Secret is the collision of corporate espionage, private security firms, and the legacy of Cold War misdeeds. There's not a lot to the plot compared to some of Hickman's other work, but wow, here's a bunch of people you really don't want to piss off. It's a violent book about ex-soldier spies going up against each other after the death of one of their number reveals a secret that someone should have really kept better. The alternating black/white/grey with monochromatic color elements and panels is extremely striking, but if you're squeamish about blood, don't read this. And if you want any of your characters to be good people, don't read this either. I'd characterize it as bleak but extremely satisfying spy heist/double-cross fiction.
