Part 2 of 1

This combined with book 6 is a great story. The ywo as seperate entities leave a lot of holes. Read both before judging.

Superheros, crime, and detectives!

While I don't normally read a lot of science fiction, I have to admit that the author(s) have created a very clever premise here in the Wild Cards series. What can be more fun than a world full of superheros? This story line follows two main characters, Private Detective Jay Ackroyd (Popinjay - who can "pop" e.g. teleport people to anywhere he wishes by forming his hand into the shape of a gun) and Daniel Brennan (Yeoman) who is an expert at archery. They both separately try to track down the person who murdered their former love interest, Chrysalis. Jay Acovone and Adrian Paul both did a wonderful job performing this book. I loved the accents and personalities they gave the characters. Adrian was great as the cool, calculated man in the black mask, and Jay was perfect for the voice a New York Private detective with wry humor and quick wits.
