Stockholm Syndrome - Sage Marlowe Had the bones of a great story but there was so much time put into getting these characters fucking that characterisation suffered. Dan swung wildly between merely competent and utterly useless, Bryan was unlikable and douchey pretty much the whole way through, and the only character that was interesting was Gabe.The mystery was actually pretty intriguing but poorly paced, particularly towards the end where it just felt as though the author was trying to get all the ends tied up in as few words as possible. The romance, though, felt forced and didn't ring true.
