    Ever ask yourself, do I really care what happens in this book? I asked this question a couple of times and the answer was, not really, but I kept reading it anyway. There was just enough suspense that kept me reading. The main character was similar to the Nelson DeMille guy, always making wisecracks which helped me stay with it. But overall it was just average. Sort of like watching an episode of Law And Order.

    I found Joel Goldman through Brash Books, and I'm glad I did. He tells a great, suspenseful story in words that just flow into my mind. I loved the wit and sarcasm of the main character, Lou Mason. The story was full of twists and surprises. The element of suspense hung heavy because someone was definitely trying to kill Lou. Most of the characters were people I wish I could have met, and the rest people I wish to never encounter. I saw the end coming, but was in suspense right up to the end.

    It makes me glad I no longer have to go away on corporate retreats! Mason has a lot to keep him on his toes over a couple of weeks. The ending wasn't what I expected, but it definitely leads me to want to read the next book in the series.

That feeling of absolute vulnerability and uncertainty is what graces Lou Mason. It is that rush, that excitement of knowing that the main character DOESN'T KNOW enough to protect himself and just enough to know he is in danger. As the story unfolds, Lou strikes out, makes mistakes, is lied to and mislead. His very relationships with others is either setting him up or helping him out. Even after you know what's going on, Lou is not certain if the journey was to his benefit or not. It is this multidimensionality that makes Lou feel a part of you as you read. He, like you, is not sure what is going to happen next. He, like you, wants to survive. He, like you, is not sure that he can surmount the challenges. Goldman writes in the between of what has happened, and what will happen. Whereas other crime novels have the main character be an amazing superhero, with all the needed tools, Lou is not only human, he's beyond human, with all the frailty and nobility that entails. Do yourself a favor and read this book, and every book by Goldman (His Jack Davis series is even more compelling). Even though I read these a little out of order, as soon as I read my first Goldman book, I bought the rest and enjoyed all of them.

    Great Legal Thriller/Mystery Novel I really hope Joel Goldman continues to write legal thrillers, and I hope he writes more about Lou Mason. "Motion to Kill" is as riveting and involved, and just as good as, as any Gresham thriller I have read. Darn good writing, characters develop in believable fashion as the story goes on, and spot-on most of the legal points, if I accurately remember my Crim-Pro and Ethics classes at NYLS almost three decades ago...I can't help but compare Goldman to Gresham: Great Legal Thriller/Mystery Novel I really hope Joel Goldman continues to write legal thrillers, and I hope he writes more about Lou Mason.

Now, I recognize the authenticity of Goldman's depiction of a junior partner. Goldman catches the real world of the law: black and white fades to grey, and billable hours rule the partnership. EXTREMELY GOOD, AUTHENTIC, ARTISTIC. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Great engrossing reading! This was a great introduction to a new series. Lou is a new partner in a Kansas City law firm. While on a weekend retreat, the head of the firm dies and Lou begins to investigate. The investigation leads to criminal conspiracies, money laundering, hit men, drugs and murder. It was a fun, fast read and a great start to a series. Lou is bold and brassy, which adds to the fun. Thanks to the author and publisher for an ARC for an honest review.

    Not a bad Joel Goldman thriller. A few twists make it a little more interesting than the average 'who done it'.

When Lou's partner Richard Sullivan is killed, Lou is among the suspects. Then Lou is assigned the job of going through his dead partner's files to find out what kind of funny business was going on between the firm Lou works for and a client, O'Malley, who is under criminal investigation. Only Lou is good at his job and begins to find out more than anyone wanted him to know, as the body count rises so does Lou's evidence of what was really going on, making him a risk who simply has to put out of circulation. Can you survive knowing too much? Joel Goldman does a great job taking Lou Mason from the world of ties and business suits to the kick-ass world of mobsters, murder and self-defense. Lou thought he knew his limits before, could be he was wrong as he gets a new education in life the way the dark side lives it. The mob is embroiled in everything Lou is trying to uncover. Everywhere he turns he discovers new signs of their corruption of people he previously thought beyond their reach. Motion to Kill is rich drama set in against the background of a law firm that may have taken part in some illegal activities to help a client out. The lead partner of the firm turns up dead days after asking Lou Mason to lose some critical documents so they don't turn up in the criminal investigation Lou is defending. Lou said no, but now his boss is dead and the evidence points to Lou as one of the suspects. It's in Lou's best interest to discover the killer but along the way he finds out more than he thought possible and he becomes a target for more than one murderer. Goldman does a good job of developing the tension in this somewhat complicated story line. The clues are all there for the conclusion so it makes perfect sense once it comes along. The use of foreshadowing is perfect, just enough to make you satisfied that you guessed the direction the story was heading but not so much that it gives the story away. You have to keep reading to discover if your theories are right and even then Goldman keeps throwing in surprises until the very end. Overall it was a really entertaining read and I recommend it.

There are twists and surprises at every turn. I was continually hook into all the new secrets and details being revealed. Lou made for a decent investigator. He was through, and realistic. He didn't get access to anything unbelievable, and his actions stayed within character. His growing violence was a little concerning, but still made sense. It made me want to know if he would be able to pull himself back and regain his balance. The one thing I didn't really buy into was the multiple romance angles. None seemed believable, or even like much of anything. I could believe a bit of flirting, but everything beyond that felt flat. There were even a few times when the scene ended and I had to re-read to figure out that it was supposed to be a suggestive scene. Overall, this was an exciting read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. A word of warning, there is some violence, but nothing too gory.

Lou needs to find out who murdered one of the partners before he becomes the next dead body. I find it funny what sticks in my mind and helps me love a character more. I connected to Lou over coffee. In one part of the book there is a line that says "Mason had never developed a taste for coffee and still felt like a kid when he was the only one sucking on apple juice." I loved Lou a little bit more at this point. Like Lou I never developed a taste for coffee. My kind of guy. This book kept me on the edge of my seat with all the twists and turns to the plot. There were many characters on this canvas who played their roles well. I was guessing up to the very end as to who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. The story took off from the start and never slowed down. I enjoyed reading this book and will most likely be back for more.

At first Lou is just seeking justice and then he is trying to stay alive on this quick-witted, fast-action thriller. It's different than most in this genre as it's a wonderful blend of police procedural and law. There's money at stake, a big name law partner has died, others may be next, and Lou decides to team up with the Sheriff to expedite things. There is no author to compare Joel Goldman to because this really was so unique and as far as one could get from a stereotypical thriller in any sub genre. And of course the two intelligent, attractive women trying to get Lou into bed just adds to the excitement. Extortion, explosions, murder, FBI, a hot sheriff and hot law partner, and sex. It seems damn perfect to me.

The first murder leads to more murder, attempted murder, beatings, job loss, uncovered secrets, and vandalism among other things. Mason is forced to face a position he’d never dreamed possible - deciding in a split second if he can take another life to save his own. Goldman weaves twists and turns through Motion to Kill that at times leaves the reader wondering if the book is about to end and who can be trusted. Then he jerks, in an engaging way, the reader in another direction opening a whole new line of possibilities for the story to go. Mason’s friend, Blue, has a tendency to steal scenes with a quiet, unfaltering ease and confidence that is the perfect counterpoint to Lou’s insecurity and tendency to flounder. Goldman leaves the leader satisfied that justice is served but wanting more of Mason and Blue in Motion to Kill.

A Motion To Kill takes you on an odyssey to find a killer and along the way helps Lou Mason discover himself.

    Another author I never heard of and discovered buy chance. (Pun intended) I admit I judge books by their cover, sue me I'm a graphic designer so a good cover can lead to me shelling out the coin. (The specific cover they show here stinks compared to the one I saw when I bought it BTW.) Grisham has made a career of legal thrillers and this author takes it to a new grittier level. Fun stories.

How convenient of all places for his body to come up while the law firm was trying to enjoy a relaxing weekend of golf and seminars at their retreat. The nerve of this guy to come up dead, some thought! Lou Mason, also an attorney working at this law firm, had too many questions and not enough answers, but one thing will become very clear to the reader, Lou was not one to mess around with. When you get right down to it, he was the man you’d want on your side. Partners were dropping dead at every turn and Lou could not figure out why? As you journey with him, it soon becomes apparent that there are some very shady dealings being dealt under the guise of “client work” being performed. Oh, to be sure, there was plenty of work being done, but none of it had to do with the law. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I absolutely loved this book! It was Law & Order meets The Sopranos. I could one hundred percent see this as a motion picture. In fact, I’m shocked it hasn’t been contracted to be one. Lou Mason was one tough cookie! He didn’t stop until he had the answers he was seeking and he had a way of making people talk! Oh yes, this is my type of legal thriller. It gives the reader the ride of your reading life, and that’s what entertaining books are supposed to do, and this one did it! Awesome read!

Case in point, is that Pope County is in Arkansas not Missouri. But, this certainly didn't detract from a good story. Great effort with the beginning of a series. While not a fan of the genre, Mr. Goldman may have won me over with his protaganist enough for me to read the second in this series.

    Fast-paced and enjoyable I enjoy reading suspense thrillers, and this first book in the Lou Mason Thrillers did not disappoint. With characters who were well-developed and a plot that woven back on itself time and time again, watching the pieces fall into place was exhilarating. Each time I thought I had a piece of the puzzle figured out, the author threw in a new twist. I enjoyed reading this book and hope to get my hands on future titles in this series!

    "Deception, Murder, And A Little Romance" Robert Sullivan was at the top of his profession at a law firm in Kansas City. But then his body is found washed up on the shore of Missouri Lake. There's a lot of corruption, sex, organized crime for trial lawyer Lou Mason to work through. Then another law partner is found dead with his neck broken. This is an intense novel, fast moving, and exciting to read. Very entertaining.

    Not bad, as legal thrillers go I've been burnt out on the legal thriller, but this one was okay. Not sure that I'm interested in reading more with these characters, but perhaps someday. Oh, and by the way, Lake of the Ozarks is in central, not southern MO. Although it is south of Kansas City. But maybe that was meant to be fictitious.

    As good as Grisham and may be better This is the 2nd Lou Mason novel I've read and I just purchased a 3rd. For $3 you get engaging characters, good stories and a lawyer/protagonist you can actually like. Goldman writes law novels as well as Grisham. Personally I prefer Goldman. Go for the $3 and you will retain Lou Mason as your favorite literary attorney

    How did this get published? This book has some silly thesis about some mafia connections laundering money, a protagonist that goes through an incredible amount of trauma and never once had a scratch on him. Kills some one and just takes off and never reports it and on and on and on. It's ridiculous. Do not waste your time reading it. Horrible.

    When I was through the first few chapters I thought that I was on to a really good book but then it bogged down. The author introduces too many characters and varies his use of their names from first, last and even nick names. I found this confusing. The end is a bit hard to believe and the chief assassin's character change is incredible.
