Long Time Gone
Dec 9, 2013 - 8:39:13 PM
Prophet has always worked by himself.
In his line of work, he can’t afford to have friends or lovers so
imagine his surprise when Tom manages to fill both of his needs. When Tom leaves, Prophet moves on but not
without checking up on Tom’s aunt, Della.
When he finds out that she is in New Orleans and intends to ride out an
upcoming hurricaine, he stays with her because only a fool would leave her
behind and he is no one’s fool. When he
sees a looter sniffing around her home he quickly investigates and is startled
to find himself face to face with Tom and all his emotions are quickly met head
on. As they grapple with their feelings,
old wounds are reopened and mysterious things start happening. Soon Tom is entangled with the town and their
prejudices and finds himself accused of murder.
As Prophet and Tom try to clear his name, they have to look into his
past and figure out who is friend and foe.
If they thought being together was difficult then staying alive just got
LONG TIME GONE is the long awaited sequel to CATCH A GHOST. Prophet is still rescuing people but Tom has
changed him. I think he doesn’t want to
be alone but is scared to let someone in.
Tom wants Prophet but has a tangled and ugly past. It doesn’t help that all of it is dredged up
when he comes home and faces it head on when he is accused of murder. It is only with Prophet’s help that he is
able to move beyond the past to look to the future. The secondary characters are important
because they really bring insight to Tom’s past but also a little more into how
Prophet ticks. I am also curious about
the next offshoot series of the HELL AND HIGH WATERS books just to see how
Cillian and Mal’s story will play out.
Nevertheless, I do love that Prophet and Tom have never been an easy
couple to read and that they keep each other on their toes. If they were simple, it would be boring. I wonder what is next for this dynamic duo…
