Jokertown Shuffle - George R. R. Martin

Jokertown Shuffle is of similar quality to the last Wild Cards books. We learn more about Bloat and the Rox, and we discover who the man behind the Jumpers is.

Dr. Tachyon is still annoying, as he becomes involved with yet another woman, and Blaise is still causing problems.

The best part of the book is the mysterious character of Black Shadow getting a star turn, at last.
