The story is set in Dockside City, which is post WWII America, but completely reinvented. Science can do a lot more than we ever knew and it may possibly mix itself with magic. In this world there are people who have special gifts, gift that look and feel like magic… though sometimes in a very dark way. In Dockside City, two very unlikely person band up: pharmaceutical magnate Linda Vie Kaine and Sheldon Webb, ex mobster in search of a new life. They accidentally stumble upon and are subsequently engulfed into a very different kind of mob war, over a machine that can control molecules. This is where the story becomes unique in its own way: Sheldon gets hit by this machine which messes up his complete molecular mass and he becomes able to dissolve into gas and go back to solid form. This novel (which is clearly just the first of a series) is Sheldon’s journey to control his new ‘gift’. The plot lingers a lot on Sheldon and I think this is probably its weakness, since it’s quite clear there is a lot more simmering under the lid than this story lets out. Which is a shame, especially at the end, where we get a glance at everything that may happen afterward, to the point I wonder whether a part of it could have possibly be included in this novel. But the characters are interesting and endearing. The idea is nice. And the premise is very engaging. A nice read.
