Reactions and Reviews

...Blair is a new detective who goes by BJ, and he thinks the detectives are spirit bears, and he goes undercover, and he thinks about how wolves aren't typical spirit animals, and he gets hurt and calls for Jimmy, and Jim rescues him.[1]
In the midst of an undercover case, Blair considers his own identity, now that he's working as a cop. Interesting story - definitely needs a "rated M" warning. Thoughtful, introspective, philosophical, metaphysical, profound, but also grey and gritty. This author was nominated in the 2000 Cascade Times Awards in the "best drama author" category.[2]
With a smooth, compelling, almost hypnotic style, Kit takes us into Blair's head during his first undercover case as a detective. Jim is of course nearby, hovering, solid and protective as you would expect. The author skillfully weaves Blair's abstract thoughts into the action, with a result that has both a gritty, matter-of-fact realism and a dreamlike quality. A lovely, suspenseful and poignant piece. (whew, how's that for adjective abuse?) [3]
