Spademan is a man with a lot of mystery. Once, he was an average person with a decent profession and a loving wife, but after the attacks, things went south for him. Now he is a contract killer. He harbors in the now forgotten New York City in an era where digital desires flourish. Someone has a made call and given him a name. All he has to do is kill. However, this contract kill is unlike any he has ever encountered. The man behind this "target" is very powerful. Too powerful to dismiss! The plot thickens when he comes to bear the truth of who this powerful man truly is.

Gosh, I was absorbed in this story from the very beginning! Author Adam Sternbergh has written an attractive noir fic, but I think he could have shed some more light on Spademan's past. I think that would have amped up the story-line twofold. Alas, his style of writing made up for it!
