Goodreads Synopsis

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.

My Take

What I liked: I read the book as a standalone and I didn’t feel like I am missing out. The Last Straw is the second book in the Pigeon- blood Red series and here’s the thing, I didn’t know it’s a second book until way after I finished it, so major props to that! The storyline is really interesting with its twists and turns which I quite enjoyed.
The Last Straw is fast paced in that it starts with a bang and it doesn’t let up until the last page. When I say I was hooked from the first page, you guys I was HOOKED!!!

What I didn’t like: there are two things I didn’t like, 1. I didn’t see any character development and that took away a little of my enjoyment of the book and 2. Some twists were really unnecessary and I think they were put there for shock value, I wasn’t shocked.

“Brave people are frightened all the time but that doesn’t mean they aren’t brave.”

All in all The Last Straw is a wonderful book and if you love action packed reads, then this is for you.
