Ash Bowman is lost. Two years ago, he and his cop partner, Evelyn, walked in on a murder in progress that left her dead and him maimed. He left the force and became a private investigator, but Evelyn’s ghost still haunts him when he prowls the dark corridors of the Core of the space station Fraxin Yari. Ash is making a map. If there’s a map, then he won’t be so lost…
Journalist Gabe Whitfield is on a mission to learn the truth behind that same murder. He doesn’t expect to stay on Frax after he finishes the job. But meeting Ash Bowman changes his plans. He came to the station a man without ties. He isn’t going to leave the same way.
Despite initially mistrusting him, Ash can’t resist his attraction to the fiery Gabe. Gabe responds, though knows he shouldn’t, when Ash is one of the subjects of his investigation. But they come to trust each other and join forces to find the answers Ash had almost forgotten he was still seeking. If they are to have any chance of happiness, Gabe must help Ash lay the ghosts calling him back again and again to the deep darkness of the Core.

Two years ago, Ash Bowman lost so much when he walked in on a murder that left his cop partner, Evelyn, dead and him maimed. He left the police department and started his own detective agency which suffers a bit from his obsession of mapping the Core of Space Station Fraxin Yari. He is not alone in his mapping activities as the ghost of Evelyn often accompanies him. Journalist Gabe Whitfield comes to Frax at the request of his mentor. He is to investigate and discover the truth of the murders and is sure they tie in with something much more sinister. He first stop is Ash’s detective agency. Ash is among the suspects in the case and Gabe finds his objectivity in danger when he realizes that he wants Ash for his own. For a man with no family ties, he realizes he wants one now. They join forces and Ash is forced to face his past if he is to have a present they both want. What a web Ash and Gabe were unraveling! It went from the highest to the lowest levels of Frax. No one wanted that web unraveled except Ash and Gabe. They knew it would be a battle that they may not survive but neither one was willing to let it go. You could not help but admire these two. Ash was still suffering from that night two years ago. He had never healed fully. Gabe was free of any personal obligations, but knew he could not leave Ash. Exciting, fast-paced and with enough heat to help with global warming, Mapping the Shadows was an incredible read that would appeal to MM romance lovers a well as ScI-fi lovers. With the intricate plot and two incredible heroes, once you start, you will not want to put this one down.
