Daniel Weber (“Web” to his friends) was a promising young biology student on the fast track to a prestigious grad program. That was a year and a half ago. Now he’s working a dead-end security job and living in his cousin’s two-flat. Thanks to the mysterious George, he’s got gaps in his memory too big for his pocket notebook to fill.
Jesse Ray Jones is the taxidermist who’s trying to help the Faris Natural Sciences Center secure the MAHPS Grant, a funding that would keep the foundering organization afloat for a few more years. He looks like a skatepunk and talks like a science major, which pushes Web’s every last hot-button.
It’s lust at first sight…but hooking up proves difficult when a supervisor at the Center is found bludgeoned to death in the petroglyph alcove—and Jesse and Web are the primary suspects.
Sleepwalker was a fascinating read that I didn’t want to put down until the very end.
Jordan Castillo Price crafted an awesome novella here with a truly original main character.
Daniel ‘Web’ Weber is a security guard at a failing small town natural sciences center. He used to have a life but thanks to a brain tumor he’s named George he doesn’t do much beside work. One of the reasons is that George leaves him with large time gaps in his memory. He doesn’t know what he does or where he goes when he blanks out. He even forgets the name of his cousin’s wife, who he lives with.
It’s lust at first sight when Web meets Jesse Ray Jones, a taxidermist helping at the center. The sex between these two was freaking hot! JCP writes some truly smoking romantic scenes without a doubt.
Trouble comes when a center supervisor is murdered and both Jesse and Web are suspects. The mystery here was extremely interesting and well thought out. Kudos to JCP for writing a mystery where I actually wondered if the main character had indeed committed the murder.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
