Format: Paperback
"Dark Maze" follows up "Sea of Green", and it doesn't disappoint. our hero, Hock, now has to find a homeless man who is connected to a series of murders. This man, "Picasso", is connected to the Coney Island scene, and thus, Hock has to untangle the intricacies of thier politics. The story is still honest, as Hock tries to understand just who Picasso is before someone else dies. You are kept at the seat of your patns until the final, bloody ending. Great story, but not quite "Sea of Green"

This is not a bad book, but it isn't a great one either. I knew that the obvious suspect wasn't going to be the murderer, however the real murderer was unexpected. I felt that the author didn't give enough information to lead someone to figure out who the murderer was. In fact once I found out who the murderer was, I had to go back through the book to remember the character.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Some good characterization and sense of atmosphere. But some maddening moments of complete unreality as well. It has an awful cliche of pulp fiction, the face of a dead body expressing some final thought of the victim: "The corners of her lips were turned up slightly as if she had been sneering at somebody she knew well enough to despise ... 'From the look of her ... I think the lady received unpleasant news.' " Sorry, the face of a corpse doesn't hold on to some expression it had just before death -- all the muscles release, at least until rigor mortis sets in. And later in the book, and even more absurdly, a person commits suicide by shooting himself in the head THREE TIMES! "He ... put the barrel in his ear and popped off three shots." Really? You don't think after the first bullet enters the brain it might be a wee difficult to pull the trigger twice more? Adcock has many good points to his writing (he teaches creative writing at several colleges), but he really needs to think more carefully about moments like those that take any thinking reader completely out of the story.
