Summary

Chesney's efforts to 'Save the Day' and 'Win the Girl' make slow progress. This superhero lark is a bit more complicated than he thought. But even as Chesney is trying to learn the ropes, Boss Greeley has made a deal with the Devil. A deal that is making Greeley stronger by the minute.

Soon he will be untouchable. Meanwhile Reverend Hardacre digs deeper and finds that not everything in reality is quite what it seems… Now Chesney, the one-time actuary-turned superhero must continue the fight.

Critic reviews

"Part mystery, part comic book, part religious treatise, and part crime drama, Hughes manages to work in entertaining twists and character confrontations on a regular basis without overloading his story." (Sacramento & San Francisco Book Review)
"Costume Not Included is a funny, clever book and I’m glad I took a chance on it." (Fantastical Librarian)

It was ok

Really enjoyed the first book, I was excited to see where it went. But I became pretty annoyed with how indecisive and how much of a pushover and Chesney continued to be. I didn't expect him to be Thor, bringing down the thunder, but he lets everyone walk all over him, particularly the reverend, angel etc subplot irritated me. But if you're a fan of the first book, you might love this one, I didn't.

Can't stop listening!

The book is amazing. I couldn't stop listening, so I downloaded it on mobile and listened to it everywhere I went. My wife was displeased that I couldn't hear her.
