    A Leverage story that's a little lacking on the Leverage style.

    A Leverage story that's a little lacking on the Leverage style.

    If you're a fan of the show, this story is very by the numbers. I could ask a series of very specific questions right now, and if you're someone that's watched enough of this really good television series to think this may be an interesting read, you'll know the answers. If the team is running a con at San Diego Comic Con, which of their recurring characters is most likely to make an appearance? If Hardison is in charge, will he avoid getting into trouble? Why would Nate be very hesitant to go to the convention? I wouldn't say that this is a bad thing. I would say it's a credit to the writing that it was done well enough that people familiar with the show can telegraph what's going to happen at times.

    My problems with it are mostly in style. It's a very linear and straight forward story. Part of what I like about the show is the flashbacks while the end of a con is going down. We follow along with what's happening until something goes wrong with the villain's plan, at which point, we get a flashback that shows how our team of heroes set up what went wrong. Here there's not much of that. Here, they need something to happen, so they'll set that up to happen. And when it pays off, only the bad guy is surprised by it.

    Enjoyed it over all, and will probably give the next one in the series a look at some point down the line.
