Nick Kelly's tale of Leon Caliber, aka "Catwalk" is a dark, gripping tale of a cybernetically enhanced policeman turned hitman in the sordid post-apocalyptic world of Los Angeles filled with crime, greed, violence, high living and--oh yes--the appearance of Meta Humans who are part person, part machine and all destructive power. Contemporary versions of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse are unleashed on the city and its hapless population, and it is up to Catwalk to overcome his past and defeat these creatures masterminded by an evil scientist, with a lot of help from his friends.

Nick Kelly excels in this work, featuring a peerless sense of style, a narrative flow that grabs the reader by the throat and won't let go and some of the oddest and most original characters to stain the pages of this or any other novel. The roots of the story run deep into Elizabethan revenge plays, but the telling is as contemporary as tomorrow's headlines.

This nightmare come to life is not for everyone, but for anyone who wants a ripping good yarn told by a talented young author, this read is for you. Don't delay in getting your copy as soon as you can. Catwalk and his friends (and his nightmare enemies)are waiting to show you a scary good time.

It's been awhile since I've read such a fun, fast-paced cyberpunk book. Action packed, with a wry sense of humor I enjoyed my time with 'Catwalk', and looking forward to the next adventure!

Excellent first effort by author Kelly. He skilfully captures the essence of cyberpunk/sci-fi comic book in quick reading prose. I look forward to reading the next in the series. A sure bet for fans of post-apocalyptic sci-fi fans.

In the beginning, it was hard to grasp. The main character was hard flesh out without a point of reference. My lack of imagination had a difficult time creating an image of exactly what "catwalk" looked like. Once I got past the initial issues the book was a decent read. I am not a big fan of jumping around in a story unless your side stories have a purpose and tie it all together. Some of the side stories never panned out. It left me wondering what happened. In my opinion, the book could have been longer and completed the side stories for a better understanding of the main characters.

What a surprise I loved Catwalk: Messiah by Nick Kelly. Looking at the cover I thought it was going to be a android robotic tale that I might not like. Surprise, I loved it! Actually this is a very futuristic book set in the year 2033. It is the exploits of a former cop named Leon "Catwalk" Caliber. Catwalk was anything but your typical cop - he was the cop that chased down rogue machines that needed to be "retired". Cat left the beat of being a cop but continued to be a "cleaner". Now instead of retiring rogue machines he kills and destroys for those that can afford to pay him. Problems arise when Cat becomes the target. As gun for hire in the City of Angels Cat's training as a cop is useful in this new life as a hit man that is up for any challenge if the money is right.

The year 2033 is a very violent time and Kelly describes these battles between Catwalk and his foe in great detail that leave me hoping this book will become a movie. Kelly's ability to draw the reader into the scenes makes this a wonderful read. I do not want to spoil the story but I will tell you it is a page turner till the end. Some will say this is a book for the Young Adult reader. I, however, believe this is a great read for those like myself that are young at heart. This book at times reminded me of Dick Tracey and other heroes of my youth only faced with an apocalyptic challenges. The detail Kelly describes the way that Catwalk is able to function is intriguing and wonderfully detailed. Cat is a human that is technologically enhanced while fully human in his emotions.

Enjoy! I look forward to the next installment in this series and hope for a movie for this one!

Recommended to me after enjoying Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep, I found this book and the world created in it fascinating.

The story has an interesting take on cybernetic body modifications, all tied together with a hero you're actively cheering for and a 'chit' ton of action. The author jumped between characters throughout which personally I enjoyed, as it gave a great sense of the chaotic life Catwalk lives.

I'll be waiting anxiously for the next in the series!
