Joel Goldman: Motion to Kill

Click to see in Amazon
Motion To Kill  is a knockout legal thriller
I am always on the lookout for a good Indie legal/crime thriller and Motion to Kill by  Joel Goldman fits the bill. It has been compared to John Grisham and Michael Connelly, but it is good enough to stand out on its own.

This is Joel Goldman's debut legal thriller introducing attorney Lou Mason (not Perry Mason!).  It is a fast paced, page-turner mystery thriller with a legal background.

Lou Mason is a partner in a law firm where both the principal and his closest partner are murdered. An unscrupulous major client threatens the existence of the firm and Lou gets involved in preserving both the firm and his own life.

The plot is extremely complex, well crafted and rewarding with plenty of action and thrills.  I have only marked it down to 4 stars because at the end of the book I was left with a couple of unanswered questions from key parts of the plot.

Lou Mason is a great new character who features in several later books, which I am looking forward to reading.
