SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T READ POINT OF ORIGIN!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
Kay and Marino are butting heads because of Benton. Marino still fervently believes he’s not actually dead. For once, I actually agree. After all that Kay has been put through, namely losing Mark to a bomb in one of the very early books, I don’t think Cornwell is that heartless to deprive Kay of yet another lover. I’d be genuinely shocked if she is. This book mostly touches on how Kay is dealing with Benton’s loss. It’s a dead horse that continues to be beaten. I get it, really. But I would have rather focused on the actual plotline and not just her aching heart. My heart was aching enough for two, anyways. I love the way that Cornwell presents Kay with problems, such as in this instance where she’s forced by others to do something that puts her job in jeopardy. Every time Kay faces an opponent that’s out to ruin her, I feel for her. Outrage, disgust, anger. You name it. Regardless of what Kay faces, I always want things to work out for her and I hate anyone that causes her grief. And, believe you me, there are several characters that wish her harm. Also… am I the only one that can’t stand Marino? Yeesh.
