What a superb story in Immoral Origins by Lee Matthew Goldberg. I am a definite fan of this author! Whatever this author writes, I want to read. The characters had a lot of depth, and were very realistic. This is the first book in The Desire Card series. It is definitely a heart-pounding, whats-going-to-happen-next thriller. Here we are, 1978 NYC, more precise, Hell's Kitchen. The reader is introduced to Jake, and he is a raw and intense character that leads the reader through this fast-paced, action filled story. Organized crime, death, impending doom, and survival is brought into this multi-layered story. Both thrilling and intriguing, all the way to the end. The characterizations are engrossing and dynamic. I just love, love, love this story. Masterfully written! This author not only tells the story but shows it with words as well. Immoral Origins is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
