Great New Thriller
This is a great debut novel from a very promising young author. A group of hostages are being picked off one by one, and the only way to save them is to solve the mystery of the missing Kingfisher—a superhero that used to defend the streets of Chicago, but is presumed to have been dead for over 30 years.

The Reign of the Kingfisher follows vastly different characters that are all struggling with their own ideas of justice, love, and commitment, but who share the similar goal of saving the hostages and making the world a better place in the only ways they know how.

T.J. does a wonderful job weaving these very different characters together, and his writing makes you feel like you are living and breathing the same Chicago streets that they are. You do not need to be a fan of superheroes to appreciate this book, because even though those themes are present, the story itself transcends that genre to present a unique and compelling story about the human condition. I loved this book and can't wait to read the next book by T.J.Martinson
