A cop and a recovering addict – no chance for romance there.

Yet Vince, a street-hardened narcotics officer, is having to reassess his life. Six months ago, he hit rock-bottom. A bullet brought him down, and his beloved partner Jack betrayed him. Badly disabled and in constant pain, Vince is flying a desk these days, and it doesn't suit him at all. His world is looking grim when he meets Rowan Clyde, sole surviving witness to a vicious drugs-related killing.

Rowan doesn't want to talk. He's vulnerable, trying to hold his own life together in the wake of a crippling addiction. Vince should have no time for him, and Rowan certainly shouldn't trust a cop with an agenda to get him onto the witness stand at any cost.

Yet despite their differences, there's an instant pull of attraction between these two damaged men. Their new bond is put to the ultimate test on the tough streets of Newcastle during a dark northern winter, as each turns out to hold the keys to the other's survival – and to his destruction.

I really enjoyed this. There was a lot of angst but it made sense. I'm a sucker for people at rock bottom, particularly addicts. I like real people who've made really poor decisions but who are basically good. I love characters who have had something awful happen to them and they are trying to cope. This has that in spades. The characterization is excellent. I love these two men and I believe in them both. I love their issues and suffering and how they're trying to make it work. The romantic pieces were a little unusual and fit well with the addiction/angst/messed-up-ness of the characters. The pacing is very good, too. There's suspense and intrigue, danger and mayhem, romance and angst, and intense emotion that's played out in actions more than words. Excellent read.
