"Any more twisted and I'd have to arrest you."
In book two of Thrillkiller, Chaykin panders to the Dick Grayson fans. This issue fleshes out the romance of this Elseworld Batgirl and Robin, with a weird triangle that ties in Bruce Wayne. In this universe Grayson is not an orphan before becoming Robin, he falls into the role of Robin because of love, where I felt that their was almost an Oedipus desire for Barbara, which is an angle of their romance I don't know if it has been explored.
What makes a good crime story strong is a few things, one being selling sex, which this issues does in spades. Another thing is the pace of the story and the red-herrings laid out along the way. The pace is great and it is early to say what is just red herrings, but this issue leaves off that I have to read the next one.
If Noirish Plup stories are your thing, Thrillkiller is a series you many want to look into.
