Author Norwood Hollandabout this book: Minus One is the second book published in the Drew Smith Series. I was inspired to write a Perry Mason type series with an urban African American protagonist. This attorney is far from being a role model. As a womanizer he has issues and keeps questionable company. The prequel to the Drew Smith Series takes us back to the beginning when Drew Smith launches his legal career. Before the ink is dry on his license Smith finds himself at the center of a murder mystery. The recent law school graduate works as a hotel concierge and befriends two bellmen Medhat and Julio.

This eclectic trio form a solid fraternal friendship put to the test when Medhat is kidnapped after running up a drug tab he can't pay. Rescued by his crew he then becomes the prime suspect in a string of murders. Driven by their romantic entanglements the attorney is captivated with a pretty Latina whose father objects to her dating a Black man. Julio and his Filipina love find themselves expecting, and Medhat's passion for blondes gets him snared in a femme fatale's net. Minus One captures Drew Smith's evolution from youthful indiscretion to a professional burdened with seriousness of purpose.
