I recently read Barry Reese's Lazarus Gray: Die Glock, the second in a series of New Pulp Adventures featuring Barry's character, the aforementioned Lazarus Gray. As with the first volume I enjoyed this one immensely. The series is set in the mid 1930's in the fictional Sovereign City. In this volume Lazarus and his team of adventurers (professionally known as Assistance Unlimited) travel outside of Sovereign City in a search for a weapon(The Die Glock) the Nazi's want for their own nefarious use, which can be used as a doorway to another place. A place where something very evil lurks and stirs, and has waited a very long time to return to the earth.
Enter Lazarus Gray and Assistance Unlimited. Members of the team travel around the globe to search out and destroy the weapon. But will they do so before whatever lurks on the other side of that wall between places Die Glock connects to steps through into the world of Earth in the 1930's? You'll have to read it to find out.
Suffice to say, ` Die Glock' Is a good, rousing adventure that does not bore and does not disappoint. Also there is a bonus second feature featuring comic hero "The Black Terror" which is just as enjoyable as the main feature. If you like two fisted stories with lots of action as well as sexy women, demons, disfigured madmen and magic wielding villains, then give `The Adventures of Lazarus Gray: Die Glock' a read. There's really nothing not to like here.
