Publisher Comments:

Dex is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P.I. Unfortunately, she's less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke - she's into the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex's luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast's casino operation, will clear Dex' debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne's missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex's way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper?

A PI gets a seemingly simple case that gets more complex and dangerous at every turn. We've seen the plot a billion times before, but this time it stands out. Intelligent, full of great characters, wonderfully illustrated.

I loved Rucka's "Whiteout" graphic novels so it was great to discover another crime story of his set in my hometown of Portland which Rucka faithfully puts on display (though perhaps emphasizing the more seedy side)
my only criticism might be that the diversity of the stories' characters is a little wishful thinking for Portland.
note that as with Whiteout, the book would be nothing without his illustrator (in this case Matthew Southworth, in Whiteout's case, Steve Lieber - the things that man could do with white space!)
