Playing for Keeps tells the story of Keepsie Branson, a bar owner in the shining metropolis of Seventh City: birthplace of super powers. Keepsie and her friends live among egotistical heroes and manipulative villains, and manage to fall directly in the middle as people with powers, but who just aren't strong enough to make a difference. Or that's what they've been told. As the city begins to melt down, it's hard to tell who are the good guys and who are the bad.

Refreshingly original take on the superhero genre!

Playing for Keeps tells the tale of Keepsie Branson, a bar owner with the super power to keep anything she has, and when its hers, NO ONE can take it from her. It may not seem like much of a super power, but in the hands of Mur Lafferty, its written as being absolutely gold.

The superb premise of egotistical heroes, villains that aren't what they seem, and normal people with 'lacklustre' gifts is executed with genius, the characters and plot are deep and develop brilliantly, and Mur's reading will have you hooked. Some of the content is highly cringe-worthy, but its forgiveable when the majority is just so outstanding.

One of the best podcast novels ever.
