Michele Martinez's debut about Melanie Vargas is very suspenseful. Vargas is an attorney with an absent husband and an infant daughter. Between baby sitter problems and struggles with her boss, Vargas begins developing feelings for an FBI agent working a case with her.

MOST WANTED by Michele Martinez: First novel from a hot shot New York Federal prosecutor about a hot shot New York Federal prosecutor. Art imitates life in this fast paced debut. As with many first efforts, Most Wanted would benefit from a tighter editorial hand. We tend to learn too much about too many people. While it is obvious that Melanie the prosecutor is the main character, you're not as certain about some of the others. Major gritty, even for a hard boiled fan like me. Nicely paced, but again just a bit jam packed, as though there is concern about no tomorrow (or second book). Overall a promising start for a shiny new talent.

Got to page 61 and quit. Didn't care what happened to the protagonist, wasn't interested in reading any more. Hope someone else likes it better than I did.

Protags: Melanie Vargas, Dan O'Reilly
Setting: New York City
Comments: Melanie, a federal prosecutor, stumbles across an arson/murder of a former co-worker. She jumps at the chance to take the case but dirty pool abounds and it could destroy her case, or her life. Great love interest, neat backstory, quick paced. A great debut, set up to have a sequel or series.
First sentence: "Melanie Vargas would normally never have dreamed of pushing her baby stroller into the middle of a crime scene."

This book is very good. Would make a great movie. Written by a lawyer. A little gore in the beginning. Author took book from her experience. I recommned if you like Patrica Cromwell's books.
