Wicked Greed by John W. Mefford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My first impression was - You know some thriller books that start with a bang and then go all over the place and you’re not quite sure what is happening. This is nothing like that. The introduction for Wicked Greed had a slower pace in comparison to Lethal Greed but oh how it made me sit up and wonder where this was going. It was the movie Seven coming to life from a whole new perspective.
As I got to the middle, I felt - The greed of flesh and lust seemed the most prominent in Wicked Greed. If we crave it and we have it and then keep going back for more in any shape or form, how do we snap out of it? Mefford’s writing style is the same as with the other books. Concise yet he pulls the reader in with powerful imagery.
As I neared the end, I thought - There is no logical explanation to how these people act, the possibilities of human behaviour in its wildest form made this book an entertaining read. Some scenes are not for the faint hearted and I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good thriller with a twist.
My final impression and recommendations - Very well-written and it is a topic, plot twist that many readers will be able to relate. Highly entertaining. Highly recommended.
