In June 1959, America’s TV superhero took a bullet to the head in an apparent suicide. But was it? And is he really dead? A Hollywood PI comes to grips with his ideals and a host of Mob and Soviet intrigue.
“In SUPERFALL John Hegenberger takes us on an irresistible, hard-boiled walk down memory lane, with P.I. Stan Wade as the perfect tour guide. From George Reeves to Lloyd Bridges to Ross Macdonald, this is a historical tour-de-force.”
–Robert J. Randisi, President of the Private Eye Writers of America
“Faster than a speeding bullet, John Hegenberger’s SUPERFALL sends you zipping through late 1950s Southern California on a supersonic ride. With the help of his kenpo-chopping girlfriend, a sub rosa Superman, the original TV frogman and a hardboiled writer, private eye Stan Wade battles the Reds, the mob and crazed Federal agents in a mid-century modern yarn. It’s clever, evocative and just plain fun.”
–Mark Coggins, award-winning author of the August Riordan series
“SUPERFALL gives us everything we need for a ripping adventure in 1950s Los Angeles: a wary private eye, a frustrated actor, gamblers, mobsters, Commies, and a labyrinth of twists and turns I never saw coming.”
–Martin Turnbull, author of the Garden of Allah novels
