Everyone wants justice.
That’s what Assistant DA, Lulu Lightly, tells me. “Cathedral City needs you to set things right,” she says. “To rid this place of corruption, once and for all.”
I’d like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. But mostly her clothes.
“I want you to fight the good fight with me,” she says.
Hell, yeah. I’m always up for a fight.
“We should stand up and be the voice of the people,” she says.
Sure, I hear voices. Sometimes I even listen to them.
“Figure out what’s good for the City and put it first,” she says.
Oh, honey… what’s good for the City is bad for the people. Trust me, I know. I’m Case Reider—insane Alpha, nefarious inventor, and I understand this town better than anyone.
Cathedral City needs me all right. Just not the way you think.
I’m not the justice you’re looking for, Lulu Lightly.
I’m still the same villain you left behind.
Only now… there’s something very, very wrong with me.

Even grown up girls need superheroes
The Superalphas have been on my ” I need it now” list for far too long. The idea of super heroes with full blown, angsty, romanatic, emotional entanglements just pushes all my hot buttons – every single time. Linc and Anarchy Found sent me over the moon and I was on pins and needles to see what happens next. In Anarchy Missing JA Huss has taken us back to Cathedral City and the Superalphas with- Case Reider’s story (*smirk* love the shout out to Huss muse Robert Reider), and makes science sexy in the process. I was so excited when I cracked open this book and I was not disappointed. It’s an amazing ride!!! The corruption and corporate evil is spiraling out of control in Cathedral City – even with the Blue Boar out of the picture. Absence has nothing to do with the heart, and certainly doesn’t engender fondness in the case of the blue boar – unless you count the effect that the developments have on Case’s heart when it comes to Lulu Lightly. Absence just makes the danger grow exponentially in this case.
Case is the least likely of superheroes, and a reluctant one at that. An unabashed romantic. A loyal friend. A TOY MAKER. Pretty much a regular guy – at least as regular as a Superalpha can be. Not mad scientist brilliant like Linc. Not as ruthlessly strategic and calculating as Thomas. But he brings something equally important to the table – emotional intelligence. Like Ronin, he’s the empathetic heart of his team.
Anarchy Missing opens months after the confrontation with the Blue Boar and Case is keeping a secret. He’s changing. And it scares the Hell out of him. The city talks to him in the night as his body smoulders with a heat that he has to set free by cutting himself. Is he losing his mind? Or is it something worse?
Case was cast in the role of Prince Charming to Lulu Lightly’s Cinderella at a long ago cotillion, but this Prince Charming got more than a shoe that long ago night. Lulu disappears, only to appear again in Cathedral City years later as The Superalphas plot is ramping up. A newly hired DA, she quickly becomes a pawn in the game between the powers that be and the Superalphas when her boss encourages her to rekindle her relationship with Case to gather evidence against Molly and the Superalphas. But she doesn’t stay a pawn for long and rekindle is an understatement when Lulu and Case finally reconnect and sparks fly. Red sparks. And what comes after is off the hook.
JA Huss is Mistress of the Twisty and her superpower is showcased in Anarchy Missing. She perfectly blends the superhero suspense and fantasy with a red hot, sexy second chance romance. I love the way Case and Lulu connect as he tries to fight the forces taking over his mind and body. It’s a must read on my list – especially if you’re looking for something engaging and DIFFERENT.
“What?” I ask. “What is it, Randy? Tell me what’s going on.”
He takes one last photo out of the folder and pushes it towards me. “You’re here because of him.”
I almost stop breathing.
The one boy I desperately didn’t want to leave behind when my father moved us out to Wolf Valley seven years ago.
“Yes,” I whisper. “I know him.”
“I know you know him,” Randy says softly. He places a hand on mine just as Lisa appears with another cup of coffee.
I take it from her, muttering some thanks, and then take a long, long sip before coming up for air and letting it out in a sigh.
“He was your escort for the Debutante Ball.”
“How do you know that?” I ask.
“I was there that night.” He smiles sheepishly. “Someone else’s date, obviously. I saw you with him.”
“I haven’t seen him in forever.”
Randy waves a hand in the air. “Doesn’t matter. We’re not after him.”
I feel so relieved.
My relief disappears.
“We know for a fact that Lincoln Wade is a black-hat hacker, Lulu. And Detective Molly Masters has been dating him since she came to town. But the real problem is… Lincoln Wade and Case Reider have been best friends since childhood. Do you remember those two boys who went missing twenty years ago, without a trace, then reappeared several years later with no explanation?”
“Yup,” Randy says. “Those two boys were Case and Lincoln. We think Brooks was involved somehow, but we’re not sure where they intersect. They are close now, at any rate. Lulu,” Randy says, leaning across his desk to take both my hands in his. “We need Case Reider to get to Lincoln Wade and Molly Masters, and we need you to get him for us.”
