Jason is a young lonely boy who is about to mess up his whole life due to drugs and meaningless sex encounters when he finds himself next to a corpse one morning. Luckily the police detective who stumbles upon him, takes an interest in him. And tries to get the boy back on his feet, because this macho policeman feels attracted to the young man. But there is also a murder to be solved, or two.
The detective story is alright but Brown really wanted to write about the sexual SM relationship of those two men but that remains very cliché and on the surface. The reader hardly gets to know police officer Alex Spider so that the whole story remains rather superficial. What a shame. I wonder whether the next story of that series will be better.
