Description

Deadlock is the second John Hutchinson book by Robert Liparulo (the first being Deadfall).

Deadlock is the second John Hutchinson book by Robert Liparulo (the first being Deadfall). Personally, I would recommend reading Deadfall first for two reasons 1) it's crazy good and 2) some of the relationships, characters, and dynamics are better understand with the background provided in Deadfall. An exceptional thriller and suspense novel. From page one the Deadlock is the second John Hutchinson book by Robert Liparulo (the first being Deadfall).

Hutch is a newspaper columnist, single dad. Deadlock is the second John Hutchinson book by Robert Liparulo (the first being Deadfall).

Book in the John Hutchinson Series). I have never read anything by Robert Liparulo until now. The book is part 2 of a series so I missed insights into the main character. However, this book can still be read as a stand alone as Mr. Liparulo does spend some time briefing you up on the events of the first book. Even though I never felt like I was jumping into a story midway, I'd like to read the first book, Deadfall, to fully appreciate the main character and his way of thinking. If this book could be made into a movie, it would be like a James Bond type movie, in my opinion. There's plenty of action and suspense.

Once again Robert Liparulo creates a wild ride that keeps you from your needed sleep. "Deadlock" is a lot of fun but very serious in it's portrayal of evil. The writing was good and straight-forward, the characters were an excellent continuation from "Deadfall". Read it in just three days which is very quick for me since I'm so busy. I loved the battle of brains and technology especially since I'm a fan of the bow. I don't think you'll have to read "Deadfall" to enjoy this book but I think it'll help. It's just as good and worth reading first.

Biblically there are no Christians again but there are some Biblical references which seemed a bit out-of-place, almost forced so that it could be considered a "Christian" novel. There were some good moral messages though... the importance of being a good, compassionate and caring father, one willing to give his life for the ones he loves. Good triumphing over evil. Brains over brawn. Common-sense over higher-education.

I did have one issue with the writing which is minor but annoyed me just the same. When a story is in an action scene I do not like it slowed-down by thought dialogue such as regrets of not being a good parent. Is that really necessary during a gun battle? There's plenty of other times when the subject can be brought up so leave it for the lulls. "Deadlock" did this way too much in my opinion.

If you haven't read either Deadfall or Deadlock I highly suggest ordering them both. I think you'll be happy you did.

Good book. Great characters, well developed. There were several slow parts with almost thought monologues, I felt like those were a bit much. The story was great and made up for the overabundance of information. I'll keep reading the Hutch books. Excited for the crossover with the immortals...that should be interesting.

Liparulo writes a fast action thriller that does not stop. This is a real page turner.

Liparulo has become one of my favorite authors due to action stories from Deadfall to the Dreamhouse Kings Series. Put this author on the top of your reading list.

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 with Page he's been seeking. Leaving his kids with Laura and Dillon, he follows his obsession to Washington and finds himself in the midst of a trap that endangers not only his life, but those of the ones he loves.

Deadfall was a rare thriller and in my top 15 all time favorite books. It was brilliantly written with characters that really deserved to be seen again. So, Deadlock was a much anticipated book, which did not disappoint.

Deadlock starts out slower than other Liparulo books. We're filled in on the events of Deadfall and caught up on what has been happening in everyone's lives. While this is a follow up book, if you haven't read Deadfall, that's not a problem. You're not going to be lost and there are only a couple of minor Deadfall spoilers. As with all of Liparulo's books, though, once the action starts, it's breathtakingly fast.

All the subplots in Deadlock work well together. A few I wish would have had more time spent on them. I loved Julian in Deadfall. He was and still continued to be a kid who held onto what was right in the midst of evil. While he has an important roll, I really wanted it to be a larger role. I also would have liked to have seen more of Michael. Again, he was there and he served a nice role, but I wanted a bigger role for him.

One part of the story that was awesome, was the training of the soldiers and the blurring of the line between game and reality. It painted a powerful picture of transforming boys to killers through the use of games. Great storyline, that in and of itself could have been a whole book.

Though I'm not sure this was Liparulo's intention, I could very easily see Page representing Satan. He actively searched for boys and he converted them to killers. He took them from their families, locked them away, and trained them to be what he wanted them to be. He fed them half-truths and retrained their minds to focus on the game, not the consequences of their actions. He was evil to the core. Not sure that was what Liparulo was going for, but Page was, without a doubt purely evil.

Aside from the action and a great story, Deadlock offers some insight into relationships--those with our kids, our friends, and workers. It highlights the struggles between our focus and what our focus should be.

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 and hope that maybe one day we'll see some of these characters again.

Riveting suspense, but WAY out there on ANY possibility that this could ever happen. Unrealistic, but a good read.
