Helloo Jay, I see this will be your first review for this story too.
Well, I can safely assume that this is a CIA type organization, and that they are keeping tabs with the Secret Service. Definately an American bent to the tale.
Matt seems to be a mystery here. Kathrinetook quite a risk going into Matt's house. Andshe got rid of evidence of a struggle, should the cops show up. Yeah, I watch too much 'CSI' *grins* Anyway, She's on pins and needles too, after watching the men go into Poole's house and drag him out, kicking and screaming.
It all ties down to what Gabriel is doing for these people, and why does he want out?
Great story! And I'll move on to the next chapter.
Author's Response: From Jay: Thank you, moonstargazer; I'm glad you're enjoying the story.
Well, Jesse, I see you have no reviews for your part of the story, so here you are!
As I stated in the first review, I surmized that Gabriel worked for a secret agency, and apparently, he does.
He feels differently about his friend Derek, for some reason, maybe due to the assignmets they're given.
This does sound like the CIA, or the British equivilent...
You made mention of the girl ferom 'Closet Land', ( I've read info about the movie on IMDB) An American children's author...Strange...Did they think she had a big secret or something??
Anyway, it seems she was tortured into confessing something...Again, I have not seen the movie, so I can only guess.
Anyway, great story Jesse, and I'll go check out some more! ;0)
Author's Response: Now you've done it...I have to dust off my copy of the film and see it again...
Okay, first of all, I have never seen 'Closet Land', the movie this tale is based on, but I do like the story, and second of all, I just found this story, as I was looking for some SS/HG fics.
I find this Gabriel Striker guy to be very complex, um, he does'nt enjoy his work, (again I am clueless as to what company he works for) He's worried about his family, and it sounds like he does work for some secret government agency, similiar to the CIA in the US.
His wife Kathrine, (or was it Kathleen?, my mind anymore!) is concerned for his well being and wonders what type of job it is, that would cause her husband to have nightmres over it.
So far, I am enjoying the story, and I shall read on...;0)
BTW, I'm with your group, Becky knows me from reviewing Obadiah's Angel.
Congrats to Becky and Cyn for this wonderful tale! Sorry I did'nt come across it sooner.
Author's Response: Great to hear from you, paison! We were hoping this story would come across even without seeing the film; I do hope we didn't dissapoint!
