From the hot new suspense writer critics predict will have Grisham fans "switching their allegiance in midstream" comes a thrilling tale of love and murder set on the mean streets and in the sleek society haunts of Atlanta. . . . Sleeping with a client's gorgeous girlfriend may have been the gutsiest move in Jack Hammond's formerly booming law career, but it wasn't the smartest. Booted from his elite law firm, Jack now scrapes by as a court-appointed attorney, his client list a revolving door of small-time drug offenders and petty thieves. When his friend -- a computer whiz and former addict who'd brought his life back from the brink -- is found dead in his apartment with a syringe stuck in his arm, Jack knows something is very wrong. Where the cops see just another overdose, Jack sees a murder. Investigating the case, he learns that his friend was obsessed with a beautiful singer -- who also happens to be half of the most popular power couple in Atlanta. Talented and privileged, the spellbinding Michele Sonnieris nevertheless a deeply troubled woman, plagued by secrets. Against his better judgment -- and in a disturbing echo of his earlier fall from grace -- Jack is pulled further and further into her world, where he discovers more suspicious deaths, all pointing toward a mysterious cover-up. A volatile tale of love, betrayal, and murder shot through with tenderness and poignant humanity, The Last Goodbye is a riveting thriller with a thunderously beating heart, a masterful page-turner that probes the meaning of love and the burdens of the past.… (mais)

I found the story about a down and out attorney dragging on in several places. The plot was okay but didn't hold my attention enough to read about a third of the book and no more. ( )

Excellent audio read by narrator Dylan Baker that is entertainingly reminiscent of 30s and 40s detective genre.

My Introduction to a Promising Writer

Reed Arvin’s second thriller is a great read.

The tale begins with a crying woman. Soon lawyer Jack Hammond, is doing the crying. As a result of his love affair with a client’s girl friend, he tumbles from defending Atlanta’s corporate elite to trawling the bottom of its criminal pool for clients.

The story of his journey back to personal respectability is, however more than your average thriller.

It is not often that a new writer creates believable, complex characters that find themselves in poignant, often, tender relationships. It is a thriller for thinking readers. Best of all, it is story that flies. Despite Arvin’s unique insights on race, business ethics, your past burdens, science, technology and love, the story never drags.

My only complaint with the book is with Arvin’s inaccurate use of stock market jargon. But if this book is as successful as I think it will be, he will not have to worry. He will quickly develop a familiarity with that specialized vocabulary as he invests his residuals and future advances. ( )

I was one of 20 people chosen to preview The Last Goodbye for Bookreporter.com. I was thrilled with the opportunity, even though I was unsure this would be a book I would have chosen for myself. I like mysteries, suspense, and thrillers, but would I enjoy this particular one? I hesitate to use the word slow to describe this book because the word has a negative connotation to it. Sometimes slowness in a book is appropriate and it is tied into the style of writing used. That was the case in this book. Reed Arvin has a magical way with words. His style reminded me of the old black and white movies; although I am not sure I can put my finger on why that is exactly. Mr. Arvin’s story was complex in many respects; not only was this a book about a defense attorney investigating the murder of an old friend, this is also a story about love, ethics, and race and class divisions. The characters seemed human and real. ( )
