This is my first meeting with Sean Black and Ryan Lock but it certainly won't be my last. I'm a big fan of crime action thrillers and now I have a new hero to champion. With the writing style of Matt Hilton and the panache of Zoe Sharp, Black excites, enthralls and entertains with the confident aplomb of an author with far more experience under his belt. Lock is not a new creation in any way, but he does have his individual quirks which single him out and make him his own man. The client, Raven Lane, is a complicated conundrum and she brings much to the novel in a cleverly understated manner. Lock's fiancée, Carrie, and Ty, his partner, provide ample support, although for me Kevin was the best of the support cast. The pace is as punchy as any of the many fine novels in the genre and the short terse chapters escalate pace and tension in the reader. The plot is nicely laid out and provides more than one shock as the body count steadily rises. If you are a fan of the genre and are looking for a fast paced, thrilling romp, then Grid Lock is the book for you.
