Just two years ago, the media turned State Police Detective John Spader into a hero.  He'd caught a twisted serial killer terrorizing Massachusetts, and the "Jack of Spades," as the media dubbed Spader, was born.  But when the murderer walked free on a technicality--free to kill again--the public turned on Spader.

Now, a new serial killer is on the loose.  He wears the silly, gap-toothed, grinning mask of Galaxo, Starboy Avenger!--a cartoon alien of unparalleled popularity with children.  With the aid of voice-changing technology in the mask, the killer even speaks in the alien's cheerful, high-pitched, alien vibrato, the same voice that delights millions of cartoon-watching kids every day.  And he does this while doing terrible things to his victims.  With the body count rising and the public's fear growing, it's up to the Jack of Spades to find the man beneath the mask and stop the killing.

From the Author:

This story came about because I woke up in the middle of the night thinking how strange it would be to open my eyes and find someone famous--no, not just famous, but world famous, someone adored by millions!-- in my dark bedroom, standing over me with a knife.  I thought about how bizarre, how creepy that would be...and even creepier, actually, if the person were a kiddie cartoon character.  But because I wasn't going to write a cartoon or comic book, I had to bring the cartoon character to life.  And because I couldn't use a real cartoon character loved by kids around the world, Galaxo, Starboy Avenger! was born.  And I got no sleep that night.  And since I wrote the book, I've been told by a few readers, some of them even friends of mine, that I've cost them sleep, too...in a good way, though.
