One year after the catastrophic events that ended the first series, Red Team survivors Eddie Mellinger and Trudy Giroux are in the doldrums. Considered a political liability, the two are kept busy on small-time cases by their suspicious NYPD commanders... but a chance encounter in the ghetto gives them a chance to get back in the game. Trouble is, it means going far beyond the law... which is what almost got them killed last time around.
"Red Team: Double Tap, Centre Mass features the return of two of my favorite characters, Detectives Eddie Mellinger and Trudy Giroux of the NYPD. The first Red Team saw them survive by the skin of their t more

    It ends a bit too early for my tastes, but you can't miss the fact that it's well told via dialogue and cop drama elements. Most importantly you'll be rooting for the protagonists and will want to see how deep this crime takes them into the criminal underworld. Read Full Review

    The main question for fans of Ennis would be how does this measure up to his best work? Does it hit the heights of Preacher? The answer is no, however, this does in no way mean this is not worth a read. In fact the comic serves its purpose quite well and that purpose is entertainment. This may not be Ennis at his most thought provoking but its Ennis having fun with genre material. Genre material which in Ennis hands never feels cliched or outdated. Read Full Review

    While you don’t necessarily have to have read the first “season” of this series, it does help to understand things a bit more, especially why Eddie and Trudy act the way they do/why they’re given crappy jobs on the task force. It’ll be really interesting to see how they both conduct this new case they’ve taken over. This is a great way to start the new series; I’m really excited that Eddie and Trudy are back and just as awesome as they were in the first series of Red Team. Ennis is sure to give us some nice plot twists, turns, surprises, and action. Keep reading to see what kind of mayhem these two NYPD cops get themselves into! Read Full Review

    It's too early to tell how engaged I'll be by the story as it progresses. I may be an Ennis fanboy, but even I can't love everything he writes (although I try, baby. I try). So far I like the voices of the main characters and the book seems to be largely about them and their job, so a good sign. My recommendation is it's probably worth going back to read the original Red Teambefore picking this up, but if you don't feel like putting in the effort to update your Amazon queue, this book is very readable on its own. It's a simple cop story, and for once that isn't a bad thing. Read Full Review
