Carter Schunk is a dedicated police officer with a difficult past and a big heart. When he's called to a domestic disturbance, he finds a fatally injured woman and a child, Alex, who is in desperate need of care. Child Services is called, and the last man on earth Carter wants to see walks through the door. Carter had a fling with Donald a year ago and found him as cold as ice since it ended.
Donald (Ice) Ickle has had a hard life he shares with no one, and he's closed his heart to all. It's partly to keep himself from getting hurt and partly the way he deals with a job he's good at because he does what needs to be done without getting emotionally involved. When he meets Carter again, he maintains his usual distance, but Carter gets under his skin, and against his better judgment,Donald lets Carter guilt him into taking Alex when there isn't other foster care available. Carter even offers to help care for the boy.
Donald has a past he doesn't want to discuss with anyone, least of all Carter, who has his own past he'd just as soon keep to himself. But it's Alex's secrets that could either pull them together or rip them apart - secrets the boy isn't able to tell them and yet could be the key to happiness for all of them.

Another great story from Andrew Grey
I read the print versions of books 1 and 2 - now I have the audio as i think the narrator made a difference.
I really got involved in this story. To me these were real men showing respect for each other, I feel is so often missing in other books except in a cursory sort if way. The love and respect shown was beautifully rendered through the unfolding story-line. I found I overlooked some supportive character stereotyping as I followed Jos and Kip on their heart-warming journey.
I felt Randy 'nailed' the adult characters mannerisms. Good pace, good tone and good character differentiation added to the story. Though his voice-over of Issac did 'grate'. An adult imitating a 3 year old child was always going to be a challenge!
To me the Carlisle Cops series is tuning out to be just as good as 'The Range' series. I hope there are many more books to come.
