The mystery is more dark and somber and the three installments are nicely intertwined. Nick is becoming a more introspective character although his dry humor made me smirk a lot.
Like here:“Yeah, that's why I unbuckled my belt because I thought he could teach me about weights.”
Or here:"Can we negotiate this?” I asked the attorney
“You want to negotiate a blowjob?”
“Not the blowjob itself. I think that’s a fine place to start. You didn’t mention other possibilities.”
I smiled at him.
“After that, we’ll do anything you want. How’s that?”
Glimpses’ of Nick’s ex-boyfriend Daniel contribute to a romance aspect which I was not expecting. I smiled. A while later, I asked, “Did that mean anything? What we did? Or was it just another way of saying good-bye?” He studied me, then said, “I hope it meant something. I hope it meant hello again.”
