really liked it

Least Wanted by Debbi Mack is a contemporary crime thriller. Written in the first person from the point of view of a lawyer, the novel is very reminiscent of the old Philip Marlowe films starring Humphrey Bogart. I definitely read with a black and white picture in my head!
On the surface, seemingly unconnected crimes keep popping up. As the body count rises the reader tries to keep track of all the ins and outs in this fast paced crime thriller.
The novel deals with the awful topics of drugs, child porn, girl gangs and violence. Being born in poor neighbourhoods means some do not stand a chance. Poverty and crime seem to go hand in hand.
Not all crime is out on the streets, cyber crime is a modern day phenomena.
Least Wanted was a gritty, realistic read that would make an excellent film noir movie.
A complex read and not for the faint hearted.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
