The Temporary Hero

Why be credible when you can be incredible?

Eight months ago, a mad scientist’s device left Reuben Conway with the superhuman abilities of Ultiman. When a flame-wielding burglar goes on a crime spree in Los Angeles, it’s up to Reuben to track him down. But, when a mysterious organization frames him for the crimes, he finds himself at the center of a scheme to destroy the city. As the terrorist plot storms toward its murderous goal, Reuben discovers that he’s been caught in a trap.

 

One from which no hero can escape.

My blood ran cold and I tuned out the commentator as I watched the video they were looping. The shaky cellphone video showed flames erupting in the Starlines warehouse.

It was me.

“It’s gotta be fake,” Ratna whispered.

The third installment in the popular Conway Report series, The Temporary Hero is a pulse-pounding ride through a noir world of secret identities, mind-boggling superpowers, desperate gambits and shadowy conspiracies that will leave fans of potboilers and superheroes screaming for more.
