The Last Straw-Book Review

The Last Straw (Pigeon-Blood Red Book 2)When a teenage girl witnesses a carjacking gone bad, she is marked for death by a crime boss with no apparent motive. A black lawyer and a white enforcer with an unlikely history forge an uneasy alliance to protect the girl from a hit man with an agenda of his own.

After they find out that the crime boss is the father of the black teenage carjacker, Paul Elliott – lawyer and close friend of the witness’s family – begins counseling them.

As the long-simmering feud between Rico and John D’Angelo reaches boiling point, bodies start to pile up in rapid succession… and old scores will be settled.

I received a paperback from the author and Kelsey Butts from book publicity service in exchange for an honest review.

I didn’t realize that it is the 2nd book of this series, But it doesn’t make much difference. It is a Mystery Thriller, which is a genre I don’t read much, So I wasn’t expecting much.

This book doesn’t have the main character but many and important characters, Sandra is a 16 years old girl, she is also a witness of a murder…Paul is a lawyer who is a friend of Sandra’s father…Rico is a gangster but with a tiny bit honor…

This book has many elements: family drama, friends, gangster hood, good v/s bad, crime, thriller, and nothing was overloaded. I like the way how some characters stood for others only for the sake of humanity, It is rare in both life and books.

I enjoyed it, It was fun, different, dark but still positive.
