Returning us to the world Taylor introduced in "When Graveyards Yawn", we're caught up in the lives of Ryerson Stone, dead detective, and his assistant, Julien Pachs. Taylor explores this post-apocalyptic world from a different angle in this book, but still in a dark, cynical style. This, like his other novels, is explicitly violent and gory. Taylor invites comparison between the two books and while both Stone and Wildclown are detectives in the post-Change world, they have different sleuthing styles; think Sherlock Holmes vs Phillip Marlow. While the two detectives are very different, they both are in the game to put right the evil that man continues to do, Change or no Change. While I enjoyed (if that's the right word) this book, I think "Graveyards" was the better novel. My biggest complaint with any of Taylor's work is the lack of editing, even though it's noted that an edtor was used. Retch, NOT wretch, for goodness' sake! Two different words, two different meanings and NOT interchangeable. I would recommend.
