“With a blistering pace and irresistible characters, Deadlock is the best of high-octane suspense. Robert Liparulo is a fabulous storyteller. His eye for military detail is unerring, and his ability to see into the human heart is revelatory. A page-turner and a heart-tugger, Deadlock is an unforgettable adventure and not to be missed.”

—Gayle Lynds, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Spymaster

“From beginning to end, Deadlock is a race that only lets up to give the reader (and the characters) some much-needed time to breathe. An adventure from beginning to end, Deadlock kept me glued to the story.”
 —Josh Olds, Life Is Story


Even though Deadlock is 450+ pages, I was not ready for it to end. It was a great story that could have went on for another 500 pages and I would have been happy to keep reading. I loved it!

Hutch’s survival skills and ingenuity saved him once in the deep woods. Can they save him this time in the city?

John Hutchinson believes that billionaire military industrialist Brendan Page and his modern Praetorian Guard had something to do with the atrocities his son Declan committed in Canada. The Canadian and U.S. Justice departments disagree, but Hutch has been digging for dirt ever since.

When Hutch discovers the secret of Page’s success, Page sends him a warning. But the operation goes terribly wrong, and Hutch’s son is kidnapped. While a lone man stands little chance against the best black op soldiers ever issued M-16s, Hutch proves to be a stronger opponent than Page imagined.

As far as Hutch is concerned, high-tech helmets, machine guns, and hand grenades are nothing compared to a man determined to save his son. It’s a lesson he sets out to teach Page—and one that he can only hope works as well in the real world as it does in his heart.
