As the title suggests, the setting for Adam Christopher's debut novel figures prominently. More than a backdrop or an ambiance, Christopher's Empire State comes laden with referential associations and genre nods, as well as the occasional real-world grounding. For, like the finest practitioners of the noir fiction he riffs on, Christopher understands how important setting is to a detective story. The plot follows the efforts of private eye Rad Bradley as he attempts to track down a missing young woman named Sam Saturn. Equally important is the characters with which Christopher populates his world--they seem more like they've stepped out of BLADERUNNER than THE MALTESE FALCON. And then, to top things off, he laces his story with discussions of quantum physics and superhero antics, just to keep readers on their toes.
