I read this years ago and really liked it. I decided to read it again and found many additions that make it even better.
Do you have more planned?
Author's Response: I'm always working on something, but the muses make hit-and-run visits and I never seem to get any of the stories finished. I'd be happy to hear what you have in mind.

Hi Shadowjump. Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed reading this. I'll be honest, Sam has some definite Mary-Sue-like qualities, but I liked her and I thought she made a good partner for Jason.
I would have liked to see more interaction with Jason and the rest of the team, particularly a flashback to Jason and Mark's final showdown. A scene where Jason finally tells Sam exactly what his past was like would have been nice, too.
I didn't quite understand the fear that Jason had for his boss and the way he and Sam kept their marriage a secret. I thought this would have made more sense if Jason was younger. It occurred to me that maybe Jason could have been away 5 years instead of 13. His behavior felt more grown up, but didn't necessarily fit a man in his thirties.
Overall, though, you have a good flair for dialogue and the relationship between Jason and Sam was genuine. :) I'll have to explore more of your writing to see how Jason handles those twins when they hit the terrible twos!
