Criminal: The Last of the Innocent #4 actually turns the usual crime story convention on its head by giving Riley something of a happy ending. His big murder plot goes off without a hitch, he gets a ton of money, he gets the girl of his dreams, he's happy. So what could go wrong?
This issue is kind of a strange duck in that it works as a great ending to what was a superlative story (I'd say the best Criminal story yet), but as an issue unto itself, there isn't a whole lot to get into. Thought the story sees itself through to its conclusion, the plot is already pretty much done with. Riley has a few bits of business to take care of, but even with the suspicious private eye on his tail, he isn't in any real danger. Any problems he does have he's able to easily dispatch. So...the end?
Overall, a fine issue, but it doesn't work as well without the previous three.
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".
