Noir Do Well Brought to Justice
Gregg brings yesterday's local superheroes back in to life beautifullly through prose, plot and performance.

Another solid installment from Gregg Taylor
This is Gregg Taylor's third Red Panda novel and sees the return of Captain Clockwork, a villain from his outstanding ongoing audio drama series, take center stage. As usual the performance that Gregg provides is a highlight. He knows these characters so well that they leap out at you as fully living entities. The action scenes were some of the best yet, with a few genuinely heart stopping moments along the way. Kit Baxter, the Red Panda's partner in crime-fighting also gets her own moment in the sun as she seeks to stem the tide of terror in the city with the help of a handful of agents after the Red Panda is taken out of the picture for a while. While still an entertaining and well produced listen I couldn't give this one more than three stars for the story. While the ending satisfies the logic of the story it felt a little too abrupt. I'm a huge fan of Gregg's work, but I almost felt there needed to be another chapter in there at the end (and perhaps a chase) to give it that four or five star rating. That said, don't be put off. It seems to me that the sign of a genuinely gifted writer is the capacity to leave the reader/listener wanting more. I definitely want more and hope Gregg sees his way clear to write another novel some time soon. In the mean time I'll be tuning in to decoder ring theatre to catch the masked marvel's latest adventures and (of course recommending these books to all my friends).
