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.
Anarchy Missing is the second installment in author J.A. Huss’ SuperAlpha Series. Continuing the story of the three men who survived their torturous stay at Prodigy School, Anarchy Missing is twice as hot and equally suspenseful as book 1, Anarchy Found.
Case Reider is the quiet romantic juxtaposed to Lincoln Wade’s bad-boy scientist and Thomas Brooke’s controlling titan-of-industry. Just like Molly Masters returned from Lincoln’s past, Louise (Lulu) Lightly returns from Case’s. I loved Lulu! She is strong, passionage and intelligent. She is one tenacious Assistant District Attorney. I adored Case and Lulu’s backstory, and I hunger for more details. Why did Case agree to escort her to her cotillion? Why did Lulu leave in such a hurry and with no further communication to the boy with whom she was obviously infatuated?
While Lincoln can be compared to Batman and Case compared to Ironman, neither Alpha is a typical do-gooder superhero. They are more twisted and edgy. They’re motivated more by revenge than by justice. Even though justice will likely be served, the Alphas will undoubtedly reap more benefits than accolades.
Is the villainous Blue Boar to blame for the current plight in Cathedral City, or is it a force much closer to home? Can Lulu Lightly open her eyes and heart to the truth, or will she continue to narrowly define good and evil? Is her boss, Randy—who eagerly keeps her hopped up on the town’s increasingly popular chain coffee—as corrupt as the judges and police chief, or is he just oblivious to their misdeeds? I highly recommend you let Ms. Huss take you on an action-packed sci-fi adventure filled with sexy science and gadgets and leave you wondering whether the Alphas are #SuperVillians or #SuperHeroes.
