Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This thriller mixes medical procedural investigations with the paranormal, but is so packed with characters and details both scientific and supernatural that there's little space to let the tension breathe and build. Det. Joely Huffman of the NYPD is presented with a strange murder victim: a dead man with an invisible head. She needs the help of Randal Horne, an eccentric doctor who left the medical profession under haunting, dubious circumstances, as well as a support team of CDC scientists to solve the case. When Horne's recruited by the CDC to specialize in bizarre cases, he turns to Huffman for help with a death tinged with suspicions of lycanthropy in Portland, Maine. The narrative is crowded, and creates fast-moving mysteries with few twists and turns along the way and surprises that are too clearly telegraphed. The art is suitably moody and the characters rendered expressively, but it won't leave anyone sleeping with the lights on. (Jan.)

    Reviewed by Janessa, Age 15
    I wasn’t expecting one hundred twenty pages when I requested this title for review. I was excited to read this and could hardly contain myself once I had it in my hands. The artwork is very well done, using darker tones to convey this story as a suspense/horror style graphic novel. With a strong female protagonist as the leading detective, it gives the story about a dead scientist a little softer side and compassion, while never losing her rough-around-the-edges appeal that keeps the guys in line. 
    “Cardiologist? is that how we’re referring to Doctor Horne? How about “keeper of the weird….” Does that work as a medical specialty?”
    This graphic novel is about a reclusive scientist who is found dead and headless, except his head is still attached to his corpse, just invisible. However, the real scientist isn’t really dead and people are paying the ultimate sacrifice because of his deception. This is just the first of many more adventures that detective Huffman will uncover on her journey to solve this crime.
