Overview

Hutch is a newspaper columnist, single dad . . . and last defense against a lunatic's high-tech killing machine.

Special Forces veteran-turned-billionaire Brendan Page has some dirty not-so-little secrets. He's built an empire on supplying futuristic weapons and highly trained soldiers to the world's most powerful armies.

But he's saved his most destructive weapons for himself.

John Hutchinson, a Denver newspaper columnist and avid bow-hunter, has figured out the truth about Brendan Page and is determined to bring him down. But he's up against a warmonger linked to assasinations, kidnappings, and terrorist activities.

Hutch quickly uncovers a plan that seems unfathomable in its recklessness and loss of life. Yet he's just one man up against impossible odds--with no Plan B. Thankfully, it's just the kind of environment Hutch thrives best in . . . if he can survive the next three days.

Deadlock will grab you from the riveting first page to its white-knuckle climax.

"With a blistering pace and irresistable characters, Deadlock is the best of high-octane suspense."

- Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Spymaster

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The violent duel between idealistic journalist John Hutchinson and insane, megalomaniacal military industrialist Brendan Page continues in Liparulo's formulaic sequel to 2007's Deadfall. During their previous clash, Hutch killed Brendan's son Declan, who had used a laser cannon to terrorize a small town in Saskatchewan. Unable to convince the authorities in the U.S. and Canada that Brendan was behind the attack, Hutch has recommitted himself to getting the goods on his mortal enemy. When Brendan's forces abduct Hutch's young son, Logan, from Hutch's Colorado home, the reporter must battle hordes of foes in an attempt to rescue Logan. Fans of James Bond movies may appreciate the bad guy's grandiose schemes and the hero's many hairbreadth escapes, but readers who want more than clichés in their action fiction will have to look elsewhere.
