Instead, Tara settles for a night on the town and the distractions it has to offer. The latest in the ongoing espionage saga by noted author Greg Rucka (Detective Comics) features slick artwork by the team of Brian Hurtt (Captain America #50) and Christine Norrie (Hopeless Savages), with a gorgeous painted cover by Dr. Mid-Nite artist John K.
