"Enemies & Allies"

New from William Morrow: Enemies & Allies by Kevin J. Anderson.

About the book, from the author's website:

In ENEMIES & ALLIES, as Sputnik silently circles the skies above the fabled cities of the United States – Metropolis, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Gotham City – danger lurks in the Earth's darkest corners. Evil genius Lex Luthor, Superman's arch–enemy, is leveraging international tensions to build a military–industrial empire, competing against his primary business rival Wayne Industries, run by Gotham City's enigmatic millionaire Bruce Wayne.

Meanwhile in Metropolis, Daily Planet reporters Clark Kent and Jimmy Olsen are assigned to look into the crash of a supposed flying saucer. While Lois Lane pursues her own dangerous story, Clark is desperate to know if there may be other lost interplanetary visitors on Earth secretly living among us – – like himself.

In a time of fear and mistrust, as America and the USSR race to build bigger nuclear missiles aimed at each other's greatest cities, two extraordinary heroes – polar opposites in their attitude and actions – will come together to stop the bad guys and save the world.

Superman and Batman are polar opposites in their attitude and actions – – Superman is all about rescuing people while Batman gets the bad guys. ENEMIES & ALLIES promises to be a fun and exciting adventure novel and a fresh take on two iconic heroes.

ENEMIES & ALLIES is a unique chronicle of the first meeting between to pop culture icon – never before told in novel form.
