Someone's killing fans, and all the suspects are in costume.

About the Book

Jacob just wanted to have a good time with his friend Samantha and fellow geeks at the fan convention. But when dead bodies start turning up, Jacob has to start a little early on his hoped-for detective career. After all, the police are out of their depth in a world where nearly everyone wears a costume or uses an alias.

But Jacob has a secret of his own, and it looks like someone is bent on revealing him to the entire con. If Jacob’s history comes out, his police career will end before it begins, even if he can find the killer. And if he can’t, more fans will die.

For the Geeks, By the Geeks

This fun murder mystery is full of nerdy humor, with references to everything from hobbit genealogy to the Marvel cinematic universe, but it’s certainly not exclusionary to other readers. Jacob and Samantha’s race to discover the killer is set against a backdrop of con activity and complications. Written by a veteran con attendee, organizer, and competitive cosplayer, Con Job is both a glimpse into the inner workings of a fan convention and a fast-paced pursuit of a vicious murderer.
