Intense, poignant sequel to I Spy Something Bloody,
This review is from: I Spy Something Wicked (Kindle Edition)
This book is the perfect sequel to I Spy Something Bloody and, more than just a sequel, is the perfect complement to the first book. It focuses on the internal struggles in both characters, and especially Mark, in dealing with profound personal dilemmas.
The characters have grown, have learned to accept each other, but especially on Mark's side there is still some reluctance to `come clean', some lingering difficulty in overcoming his insecurities and articulate those fears and frustrations that threaten to destroy the precarious balance and mutual trust achieved with Stephen at the end of the previous book.
This second book in the I Spy series was even more satisfying for me than the first one; it was the perfect exploration of these characters' humanity and their effort to make their relationship work in an imperfect world.
