With Malcolm on forced bed rest and off duty, Detective Seong-Jae Yoon faces his first solo case since joining the BPD–and it’s one that will challenge his morals, his sense of duty, and his insistence on adhering to the letter of the law, especially when his actions in the Bishop case leave him questioning his own integrity. When the supposedly accidental death of a husband and father points to foul play in the victim’s family, how close will Seong-Jae look to determine if the ends justify the means…and will he be able to live with the choices he makes?
Especially when his mind is as far from the case as possible, and lingering on Malcolm Khalaji, Malcolm’s ex-wife, and Seong-Jae’s own conflicted feelings?
Seong Jae. This is the book where we get to know him a lot better. And my heart is breaking!!! We get to a little more about his past and I’m left with even more questions. It hurts that he thinks he doesn’t deserve love and ignoring his feelings will make them go away.
This the first book where Seong Jae is alone on a case and while I hate that they aren’t together, it was important to show them apart.
I also felt sad for Malcolm. His longing is heart wrenching. He yearns for Seong Jae.
Why, when he thought of himself in ten years, his home full of life and love and laughter and warmth and togetherness… Did he picture eyes as black as night, glittering with silent amusement?
We also meet Gabrielle, Mal’s ex wife in this episode. I didn’t like the direction it went even if it really wasn’t a surprise. For fuck’s sake Malcolm, get your head out of your arse!
Oh and that last chapter? What a revelation! We finally know more about that mystery guy!
