Publisher's Summary

The public can't know they exist. It could start a panic. The average citizen is perfectly fine with superheroes saving the day or causing mayhem in movies and comic books. But if those suprahumans actually walked among us, what would happen then?

In a crumbling post-war city of the future, private eye Charlie Madison stands in the gap. The last of his kind, a champion of lost causes, he confronts corrupt cops, violent bratva and yakuza, doing whatever he can for the average citizen in need of help. A war veteran with plenty of hardship in his past, he’s not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the powers that be, whether they’re in the criminal underworld or the federal government.

Madison has encountered more than his share of unusual suspects over the years. But this time he's up against something he’s never seen before, on or off the battlefield: people with unnatural abilities. Suprahumans. Gifted ones. Their powers are too incredible to believe, too dangerous in this unstable world. Their existence is a secret guarded by government agents who mindwipe anyone encountering them.

For Charlie Madison, the Suprahuman Secret emerges when a little girl goes missing and no ransom demand is made. He takes the case, but time isn't on his side. After 48 hours in this town, it's unlikely an abducted child will be found in one piece. As the mystery unfolds, Madison uncovers a bizarre truth about the girl that seems impossible. But it could explain why she was kidnapped - and why she might still be alive.

Old Style Future

Great detective story. In the old style with futuristic details. You can imagine the black & white movie with Charlie staking out Ivan. Can’t wait for the rest of the story.

Unique and Thrilling, plenty of action

Our protagonist has a mysterious past which is never fully explained in this first book, but the story has no cliff-hangers, I just look forward to finding out more in subsequent issues. Told in a series format, there is some repetition covering previous episodes/chapters, but it's all very engaging, and well worth a listen. Highly recommended...

Noir story with russian/japanese mafia & mutants

This book is a collection of 4 stories: "Girl of Great Price", "Immaterial Evidence", "Yakuza Territory" and "Chimera Effect".
They can be read as individuals or far in between, as there are plenty of fast catch-up resumes from the previous stories to put us up to speed. Even so, those are spoilers, so I do recommend to read in order, if you do get the stories separated.
Now the story: this is what i imagine a noir story to sound. And I mean sound because the narrator did a fantastic job. His voice is just perfect for the part and it gives 75% of the ambience of the story. And when he shifts to the Irish voice, man, it's just great!
Anyway, in these series we get a noir detective story but with a mix with russian and japanese mafia, and a mutant problem, all in a world a bit like ours but not really (like the internet is called "link"). I loved all the characters and the witty dialogues.
This is not the last adventure of our "hero" detective, though, and I'm looking forward to know what the future will bring for all the characters (female government agent included, eh eh).

PI vs Supernatural Humans

The Suprahuman Secret
By: Milo James Fowler
Narrated by: Robert Rossmann
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. I really enjoyed this futuristic fantasy/sci-fi novel. The world building is fabulous and the characters are well developed. Amazing characters that are so unique! Very unexpected plot and twists! I wondered how he was going to get out of several situations and it always amazed me how it went down. Lots of action, suspense, and fun fantasy!
Very good narration! Good job!

Raymond Chandler wannabe..

...and not even close. A straining attempt for noir that couldn't even manage grey. managed to get an hour into it and then bailed like a passenger from a burning plane.. anything has to be better than this.. story awful and worsened by the narrator . avoid at all costs.
