Format: Hardcover
I picked this up off the library shelf because the color pallate of the cover intrigued me. I'll admit, sometimes I am that shallow.

I'm glad I did. This was a nice little action-packed mystery based on rock-n-roll and drugs.

What I didn't know when I picked it up was that it was part of a series. I think there were a couple of call-backs to character-development things that I missed, but for the most part this is a pretty self-contained book that is a fine way to waste an afternoon.

Format: Hardcover
Dex Parios finally has her own private detective office in Portland and just in time for a new case to come along. When a guitar is stolen from the band Tailhook, Dex is on the case, but things aren't what they seem. Especially when the guitar's owner, Mim, doesn't want to go to the police.

There are skinheads looking for the guitar and DEA agents questioning Dex. When the guitar mysteriously shows up, that isn't the end of the case either. Things heat up and all is resolved as the mystery is uncovered.

It's a good mystery story by Greg Rucka, who also includes an essay on private eyes and how they have influenced him. The art by Matthew Southworth is good and shows the seamier side of Portland. Especially cool are the iconic train station and the Burnside Bridge which feature in the story. Dex is a capable detective that can hold her own amongst any other fictional detectives I've read. I'd like to read more stories featuring her.

I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this graphic novel.
