Jeff is starting to learn more about himself, his enemies (or are they!?) and his abilities. This book dives straight in and is a bit faster paced than the others. It also has some very dark scenes and a particularly disturbing few pages at the end involving a lot of bodily goo (no spoilers here).
Overall the entire series is well written, very funny and enjoyable to read - sadly the authors simply can't write the books fast enough to keep up with my appetite for more!
This instalment is the darkest and most graphic by far, straight into it from the start. I love these books so much, I read this from start to finish in one go.
Please, please don't make us wait too long for book 5.

This paragraph from Back in Black perfectly encompasses everything that's happened so far in Grobnagger's story and deposits us where we are now: Grobs is a desperate man, thirsty for revenge, willing to go to any lengths to kill Farber. Oh, and being mysteriously slingshot back into those crazy seizures. Which probably means something important, but... Well, you know how Grobnagger is.
In a lot of ways, this book is much darker than the previous three. Grobs's trademark humor is still there, but it's a thin veneer now, his frustration and anger palpable underneath. Every sentence makes you feel like you're hurtling toward inevitable darkness alongside him. It'll make you cringe at times and overwhelm you with foreboding at others. And if you've come to love the guy as much as I have, then this new, reckless version of him is really going to worry you.
The thing with Vargus & McBain's stories is that they never lead you where you think they're going to. They take you down paths you don't see coming, but once you're there, you realize there was never anywhere else the story could have gone. When you get to the end of Back in Black, you'll realize this was always the only way it could have ended. This was where it was always leading. Now it's up to you and Grobs to try to live with it.
Oh, last thing--the ending. I know I've fawned over Vargus & McBain's endings in the past, but this one was amazing! I've never felt nauseous reading a book before, but the last few chapters made me sick to my stomach. It's awesome!
