He doesn't know the case he's been hired to deliver to a law firm in Las Vegas is empty...a decoy. And he doesn't know that the road ahead holds only pain, heartache...and murder.

Excellent storytelling from someone I've never read before - not too much detail, not too little; characters whose motivations don't play to bland stereotypes; action that jumps the plot along without losing the reader. I'll look forward to what Broderick can do with more resources (colour artist for example) - this book sat on my shelf for a year in part because it's the cheapo B&W, and that's a shame because the creators definitely deserve more respect and readership than that.
The first of the Odd Jobs series Cash & Carry is a must read for Graphic Novel enthusiasts both young and old. Broderick is an excellent story teller and the art reminds me of the Dick Tracey comic strip. If you are into Graphic Novels or just want a fun quick read, check this one out. It's worth every minute.
