This is an irresistable series. Too bad my Kindle version is marred by poor formatting. There are huge patches of monospaced text that interfere so completely with the reading experience, it's like driving down the freeway and getting a flat tire and then getting another on 10 minutes later. I would rather not proofread. I'll come back and give the series another review when the problems are taken care of.

This fourth installment of the PsyCop series is called Secrets and the title says it all: everybody is keeping secrets from everyone. Meanwhile there’s a gruesome case to be solved.
I found the crime story in Secrets to be the most interesting of the series till date, but the reason I read these books is because of the characters and there were some great revelations and developments going on!
I just can't stress how much I love Vic. He feels so real and his inner turmoil just makes my heart ache. Vic now owns a house with superman/superhunk/supercop Jacob, but it’s not easy for Vic to be happy. Especially when his past comes to haunt him...
The secondaries are equally as engaging. We get to know Jacob a bit better and it’s nice to see he isn’t as perfect as Vic imagines him to be. It’s also great to see how much Jacob loves Vic.
Besides Jacob, we get a peek in Zigler's home life and we reunite with Lisa and Carolyn. Lisa’s struggle with her si/no and her determination to help Vic made me forgive her for treating Vic so poorly last book. Also -and very surprisingly- I loved Carolyn! Her bluntness is hilarious.
Another great addition to the PsyCop series. 4,5 stars
