Ex-delinquent, terrible little sister, great drinking companion, private eye. Depends on who you ask, but one thing's for sure—Jacqueline St. James has been on her own since her parents vanished without a trace in her childhood. A decade later, a new clue brings her to the town of Superstition, Arizona. Perched on the edge of the Mogollon Rim, Superstition features one dive bar, an underfunded library, four police officers— and the highest number of open missing persons cases in the country.

When the older sister of a missing town troublemaker asks for Jack's help, she takes the case. Jack goes looking for answers to that mystery as well as her own, only to discover that every town has its secrets— and the ones that Superstition hides bridge old family history with the edge of a world far outside the one she knows.  

Superstition is a southwestern gothic mystery audio drama about a private eye, a bartender, a cop, a missing girl, an old mystery and one very spooky town in Arizona. 

 

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

“Kira Apple lends humor, sensitivity, and fire to the character of Jack St. James. Great writing and the perfect amount of creepiness, but not enough that you can’t listen to it alone at night. I highly recommend it!”
