In Manhattan of 1948, a famous former striptease artist named Maggie Starr runs her late husband's newspaper syndicate, distributing the superhero comic Wonder Guy. But when the cartoon's publisher winds up dead, Maggie hunts for the killer among a cast of cartoonists, wives and mistresses, and minions of a different sort of syndicate - a crew of suspects with motives that are far from super-heroic. Hailed by Mickey Spillane as "a terrific writer," and by Publishers Weekly as "the master of true-crime fiction," author Max Allan Collins is the creator of the bestselling graphic novel Road to Perdition. Artist Terry Beatty is the co-creator with Max Allan Collins of the long-running private-eye series, Ms. Tree. Their other collaborations include Mike Mist, Mickey Spillane's Mike Danger, and Johnny Dynamite. --Provided by publisher.

This novel should have been a comic book. The characters' clothes are described in exquisite detail, but their legal issues with contracts are a blur.
