note ~ I have not read Swine Fever or Psykogeddon (2006) , they are supposed to be the weakest in the series
although Psykogeddon is a nightmare to buy at a decent price , seems to be very rare and very expensive

After the first David Bishop Dredd book I read (see my review of "The Savage Amusement"), I was not expecting much from this story. But I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't even seem like the same author wrote both stories. The story had a great flow to it, great supporting characters (who you actually cared about and became invested in), and plenty of well-written and typical Judge Dredd (and I mean that in a good way).
The story involves a crime boss, who, up to this point, has been untouchable, staying far away from any of the crimes he's orchestrated. But now he's setting up for the big score by gaining control of some serious weaponry, offering "protection" to foreign mega-cities for large sums of creds. Of course to show he has the weapons, he's planning on "demoing" them on our beloved Mega-City One, leaving Judge Dredd to deal with the creep and all his ruthless cohorts.
A fun and captivating read, I read this as part of a "Dredd" collection: 3 stories in one book, tied-in to the 2012 Dredd movie (and featuring Karl Urban's Dredd on the cover).
After the last two books having taking Dredd outside of Mega-City One, this book brings us back to the home city of Judge Dredd, and it feels good to be home.
There is a lot going on in this book, and it keeps you guessing throughout. You are never quite sure which way it will turn.
In my opinion, this is the best Black Flame Judge Dredd book so far. I am hooked on this series, and if you are thinking of trying one of the Dredd novels, this is the one to try. You won't regret it.
While there is a small amount of reference to sexual activities, it is done tastefully, not graphically, and is not covered in detail.
