When Tim's book research of an old, unsolved murder case triggers events that have him a little spooked, he turns to his neighbor, Jack, a detective who slighted Tim after a few dates. I enjoyed the slow reveal of what happened in Tim's past and the ongoing physical, emotional and social effects.
So many moments to love: Jack must have had the day off because he was swimming in the deserted pool as I wearily passed the courtyard on the way to my apartment. I deliberately ignored the sight of his lean brown body cutting through the aqua water, glistening powerful arms dipping slow and steady in perfect rhythm with the strong kick of his long, tanned legs.
I was going to have to work on my ignoring technique.
