Blade Runner Ash of the Los Angeles Police Department has been assigned to investigate the disappearance of Isobel and Cleo Selwyn, the wife and daughter of business tycoon, Alexander Selwyn. Using data retrieved from Isobel’s abandoned Spinner, Ash followed Isobel’s trail and found herself confronting a Replicant tells her to "Ask Alexander Selwyn why he wants his daughter dead..."

Issue #3 of Blade Runner 2019 sees the narrative once again attempting to throw the reader off the scent. Is Alexander Selwyn a good guy trying to get his wife and daughter back? Or are they on the run from him because he wants them dead? In this issue, both may be true, and it's down to Ash to investigate and get to the bottom of the mystery... even if it means doing a deal with the devil.

The story moves on at a good pace and once you've read this you'll be drawn to go back to issue #1 and #2 to see if you can fathom the real motives of characters that previously appeared as seemingly small and insignificant roles in the story.

The mystery deepens, keeping you hooked and by the end of this issue you'll be as intrigued as Ash to work out what is really going on.
