A very interesting story about two guys who leave the mob and now have to hide from it. I would have liked a lot more dialogue, but I’m not sure that would have worked well with these guys. They were more of the strong, silent type. I was glad we got both points of view. It helped explain why it took years for these two to admit their feelings for each other. I enjoyed the suspense aspect since it felt very realistic. They never knew who might be looking for them or who might try to turn them in for a reward.
Three years ago, Carl Ragar turned on the mob. His conscience couldn’t handle the murder of an innocent bystander, and he had to turn his back on his mentor, Petroc “Pete” Barbu, a man he’d admired and lusted after. Pete made no apologies for his job as an enforcer, but he’d never planned to get himself or Carl involved in the murder of a reporter. When Carl turned state’s evidence, Pete couldn’t even pretend to be surprised.
Now Pete’s still on the run, and Carl is unceremoniously dumped out of witness protection. Two men tangled in their own pasts, they will have to face the shifting moral lines in the sand that drove them to make disastrous choices. Once Pete and Carl were partners who trusted each other with their lives-now they’re struggling to save their souls.
