He has a means for romance that's as far-reaching as is his reward for homicide. he's our hassle-free, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller’s hypnotic knack for fable. He has an “innate expertise for subordination” yet working via his veins is a “virus” born of the facility over existence and demise. And whereas his most modern task places him on the top of his exchange, it can be mutating into his maximum mistake. . . .
