As someone who is very picky in the type of mystery/thriller she reads, I was left pleasantly surprised with this particular story. Though The Last Straw is a simple and quick read with little twists it managed to keep me keep me up on my toes. What made the story so likeable is the fact that the plot is driven by the character and the relationship they develop throughout. The book does well with how it digs deep into each of the characters’ life and personality especially my baby, Rico. The characterization of Rico was my favorite part. Rico is shown as he truly is, from his dark side to his “good” side as well. The perfect anti-hero. dark side of Rico but her about There is some deaths and minor killing involved but nothing graphic that will turn anyone away. The ending was happier then what I would have intended it to be.
