Cassandra’s life flashes before her eyes when she gets trapped in a subway door. It’s a disappointing life, she never landed the big role and she may be engaged to the wrong man. Rescued by a kind-eyed stranger she gets a second chance to make good on her Broadway dreams, straighten out her love life, and deliver some karmic justice to the city in the guise of a slinky Cat Burglar. So long as she can shake off that pesky Foxman and the bungling Police Detectives on her tail.
Wilfredo’s skateboarding fox costume is a hit on Halloween. But an unexpected tussle with a fleeing thief in a Cat Burglar suit leads to a spectacular wipe out. He has no clue his mishap has been recorded in a soon to be viral video. Nor does he recognize his masked opponent as the green-eyed girl whose number he lost a month ago. Reveling in his every blunder is Captain Pete, the ventriloquist dummy from his childhood, whose snarky comments leave poor Wilfredo clinging to his sanity by his fingernails.
A stagehand and an aspiring actor are drawn into a masked rivalry, never suspecting that hiding behind the mask is a familiar face.
“Heras charms with simple prose and a wry-but-earnest fondness for working-class New York.”
“The Intergalactic interloper is packed with fun and weird ideas and is immensely enjoyable.”
