A missing comic book genius. An all-powerful hallucinogenic designer drug.
Max Bowman is haunted by both of them - and he just might lose his mind as a result.
When Max takes on the mission to find the long-lost creator of cult superhero Blue Fire, he ends up getting dosed with a chemical that upends his sanity just when he needs it the most. Now he's got to contend with zombies on the Upper East Side, a cult run by a clueless pawn, a hipster rapist who knows her way around a sword, a secret CIA spook program left over from the Cold War, and powerful old enemies who are out to destroy him - all while trying to keep his mind from crashing and burning for good.
Blue Fire's mantra in the old comic books used to be, "For good to be purged of evil...Blue Fire must endure." But now it's Max Bowman who must endure - and he's as far from a superhero as you can get.

High Jinx and that dam Dog
Yes, it's just out there enough to pique your curiousity! What more can beset Max? It's not like he goes looking for trouble to, uh, ... step in. Trouble looks for him. In an entertaining way.
Dark Sky, Book One in the Misadventures of Max Bowman Series. I had the pleasure of listening several months ago to Dark Sky. The audiobook sticks in my mind favorably too.
George Kuch is an excellent narrator whose voice conjures up the Max Bowman character and others in the book.
Head shaking. Is that a relevant reaction to this question? Laugh my butt off head shaking. Edie the pooch is a handful. The bad guys and gal are worthy of dislike and to motivate rooting for Max to persevere.
AS IN THE FIRST IN THIS SERIES, DARK SKY, THERE IS LOTS OF SALTY LANGUAGE, SEXUAL SITUATIONS AND IN THIS CASE RAPE. IF YOU'RE OFFENDED, BE FOREWARNED!
This was an excellent second effort, with a protagonist that I have enjoyed.
Thank you for the opportunity to listen to and review.
