My rating is divided into two parts:

A. Design
The design of the book with the real clues is simply beautiful. It could hardly be better for a book (which should also remain affordable).
The designer and the printing company have done a very good job and it is simply a pleasure to hold it in your hand.

B. Riddle to guess along
Well - with a bit of good will you can figure something out, but not screaming.

Here are my SPOILERS that will lead you to the result.
1. the clues in the first half of the book are the important ones.
2. forget the two clues in the book. They are not important.
3. important are: Theater ticket, train ticket, postcard
4. what is the play about - it is in the newspaper, you can also find it out in a theater encyclopedia or on the Internet.
5 Which woman really appears as a character in the book?
6. well - it must have been her...
7. now you can gather together from the clues what points to this woman.

I could now write a rant about the fact that no real evidence of any kind has been shown here. "Judge, I'm innocent because I have this ticket to a play about an unhappy wife."

You can read this book for the shear joy of looking at the clues, but don't expect a logical mystery with clues that stand up in court.

My recommendation instead: Murder off Miami

Good twist & turns, maybe tongue in cheek at times

Second collection finalizes the story-line from vol 1. After defeating the attackers from both inside and outside of Ku'n-Lun Iron Fist leads the Heavenly Cities Immortal Weapons to Earth to find out about the mysterious 8th City.

Book is full of fights, exotic locales and mystical kung fu powers and remains loyal to its pulp novel roots. For all means and purposes this is good ol' action adventure that does not try much to flesh out the characters but to take reader for one truly interesting ride.

Art is more diverse than in first volume and (for me) it oscillates between awesome work (Danny Rand's return to K'un-Lun) to extremely simplistic (Lei Kung showing the secret army to Danny). Overall not bad but for me art in first volume was much better.

If you like pulp fiction novels like Mask, Phantom and likes give this one a chance. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Barely alive after attack on PRS base, Bloodshot and children he saved are on the run. Unfortunately Kuretich (PRS scientist that used Bloodshot to save the children from PRS secret base) is trying to control and subdue Bloodshot. All of this opens new front - Toyo Harada and Hrbringer forces also move in as new adversary.

In this one Bloodshot is truly overpowered - while he manages to subdue PRS and their cybernetic mercenaries, Harada and his cohorts prove to be too powerful.

I can only say great volume, I especially like the realism of the conflict - it does not matter if one is a cyborg or civilian, when caught in the crossfire it is usually only Bloodshot who manages to recuperate. Others remain down.

One of the reviews said that it is weird that the paramedic that followed Bloodshot from vol 1 leave Bloodshot and children at the mercy of the PRS and Harbringer corporation.
Well, considering she could only die heroically (but die nevertheless) it is understandable why she was told to move out - Bloodshot gave her new start in life and by moving her from the board freed himself to do what is necessary (considering that children are not defenseless in any way). This enabled him to attack Harada with all he has without risking his friends as possible hostages.

Highly recommended to all fans of action comics.
