"Beatty's art suggests greater detail in the imagination than the pencils and inks on the page, and his tone, in romance, sex, and violence, beautifully matches the emotional arc of the story. The graphic nature of both the story and the art captures a bleak but powerful tale of someone who doesn't really want redemption" --Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Without spoiling the story, I can say that Michael discovers that (to put it mildly) all is not what it seems. It will be his task to seek revenge, to seek a reconnection with his loved ones and, at least temporarily, to return to Perdition, Kansas.
Collins' narrative is engaging and satisfying, the artwork by Terry Beatty more than up to the task. In the O'Sullivan family saga, Collins has created a truly memorable American crime story. Return to Perdition is not just the title of the book; it is my advice to potential readers. This is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two.
The artwork wasn't badly done, and I did appreciate the part that surprised me, so I at least gave it two stars. This book doesn't lessen my love for the second book of the series or the movie based on the first, but I have no desire to go back and read numbers 3 and 4 (Road to Purgatory and Road to Paradise).
