Books by this author popped up in my recommendations list so thought I'd give one a go.

I enjoyed this book, a free download to my Kindle. It was not until the very end that the identity of Jack O'Judgement is revealed. The Boundary Gang, headed by "Colonel" Boundary, the blackmailer extraordinaire, is "picked off," one by one by the Jack O'Judgement. The book was well written and I enjoyed it.
A fascinating story in which I recognized more than a few scenes from (of all things) Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Well-developed characters and just enough plot twists.
