Point - John Meaney

The sequel to Edge is still interesting, with its blend of scary psychology and hypnotist and cyberpunk special forces infiltration as the loss of young family for both Josh Cumberland and knife fighter supremo Matt Carlsen leads to an alliance aimed at finishing the job of taking down the Tyndall Empire and the government. As well as hypnotists vs hypnotist.

Some brutal infighting, too, perhaps a little reminiscent of the close combat poetry of Peter O'Donnell's Modesty Blaise writing.

Be well suited to some shorter works this character ensemble, too, I think. Anything Meaney comes up with (under whichever alias) is worth a look.

3.5 out of 5
