Publisher's Summary

Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect’s assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody - he has a life he loves that he won’t give up no matter who is after him. But Jory’s life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw.
While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective. And though Jory may survive the danger, he may not survive a broken heart.

Time is the answer...

I enjoyed the story for the most part. The backstory was a bit confusing. I am not sure if it was because of the main character Jory's ADD or what but I found myself lost on a couple of occasions and I had to go back to pick up the story. Perhaps it's my own ADD kicking in. Additionally, I found it difficult to relate to Detective Kage or even like him for that matter. However, as the end of book 2 drew to a close, I finally began appreciating Sam Kage. The ending was exciting and engaging with a typical cliff I have to get started on Volume two.

Kudos to Morey's characterization of Det Sam Kaje!

An enjoyable series made better by the narrator. Morey's characterization of Sam Kaje is incomparable!

Entertaining story read by a great narrator

I've listened to this a couple of times and also had it in the car with my partner who enjoyed the story.

Good story line with humour and pathos - well recommended!

Enjoyable audiobook of a great story

I have already read this, so I was looking for another way to enjoy the book whilst I'm driving etc. and this did not disappoint. The two main characters personalities came across as completely different and embodied who I felt them to be in the book. I have listened to other books by Paul Morey, and to start with I wasn't sure if the voices would resonate too much with the other book characters for me to separate them but within about 10 minutes, he was Sam and Jory and maintained those personas throughout the book.

Have bought book 2 but only to hope there is a happy ending for this couple. Sam is a bully and over bearing thug who discounts Jory as an adult. Why does the author make Jory a survivor when escaping those that want to kill him but pathetically weak when it comes to his love Sam? Gosh I hope Jory is a bigger person in the next volume.
