    Seeing Declan Shalvey's name you knew that as a new story Double Tap had to be something worth reading. A page turner that played on suspense as you had no clue what was in store for these two who obviously failed their task and have to explain themselves for it. Definitely a gritty crime comic Murder Book when you see just what happens after they plead their case. It catches you off guard and leaves you wondering if there is any more to this when there is much you don't know. Though with that said this is one of those stories where you enjoy it for how little you know. The pacing was great and the layout coming from Declan Shalvey really helped move things along moving from point to point in the story. What stands out most is his signature style of making great use of grey tones to show depth and detail. Read Full Review
