Product Description

Product Description

If you like Lee Child's non-stop action and Harlan Coben's stomach twisting suspense, you'll love No Way Out, the third book in the Jack Davis Thriller series by Joel Goldman!

"Sleek and sassy, No Way Out is a page-turner that keeps going full speed until the very end."
Faye Kellerman, New York Times Bestselling author

"Goldman spins his latest yarn into a clever, complex tangle of chain reactions between six families of characters whose lives are intertwined by blood, greed, lust, desperation and even love."
435 South Magazine

Meeting ex-FBI agent Jack Davis in the middle of a shootout is the best thing that could have happened to Roni Chase. As Jack follows Roni into a lethal web of deceit, years in the making, the only thing that can save them - time - is running out.

Think James Patterson meets Michael Connelly and you've got Joel Goldman in No Way Out!

"This is the third book in the Jack Davis series. I loved it! It's fast paced and provides an edge-of-your-seat intensity that doesn't let up. It starts off with a bang and goes right to the end with hardly a break."
Daisy's Book Journal

"No Way Out has a most compelling main character. He's driven by his own demons and past mistakes. He has what would seem to be an insurmountable flaw. When he develops the shakes and crashes to one knee, he pulls himself up and you, the reader, with him."
Helen Ginger

Jump on Now Way Out and hang on for a rockin' ride!

Then grab Shakedown, the first book in the Jack Davis Thriller series. When FBI Agent Jack Davis investigates a mass murder, a leak of crucial information and his imploding personal life throw him into the ultimate danger zone - where truth lies at the heart of betrayal.

After you catch your breath, pick up The Dead Man, the second book in the Jack Davis Thriller series. Jack crosses paths with a serial killer inside one of the most advanced research facilities in the world when people start to die exactly as they dreamed they would.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Characters Feb. 21 2011
By Helen Ginger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
No Way Out by Joel Goldman is a cross between a thriller and a crime novel. It's the third in the series starring ex-FBI agent Jack Davis.

Like all protagonists, Jack Davis has his flaw or Achilles Heel. Unlike a lot of lead characters, though, his is a doozie. With the FBI for 25 years, he didn't retire or quit under a cloud. He quit because he developed what he calls "the shakes." Often without warning and often when things get "hairy," he begins to shake. He can't control it and it often drops him to his knees. That doesn't stop him, though. It does, however, put him in some precarious situations.

This case involves gun dealers being robbed and, in the latest incident, killed. He ends up investigating it. Jack has more than just his shakes to deal with. His ex-wife lives with him while she deals with terminal cancer. The woman who often drives him is his past lover. When he doesn't have someone to drive him, he rides the city bus. And when someone else might give up, he keeps going.

By the end, he solves the case. What he loses, though, is both painful and life-changing. And the chances are you won't see the killer coming.

No Way Out has a most compelling main character. He's driven by his own demons and past mistakes. He has what would seem to be an insurmountable flaw. When he develops the shakes and crashes to one knee, he pulls himself up, and you the reader, with him. His dying wife does not have a huge role in the book, but she is never far from your mind. Eldon, the gun dealer who is killed coming home from a gun show, stays in your head. It is the characters who inhabit Jack Davis' world that stick in your memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this book! Sept. 20 2011
By Marianne Noller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just started reading Mr. goldman's books and I really like them. I like his characters and the stories are great. I like to read a book that I just can't " put down" and this was one of those. Not super thrilling or non-stop action, just a good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Way Out is About the Underbelly of Kansas City Oct. 5 2010
By James R. Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was this reviewer's first experience with a Joel Goldman mystery thriller, but it most assuredly won't be the last. No Way Out is set in Kansas City, mostly Northeast Kansas City and his descriptions made you feel like you were actually in that section of the country, even if you've never set foot in Kansas City.
The thriller begins at a typical gun show and provides the reader who may never have attended such an event, a good overview of the experience. One of the gun dealers is robbed of his entire inventory after a bazaar chase and encounter with an 8-point buck.
The book's main character is an ex-FBI agent named Jack Davis. He's not the typical hero type in that he has a partial disability (he sometimes gets temporary shakes and spasms--not fatal, but also not curable), but that doesn't keep him from working part-time with a private detective agency. In fact, the characters working in that agency are probably pretty typical of the private eye business, as it exists today. The boss is Simon Alexander a computer whiz who does most of his crime solving on line. His field investigator and girlfriend is Lucy Trent, an ex-cop and ex-con and she does most of the footwork. Jack Davis comes in to assist in certain cases where his years of FBI experience may be helpful or when somebody who can legally carry a gun is needed. In this novel they are also working with a lawyer for one of their clients and Kate Scranton his expert at telling if a witness is lying or telling the truth. "Kate was a psychologist and jury consultant who could read lies in the involuntary facial movements none of us suppress."
The ATF is represented along with two regular detectives from different police departments. Several of the cases that Jack is working on turn out to be related.
Roni Chase is a woman gets involved in a domestic argument and shootout in a local Rib Joint that Jack and his partner Lucy observe--they are caught in the middle of it. One of the guns used in the gunfight at the Rib Joint turns out to be one of the stolen guns from the gun dealer robbery.
Jack is soon helping Roni defend herself in the case. She turns out to be a bookkeeper whose clients mostly seem to be going bankrupt and losing their homes, businesses, and jobs due to the current rotten economy. These are working class clients and small businessmen who have worked their entire lives, but are becoming the chief victims of this particularly nasty economic downturn.
The rather humdrum case soon gets much more involved when the local connection to the Mexican Drug Lords enters the scene looking for his shipment of stolen guns that have also gone missing after he reported to his bosses they were ready for shipment to Mexico. His bosses didn't like being disappointed so their local representative is turning his territory upside down looking for the very stupid gun thieves who have double-crossed him.
The fun of this book is the more complicated personalities of Jack and some of his co-workers. The web of deceit grows like a spider's web, danger lurks everywhere and people are dying in each investigation that gets caught up in the ever-expanding web.
Readers of crime mysteries will find this offbeat case and the underbelly of Middle America different from most of the mystery-thriller genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bridget's Review Sept. 12 2010
By bridget3420 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
No Way Out is a fun, action-packed book that was full of suspense. It reminded me of some of my favorite action flicks and I could definitely see this one on the big screen. When you're looking for adventure, pick up Joel's book.
