I've been reading a bunch of Greg Rucka comics lately and wondering whatever happened to his Queen and Country comics. Those were great grim spy stories, with Steve Rolston art. But they'd turned into novels instead, apparently. This is the first. The book starts with a firebombing in the London Underground—which sounded familiar. Was Rucka exploiting the 2005 Underground firebombs? Apparently not, since this book is from 2004. It's a thriller, as our heroine Tara Chace strikes back at the terrorists, only to get drawn into a web of deceit and betrayal like all those other thrillers. Except I didn't hate this one, maybe because I'd grown to like the characters from their comic book days.
