Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Meltzer’s characters and dialogue are crisp and dead-on…Meltzer is so good at tapping into the yuppie psyches of Sara and Jared, their psychological game of cat and mouse, and the chilling office politics, that the book…races along like a great beach read.” Entertainment Weekly
Dead Even is truly gripping. Brad Meltzer has created characters that are realistic enough to be believable, but quirky enough to be captivating…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.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Meltzer follows up his bestselling The Tenth Justice with this sleek, suspenseful, only slightly unbelievable story about two young New York lawyers in love and in danger…A compelling tale of legal and extralegal adventure.” Publishers Weekly
“Meltzer is…a vibrant and straightforward storyteller, bringing a fresh, young approach to the legal-thriller genre…Flush with interesting characters, this is an easy, fast-paced read.” Booklist
“Dark humor, legal action like Grisham, and nail-biting suspense make this a thriller in the true sense of the word. Meltzer gives the reader well-rounded characters; demonizing neither prosecution nor defense, he shows both as human beings doing a job.” Library Journal
