Constantine becomes one of the housemates at a horror version of Big Brother in order to solve a supernatural murder, only to realize that he has been tricked into the house by the denizens of Hell. The premise is not exactly a stroke of genius, but as Rankin is a practiced plot-writer, the story was intriguing and kept me turning the pages to see how it all would resolve. The writing is not exceptional but stays true to Constantine's voice and although the stark black-and-white drawings are not my favorite, they do add a noir feel to the story. What results is a decent part of the mythos for Constantine-fans and an imaginative addition to the oeuvre for Rankin-fans, but I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wasn't one or the other.

Ian Rankin does a John Constantine graphic novel - brilliant for fans of either! There's a new reality TV show, based on scaring the participants. But more frights than the producers have set up are appearing. Or so they say, when enlisting Constantine as supernatural detective/ghost buster. Good story line; but the black & white art work isn't my favourite Constantine. (Not the worst, either, just not great.)
