Heroes Ever Die
by J. A. Crawford
August 1-31, 2022 Virtual Book Tour
When the actors who play iconic superheroes in big screen blockbusters start dying on set, Ken Allen, failed actor and neophyte detective, answers the call after the blame falls on effects expert Ray Ford, Ken’s oldest friend.
But the deaths are not accidental. Someone is killing heroes. Maybe for love, maybe for money. Maybe for both. Ken Allen finds himself outmatched and outgunned when he learns that Ray Ford’s banished apprentice makes weapons that are anything but props.
Reading this novel was like watching a Batman cartoon or reading a comic. It is a book for comic lovers, especially those who favor superheroes. There is lots of advanced technology and super gadgets, just like super heroes have. There are tons of fight scenes so it's a good book for lovers of action.
The hero is an admirable guy. He's like a super hero with his specially tricked out motorcycle and dart shooting guns and special cameras and more. There are suitable villains, faux super heroes and worthy opponents to our hero.
I have to admit that I did not understand all of the references and dialogue but I am super hero comic book and movie illiterate. This is a novel for readers who are looking for a modern super hero of mythical stature in a battle with super villains.
My rating: 4/5 stars.

Despite what his family thinks, J. A. is not a spy. When he isn’t writing, he travels the country investigating disaster sites. Before that, he taught Criminal Justice, Montessori Kindergarten, and several martial arts. J. A. is an alum of the Pitch Wars program. In his spare time, he avoids carbohydrates and as many punches as possible.
He loves the stories behind the stories and finds everything under the sun entirely too interesting. J. A. splits his time between Michigan and California. He is married to his first and biggest fan, who is not allowed to bring home any more pets.
