I wasn’t sure what to expect from this story – even after reading the prologue – which only fits in close to the end of the second act. What I did get was a gripping detective story which twists one way and then the next.
Our main protagonist isn’t the most likable of characters – he drinks, smokes and potentially steals (and he’s a cop), but you feel yourself warming towards him, and at some points feeling sorry for him.
Finding the villains of the story is harder – some are obvious, but others lurk in a dark and mysterious way – only hinted at until the end.
It’s hard to speak about this without giving too much away!
The story is a dark detective story which mixes popular culture, crime and some of the ore horrifying aspects of history, there is a hint of psychology here, with a fair amount of action.
The art is grey and grim, with some nice close scenes, and I especially like the wide open shots to go on.
If you like some of the darker detective stories – I always remember ‘Cracker’ then this is for you!
