Healing MindseBook - 2013
Josh McPhee always wanted to be an agent. To keep from going crazy at the Agency's New Mexico substation, he talks to the imprisoned wolf shifter-or tries to. Their one-sided conversations only prove the shifter is not getting the help he needs. After all, he is a victim too. Wolf shifter Xavier doesn't remember much before his time with the Knights or the time under their control, where he was brainwashed and used to kill innocent shifters. He wants to recover his memories, and yet he fears what he might find. He would escape were it not for the aide whose voice quiets Xavier's implanted urges. Late one night the Knights attack the station to retrieve what's theirs. Overpowered, Josh cannot stop them before they unlock Xavier's cage. But Xavier rushes to Josh's rescue and, sensing his opportunity, escapes, taking Josh with him. When Josh wakes up on the road, they strike a bargain: Josh offers Xavier one month of freedom before he calls in the Agency. Both doubt he can be cured, but something about Josh makes Xavier better. They just have to figure out what before the past catches up to them.
