Here's the set-up for Least Wanted:

Stephanie Ann "Sam" McRae's busy but orderly life as a Maryland lawyer takes a chaotic turn when two clients are accused of murder. A poor, black girl is accused of killing her mother. A young man suspected of embezzlement is accused of murdering his boss. The cases collide in a bizarre way involving girl gangs and computer pornography.

Sam ventures into the heart of DC's suburban ghettos to find answers. A maniacal killer who'll do anything to hide them stalks her. After a nearly disastrous confrontation, Sam must do business on the run. As the body count grows, Sam races to learn the truth and clear her clients before she becomes the next victim.

The stakes rise considerably as more people die at the hands of a maniacal killer who'll do anything to keep Sam from learning the truth. Sam races to clear her clients before she becomes the next victim.

Reviews and recommendations:

"Least Wanted is a brave, heartbreaking, and thrilling book with a complex plot that takes attorney Sam McRae on a dizzying tour of several circles of urban hell, against a backdrop of white-collar crime. I loved it, and I admire Mack for writing it without flinching or suggesting easy answers. It's a sequel that outdoes IDENTITY CRISIS and holds the promise of a great series." -- Timothy Hallinan, author of THE QUEEN OF PATPONG and CRASHED

"In LEAST WANTED, Debbi Mack serves up a solid mystery plot wired together with high octane suspense. -- Austin S. Camacho, author of the Hannibal Jones mystery series

"Sam McRae is back and as brash as ever, with a colorful cast, a relentless plot, and enough twists to leave you breathless. Debbi Mack has carved her own niche in the mystery pantheon."  -- Scott Nicholson, author of DISINTEGRATION

"Least Wanted hooks you from the start and never lets go. A fascinating and absorbing mystery." -- Simon Wood, author of LOWLIFES

"Fast-paced and brimming with dark, twisting plot turns, LEAST WANTED will keep crime and mystery buffs off balance and guessing until the very end."  -- J.T. Cummins, author of COBBLESTONES

About the Author

Debbi Mack's  dream has always been to be a writer. That dream got deferred by 12 years while going to law school and practicing law. However, not to be denied, she left the practice of law to take up writing as an occupation. She was a freelance and fiction writer for about 13 years (during which time, she also picked up a Master of Library Science degree). Now, she's writing fiction almost exclusively.

Debbi writes hardboiled mystery novels. Her debut novel IDENTITY CRISIS introduced lawyer Stephanie Ann "Sam" McRae in a complex story of murder and identity theft. In the sequel, Least Wanted, Sam ends up scrambling to stay alive while trying to find the killers in two seemingly unrelated cases that both involve the seamy world of girl gangs and computer pornography. 

Debbi's a Derringer-nominated short story writer who's published an anthology of her work called FIVE UNEASY PIECES. She's written a crime caper and a thriller that she hopes to publish someday. She's working on more books in the Sam McRae series, as well as a young adult novel. She's also written two screenplays--one feature film and one TV pilot. (Who knows? Maybe someday she'll find a willing producer?)
