4.0 out of 5 stars Pulpy PSI... 5 Jan 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anderson was always the darker Judge for me; her character and stories more complex than those of Dredd. Mitchel Scanlon's third Anderson tie-in novel takes this darkness and rolls it up to eleven: SINS OF THE FATHER is as much neo-noir as it is sci-fi; its main storyline focusing on paedophilia.

True to noir, we have a sizeable cast of anti-heroes as opposed to heroes, not least the Judges themselves. In fact, it's the characters that make this book for me. Anderson herself is well represented, but it's Leonard, the misunderstood mutie, that stands out; his story is a tragic and intriguing one that had me hooked all the way through this short novel. Scanlon does a fine job of capturing both the seediness and ridiculousness of Mega City One, too, managing to blend the more campy elements into his bleak vision of the world, some trademark tongue-in-cheek prog humour even creeping in.

The writing style is mostly accessible, albeit clumsy at times. It gets a little rushed towards the end, maybe due to pressure from deadlines. Overall, though, this is a pulpy read which worked for me, with short chapters and plenty of hard-boiled action.

In short, this is a high recommend; my first Anderson tie-in and definitely not my last. Scanlon has done the girl proud.
