Inheriting his late uncle’s business proves complicated. It’s also way more dangerous than Charlie could ever have imagined. Because his uncle had kept his supervillain status a secret – until now.

Scalzi has done it again with a short, fun, comic novel that makes you think.
Charlie is just a normal bloke, down on his luck, cat to feed, and dreams of running a pub. Until his estranged uncle dies and a surprising inheritance lands in his lap.
I love how the books starts of feeling like it’s one thing and then just totally surprises at every turn with what comes next. I’d deliberately not read much in advance about this book, and am really glad because it was a really enjoyable rollercoaster of a romp.
