Harley gets down to business in her guise as a psychiatrist, but the parade of troubled folks she encounters makes her look sane. Meanwhile, Harley is still wanted for the murder of a police officer, and she’s got some very hot stolen goods on her to boot. Plus, don’t miss her all-new--sort of--costume, and delight as she gets shot not once, but twice. All the action, all the drama and a few jokes thrown in for good measure.

Lieberman has adopted a writing style that doesn't really flow forward, but rather it jerks its way from scene to scene like t Read Full Review
