I know I'm in the minority but as much as I enjoyed Kiss Me Judas I could not get not this. I tried, I really tried. Overwritten, elliptical noir fantasy. Maybe it's the fantasy part, I've never gone much for that type of thing.

Pretty Dreadful.

Phineas Poe, troubled antihero of Kiss Me, Judas, returns to Denver to find reality rewritten and the laws of reason fractured. When Poe is enlisted by his old ally, Detective Moon, to find a missing cop named Jimmy Sky, he is drawn into the Game of Tongues, a violent fantasy game played out by disaffected college drones, hacker kids, and Goth refugees in underground punk clubs, on rooftops, and in sewers. Everyone he meets has multiple personalities, and before long Poe begins to lose track of his own identity. If he can hang on to his sanity long enough to find Jimmy Sky, he might just beat the game.
