The Cop and the Sanctuary agent.
Simon Grant was just another Chicago cop on the beat. Unfortunately, he was also a cop on the run. He had been mistakenly marked as a suspect in the murder of his partner, Jaime. Not knowing what to do, but having vague information and a card from a Sanctuary agent named Elliott, Simon did the next best thing when trouble found him. He finds himself at Sanctuary’s Chicago HQ where he meets Cain.
Cain was not a typical Sanctuary agent. He was a part of the administrative team, but had enough experience to hold his own against the bad guys. Cain is also a rich man who does not flaunt his upbringing…much. He wants to live outside the shadow of his wealthy family. So when he was confronted by Simon, he was thrown off his A-game. When it becomes too much, Cain and Simon find themselves on the run from the people who want Simon dead. Thrown together in hiding at a Sanctuary safehouse, it proves that close proximities could be a good thing for some people.
There was enough suspense to keep me invested and I was floored when a web was spun and made me sit up and pay attention. No one was innocent, no matter how much you wanted them to be. You have to read the book to understand. The premise to this set the scene for the next upcoming book entitled Ghost.
I was looking forward to this book. And though it did not disappoint [I am a Sanctuary/R.J. Scott fan] I expected more, more, more. I guess the first seven books spoilt me. Yet, I had to step back and say: it is a new arc to the old series, so I have to relax and move on. I enjoyed the speed chase, Cain’s geeky character who was badassed when need be and so gentle with his toys. And when Simon said: “You’re sacrificing your Ferrari for me?” and Cain answered: “Every time,” you knew it had to be love.
This first book is a good set up to what is to come and I cannot wait for book two in this arc. And yes, I will be reading this book again.
