Inane I made it halfway through and could find no reason to go on. Delicious pulp era fantasy with a noir feel. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Could have been better without the dudes They were empty characters put there to keep the whole story from being too girl power The female heroes just have to married or for some reason they can t wander around saving the USA from Bolshevist Asian anarchist devil worshiping bad guys I have no problem with the love side story, scant as it is, but the american male agents were just as useless to the plot as they were in the story. Gothic horror, a bit older fashioned for today s readers, but pretty good Not as good as Chambers short stories, though, as in his collection The King in Yellow.
