Miriam Black is back. She’s working. It doesn’t work out. Fortunately, a murderer turns up just as she’s quitting and reminds her of her true place: not in a trailer park in Toxicville, NJ.
Wendig is on form – despite a continuity shamble or two, this novel grabs you by the face and drags you along for 384 pages.
Where’s it going? Blood. Shouting. Snark. Anger.
It would be great to get deeper insight into Miriam as a character, not just her role and powers, but it’s, a bloody good, gripping read – perfect for a British (rainy) summer’s day.
