    If police procedural dramas are you're cup of tea, then this book is exactly what you've been waiting for, as this is the closest I've ever seen a comic come to conveying the investigative storytelling technique that is a cornerstone of this genre. The material that details the investigation of Bonnie Lewis murder is very engaging, and the book does a wonderful job of dishing out the clues, and offering up potential suspects, without tipping it's hand, as by the end I still hadn't cross any names off the suspect list. The interaction between the two detectives is also quite strong, as Driver's new partner is delightfully grounded, and Driver himself is also a pleasant surprise, as you get the sense that he wants to solve this case, but in spite of his partner's death he's not overly morose. The Firebug case is also quite entertaining as it does a wonderful job of selling the idea that this book is set in the DCU, but these police officers are not super-heroes, capable of extraordinary Read Full Review
