When his friend, a computer whiz and former addict who'd brought his life back from the brink, is found dead in his apartment, 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 Michelle Sonnier is plagued by secrets. Against his better judgment, and in a disturbing echo of his past, Jack is pulled further and further into her world, where he discovers more suspicious deaths, all pointing toward a mysterious cover-up.
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.

"Arvin's writing is delightfully sardonic....You'll be hooked." (People)
This is a well-written, hip narrative read by a perfect-for-the-part narrator. I read tons of crime/mystery and this one is entertaining, surprising, and a darn good story! The title is unfortunate in that it is so trite, but don't let this mislead you. A satisfying and enjoyable selection, like a good TV movie...
This book was "OK" but I wouldn't recommend it. It had potential but seemed to drag at times and the ending was a little crazy.... I would give it a 5 or 6 out of 10.
