In Minus One by Norwood Holland readers are introduced to Drew Smith, a hotel employee who attends school to become a lawyer. Drew becomes friends with Medhat and Julio. These two men become a thorn in Drew’s side from borrowing his clothes, to trashing his apartment and taking his car. So, why is Drew friends with these two fellow employees?
Medhat becomes involved with the wrong crowd and evidently owes a drug dealer, Fast Eddie a lot of money. In addition, Medhat starts to date Fast Eddie’s girlfriend, which does not sit well. When Fast Eddie is found dead, Medhat becomes the prime suspect.
On his first day as a lawyer Drew acquires his first client. The client happens to be his friend Medhat. Medhat is in the wrong place at the right time and is accused of murder. Drew is now on a mission to find out what really happened to Fast Eddie and enlist the help of their free loading friend Julio. Will Drew solve the case in time to save Medhat?
Minus One is a murder mystery about three friends trying to stay out of trouble but can’t help but find it. The author does a wonderful job with description and character development that will capture the reader’s attention. This book was entertaining, suspenseful and I appreciated the knowledge of law. However, I was confused at times due to the changes in point-of-view. I look forward to read more of this authors work.  I recommend Minus One to others.
