Synopsis

Kansas City trial attorney Lou Mason is back...and this time, it's personal. Hired to defend the accused murderer of a local lawyer and political fixer, Jack Cullan, he finds himself working for none otherthan his friend and landlord, ex-cop Wilson "Blues" Bluestone Jr. With private files that rivalled those of J EdgarHoover, Cullan had the goods on any number of Kansas City hight-rollers, from Mayor Billy Sunshine on down. But the homicide detective on the case has itin for Blues, who faces the death penalty if he's convicted. Digging deeper, Mason unearths the kind of secrets someone will do anything to keep. And as he closes in on a desperate killer who's leaving a bloody trail through very high places, Mason may be setting himself up as the next target.

Mehr über den Autor

Joel Goldman arbeitete 28 Jahre lang als Rechtsanwalt, bevor er Schriftsteller wurde. Der für den »Edgar« und den »Shamus« nominierte Autor schreibt intelligente, packende Thriller voller Atmosphäre und Sprachwitz in der Tradition von Michael Connelly, in denen er ganz nebenbei seiner Heimatstadt Kansas City ein Denkmal setzt.

In seinen drei spannenden Thriller-Serien, zu denen auch die Reihe um den Anwalt Lou Mason gehört, erschafft er liebenswerte Helden mit Ecken und Kanten, die sich für die Vergessenen und Rechtlosen einsetzen. Seine Romane wurden ins Japanische, Französische, Portugiesische und mit »Die Sünde des Schweigens« erstmals auch ins Deutsche übersetzt. Joel Goldman lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen zwei Hündinnen Roxy und Ruby in Kansas City, im Herzen der USA.

HASH(0x9db5ddd4) von 5 Sternen Sequel Time: The Last Witness 5. August 2003
Von Kevin Tipple - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It is very hard for an author to duplicate the power of the first novel. Sometimes the author can, and on rare occasion, exceed the first book. Joel Goldman certainly has managed to do so in this new sequel to his very enjoyable first book, Motion To Kill. As always, I recommend that any interested readers read the first book, which is mentioned occasionally in this sequel. Kansas City trial lawyer Lou Mason as well as most of the other characters are back in this novel. This time Lou Mason has to defend his friend, mentor and landlord, Wilson "Blues" Bluestone who has been accused of murdering Jack Cullan.
Jack Cullan was the mayor's lawyer as well as the political fixer for the powers that be as well as anyone else with enough need and money in Kansas City. Rumor had it that he had files on everyone in town and could have taught J. Edgar Hoover a thing or two in that area. When Cullan is found dead after a violent conformation with Blues in the bar Blues' owns, suspicion naturally falls on Blues.
But suspicion had lots of help and Blue and Lou realize a complex frame is underway. Not only does Lou have to fight Blues' case in court, he also has to stay alive on the wintry streets of Kansas City as various forces, for their own clashing reasons, seek to stop him one way or the other.
Once again, Joel Goldman weaves an interesting complex tale of intrigue, deceit and murder with the occasional dry humorous comment about the world and the legal profession. Unlike John Grisham, Joel Goldmoon, does not ever mount the soap box to lecture the reader on the evils of the legal profession and does not allow the occasional side comment to interfere with the flow of a good story. Tight writing, plenty of action and a very good twisting mystery puzzle make this another great book of his to read. With two done and two more featuring Lou Mason on the way, he soon should supplant Grisham at his own game and does it by writing a simply better book.

HASH(0x9db5de28) von 5 Sternen Grisham Meets Connelly 22. Juli 2011
Von Lee Goldberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Joel Goldman's LAST WITNESS deftly avoids the sophomore slump with this blistering, Edgar-nominated thriller featuring Kansas City attorney Lou Mason that will make you forget there was ever another literary lawyer named Mason. Like Motion To Kill, this is a knock-out, defining a new genre: the legal crime thriller. Think Grisham meets Connelly and you've got Goldman.

HASH(0x9ddec27c) von 5 Sternen Reasonably entertaining but highly forgettable 26. Februar 2004
Von Larry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Kansas City trial attorney Lou Mason is asked to defend an old friend, ex-cop Wilson "Blues" Bluestone who is accused of murdering a local political bigwig, Jack Cullan. The police feel they have a slam dunk case and are no longer actively investigating it. Therefore, Mason must investigate it himself to set his friend free. Pursuing the truth, however, takes him into contact with some unsavory characters and Mason soon sees his own life in danger.
One of the problems any mystery writer who is writing a story about an amateur detective must overcome is the justification for their character's investigation. What must also be addressed is why should their investigation prove any more successful than the police investigation? Joel Goldman accomplishes this in two ways. First, the police feel they have the murderer and stop the investigation. However, more importantly, he makes the politics such that corruption is the true culprit behind Blue's arrest and the corrupt officials shut the investigation down. Joel Goldman is a trial lawyer. With his main character also a trial lawyer, I was expecting a good solid legal thriller. A strong courtroom scene can add impact and another layer to the story. Instead we have a reasonably well told amateur detective story of no real significant worth. The story appears padded and the competently created characters are a bit too numerous. (A character list at the beginning might have helped.) This is a reasonably entertaining but highly forgettable mystery novel and, in actuality, a disappointing Edgar nominee.

It has been a few years since I have read a GOOD legal thriller.I moved on to fantasy and other genres.After devouring the fantasy world I found myself needing something different.So I went back to my old stomping grounds.I was surprised to find so much new talent.This book caught my interest and I purchased it.Lou Mason is a guy caught between the man he would like to be and the one he is.The law he practices and the laws he willing to break to find the truth.In this installment his friend Blues, finds himself arrested for murder.Lou runs to his defense.The only way to get Bluestone off is to find the real killer.Very little court room antics are played out in this thriller.,more detective work then anything else.The story is set in Kansas City in the middle of winter,a nice change from L.A. or new York City were most of these types of book is set.Lou finds himself up against old time politics,a fixer that has got himself murdered,a woman who has a past with some kinky pictures and little or no control of her inner demons and a very interesting reporter(newspaper woman) who has No interest in men.Mr. Goldman has blended all these characters together to create a novel that is very entertaining that has twist and turns to keep the most jaded reader interested.Very good work.I hope that Mr. Goldman can keep these books fresh and interesting,that he let's Lou grow as a man and a attorney.

HASH(0x9ddec630) von 5 Sternen Great read, look forward to more from the author 15. November 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lou Mason is out to prove his friend Blues is innocent of murder and finds complexity in the city politics, family relations, and more while he does it. A surprise ending really keeps things interesting. All in all a great legal/mystery thriller that is well worth the Kindle price.

I thought that the character development was quite good in this book, and actually plan to go back now and read the first book in the series to get more background. While there were a lot of characters involved, the author did a good job of making sure things were easy to follow. I especially enjoyed the interaction of Lou Mason and the reporter during the story and found that a nice addition to the story line.

I didn't quite give the book a full 5 stars as for me that represents a book that I just can't put down and stay up to late reading. I could put this book down, perhaps because it felt a little predictable at times (even though it turned out not to be in the end), and I just didn't feel the pace was such that I couldn't step away. However, this is still a great read and I highly encourage those who enjoy the genre to give it a try.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book for review, but am in no way associated with the author or publisher.
