Summary: So that was it, Ray thought. Bodie was an unstable loner who wanted no-one and that nobody wanted
Ray Doyle is not best pleased by his CI5 partner assignment, but determined to make the best of it – it’s his career after all. And as the years pass, he grows pretty accustomed to Bodie after all. In fact, maybe too accustomed.
Getting to know someone, all of someone, can be more than painful, it can be friendship-breaking, and when a sudden tragedy exposes a whole new side to Bodie's secrets, Ray isn't sure he can cope with what Bodie’s been keeping secret, or with the fact that Bodie did keep it secret, all these years.
Trying to help someone desperately vulnerable, struggling to deal with his feelings, can Ray work out whether this partnership has finally reaching breaking point? And if so, where do they go from here?
