Exclusively on Amazon
If you lose a black cape, and can’t go to the cops, then you come to me because that’s what I do. I’ve been in the game for years. I know all the curves and all the angles, and if it gets rough then so be it, I got plenty strength, I’m double tough, and I never quit. And if need be I’ll pull my artillery to get you some answers, because I don’t care about the mistakes you’ve made or how you chose to live your life, sometimes even the unjust deserve a little justice.
At least that’s how it was before a mysterious murder threatens to plunge Gold Coast City into a super powered war unless I find the killer in five days' time. But getting to the truth won’t be so easy. I’ll have to face ruthless black capes with secrets to hide, a powerful government agency bent on national expansion, and even teams of white caped heroes whose intentions are less than pure.
No easy task for a small time PI, so I’ll need every bit of my strength and guts if I’m going to find the killer, save my city, and maybe even get some justice for the greatest hero the world has ever known.
Called into the Syndicate (black cape territory), Dane is given a new case. It seems pretty straight forward. Find a killer and bring him/her back to "us". Unfortunately, there are a series of prim suspects and though the white-cape superhero, Pinnacle (the vic) is as good as they get, he still had enemies.
Dane Curse proves to be quite entertaining with his one-liners and quick reflexes. He's created remarkably well and it didn't take long for me to really like him and the others. By others, I mean super powered individuals with awesome superhero names like Hoarfrost, Church Mouse and Lynchpin.
There was a solid mystery to go on too. Dane revealed just enough to keep the reader engaged. Plus, there's sharp, quick chapters which are hard to stop once you've started.
