From the book jacket . . .
Melanie Vargas is a hardworking, hotshot federal prosecutor in New York City with a rising career in the law and a marriage that's on the rocks. Having caught her husband cheating, she's struggling to work things out, if only for her baby daughter's sake.
On an innocent evening stroll with her child, Melanie stumbles across a horrifying crime scene. A wealthy former prosecutor from her office has been tortured and murdered, his luxurious town house set ablaze to destroy evidence of the crime. It's the kind of high-profile case that can make her name, and Melanie wants in. Needs in. But what she doesn't realize is that this opportunity will bring her dangerously close to a hard-to-resist FBI agent who may have secrets of his own--and even closer to a dark, sadistic killer who seems to be one step ahead of her every inch of the way.
The story of a young prosecutor's wild race against the clock to solve a brutal high-society murder before the killer finds her, Most Wanted is the stunning, sexy, and spellbinding debut novel.
StorkNet's comments . . .
I agree with the book jacket's comments about this being a spellbinding debut novel. This mystery lover will definitely be looking for future books from the author. The plot is intelligent with twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. It is a bit gruesome in parts (okay, very gruesome), but it's a page-turner nonetheless. A brilliantly woven story you won't want to put down! I'm looking forward to Michele's next book!
