"A masterful blend of rock-solid detective work and escalating dread. The Dead Man is both a top-notch thriller, and a heart-rending story of loss, courage, and second chances. I loved it."
—Robert Crais, New York Times Best Selling author
"The Dead Man is one of those rare novels you will be tempted to read twice: the first time to enjoy, and the second to appreciate how Goldman puts the pieces together. The hours spent on both will be more than worth it."
—Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com
"Goldman's realistic setting, fast-paced dialogue and chilling plotting will have you wanting to read more in this gritty suspense series."
—Cindy Bauer, bookpleasures.com
"The Dead Man by Kansas Citian Joel Goldman, is a rock-solid mystery with likable, flawed characters. I would have enjoyed it even if it had not been set in Kansas City, but scenes such as Harper looking out over Brush Creek or eating in the Country Club Plaza added to the pleasure."
—Leslie McGill, Kansas City Star
"The Dead Man has all the plot twists one may expect from a Grisham novel, and the pace of a James Patterson crime story. It is an engrossing, well-developed novel that also uses humor and excellent dialog to convey as well as contrast with its gritty tone."
—Carolyn LeComte, Curledup.com
"The Dead Man is an exciting novel with many surprises... This is the second book in the Jack Davis series and by far the best in this reviewer's opinion."
