Another installment in the Vertigo Crime line and another pretty good book. I still have a problem with the price for what it is size-wise. Here, Matteo Casali tells the story of a former Rwandan who grew up in the middle of genocide and now has memories flying back to him in the middle of his new life as a LAPD Detective. The story is decent but the twist was predictable and the overall narration by a local radio shock job as grating and would have been better served as a small dose. I feel we could have known the main characters more with more from them. The book is very brutal and graphic but that's what you expect from Vertigo Crime. The art, by Krisian Donaldson was really good. The black and white palette made the book more ominous in my opinion and it really worked. Overall, this was pretty good but not spectacular.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
