Wicked Greed by John W. Mefford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In theory, you cannot imagine a community that is governed by greed. When it’s always more. But this is what we have become. As imaginative as the author was, I couldn’t help but consider that somewhere out there people like this existed. Their desire to have something trumps all reality and they go for it at the expense of someone else’s emotions or life.
Scene settings were sometimes similar to Savages (Salma Hayek), brutal but necessary. This is the third book in the author’s Greed series and I am in awe of the author’s intelligent, powerful prose with so much attention to detail.
The characters are compelling, the plot complex, the subplots intricate and readers are taken on a wild spin of evil, greed and corruption. The most compelling of all scenes for me was when Jeremiah’s identity becomes known. What a punch in the gut that was.
