Being a cop is not only a job for Detective Douglas Brody, it is a family tradition. Nevertheless, Brody’s self imposed rules were due for an overhaul when he was forced to work with physical therapist Zack.

Slow Burn is a budding romance story with a murder mystery as background. The characters are believable. Brody works hard to live up to other’s expectations, always repressing his own feelings. His regularly annoyed behavior, as well as his controlled way of thinking, is an example of Brody being out of touch with his inner self.

 Zack is a compassionate man, who is very good at his job. He does not bow down to tyrants as Brody soon discovered. Zack has a common sense quality that helps not only Brody’s personal life, but Brody’s job as well. 

Sam B. Morgan’s Slow Burn is a moving as well as amusing saga. The mystery case is a small portion of the storyline, yet still enjoyable. The perpetrator is a fascinating surprise.
