Things you will find in this book:
1) Heroic action coupled with clever
repartee, truly reflecting the spirit and style of the great shows of old time
2) Fun, edge-of-the-seat suspense, with a healthy dollop of
3) Pugilistic Canadians
The Crime Cabal isn't a parody or an attempt to take the mickey out of the pulp-hero genre. Rather, it brings the larger-than-life fiction of the 30's and 40's into the modern era.
It's witty and fun and clever and serious and unashamedly heroic. So if you like
action, adventure, and curvaceous Torontonian ladies that could punch your local
crime boss into next week, then run, don't walk, to the "Add to Shopping Cart"
button now, and get on with the clicks.
- William Merlock
