I Am the Messenger
Meet Ed Kennedy — underage cabdriver and pathetic cardplayer. He lives in a shack with his coffee-addicted dog, the Doorman, and he’s hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That’s when the first Ace arrives. That’s when Ed becomes the messenger. . . .
Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary), until only one question remains: Who is behind Ed’s mission?
I Am the Messenger is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love.
