s enough to send him to death row, and when Lou Mason is hired to prove Kowalczyk’s innocence the real killer is forced to take a stand, doing whatever it takes to stop Lou dead in his tracks. The more Lou uncovers, the greater the danger… until the past and present collide.
Set in Kansas City, Goldman’s hometown, Deadlocked is packed with accomplished prose, beautifully written at a thrillingly fast pace. If you love Scott Turow’s riveting legal thrillers and Catherine Coulter’s tales of suspense, you’ll adore Deadlocked. Expect an explosive tale of fear, deceit, corruption and murder – a genuine crime writers favourite – and you won’t be disappointed!

Praise for Deadlocked
“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
“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
