User reviews about this book
By Oldster 58
I had mixed feelings about this as I read through it. In places I cringed at the stark violence. Someone else called it "Magnificent Seven in NY" and that is not far off. Like that movie, the deaths of some characters was troubling, but I kept reading drawn in by the story.
In the end, I liked the book and will read the sequel.
This is one of my favorite books! A Graphic and entertaining book. It keeps you interested all the way through.
