The end, when both Tempe and Ryan’s daughters are put in danger, is a series’ lowpoint I’ve been a longtime fan of this series and the show but I must admit, this newest effort was such a wank job.

I wont comment on the book – if you want to know about it read the blurb as any more and I will give the plot reichss and that is for people far more eloquent and creative than I View all 14 comments.
