New York. It may be Christmas in New York, but for ex-soldier turned elite bodyguard Ryan Lock it's business as usual: his mission is to protect one of America's most ruthless businessmen. A bloody shoot-out - suddenly gunshots ring out. People run for cover. Innocent people are mown down. Amid the chaos, Lock's hunt for the killers turns into an explosive game of cat and mouse. A deadly secret - Lock's search for the truth takes him from the rooftops of a New York skyscraper to a heavily fortified warehouse on the Hudson where he confronts one of the world's most dangerous women. As the clock ticks towards midnight on New Year's Eve, all routes into and out of Manhattan are sealed, and Lock realizes that not only is his own life in terrible danger but so are the lives of millions of others...

JOSEPH FINDER "Funny, tough, and furiously paced, Lockdown explodes off the page." JESSE KELLERMAN "Hold on tight-this one burns like a lit fuse." GREGG HURWITZ "An action movie on the printed page.
