"It's a parallel-universe, Prohibition-era world of mooks and shamuses that is the twisted magic mirror to our bustling Big Apple. It's a city where sinister characters lurk around every corner while the great superheroes who once kept the streets safe have fallen into deadly rivalries and feuds. Not that its colourful residents know anything about the real New York ... until detective Rad Bradley makes a discovery that will change the lives of all its inhabitants."--P. [4] of cover.

This combines a lot of my favorite things: pulp/comic book superheroes, hardboiled detectives, weird science, and a twisty plot. The plot twists get a little too twisty at the very end (although the same could be said about Raymond Chandler's novels), but overall, this is a very fun ride.

Disappointing. A strong start but the plot falters toward the end. Too bad, because the setting and characters are excellent.
