I really liked the overall story line but was confused with the characters. I would have enjoyed seeing them developed a little more. I would have liked to maybe know a little more about Farris and Daniel.

The intense physical need between Ferris and Daniel was nice to see. Here you have two very tough cops, both having lost their partners/lovers; yet trying to get past that so that they can love once again.

Michael Mandrake pens complex characters already comfortable with their sexuality. Thorough these, he builds worlds not centered on erotica but rather the mainstream plots we might encounter in everyday life through personal experiences or the media.
