Paul Tsabo is an ex-cop turned insurance investigator. He’s the only person to ever single-handedly take down a ‘mancer, aka a magic user. Losing his foot in the process he has left the police job in order to live a quieter life filing paperwork. But that all comes to a fiery end as his apartment is burned up and his daughter scarred. Paul is out for revenge. He knows the fire was caused by Flex, a drug that is made by ‘mancers that causes normal people to have unusually good luck. But that luck comes with a price, (the universe demands balance), and creates Flux, the bad luck that needs to go with the good.
As Paul discovers his own ‘mancy he teams up with a fellow magic user and enters the dark world of Flux and ‘mancy. Having to keep his new skills a secret while pursuing a ‘mancer hell-bent on destroying the world, Paul has to make several decisions that he knows will not have a good outcome. Part Breaking Bad, part Sandman Slim, Flex is a fantastic gritty urban fantasy.— From Emilo Flores

PAUL TSABO The obsessed bureaucromancer who's turned paperwork into a magical Beast that can rewrite rental agreements, conjure rented cars from nowhere, track down anyone who's ever filled out a form. But when all of his formulaic magic can't save his burned daughter, Paul must enter the dangerous world of Flex dealers to heal her. Except he's never done this before - and the punishment for brewing Flex is army conscription and a total brain-wipe.
