Joel Goldman makes a remarkable debut with this legal thriller packed with high-octane action and impeccably rendered detail. Only a few months after Lou Mason joins the Kansas City law firm Sullivan & Christenson, the firm's rainmaker and senior partner, Richard Sullivan, turns up dead. At the same time, Lou learns that the attorney general suspects the firm and one of its top clients of fraudulent business dealings. As the newest partner and the one most removed from the scandal, Lou is asked by his old friend and partner, Scot Daniels, to ward off the feds, but he soon finds information that may incriminate Scot and another of the firm's partners. Meanwhile, Sheriff Kelly Holt, a "slap-on-the-cuffs dream come true" beauty who is curiously inept, suspects Mason of Sullivan's murder until someone tries to kill Mason. To prevent further attacks against his person, Mason hires his friend, PI Wilson Bluestone (Blues), to act as his bodyguard. With a hit man on Mason's tail and Blues and Holt providing backup, the action accelerates and the fight scenes multiply. First-time author Goldman does an admirable job of maintaining the novel's high tension, but his apparent contempt for his characters, and for corporate lawyers in general, will distance readers from his protagonists. Nevertheless, Goldman's secondary characters particularly Blues and a twisted hit man add flavor to this mediocre thriller, and a series of fierce action scenes carry the reader toward an electrifying denouement. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. ### Review When two of his partners are killed, corruption, sex and murder fill trial lawyer Lou Mason’s docket as he tracks the killer. Will Lou be the next victim? Find out in Motion to Kill. Electrifying. ---Publishers Weekly Lots of suspense and a dandy surprise ending. ---Romantic Times Legal mystery fans will be delighted. ---Nancy Pickard
