Switching genres or adding spices to my reads help me enjoy books better. I love picking novels that take me on different paths, and The Last Act did exactly this!
I would like to thank Faber & Faber for inviting me to be part of this blog tour. This review is my unbiased opinion.
Title: The Last Act
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Date of publication: 14.03.2019
Number of pages: 368
Former Broadway star Tommy Jump isn’t getting the roles he once did. As his final run as Sancho Ponza draws to a close, Tommy is getting ready to give up the stage, find a steady paycheck, and settle down with his fiancée.
Cue Special Agent Danny Ruiz. An old school friend of Tommy’s, now with the FBI, Ruiz makes Tommy an offer that sounds too good to refuse. All Tommy has to do is spend six months in prison, acting as failed bank robber ’Pete Goodrich’.
Inside, he must find and befriend Mitchell Dupree, who has hidden a secret cache of documents incriminating enough to take down New Colima, one of Mexico’s largest drug cartels. If Tommy can get Dupree and reveal where the documents are hidden, the FBI will give him $300,000, more than enough to jumpstart a new life. But does he have what it takes to pull off this one final role?
