John Meaney, Black Blood
Bantam (2008) ISBN: 978-0-553-80671-7
Score: 2

The second Tristopolis novel (titled Dark Blood in the UK), containing more gritty violence, creepy scenery, and mind control. This time the good cops have to deal with conspiracies, corruption, bigotry, bad cops, and evil telephones. I find it odd the cover says "by the author of Bone Song" instead of "sequel to", since the first scene shows the execution of one the villains of the previous book; there may or may not be more books in the series.

John Meaney, Bone Song
Bantam (2008) ISBN: 0-553-38514-3
Score: 2

Start of the Tristopolis series, a gritty urban fantasy police procedural. Includes lots of Cool Stuff (like the sentient shape-shifting motorcycle), and the setting and characters were well drawn, but I wish the plot hadn't been about mind controlling lots of characters.

Next Book: Felix Gilman, Thunderer
