Solid, Page-Turning Storytelling.

Deadlock follows John Hutchinson (Hutch) and his family as he puts his life back together after his harrowing nightmare as detailed in Deadfall. Dillon and Laura have come to Denver for a visit. Life is calm, a little boring, even, except for Hutch's growing obsession with Brendan Page, the billionaire father of Declan. Declan, the young man who nearly killed Hutch, Laura and Dillon and did kill several people near and dear to them paid the ultimate price, but, it seems Brendan Page's money is keeping him safely out of the reach of the law and free to dabble in war games.

After a warning that ends up turning deadly and into a kidnapping, war breaks out between Page and his sophisticated killing forces and Hutch and a rag-tag band of kids and a woman.

Deadlock is a page-turning story that had me rooting for Hutch, not just to take care of the bad guys, but to discover the children who love and need his time and attention. Other than some intense scenes complete with gore, I found Deadlock to be a very good and satisfying novel. The characters are solid and likable, the action is twist and turn complex, the writing continues to satisfy even though Liparulo has several irons in the fire. Action and adventure lovers, gamers, guys, suspense hounds and character collectors might want to look a little deeper.

It's been one year since John Hutchinson battled Declan Page and his teen cronies in the remote Canadian wilderness. Back home in Denver, Hutch has been on a personal mission to bring down Declan's father, Brendan Page, the man behind the horrors that took the lives of so many innocent people. Unfortunately, Page just happens to be the CEO of a major paramilitary organization with strong government support, and all of Hutch's digging leads nowhere. Brendan Page soon decides that Hutch needs to be …

A year has passed since Hutch, Laura, and Dillon survived the attack on Fiddler Falls. Hutch returned to his life in Denver and Laura and Dillon to theirs. However, Hutch's life has not returned to normal. His obsession with tying Declan's father, Brendan Page, to the attacks and other atrocities has led to tension with his kids. When Laura and Dillon visit Hutch in Denver, the plans are to have a nice week of play, but those plans are quickly changed when Hutch is finally granted the interview …
