This collection kicks down that wall with the excellent Family Man arc, as John tracks down a serial killer. The writing is tense and not over-reliant on narrative boxes, the characters are interesting (like a collector of serial killer memorabilia), and the finale and epilogue to the arc both show a good deal of Constantine's character. It doesn't read like Delano's other works, and that works out for the better.
Unfortunately, the non-arc stories don't quite live up. New Tricks, a non-Delano story, is interesting but not particularly fantastic. Sundays Are Different goes right back into Delano's weaknesses, switching from John talking with a new-age couple about the turn of the 90s to some weird world of everybody speaking in anagrams. I'm sure it means something to somebody, but for me, it's not really a story so much as a ramble.
Overall though, this book is definitely worth reading and recommending. Easily the best of the Delano collections.
