This may sound a bit cheesy but this book gets “deep” into your soul. Erin is another master of the written word and a real joy to read. I have to say this book was really hard to write a review for, when I get so emotionally involved in a book the way I was when reading Burns Too Deep, I have a hard time translating that to word. I just want to be sure that I do justice by the book.
So here it goes….2 men meet on a lonesome stretch of road. One works for law enforcement and the other appears to be living on the fringe of the law. Both men seemed damaged and they both work at hiding part of themselves from the other, so their relationship is sort of a dance, asking questions that don’t poke too deep, giving answers that may or may not be skirting on truth. This open dialog combined with the inner dialog really gave me a real sense of the characters. I’m not a fan of inner dialog, in fact I really hate (hate may be to strong of word) it when reading, BUT this is different. I actually enjoyed hearing the thoughts of the character, in this book it really worked and believe it or not it was necessary for the illusion of each of the characters to be kept intact until the moment when some of those walls could come down.
Mystery is a big part of this book and Erin really keeps you on your toes as she uses mystery to surround her characters and also the mystery of the action in the book. Erin has blended together a truly remarkable story and before you think I may have forgotten, the sexual bits are stimulating.
Highly recommended and well deserving of a 5 star from me.
Can two men stop running long enough to find each other?
The story of an Irish detective and a mysterious Scot. Two men meet on a stretch of highway between nowhere and Dundee, Scotland. What secret does each man hold? And what will happen if those truths are ever revealed? Both men have much to lose. And something crucial to gain, if only they can stop running.
If I had spare time, I’d spend it in a weed-tangled yard playing with my curmudgeonly cats. But nay, I spend most of the time in front of an iMac keyboard writing, writing, writing. Novels, short stories, blog articles, FB posts, and more.
