A betrayed wife and dedicated mother suddenly forced to raise her six-month-old daughter alone, Melanie Vargas is also an ambitious, hard-working professional who has had to bite and claw for recognition in the federal prosecutor’s office. Then, while strolling with her baby girl on a steamy New York night, Melanie stumbles onto the kind of high-profile case that could make a career: the burning townhouse of a wealthy former prosecutor, its owner’s tortured, murdered corpse smoldering within. Melanie Vargas wants this chance — she needs it — and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
But a headline-grabbing opportunity of a lifetime could cost Melanie more than she ever imagined, as it pulls her closer to a dangerous affair with a secretive, enigmatic FBI agent — and closer still to a sadistic human monster moving expertly through the city’s darkest shadows.
“Michele Martinez’s Most Wanted is taut and crisp, as well-crafted a mystery as you’ll read this year.” “Lightning-paced and suspenseful, sexy and fun, brimming with unforgettable characters, Most Wanted is an absolute must read.” “Most Wanted is an utter page-turner.” “The pages turn in a blur! Edgy and fresh.” “First-timer (and former federal prosecutor) Martinez stokes reader interest with a large, attractive cast.” “Effervescent debut thriller…Martinez has crafted an enormously appealing heroine and a breezy, entertaining tale.” “Martinez’s debut novel is a breakout.”
