Dane Curse is a Black Cape turned P. I. He gets a call from the Syndicate asking him to investigate a case that could set Gold Coast City on fire. The murder of Pinnacle, White Cape and leader of Team Supreme. This is noir detective story with super heroes and super villains. Dane is caught up in the case and finds quickly that not all the black capes hated Pinnacle and not all the white capes loved him. Everyone has an angle, and a lot of those angles involve Dane being dead.
I really enjoyed the book, there are a few superhero series out there, but this has to one of the best. A large part of that is the way even the toughest are made human in some way. They have vulnerabilities both physical and emotional. The plot has some great twists. I had a hard time putting this book down.
If you like old school noir detectives, you’ll like this book. If you like super heroes and their culture you’ll love it. I highly recommend it.
