Capes – Matt Drabble

From the Multi Award Winning & Best Selling author of “Gated”, “Asylum” & “Abra-Cadaver” comes an epic sprawling novel, a unique Horror/Thriller/Murder Mystery based within a dark super hero universe.

He fell from the stars and changed the world. Suddenly there existed a super being much like those that only existed on the pages of comic books, but not everyone took to the newcomer nor what he represented and some would seek to destroy what they perceived as a blasphemer.

It has been 30 years since the team disbanded. Jamie-Lyn Anderson had been the young reporter who’d stumbled across the alien’s arrival. She’d formed a close friendship with him as he’d settled into his new surroundings. He’d taken her with him when The Queen’s Guard had been formed and she’d worked the PR for the team under the government’s direction.

Now as an established face of TV news she is about to find her old life colliding with her new. The Queen’s Guard may have long since gone their separate ways but a brutal murder on live TV is about to bring them all back together whether they like it or not.

Scattered around the world they return to face the demons long thought buried as a new threat rises, one that might bury them all if they can’t find the ability to work together one last time.

Secrets and lies are exposed as the truth is ripped free from the grave shining a light on everything thought hidden with a dark conspiracy that may very well tear the entire country apart. A roller coaster of bloody violent action and murder is revealed as the mystery deepens and nothing and no one is quite what they seem.

With great power comes certain death.
