My Review -

The Last Straw by Ed Duncan is a second book in the Pigeon-Blood Red series. I didn't read the first book, and it didn't bother me because of the author's phenomenal writing. Even I discover the first book after I finish reading this one. No judgment, please!

One day a girl named Sandy witness a carjacking and murder. Soon after that, her father was killed. A renowned lawyer and a friend of Sandy's father, Paul Elliott, caught up in the middle of all this tragedy. He and his girlfriend Evelyn took care of Sandy. But a gangster name Howard wants Sandy dead, and no one knows why? 

He picked Rico, but he refused to kill Sandy. He has some rules when it comes to murdering women, plus he shares a history with Paul. Howard gives the work to D'Angelo, a hot-headed guy. He resents Rico and looking for an opportunity to hurt him. In all these dramas, Paul and Evelyn also became the target, and their former reminiscences start affecting their present. 

Rico finds out the association between Howard and Jeff, the one who stoles the car, and why he is trying to protect him? But will it be too late for Sandy, Paul, and Evelyn? Will a hardcore assassin like Rico ever be able to repay his debt? What is the relationship between Rico and Paul?

The story hooked me from start to finish. I enjoyed the narrative, and the writing style is lucid. There are no grammatical errors. All the characters are placed correctly and thoughtfully composed. Ed Duncan cleverly represents the world of crooks. The author is currently working on the third book, and I loved to read more about Rico and Paul's history. I recommend this book without any doubt to those who love reading a mystery with many action sequences.
