Secret Identity, A Conversation with Alex Segura and Laura Lippman

    Anthony Award-winning writer Alex Segura presents a rollicking literary mystery set in the world of comic books. It’s 1975 and the comic book industry is struggling. An assistant at Triumph Comics, Carmen Valdez is given the dream assignment to create a new character, “The Lethal Lynx,” Triumph’s first female hero. When her work is stolen and a colleague is murdered, Carmen must untangle herself from the web of secrets and resentments among the passionate eccentrics who write comics for a living. Alex Segura uses his expertise as a comics creator as well as his love of noir fiction to create a truly one-of-a-kind novel.
