Police Officer Frank O'Ryan's knee exploded when struck by a bullet from the kid's gun.  It was a junk gun, something with duct tape wrapped around the handle.  It worked just fine though and Frank was going down. His sergeant squirmed on the pavement, bleeding out from a gunshot to the chest, begging Frank not to let him die.  Frank raised his weapon and fired.  One round.  Center mass of the suspect's chest.  It was just a kid. ***Not-Even-Promoted Detective Vic Ajax is the most hated man in his small suburban police department.  The kind of cop who spends more time with drug dealers and burglars than he does with other cops, probably because he likes the dirtballs better.  The brass keeps Vic down in the basement by himself, until the day Frank O'Ryan returns to work and gets ordered to be his partner. Together, they'll take a journey into the dark heart of The Job.  Superbia is a world filled with grandfatherly pedophiles and drug zombies who hide their stashes in dirty baby diapers.  It's a place where a group of rogue cops rely on an angry six-foot bunny called the Truth Rabbit for really tough interrogations.  In Superbia, doing the right thing can be a fatal career move and the bosses are more dangerous than any crook on the street.  Superbia is the funniest, scariest, most brutal account of what good cops truly experience and most of the world never gets to know.
