Callie was born with a bad heart. After it ruined her life, she went looking for a miracle: a heart transplant. Now she’s got a brand new heart, but she’s still stuck with a crappy job, crappy boyfriend, and crappy prospects.
Enter Mercer, a mystery man who gets Callie’s heart beating like crazy. As her behavior changes and their flirting deepens, Mercer reveals he’s her heart donor. Only Callie can see, speak to, and touch him—and he’s in love with her, a love she feels just as strongly.
A master thief when he died, Mercer offers to teach Callie his criminal ways and how to turn them against her old job and kick off a nationwide crime spree. Hunted by the FBI and popping heart meds to stay alive, Callie will find out that nothing’s as scary as two people in love with nothing to lose.
This volume collects the first five issues of one of 2016’s most critically acclaimed new series. This 70’s crime comic mixes romance and heists in a story about second chances, Fleetwood Mac, and a bank robbery spree fueled by love and revenge. Priced at only $9.99, it’s an easy hand-sell to fans of titles like Sex Criminals or Fight Club, making it a perfect opportunity to hook new readers prior to the continuation of the monthly series in early 2017.
