Day and Knight: Book Three
For Scorpion agents Day and Knight, their relationship is slow to develop, and trust is hard to build. Then Day’s brother, Stephen, goes missing, and Day finds out more about him than he ever dreamed. Day’s first reaction to Stephen’s disappearance is to try to get to him as fast as possible.
Knight initially holds him back so they can attempt to find out what they’re walking into. But when Knight sees Day’s desperation, he steps in to help and tries to calm the man he’s growing to care about, even though the trail is cold and clues are scarce.
When Day witnesses his brother being shot live on television, he loses the last of his control. Despite the lack of answers, Day is more determined than ever to find out what happened. Stephen was all the family he had left.
Bone-deep fear and adversity threaten to tear Day and Knight apart, but facing unimaginable hardship together might finally cement the bond between them.
Followers of the Day and Knight series from Dirk Greyson know that there are two sides to this series. First, of course, is the relationship that is building (ever so slowly) between Day and Knight. Second is the hijinx that the two manage to get up to in each installment. The latter is resolved at the end of each story. The former, well the former is an ongoing tug-of-war.
In Dawn and Dusk, Day and Knight finally make some progress that hopefully won’t be completely undone by the removal of adrenaline from the mix. More to the point Knight finally makes a few necessary breakthroughs. Fans of slow burn will be happy to know that not everything is perfect at the end. These two still have some distance to go.
As for the mystery in this installment, it was probably my favorite of the three so far. It has some grit and some suspense. You never know where the next twist is going to take you. There aren’t a ton of twists, but there are a few and they are satisfying, if a bit light. This is not an angst-fest. In addition, Greyson plays fast and loose with actual government procedures, but it is done for the sake of the story. It is up to you to decide how much it bothers you, if at all. Personally, I am not reading for a police procedural (at least not reading this series) so I just lost myself in Greyson’s version of reality and enjoyed the ride.
I know Day and Knight are not done with their story. I will be back for round 4, hopefully soon.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
