This book has a number of issues and style choices that I would usually find very offputting, and maybe even dealbreaking taken all together, but the author somehow managed to seize control of my eyeballs and keep them moving across the page until I was surprised, and disappointed, to find myself st...

Mookie Pearl is a thug—a bald, hulking brute of a man that works for the Organization, the syndicated crime ring that runs New York City. He's a harsh, gruff ruffian, and at first, I thought I wouldn't care for his character at all, but as the story progressed and I got a bit more insight into his c...

Mookie Pearl is a great character. I pictured an old, grisly Lawrence Tierney crossed with the Incredi...

How I adore Chuck Wendig! There’s no flowers and unicorns and pretty rainbows and goodness in his worlds. His characters aren’t sweet and righteous and full of morals and ethics. Miriam Black, the “heroine” of his Miriam Black series (Blackbirds & Mockingbirds) is a strong female character…who is al...
