But it's not all doom and gloom. My skills are improving every day, and Raul - aka the Mad Bombardier - and I have never been happier. That is, until my first solo job is interrupted by a mysterious woman who tells me that Raul has been kidnapped by a ruthless new Villain. The only way to free him is to do a job for Maggot, a man with scary ideas and an even scarier superpower.
I can't go to the cops or a Hero for help. Odds are they wouldn't listen to me anyway. If I fail, Raul will be killed. If I succeed, we'll both be bound to a man who'll stop at nothing to put Panopolis on the path to civil war. It looks like the only way to win is to take out the competition.

Any additional comments?
After listening to the first book, I had to dive right into this one. The story picks up several months after the events in Where there's smoke and Edward is adjusting to life as a villain, life with Raul. Everything is going as well as can be expected until one of the villains Inadvertently freed from Prison when Raul broke Edward out decides he wants to control the villains. And he wants Edward under his thumb. Now, exactly how do you think this demon will achieve that? If you're thinking kidnapping and torturing his lover, you'd be right.
Loved the storyline for the most part and absolutely enjoyed the narration. I really liked how Russo made the bad guy sound as disgusting as his moniker.... Maggot. And here's where we get to what I didn't enjoy so much. This villains "gift" is disgusting and I almost threw up in lunch. So be warned, there are a couple of 10-15 minute sections where you won't want to be eating or just eaten. Gross!
Aside from that, I really enjoyed the story.

Even with the (somewhat) cliffhanger ending...I loved this!
I loved Nick J. Russo's narration, especially his character voices, which are so good in this series (his voice for Raul makes me swoon).
In this installment of the Panapolis series Edward has a tentative grip on his new powers, and he and Raul are getting Edward ready to be a true villain. Told entirely through Edward's POV, the story is fast paced, humorous at times, and totally entertaining.
Edward has a lot to get through this time, dealing with problematic heroes, and terrible villains, including the grossest, most vile villain yet.
Totally entertaining, and totally worth the price of admission, I'm so happy I picked this up as a Whispersync deal for only $4.98.
There were a couple of small audio issues, mainly the sound fading in and out, but it doesn't happen enough to really mar overall listening enjoyment.
Now I have to wait impatiently for book 3, Where There's A Will, to come out on audio, because I honestly cannot imagine this series without Nick J. Russo 's voice in my ears.
