This was a wonderful throwback to the days of pulp fiction. Hardluck Hannigan is a great character reminiscent of the classic pulp heroes: brave and chivalrous, yet with a dark past. The action was nonstop and the plot intriguing. My only complaint was the immortal Dr. Ragnorok, who was a tad overthe top as a villain. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt, though that only makes me want to read the sequel!
