Blurb: For Scorpion agents Day and Knight, their relationship is slow to develop, and trust is hard to build. Then Day’s brother, Stephen, goes missing, and Day finds out more about him than he ever dreamed. Day’s first reaction to Stephen’s disappearance is to try to get to him as fast as possible.
Knight initially holds him back so they can attempt to find out what they’re walking into. But when Knight sees Day’s desperation, he steps in to help and tries to calm the man he’s growing to care about, even though the trail is cold and clues are scarce.
When Day witnesses his brother being shot live on television, he loses the last of his control. Despite the lack of answers, Day is more determined than ever to find out what happened. Stephen was all the family he had left.
Bone-deep fear and adversity threaten to tear Day and Knight apart, but facing unimaginable hardship together might finally cement the bond between them.
Review: Dayton Ingram’s only family is his brother Stephen. He appreciates Stephen to no end for the love and care he gave to him after their parents’ death. Stephen put his life on hold to raise Day, and they always keep in touch with each other, no matter what.
Now Day is going crazy. He’s lost total communication with Stephen. When Knight sees the state that Day is in, he recalls how it felt not hearing from his wife. When a cryptic letter is discovered, Day’s ready to hop the first flight to Phoenix to find his brother, but Knight stops him. He wants Day to use his investigative skills before jumping to any other conclusions. When he finds Stephen has another identity, Knight calls Dimato, and eventually Day and Knight are headed to Arizona to find Stephen. Day finds himself confused, afraid and grieving, but Knight consoles him. Even though Knight comes across as tough and irritating, he’s determined not to let Day fall apart. Day and Knight still have chemistry, but they struggle with feelings and loss in their own way.
Knight has an ex-Marine buddy, Colt Holsten, who’s more than willing to join Knight and Day on their venture into the desert, to the last spot Stephen was known to be alive. I liked the addition of Colt. He became a support system for both Day and Knight. Dawn and Dusk also reflects a special love of two brothers, friendship, and just maybe a fresh start of a new relationship.
Out of the three books in the Day and Knight series, I absolutely like Dawn and Dusk the best. It’s packed with suspense, intrigue, action, danger, and the ongoing and edgy connection between Day and Knight. Dirk Greyson brings us murder, drugs, human trafficking and a dangerous criminal in this well-plotted thriller. Day and Knight also have to be careful who to trust—Homeland Security or the police. The puzzles and clues that Stephen leaves are so creative it keeps you moving to find the next one. Stephen becomes an even more solid character as we get to learn more about him.
