A bomb, thrown by a supervillain, kills one of Z City's superheroes. There's footage of the death, and plenty of witnesses. It's an open and shut case for the Division of Superhuman Crime. The supervillain is going to prison, never to breathe free air again.But the superhero's widow, of all people, believes the villain was set up, and she's hired Johnny Wagner, the self-proclaimed Godlike PI, to investigate the murder. Equipped with a God Arm, Johnny is a determined, resourceful, and powerful private eye – except when the god on his arm is acting ornery, or when the women in his life drive him to distraction, or when he worries about paying off his many debts.As Johnny struggles with his questionable decisions and the arrogant bellowing of his god, he finds both the villains and the heroes of Z City have him in their crosshairs. Everyone, it seems, wants the truth of the murder to remain buried – and they're willing to ruin or kill anyone who digs too deeply.Can Johnny solve this case without getting vaporized or – even worse – going deeper into debt?Featuring high-octane action, forbidden romance, scheming government officials, and a villain who dresses up in a squirrel costume, Matt Cowper's latest novel takes superhero fiction to astounding new heights. Welcome to Z City, a place you'll never want to leave, even when someone's firing a lambda beam at you!
