120:120 Torchwood: Another Life by Peter Anghelides

The first book in the books for the Torchwood TV series.  The Torchwood team is trying to track down a killer that is gnawing out the back of vagrants heads.  What they don't realize until they find the person they think is behind it is that he is just a pawn being controlled by another, almost definitely alien intelligence.  In the midst of their investigation, a storm the likes of which has never been seen around Cardiff is underway and the entire city is flooding and some nuclear rods have gone missing and while doing the autopsy on their first suspect, Owen has come down with a bad case of radiation poisoning which puts him out of the action and left to his own devices.  As anyone familiar with the series knows, that is never a good thing.

I've seen all of Torchwood (even Children of Earth and Miracle Day which were awful) and I felt the writing was a bit stiff in this one at times which made it harder to get into.  Also the plot was really hard to get into until over half way when things finally started coming together which again, just made it hard to get into.  Overall it wasn't bad but it just wasn't great either and I was hoping for better.
