By day she writes comic books. By night, she lives them. MG Martin lives and breathes geek culture. She even works as a writer for the comic book company she idolized as a kid. But despite her love of hooded vigilantes, MG prefers her comics stay on the page. But when someone in LA starts recreating crime scenes from her favorite comic book, MG is the LAPD's best-and only-lead. She recognizes the golden arrow left at the scene as the calling card of her favorite comic book hero. The thing is.superheroes aren't real. Are they? When the too-handsome-for-his-own-good Detective Kildaire asks for her comic book expertise, MG is more than up for the adventure. Unfortunately, MG has a teeny little tendency to not follow rules. And her off-the-books sleuthing may land her in a world of trouble. Because for every superhero, there is a supervillain. And the villain of her story may be closer than she thinks.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Andrea Emmes brings a Betty Boop-like enthusiasm to her voicing of comic devotee MG Martin. When MG remarks on the similarity of a newspaper crime scene photo to a scene from her favorite childhood comic, the detective holding the newspaper recognizes her expertise and hires her as a consultant. Emmes portrays MG as the determined amateur sleuth she is, while making the most of the banter between her and Detective Matteo Kildaire. MG and Matteo's relationship takes advantage of the many pop culture references integrated into the text, which are also used to differentiate Matteo from MG and her friends. Sci-fi and mystery fans will particularly enjoy the humor of Matteo's slow introduction to geek culture and eagerly await the next installment. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
