Can an ex-FBI agent crawl out of the pit of despair and find light in a new life?
Griff Rieckert used to be an FBI agent, but that was nearly a year ago. A devastating injury in the line of duty has left him on the long slow road toward recovery, a recovery that will never allow him to return to the life he knew. A chance meeting with a gorgeous young pediatrician, named Sean Avery highlights the dark depression Griff is only just barely fighting. Sean's interest sparks a ray of light into Griff's dreary existence. But life intrudes and suddenly Sean's life is at stake when he is taken hostage in a hospital ER by a deranged and desperate gunman. Griff's previous life expertise is the deciding factor in getting Sean out alive.


Freya’s Book Brief

Griff is ex-FBI, injured in the line of duty. He is depressed, relies on a crutch and has a disabled sticker for his car. Despite many people telling him to move on, he doesn’t know how. Enter Sean, a pediatrician working at the hospital who is a balm to Griff’s soul. When a gunman takes over the hospital ER, things get hairy.

A good portion of the story concentrates on the building relationship between Griff and Sean, the opening sequences of which I found most entertaining. The second half is where the drama is notched up at the hospital. As this is a short story, I’m not going to go into detail of the scenes as I’d end up giving away too many spoilers.

There are a couple of easily missed technical issues. There are also, some questionable practices by the police and hospital that I am sure would be frowned upon if the situation were actually real. Buuuuut, one is in the world of fiction here, and full advantage is taken of that.

What I can say is that this extremely short story is packed with more drama and emotional content than I’ve found in the odd novel.
