Criss Cross - Jordan Castillo Price Hmm. I liked this a little bit more than book number 1, but I'm only continuing with the series because it's supposed to get much better later on. If I hadn't known that, this would have been it. I only now understood that Vic is actually 40 years old. I find it very weird that I didn't pick up on this earlier, and that's just one of the things that's lacking as far as the characters go. His love interest is still not much of a character - a proof of that is that I just finished the book 1 minute ago and I can't remember his name! After 2 books! None of the characters have any substance, and I don't care for any of them.
