I had a few issues with the MC`s in this book.
Nick`s childlike naivety as a good cop in a dirty,corrupted city and his sudden change from straight to gay and accepting it as "his destiny" was hard to believe. Maxwell`s - described as a character with incredible inner strenght -
constant reveling in his guilt and his inner musings of "not beeing worth it" were repetitive and increasingly tiresome.
Other than that In The Shadow Of A Hero is a suspenseful if a bit gloomy story with an unusal GFY/opposites-attract romance.
The cover is spot on!
