The latest zany adventure featuring Brandy Borne and his mother, Vivian, finds them not in their usual setting of small-town Iowa but in New York City, at a comics convention, hoping to sell a valuable comic they found in a storage-locker auction. Instead, they wind up trying to solve the murder of the convention’s director, Tommy. Barbara and Max Allan Collins, writing under a pseudonym, bring their considerable experience of the comics world into the humorous details of the Comic-Con, from crazy costumes to fierce rivalries and the backstories on the comics being displayed. Fans of the series will enjoy the banter between this pair of engaging characters, and the insider look at convention politics makes a fine backdrop. --Amy Alessio
