Magnificent. This is an exciting story with characters and theme that were developed with so much insight. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this.
The questions that were tackled about the morality, futility and nobility of the job were done in such a brilliant way. Everything from the explosive plot to the gut wrenching dialogue to the superbly drawn characters tied together with great impact. I'll be thinking about this one for a long time.
I loved the character of Maggie, so fully alive, a treasure in a story filled with treasures. At first, I thought Maggie was a smart device to move along the plot and give voice to important thematic questions. But she became so much more.
Similarly, for Starsky and Hutch, their relationship unfolded as the story progressed. It felt as if I was able to understand them and their special bond more intimately as each chapter passed, as each moment became more intense. And it certainly got intense with great action scenes and descriptions of personal physical and emotional pain.
Thank you to Connie Faddis for writing this beautiful love story and to those who preserved and presented it here.
