Sebastian Swift has given up both his work as a poet and cocaine in favor of the quiet life of a professor in a small college. He has what seems to be a 'safe' boyfriend--one who asks for no commitments--in Max, the local police chief. Swift seems content with that . . . at least sometimes.

But Swift isn't as free from his addiction as he thought--nor is Max as safe he seems. When Swift entangles himself in a murder mystery for the sake of one of his students, he finds out just how quickly the old cravings can return, and just how much is at stake with Max.

This is an engrossing and, at times, painful read as Swift struggles with his addiction--but the story never spirals into melodrama and never quite gives us a reason to despair. (Though at one point it comes close.) I'll be reading this book over and over.
