Jens Deffner (defcons_treklit) has reviewed my 2005 Spider-Man novel Down These Mean Streets for Unreality SF.
The characterisation is always one of Keith R.A. DeCandido's strengths, but he was especially good in this area here. Not only Peter Parker/Spider-Man is portrayed very well, but every character has enough depth to make them more than just bystanders. That's especially true for the “costume”-hating cops, it would have been easy for the author to just make them the usual one-dimensional superhero-hating characters, but there reasoning actually makes a certain sense, and actually makes you see their point to some degree. But really every character has a something making the reader interested in them, be it Hector Diaz, Javier's mother or really almost every character having more than a cameo.
