    It's never easy for any bibliophile to pick their favorite books, but Rick Lai's SHADOWS OF THE OPERA: RETRIBUTION IN BLOOD (as well as its predecessor MARK OF THE REVENANT) easily occupies my top ten, if not my top five. When seeking out New Pulp, fans look for stories of astonishing heroes who lead them into action-packed adventures. Not only does Lai deliver on that front, he presents a tremendously cerebral experiences as well. Lai's veteran experience with crossover fiction fills this book It's never easy for any bibliophile to pick their favorite books, but Rick Lai's SHADOWS OF THE OPERA: RETRIBUTION IN BLOOD (as well as its predecessor MARK OF THE REVENANT) easily occupies my top ten, if not my top five. When seeking out New Pulp, fans look for stories of astonishing heroes who lead them into action-packed adventures. Not only does Lai deliver on that front, he presents a tremendously cerebral experiences as well. Lai's veteran experience with crossover fiction fills this book with dozens of insightful connections between countless fictional works, from Leroux's Phantom of the Opera to the Cthulhu Mythos and beyond. Simply put, this book is a treat for fans of pulp and Victorian fiction alike, achieving something quite like the old pulps but much, much better. I notice something new with every reread. Unmissable.

    Super Pulp/Spy/Gothic Romance/Masked Avenger stories in the 19th Century BOOK 2 What I love about this book and the one before it, ' Shadows of the Opera', is that in the movie in my mind, the books come alive like a cool late 60's, early 70's movie. Hammer Films costumes and sets and actors like Caroline Munro, Diana Rigg, Julie Newmar and Yvonne Craig have starring roles. Very much 19th Century France according to the swinging 60's/70's. The author, Rick Lai weaves a fantastic tapestry, involving Super Pulp/Spy/Gothic Romance/Masked Avenger stories in the 19th Century BOOK 2 What I love about this book and the one before it, ' Shadows of the Opera', is that in the movie in my mind, the books come alive like a cool late 60's, early 70's movie.

The author, Rick Lai weaves a fantastic tapestry, involving fascinating characters from international literature and cinema, in with his own heroic, crusading female heroes! Lot's of authors CLAIM to write strong women heroes. Rick Lai delivers! I HIGHLY recommend all the books in this series!
