"As stunning as the report of a .357 Magnum, a dynamic premiere effort [...] The Best New Paperback Series of the year!" West Coast Review of Books

Editorial Reviews


"GUILTY is a direct sequel to PAYBACK, so in no way can I go into details.  But Goldberg holds nothing back in this one, that's for sure. Bodies pile up real quickly, proving Macklin is not one to screw with." --Bruce Grossman, Bookgasm

Lee Goldberg's The Jury Series serves vengeance hot with loads of action and plenty of suspense to keep you turning the e-pages. Vigilante justice was never so much fun,
--Joel Goldman, bestselling author of "Motion to Kill."

"Violence, sex, and more violence, The Jury Series gives you all of this along with smart-aleck one-liners and dark humor. Satisfaction guaranteed for action junkies,"  --Paul Bishop, LAPD Detective & author of "Citadel Run"

"Generous helpings of sex and violent action, along with some smart-aleck dialog," --J.A. Konrath, bestselling author of "The List"

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Series April 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this series back when they were first published, without knowing they were written by Lee Goldberg (My Gun Has Bullets, Monk, Man With The Iron-On Badge, etc.)

These are smart, humorous, fast-paced novels, with a lot of action and snappy lines. I liked them when I was a teen, and they've aged well.

If you want to kill a few hours, these are quick, breezy, and you can't beat the price.

But timid readers beware. There are generous helpings of sex and violent action, along with some smart-aleck dialog. But if you're a fan of Robert B. Parker, Dirty Harry, early Lawrence Block, or the Die Hard movies, you'll have a very good time.

Ah, the 80s. When cults produce mind-controlled sex slaves and women had tan lines and pubic hair. When crime was rife but gangs were led by people dressed like Michael Jackson, and the streets -- or at least the paperback shelves -- crawled with serial vigilantes, middle-aged white men with big grudges and even bigger guns.

I waited about 25 years to read the fourth book in the "Jury" series, having read the other three in high school when they were originally released. Never published when the original publisher (Pinnacle, home of many fine violent mens' adventure yarns) went bankrupt, this 4th entry in the series was certainly worth the wait.

Having previously incurred the wrath of a rich man in the preceding volume (by blasting his serial killer son), Brett Macklin here finds himself hunted by a cunning female assassin who is targeting all the people he loves. Full of sex and violence, the only problem with this one is that it was a little too short -- I finished it in a couple hours and wanted more.

Lee Goldberg wrote these original adventures back in the 80s when he was a college student. Sadly, since he has found mainstream success with the Fox and O'Hare series he writes with Janet Evanovich, it seems increasingly unlikely that we'll ever see another adventure of Brett Macklin, aka Mr. Jury.

But, hey, think about, okay, Mr Goldberg? Maybe Mr. Jury now in his 60s in Los Angeles, returning to wreak some more biblical justice on the wicked?

2.0 out of 5 stars Bionic killer April 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Being an adult woman that loves reading mysteries, caper stories and who'd units I happened upon this book actually thinking it was by an English writer and his protaganist is named Jury. Although I kept reading, fascinated by this bionic individual who just couldn't die no matter the amount of lead pumped into his body the story was so far fetched. hmmm,lets see ,Bruce Willis, Arnie,
or any of the Bond actors? would I buy another Jury book? Huh uh. but thanks for a couple of days of fun reading. J. Young

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice read April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the first of this series after seeing it on a Pixel of Ink freebie and was pleasantly surprised so purchased the rest of the series.

For a first time author, and a student at that, I thought the author did a great job at keeping the reader interested. The only negative was that at times I felt the story line was a bit rushed and could have gone into more detail.

I have read several of Lee Goldberg's The Jury Series. I just found this repitious. I have read only 8% and do not feel that I will go back to it. The first few books in the series were much better.

More About the Author

Lee Goldberg is an ex-Navy SEAL, freelance Sexual Surrogate and a professional Pierce Brosnan impersonator.

Okay, that's not true. But he wants this biography to be really exciting, so pay attention. If things bog down, I've been instructed to add a car chase or some explicit sex.

Here's the real story. Lee Goldberg writes books and television shows.

His mother wanted him to be a doctor, and his grandfather wanted him to go into the family furniture business. Instead, he put himself through UCLA as a freelance journalist, writing for such publications as American Film, Starlog, Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times Syndicate, The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle (He also wrote erotic letters to the editor for Playgirl at $25-a-letter, but he doesn't tell people about that, he just likes to boast about those "tiffany" credits).

He published his first book ".357 Vigilante" (as "Ian Ludlow," so he'd be on the shelf next to Robert Ludlum) while he was still a UCLA student. The West Coast Review of Books called his debut "as stunning as the report of a .357 Magnum, a dynamic premiere effort," singling the book out as "The Best New Paperback Series" of the year. Naturally, the publisher promptly went bankrupt and he never saw a dime in royalties. (But the books are available on the Kindle as "The Jury Series")

Welcome to publishing, Lee.

His subsequent books include the non-fiction books "Successful Television Writing" and "Unsold Television Pilots" ("The Best Bathroom Reading Ever!" San Francisco Chronicle) as well as the novels "My Gun Has Bullets" ("It will make you cackle like a sitcom laugh track," Entertainment Weekly), "Dead Space" ("Outrageously entertaining," Kirkus Reviews), "Watch Me Die" ("as dark and twisted as anything Hammet or Chandler ever dreamed up," Kirkus Reviews).

"Take me now," she moaned, "you hot writer stud."

She tore off her clothes and tackled him onto the floor, unable to control her raging lust. Nothing excited her more than being around a writer with a big list of books.

Got your attention again? Good. I don't know about you, but I was starting to nod off. Where was I? Oh yes...

Goldberg broke into television with a freelance script sale to "Spenser: For Hire." Since then, his TV writing & producing credits have covered a wide variety of genres, including sci-fi (SeaQuest), cop shows (Hunter, The Glades), martial arts (Martial Law), whodunits (Diagnosis Murder, Nero Wolfe), the occult (She-Wolf of London), kid's shows (R.L. Stine's The Nightmare Room), T&A (Baywatch), comedy (Monk) and utter crap (The Highwayman). His TV work has earned him two Edgar Award nominations from the Mystery Writers of America.

His two careers, novelist and TV writer, merged when he began writing the "Diagnosis Murder" series of original novels, based on the hit CBS TV mystery that he also wrote and produced, and later wrote the 15 bestselling novels based on "Monk," another show that he worked on. He's also the co-creator of Amazon's "The Dead Man" series of monthly horror novellas and the author of the crime thriller "King City." Most recently, he teamed up with Janet Evanovich to write the New York Times bestselling books "The Heist" and "Pros & Cons."

But perhaps he's best known for his pioneering work mapping the human genome and negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Goldberg lives in Los Angeles with his wife and his daughter and still sleeps in "Man From UNCLE" pajamas.
