Michele Martinez’s taut, crisp debut combines deft word choices with a riveting story line, creating euphonious dialogue that is perfect for Isabel Keating’s expert narration. With Keating’s unique voices, character development is honed to an art form. Melanie, a young federal prosecutor, is the gutsy, strong-willed Latina heroine who has not quite left behind her poverty-stricken Brooklyn roots and the tragedy that tore apart her parents’ marriage. Secondary characters include gang leader Slice; Melanie’s sister, Linda, a Latina princess; FBI Agent Dan O’Reilly, whose deep, confident, resonant voice never falters, even during high-speed chases; and Bernadette, the boss from hell.
