About this title

Synopsis:

“Heart-stopping intensity.”

San Francisco Chronicle

 

“Meltzer has come up with a gem of a plot....It breezes along in high gear....[A] highly recommended suspenser.”

Chicago Tribune

 

Dead Even, the second electrifying thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer (The Tenth Justice) poses the blood-chilling question: How far would you go to save the one you love? Meltzer, who occupies an honored place among the top names in the thriller profession—the legal thriller and Washington D.C. intrigue specialists (Grisham, Baldacci, Martini, Turow, Lescroart) as well as Patterson, Kellerman, Deaver, and other masters of mainstream suspense—comes back strong with Dead Even, as adversarial husband and wife lawyers battle in the courtroom, each knowing that the other’s very life depends on the verdict.

Review:

Sara Tate starts her job as a New York City assistant district attorney the day before massive budget cuts. To keep her job, she grabs a case slated for one of the DA office's hot shots, thinking it will be the kind of showpiece that'll make her a hero. The next day, she learns that the defense attorney on the case is her husband, Jared Lynch. To make matters worse, what appeared to be a simple breaking and entering is beginning to look more like a murder.

Someone is pitting Sara and Jared against each other and both are being threatened: win the case or your spouse dies. Sara and Jared have struggled and suffered more than your ordinary young lawyers and their desperation to protect one another and their life together is almost palpable. But the more they fight to win the case, the more they put each other's lives in jeopardy.

Dead Even is truly gripping. Brad Meltzer has created characters that are realistic enough to be believable, but quirky enough to be captivating. The lawyers are especially determined and the criminals are especially sinister. Even more impressive than his characters is his don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-something plot, which grabs you on page one and doesn't let go until you close the cover. When reading Dead Even, you may find yourself holding your breath as you furiously turn the pages. It's a legal thriller that gives Grisham's books a run for their money. -- Mara Friedman
