Overview

Bob Moore doesn't have super powers and doesn't want them. What he does have is a metal leg, a dead daughter, and a lot of people with powers to blame.

A former private investigator, Bob made a career of embarrassing supers. His ex-wife, a powerful super and leader of the Super State, has parked the Super City, a levitating metropolis, over Bob's apartment. The location is no accident. Bob is "invited" by the Vice President to become the new US Ambassador after two previous dignitaries have disappeared. A pair of grisly killings with an evidence trail that leads to one of Bob's only allies puts the City, and Bob, on alert.

Trapped in a city full of supers that would love to see him dead, and his ex-wife's life in the balance, Bob must choose whether to save the City, his ex-wife, or let his anger at the supers cost him everything.

Andry has done a brilliant job of pulling together influences from popular culture and blending it with his own unique creativity to really sell the believability of this world and it's inhabitants. The idea of a superhero or main character of a storyline being untouchable was discarded a long time ago and Mr Andry has been sure to keep it in the history books. I recommend this as a must read for those who like action, adventure and just a bit of an exciting romp through a fantastical world.

Doesn't improve on the previous book in the series. In fact, I think things are getting a little worse. Too many "too" problems. The problem is too big. We have what would be a problem of national security involving ambassadors to a nation of super powered individuals, so the leader of the nation decides to pull in... an overweight private investigator with issues regarding supers to deal with it. The story is too fast. From the time the main character gets involved, everything that happens until we reach the end happens in less than twenty-four hours. That may work to keep the main character off balance, but it can have that same effect on the reader. And a few too many characters carrying the idiot ball, including every character in the room during the final confrontation. I'm not sure if the author still intends to come back to this series in the future. It seems like he worked to establish a new starting point for the next one in the final chapter. I think I'd give it one more shot, but the series as a whole is on shaky ground with me.

I enjoy reading about Bob, but I wouldn't want to be him.
