MOST WANTED - MICHELE MARTINEZ

Melanie Vargas did not have an easy life.  She worked as a prosecutor and at the same time had the responsibility of raising her six-month old daughter, Maya.  One evening Melanie heard sirens - not one but many different kinds like ambulances, police cruisers and fire trucks.  She knew something serious had happened.

Melanie was having trouble trying to get Maya to go to sleep.  She decided to get the stroller and take Maya for a walk.   Once Melanie discovered what was happening and which house was involved, she knew she could not leave.  It was Jed Benson's house.  He was a famous prosecutor in her office at one time then left to make a fortune in private practice. 

Melanie heard a woman shouting, "Let me help".  She discovered it was her college roommate and friend, Sophie Cho.  Melanie knew she had to get in on this case.  It was the type of case that could help her career.  She managed to do just that by avoiding certain questions she was being asked by the police.  Melanie was told that Jed Benson was murdered.  She told Lt. Ramirez she was ready to work the case.  Sophie volunteered to take care of Maya.

What does Melanie discover during her investigation?  Is she able to help capture the killer of Jed Benson?  Melanie soon learns she is getting more than she bargained for in dealing with this killer!

This book is a captivating read!  I found it difficult to put the book down once I started reading it.  The story is full of suspense and Michele Martinez does an excellent job of pulling the action together to make this an excellent mystery.  If you are a fan of the suspense novel, add this one to your list.  You are in for a treat!  We look forward to more books by Michele Martinez.
