After being laid off from his job as a newspaper reporter in a coastal Florida town, Dexter Vega meets a wealthy retiree who hires him to find his daughter who is supposed to be attending the local college. When Vega visits his client to inform him that his daughter is in Mexico, he discovers the man has been murdered. And Vega's prints are all over the murder weapon.
As the police build a case against him, Vega flies to Mexico City to locate his client's daughter, hoping she will help him find the murderer and thus clear his name. But when he finds the woman, she tells him a very different story - nothing is as it seems.
Beaten by thugs and ordered to leave Mexico, Vega returns home to find himself immersed in a web of blackmail, greed, and revenge. Still pursued by the cops - and now a target of evil predators.

Could use another round of writer workshop
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I was excited to listen to this book because the description sounded like an interesting international thriller. Instead, I felt like the author used profanity over character development when showing his main character is at a low point in his life. I feel like another round of writers workshop would've made this story more polished.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
As I said above, the author's writing needed a bit more polishing.
What does Don Amodio bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator handled the main character very well. He was able to express down-on-your-luck desperation, intrigue, fear, and other emotions very well.
Do you think The Last Girl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I feel that the conclusion of the book wrapped up the story and the character's situation very well. The main character is a writer, and wouldn't experience these events again unless he changed careers.
Any additional comments?
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
