For Roy Mackey—a recovering addict who makes his living as an unlicensed PI and occasional muscle for hire—tracking down a dead writer's final manuscript should be a walk in the park. Too bad his client is a phony, the dead writer is a thief, and shadowy men are watching his every move. All clues lead to a canceled pulp-adventure comic, The Midnight Jury, and its reclusive author.
Lucy Langenkamp is living a quiet life as an art restorer in Las Vegas; when Roy helps her escape from a crew of armed kidnappers, she's as baffled as he is.Then one of her own characters, a flamethrower-wielding "human exterminator," steps out of the pages of her comic book and into the real world. He's intent on hunting her down, and he isn't alone. The pulp villains spawned from Lucy's childhood imagination are coming to life, searching for their long-lost author. Her most sinister creation, the Illustrated Duke, has a dark plan in motion.
This is a job for Lucy's two-fisted vigilante, the Midnight Jury. But the Jury is missing. To save the day, Lucy and Roy must descend into a noir-drenched nightmare city on a rescue mission. The walls between fiction and reality are shattered, there's wild magic in the air, and it's up to two unlikely heroes to risk it all and save the day.

A Very Pleasant Surprise
Okay, long story short, if you like Craig Schaefer, you’ll like this book. If you’ve never heard of Craig Schaefer and the prospect of tackling a reading challenge running on two dozen interconnected urban fantasy books seems a bit daunting, this might be a good place to dip your toes in and sample the world building and fast-paced, character-driven action that’s made this author a staple for many craving a little gunplay with their ritual evocation. As always, Susannah Jones is stellar.
When I first read the description, my initial reaction was, “Really? Another set of characters when we’re already waiting on so many other sequels?” But this one is refreshingly different, and the nightmare noir alternate world born of an artist’s imagination that forms the centerpiece of this story is a wonderful spectacle I look forward to revisiting: hopefully before too soon.
