This is one of those times I wish I could give half stars, because I would readily give this book three and a half stars. I liked it a lot, just not enough to give it four. There's an issue with the book I can't put my finger on, as if it builds up toward something that never really comes together. Ultimately though, it's a fast-paced noir with a neat idea: a reporter investigating a conspiracy about a superhero.
I read this awhile back. its got a great love scene in the middle, and the protagonist is a riot. recommended.
