Book Description

This is an ALL-NEW edition, completely revised and reformatted for 2011...

The third book in action-packed JURY series from Lee Goldberg, bestselling author of THE WALK and the MONK mysteries...


A sadist with a hunger for victims is talking the streets of Los Angeles--leaving a trail of destruction which threatens to engulf the city in racial violence. And he's calling himself...Mr. Jury.

Now vigilante Brett Macklin, the real Mr. Jury, is hitting the killing ground with just seventy hours to hunt down the deadly impostor and clear his name. All he has to do is take on an army of fanatical white supremacists, stop a news-hungry reporter from digging too deep into his past, and save a tough black cop from being buried alive.

Time and luck are running out.

"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

(Originally published as the third book in the ".357 Vigilante" series under the pen name Ian Ludlow)

Editorial Reviews


"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

"Timid readers beware.There are generous helpings of sex and violent action. But if you're a fan of Robert B. Parker,Dirty Harry or the Die Hard movies, you'll have a very good time,"-J.A. Konrath, bestselling author of THE LIST

"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"

"This gritty, action-packed escapist yarn explodes straight out of the freewheeling 1980' writing, wicked wit, wall-to-wall action, and over-the-top sex."   --Paul Levine, bestselling author of "Soloman & Lord"

2.0 out of 5 stars Author gave the editor the day off April 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is hard to keep your mind on the story when every second or third page slaps you with a typo, bad English, words missing or just plain bad writing. Nothing about this book gives even a hint that the author had a plot in mind. Shallow, not even close to believable situations. Best part of the book was when it was over. Glad it was a short book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same old story January 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Same story, different episode..Just finished this one, and it had just as many editing errors as the first two in this series... Very frustrating to constantly have to stop and look at a phrase or word to comprehend what the author intends..Great plot, plenty of action, but disappointing..Maybe #4 will be better..You feel cheated, even though the books are only a couple of bucks each..

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific 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.

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.
