In the world of good versus evil, not all heroes wear the white hat...

Getting his 'kicks':

Drafted at the tender age of fifteen to participate in a secretive military training program, Jake Weber is soon thrust into battle in war-torn Vietnam under the codename Kid Rage, fighting alongside future living legend Colonel Liberty, an ultra-patriotic super-soldier fated to be the young warrior’s mentor and crime-fighting partner for the next decade-plus.  

 Flash-forward nearly forty years, as a tabloid news crew travels to a remote, desolate island in the pacific in order to interview the reclusive, long-retired Weber concerning a series of brutal, sadistic killings that have recently rocked the superhero universe, the aged victims all past alumni of an eighties super-group known as ‘Sidekicks Incorporated’ and all former teammates of the man once known as Kid Rage.   
 
 As stories of both past heroics and tragic failures are regaled in painstaking detail, a backdrop of building fear and unease soon emerges as a tangible entity whose lone agenda is the ultimate in final retribution.
 
 Retribution to be extracted for a quarter-century old deed so despicable it serves to blur the fine line separating good from evil; teammate from enemy; hero from villain. 
 
 Long before the sun’s inevitable descent below the Pacific’s vast, swaying horizon, the mystery of exactly who survives the bloody carnage of a tabloid TV dream project gone horribly wrong will indeed be solved, though doubts concerning the validity of good truly triumphing over evil may forever linger…
 
Now available in Kindle Edition and paperback at Amazon.com and in ebook and print format from Passionate Writer Publishing and other on-line retailers.  Also on sale in Nookbook format from Barnes & Noble.com. 

     


Reader Reviews for "Sidekicks Incorporated"


Reviewed by Doug Boren
I’ve known and read Terry Vinson for over ten years. I know his style and what he’s capable of. This, his latest, is perhaps his best so far, although with so many good previous works, it’s hard to tell. The action, once it gets going, is non-stop and a thrill ride that keeps your nerves on edge and head spinning with exhaustion. The dialog is compelling and the characters, especially the main ones, grab a hold of you and won’t let go. The end has what has come to be expected with Terry’s stories, has a surprise twist that wasn’t seen coming, and creates a book you simply can’t put down until finished. I have often told Terry that he should branch out from his first love genre (horror) and do others. This sci-fi excursion proves I was right. Vinson is too good to remain in a single genre. This book is a must for those who like these kinds of stories.
