Mark is a retired spy, happily settled
down with his lover Stephen. He made a promise to Stephen
that he was done leaving him for dangerous missions, but now
heís faced with a choice: one last mission or Stephen. Mark
knows what he wants, however what he wants to do and what he
has to do may be two different things.
In I Spy Something Bloody, Mark
had to make a choice between his profession and his lover.
In I Spy Something Wicked, he has to do it
again. I Spy Something Wicked has suspense of
a different kind. Instead of dangerous missions and deadly
assassins, the suspense comes from Markís aguish over
choosing between one more run or his happily ever after.
Mark is cool, confident, and fearless, but when faced with
losing Stephen, he turns to mush. Itís an interesting
dichotomy. Stephen and Mark are comfortable and sexy and
clearly in love. The stakes are high and the angst is real
in I Spy Something Wicked. Itís exactly what I
expected and wanted for Mark and Stephenís sequel.
