Dime is a remarkable legal thriller by Luis Figueredo that I found hard to put down once I started. Though there are many books, series, and even movies made about the cartel, this one is a bit different and that’s what makes it stand out.
The author sets the stage by introducing the elements of intrigue. Pierce Evangelista is a sharp lawyer hired to defend Juan Carlos because of his arrest for an alleged deal gone bad. It is then we come to know that he is a person of interest due to his association with the Carraboca cartel. The story is fast-paced as we get a close look inside the dangerous world where there are no rules, loyalty, and vicious violence. I was so enthralled that I was imagining myself a part of the team as Pierce, Shane, and their buddies try to navigate the minefield with both the cartel and the DEA after Juan.
The conversations felt very real and takes the reader deep into the story which is pretty well laid out. I just loved the turns and the twists in the story that kept me turning page after page, consuming the content gleefully. Along with an unpredictable and fast-paced theme, the story is equally engrossing. As for the climax, it will surprise everyone as I could not see it coming. A must-read for anyone who is looking for suspenseful fiction with a new twist on the narco-trafficking ecosystem. I really enjoyed this book, but if I had to pick one thing I didn’t like, I would say the length of the book was quite long and a bit daunting.
Dime is a well crafted thriller with unique insights into the criminal world, propelled by compelling legal drama, and punctuated by moments of literary fireworks.
