My name’s Markowski. I carry a badge. Also, a crucifix, some wooden stakes, a big vial of holy water, and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets.Thoughts on Known Devil: I think I'm going to apply the phrase "a rollicking good time" to this series. It's just... fun. Dark and bloody, yeah. But fun.
A new supernatural gang is intent on invading Scranton – as if I didn’t have enough to contend with!
Supernatural gang warfare? Not on my watch!

I'm not going to lie, some of the things that Markowski initiates this time around worry me a bit. How far can you bend the rules before it begins to affect you? While I understand why he did some of the things he did (and how his dealings with the supernaturals sometimes lead to things that are better left covered up), once you cross a line, it can be easy to cross it a second time. <--intentionally vague so I don't give away the pertinent points. You're welcome.
Frankly, Scranton is kind of a hot bed of crazy things. Markowski and the Scranton PD have a lot they have to deal with. A LOT. Between power vacuums and dirty politics and those that believe humans are superior to supernaturals, they rarely have a slow night. In fact, I think Markowski wouldn't know what to do with himself if he didn't get called out to deal with as much crazy as he does.
Very fun, fast paced, and with a body count high enough to leave me grinning. I like this crew and the things they have to work through to keep the streets of Scranton safe.
