The third installment in the "More" series of dystopian thrillers set in NYC during the Second Great Depression sees the greatest danger to the recurring ragtag team of cops and Feds. More's cover is blown and his CIA handler has been dragged in front of a Congressional investigative committee. Meanwhile the political feud between Republicans and Democrats has reached critical mass during the 2016 presidential conventions in NYC. Two feuding legislators who are using a shadow bank in the city's subway system to move slush funds through have their quarrel spill into open warfare. The Democrat has the entire political apparatus from City Hall to the NY State House to Washington on her side; the Republican has a former Special Forces veteran of Iraq (and More's nemesis) now turned mercenary. Soon full-scale war on a level far above what the NYPD can handle is breaking out all over the city, with the civilian population caught in the crossfire. Only More can save Santiago's team but will he be enough to stop his high-tech military counterpart?

This is the third (and newest) book in Adam Dunn's "Apocalypse Noir" series, featuring the recurring characters NYPD Detective Sixto Santiago (who grumbles a lot but is always entertaining and does good police work) and Special Agent Everett More. Well, I say "Special Agent" More but he is such fascinating, unique anti-hero that we really don't know what department he works for (or if it changes) but he is brilliant and deadly and the reluctant team of More and Santiago are exciting and fun to follow as Dunn's novel twists around a shadow bank set up in a long dormant subway station. Following how the money flows- and who controls it- is remarkably intriguing. Plenty of shoot-outs and chase scenes go along with the many agencies (including FBI, CIA, NYPD, FINRA and Homeland Security) forced to work together to prevent a catastrophe from taking place right in Manhattan under their noses. It is clear Dunn has done his research as many of his storylines continue to actually happen in the news headlines on an almost daily basis, which is another element that makes his books so fresh and compelling. Dunn is an excellent storyteller and the pace of all his books is like a roller coaster ride you don't want to end! Jump on and enjoy the ride!
