Medhat becomes involved with the wrong crowd and evidently owes a drug dealer, Fast Eddie a lot of money. In addition, Medhat starts to date Fast Eddie's girlfriend, which does not sit well. When Fast Eddie is found dead, Medhat becomes the prime suspect.
On his first day as a lawyer Drew acquires his first client. The client happens to be his friend Medhat. Medhat is in the wrong place at the right time and is accused of murder. Drew is now on a mission to find out what really happened to Fast Eddie and enlist the help of their free loading friend Julio. Will Drew solve the case in time to save Medhat?
Minus One is a murder mystery about three friends trying to stay out of trouble but can't help but find it. The author does a wonderful job with description and character development that will capture the reader's attention. This book was entertaining, suspenseful and I appreciated the knowledge of law. However, I was confused at times due to the changes in point-of-view. I look forward to read more of this authors work. I recommend Minus One to others.
This PDF copy was provided by the author for review purposes.
Though the premise was an interesting one, I found "Minus One" to be rather slow initially. It did not pick up its pace until after over 100 pages in. While the relationship between the three main characters, Drew, Julio and Medhat, needed to be established and the premise set up, too much time was given to these aspects as well as other information/scenes pertaining to other characters with supporting roles.
There were a few quirks with editing and the narration. The story was told from the first-person point of view of Drew, yet it occasionally switched to third-person to account for happenings that Drew was not present for or he was not directly involved in, which proved confusing.
After "Minus One" got into the meat of the story, it was entertaining and held my interest. I like what Norwood Holland is doing and I look forward to more from him.
