Jack King could blow up half this city in the blink of an eye.

Lucky for us, he's retired.

"By the end of this book I was fist punching the air and looking for things to fight with my epic Highlander broadsword!" - Kelly (Reading the Paranormal), Morgan Hill, CA
Jack King lives a normal life.  He works at a bookstore, has a burgeoning career in photography, and a talented girlfriend.  Life is good.  Life is normal.  

But Jack is far from normal.

Years ago, he used to put on a mask and fight crime.
"Usually when you read a book of superheroes there is an expectation of unbelievability, and yet Author Rose makes you believe." - Leslie Ann Wright, Author, The Great Northwest
However, when Jack's best friend (a fellow retired crime-fighter) is found murdered, Jack finds himself investigating his friend's killer.  But with enemies new and old (including his ex-girlfriend) bent on stopping him, Jack leaps head-first back into a world he ran away from - a world more complicated and dangerous than he ever knew!

From the Author:

I've been doing the writing-thing for about 15 years. 

Just two years ago, I decided to take matters into my own hands and self-publish my first two novels, The Fire Inside and Better Together.  Since then, I've been learning the steep-learning curve that is indie publishing, working on my next two novels (and some short stories), being a full-time stay-at-home dad to my three boys (all under the age of 4, I might add), and a full-time college student. 

Basically, I sleep when I have no other choice.


"The story has what I enjoy about superhero stories, like the awesome powers, colorful characters, and tongue-in-cheek repartee, but becomes believable." -Michael, Perth Amboy, NJ

"A remarkably enjoyable book written by a man who clearly enjoys comic books." -Rocky, The Geeky Guide to Nearly Everything

"The plot is fun and satisfyingly twisty." -Bart, GoodReads

"Now I have two questions: will Author Rose give his readers another story featuring these sidekicks-turned-heroes?  And how soon that will be?" -DJL, Denim Jacket Librarian
