Now that that disclaimer is out of the way, let's get to the book. Our setting is a New York of the near future, but after a series of terrorist attacks have led to the near-abandonment of the city and its takeover by a mix of criminals, government agents, and petty thugs. Dewey Decimal, sometime "fixer" for the D.A., gets orders to rub out a union boss. Naturally, things get complicated, and Dewey finds himself drawn into an increasingly-dangerous plot peopled with war criminals, gun-toting muscle, and one alluring woman who's not at all what she seems.
Quick, dirty, and dark, this one. Dewey's an interesting character, well drawn (and the way Larson has him narrate the book in "real time" adds a certain urgency to the book that keeps it moving very nicely). It reminded me of Jeff Vandermeer's works, and I suspect we'll be seeing more of Mr. Decimal in the future.
