Those Who Walk in Darkness Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Those Who Walk in Darkness



Warner, May 2003, 24.95, 310 pp.
ISBN: 044653093X

When the first super do-gooder Nightshift appeared, he stopped crime with his powers. Apparently, there is some universal need to balance the scale so soon after other superheroes and just as potent supervillains surface. Normal humans watched the fights from the sidelines hoping not to be caught in the crossfire of a car being tossed like a baseball. Everything abruptly changes when the supers fight and Bludlust destroys San Francisco. The outraged human populace passes laws outlawing superdom and special police units form to hunt down these powerful beings regardless of whether they are heroes or villains.

Soledad O'Roark joins LAPD's Metanormal Tactical Unit to stop superhumans in spite of the extraordinary high death rate amongst her peers. She scientifically attacks each super by studying their weakness and modifying her weaponry to defeat them. She earns a reputation as a super hunter. Her biggest nemesis is that her lover is the greatest telepathic villain of them all.
