I have loved every book in this series and the characters and in spite of the fact that the characters are gangsters or assassins and there is violence I couldn’t put the books down. I know that this is the end of this series but I truly wish there were more but saying that I can at least say that I have found a new author that will go on my favorite list.
Christopher has decided to spend a long weekend with Simon for his thirteenth birthday, just the two of them in a cabin roughing it and being together something that doesn’t happen often. Snow is staying at home giving his husband and nephew time to bond together but unfortunately things don’t go as planned. On the way to the cabin the vans they are travelling in are attacked and Christopher and Simon are taken hostage. The man holding them seems to know all about Christopher and once again the past rears its ugly head. Atticus Spiros knows Christopher and knows all about his parents, things that even Christopher is unaware of. Atticus wants everything that Christopher has and is willing to send a piece of Simon to Snow every time he doesn’t get what he wants.
Atticus, like so many others underestimates Snow and believes him to just be an ignorant man that he can manipulate, how wrong he is. Very few people are aware of Snow’s photographic memory or his intelligence, if he sees something, hears something or reads something it is forever in his head. Snow has to find a way to free the man he loves with all his heart and the boy that is like a son to him so he has to play a game with Atticus and hope he comes out the winner, it is a game of life and death.
Atticus’ obsession with Christopher starts to make him unravel and even the man who has been at his side through it all, Vincent can’t get through to him. Lives are at stake, the very lives of the two people who hold Snow’s heart in their hands and he has to use everything he can to save them including going undercover to obtain information from one of Atticus’ men who is more monster than man.
I won’t go into detail as to what happens, who lives or who dies, all I can say is that there is explicit sex, betrayals, secrets and violence and I loved, loved, loved each book and each character and although it is not necessary to read the series in order I highly recommend doing so otherwise you will miss out on some amazing stories. I can’t wait for more.
