Only two kinds of people know the exact date and time they'll die - suicides and death row inmates.
Ryan Kowalczyk has spent the last 15 years on death row. Like every other death row inmate, he clung steadfastly to his claim of innocence. Accused of brutally beating two young parents to death with a baseball bat, while their 3 year-old child slept under a blanket in the back seat of the car, no one felt sorry for Kowalczyk, especially Detective Harry Ryman who arrested Ryan for the crime.
After Ryan is executed, his mother, Mary, hires Mason to prove her dead son's innocence and build a case against the man she believes is the actual murderer; her son's best friend. As Mason delves deeper into the case, he journeys further into danger and a dark world rife with fear, deceit, corruption and murder.
If you enjoy the riveting legal thrillers of Scott Turow and the nerve-wracking suspense of Catherine Coulter, you'll love Deadlocked, the fourth in Goldman's action-packed Lou Mason series.

"Lou Mason's best outing...very satisfying and highly recommended." ~Lee Child, Bestselling Author of The Jack Reacher Series
"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
"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!" ~Deane Story
