Hey! An intro by Patton Oswalt! Cool! You know it must be good.
And it was. Better than I expected, which means a lot considering the other Criminal
titles, because they are all excellent. All that I have read thus far have a tended to punch me in the gut-- which is a good thing. Brubaker pulls no punches, but his punches are placed with artistry. He's the Muhammad Ali of crime fiction. This one is no different, and I might even give it a 5 +. Phillips' artwork was masterfully subtle and evocative. All in all, a beautiful work.
This is a short review because little more needs to be said. Read it. You won't be disappointed.
