The beginning of this story is its weakest as we are barely introduced to the main characters and the focus is on Logan trying to get close to Pepper. We have no idea why she’s being sheltered by her brother or the details of her personal story.

It would be okay if this aspect of the story moved at a quicker pace but it took much too long to develop. But, if you can make it through this tedium, the story then shifts into gear at almost breakneck speed and really delivers! As if being undercover isn’t stressful enough, Logan also has to contend with departmental corruption and […]
