Skillman and Soriano weave a twisted tale of classic noir. The story keeps you guessing until the end, and the art delivers the right blend of pitch-black shadows and crisp, sexy line work. --Sean Phillips, artist of Criminal, Incognito, and Sleeper "Loved it. The dialogue crackles, the art's delicious, and the moral ambiguity hits you like a fist in the belly. This is noir at its best."--Charles Ardai, author of Songs of Innocence, Little Girl Lost, and publisher of the Hard Case Crime series THE WAY HE INVESTIGATES IS A CRIME IN ITSELF. Nick Archer isn't much of a detective, but he's managed to get himself one pretty sweet surveillance gig: once a week he sends a jealous millionaire the photos that prove his wife is faithful, leaving Nick plenty of free nights to spend making a liar of both himself and the client's wife. But when the client turns up dead, his cheating wife is the prime suspect and it's up to Nick to clear her-- except Nick has an agenda of his own, and connections to this case that go deeper than anyone realizes. An amazing crime noir debut!
