An in-depth look at the men and women who call themselves "Real Life Super Heroes."

Dressed like heroes from comic books and action movies, Real Life Super Heroes are out there. They dress up at night, fight crime, save people, and some of them even have secret identities. Are they ordinary, mild-mannered citizens, or are they larger-than-life characters, determined to fight crime, risking life and limb to defend victims of violence and injustice? And why do some choose to reveal their true identities, while others prefer to remain anonymous?

Guided by a reporter's instincts and a thrill-seeking nature, journalist Nadia Fezzani sets out in search of the secret lives of these men and women, who put themselves in harm's way to protect their fellow human beings. Through interviews and patrols with these heroes, she discovers what lies behind their activities. After facing gunmen and other dangers on patrol, Fezzani has crafted a psychologically fascinating look at Real Life Super Heroes and their world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Far from being merely an expose on a few rogue crime-fighters, Ms. Fezzani's book, Real Life Super Heroes, delves into the inner workings of what makes her subjects tick. In essence, her piece isn't just about a few brave vigilantes, it's about the vanishing American way ... Underneath the flashy names and spandex, there is something that pierces to the heart of all of us: that justice - no matter how it is served - is undeniably American. * Clarissa Cole, California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation *
The author has an obvious admiration for the heroes, yet still lets their stories speak for themselves. Ultimately what emerges is a tapestry of varied humanity, imperfect but seeking to improve - to leave this world we share a little better than they found it. * The Outspoken Yam *
Doesn't shy away from the controversial elements of being a real life super hero. * Super Hero Novels *
