Dexter Vega is a newspaper reporter ... at least he was until he was laid off. Now he's slumming, mostly hitting a bar here and there. Meeting a wealthy man at one of these bars, the man offers him a job. He wants Vega to find his daughter. She's supposed to be in college, but he hasn't heard from her in months. The police won't help because she is an adult. Not being able to refuse the payment offered, Vega investigates and finds that she is somewhere in Mexico. Returning to her father, Vega learns that he has been murdered and Vega is the prime suspect. As the police build a case against him, Vega goes to Mexico to find the daughter. And once found, her story is totally different from the one her father told. Actually, he was not even her father. And to his surprise, there are other people who are looking for her ..... and they think Vega has her. Beaten by thugs and told to leave Mexico. he returns home. His house has been trashed, he's threatened with blackmail and chased by both cops and other predators. It's going to take more than a news article for Vega to come out of this without going to prison or being killed. I wasn't overly enthusiastic about this book. Characters were okay, but they came across as rather bland. The premise waS okay, but again, didn't manage to get my heart racing with excitement. It is a mystery, but little suspense. This one just didn't do it for me. My thanks to the author / Oceanview Publishing / Netgalley for the advance digital copy of THE LAST GIRL. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
