Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The long-awaited graphic novel release of Brubaker (Fatale) and Lark’s (Daredevil; Gotham Central) Eisner Award–nominated, classic PI crime fiction begins when PI Jack Herriman is hired for a simple missing persons case. Herriman soon discovers there is nothing routine about the case, and he has no problem finding the missing person, Maggie Jordan. But when Jordan is discovered dead the following day, Herriman feels the need to uncover the real story behind her disappearance and murder. His investigation eventually reveals Jordan’s dark family history with Mitchell Luna, the patriarchal leader of a cultish free-love group called Lunarhouse. The book also includes a short story featuring Herriman (“God and Sinners”) and an extras section with excerpts of the script, pencils, and inks.

Verdict This title is representative of superior writing and its importance in launching Brubaker’s career. It should appeal to all graphic novel readers but even more so to crime fiction aficionados working in film and other literary genres.—Scott Vieira, Sam Houston State Univ. Lib., Huntsville, TX

    Surprisingly good

    I'd been looking for a really good, intelligent mystery story, and it's tough to find them these days (can someone please make Sue Grafton stop writing!) <p> This book was a little Dashiel Hammet in it's style but very modern (and didn't have a confusing array of characters as in some of Hammet's books). <p> Truly smart, well-written piece of work. Like a brilliant film in book form!
