[Review] The Question: Pipeline


The Question: PipelineThe Question: Pipeline by Greg Rucka

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Question, Renee Montoya, is contacted by a man who is desperately looking for his sister. After doing some investigation, Renee finds that the girl has been kidnapped by traffickers. Once Renee recovers the man's sister along with some other women who had been kidnapped, she makes it her mission to find out who runs the trafficking ring and bring them down. Along the way, she teams up with Huntress whose money and skills come in handy for Renee's operation.

I loved this story. I thought it was well-crafted with just enough action and just enough storytelling to keep me engaged. Renee is such an interesting character, and it's great to see her getting the exposure she needs by giving her a role that highly suits her. The story takes a bit of an unexpected twist toward the end. I expected many things to happen, but it went the last place that would've come to my mind, and the ending had me holding my breath a little and wondering what comic I needed to read to get the answer to the question (no pun intended) it ended with.

Note: I've decided to push some of my reviews to my website automatically to save time. I read so many books that I can't quite possible review them all. So, the short reviews that I post for some will be posted on Blogger if I have no intention of writing a longer review.

This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
