The Apparition

“A Fun New Hero.”

Mike Johnson, the original Apparition got careless and in old age was gunned down. His granddaughter, Alicia, was helping him walk when mobsters gunned him down and shattered her spine with bullets, and now she must live in a wheelchair. In the meantime, billionaire Bryan Sloane killed David Stryker’s son in a fistfight, and the mob boss wants him dead. With the strange return of The Apparition, and new attacks on Stryker’s minions, the police suspect Sloane may be the new vigilante.

Okay, this short novelette had a lot happening, but not enough time to really build the characters. Plot twists, along with character twists, will keep the reader guessing just who The Apparition really is – until the final pages, of course. You won’t go away disappointed, just wanting more stories, and longer ones. Highly recommended for lovers of pulpy fiction with an over-the-top crime fighter.

Tom Johnson
