Special Agent John Flynn is everything Jerry Parker is not: dangerously handsome, coolly charismatic, and respected by his peers. Special Agent Parker is dedicated and meticulous, but his abrasive personality has given him a reputation for being difficult. When new information on a cold case appears, Parker is assigned to work with Flynn, and the sparks fly as their investigative styles clash. Contact with a strange artifact changes everything when it bestows unusual and unpredictable powers on Flynn… and the two men must learn to trust each other before a killer strikes again.

I really enjoyed this read. It is a murder mystery with a lot of suspense and a bit of paranormal mixed in. Then you add in two hot FBI agents and what more could you ask for in a book.
Jerry in my opinion is a loner. He does what he is supposed to at his job and hopes for more but at the same time I think that he holds himself back in fear that it will not happen because for one he is gay and two he has a photographic memory and that makes him the awkward one at work. Everyone wants his expertise but at the same time he feels like he does not really belong among all of them.
When he catches a cold case with another FBI agent named Flynn to say things do not get off to a great start is like saying Fire is not hot. They are total opposites. Where Jerry is a loner that takes things conservatively, Flynn is adventurous to the point of almost being dangerous. People are attracted to Flynn upon meeting him whereas Jerry does not know how to act in a situation like that.
So when Flynn ends up staying with Jerry at Jerry’s place it continues to be awkward between them until the two are on their way to meet up with a witness in their case and something very strange happens to Flynn when he touches an artifact at the museum they are meeting their witness at. Something happened when he touched it and has left Flynn with an unwanting power he never possessed before. Now Flynn is capable of hearing people’s thoughts and it is just about to drive him insane.
This is what actually leads Flynn and Jerry to start to become close. Jerry is there for Flynn and will not let him hide away from what is happening to him. Instead Jerry is determined to help Flynn get a handle on his new found power.
This new found power in Jerry’s opinion is a good thing because it can help Flynn n to be able to read what people are hiding when they interview them. Flynn will be able to get information that they may normally never be able to get and this may just come in handy with solving their cold case.
It is not as easy to get a handle on things as Flynn hoped it would be and if he does not learn how to control his new found power quickly, it may end up being too late seeing as how the killer now has his sights and hands on Jerry.
Can Flynn get to Jerry in time? Is what Flynn is starting to Herry a real reaction or is it because of his reaction to how Herry feels? Will they even get to find out or will Flynn be too late at getting Jerry Back?
This was a really interesting read. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I look extremely forward to the next books in this series so I can find out what is next to come where Flynn and Jerry are concerned. If you are looking for a good read with a lot of mystery and suspense in it, this book is for you.
