This is the first of five issues in this mini-series. As introductory issues go, this one wasn’t bad at all. Using a more realistic point of view, the writer allows us (the readers) to experience events and find evidence and clues simultaneously with our main character.
The main character is Sharon. Sharon has not had what an average person would deem an easy life, not by any means.
Currently, she is on the warpath, looking for any clue, any shred of evidence to help her figure out who murdered her father. She has obtained the police files on the crime, in a very simple and almost comical way.
Now, Sharon is an aggressive gal. She’s a no-nonsense, take no shit kind of woman. She also happens to dislike any and all obstacles that come about on her search for vengeance. She is incredibly strong and has some moves that hint at some sort of special training. It’s not like she picked up these fighting moves while watching Jem or My Little Pony. She’s got the kind of mad skills that allow her to take down an outrageously overweight scumbag without even breaking a sweat.
But Sharon is deeply angry. She’s vengeful. Full of hate and hostility, she can’t help but let it seep from every pore, infecting everything about her life. Until she finds what she is looking for. Answers.
To make matters worse, while Sharon is looking for people who know about her father’s death, some seemingly very bad people are looking for her. She has no idea who they are or what they want. She just knows it’s not a good thing she’s being hunted.
It’s a race against time for poor Sharon. Will she find the truth she seeks before those who seek her find her?
There is one clue that she finds that gives her hope. That hope is bolstered when similar clues start showing up in other cases. But, a clue out of context isn’t much help.
There is a lot going on in this first issue. A lot to absorb and process. As much as the reader has to process the information as it comes in so does the character. It makes for a very suspenseful and mysterious type of whodunnit kind of start to the series.
