"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Gio brought a heaviness to the story with his Domestic Violence history which was covered up by the shame he'd felt at having had to report his former boyfriend to their superiors on ethical charges. I wanted to hug him more than anything else; his pride really got in the way of him being given any of the support he so richly deserved. Would it have been easier on him if he'd come forward about the domestic violence? I'm not sure. Would he have saved face with his friends if he'd been honest about the whole truth of his situation? That's something no one can answer because Gio made the decision to hide the truth rather than put it all out on the table.
Jason has his own baggage in the form of a ten-year-old son who only has him to look after him since Jason's wife and Taylor's mother has been deceased over five years. He wants to pretend he can do it all on his own -single parenting, running the police station without any real back-up, taking care of a huge territory with assistance two hours out in any direction- yet Gio makes him face the fact he can't. The man's only human. I could relate a lot to his need for human contact which he'd shunted aside in favor of trying to be both parents to his son whenever he could since he also had an obligation to his job, to their town, to being the lead officer in a territory too big for any one man to ever handle alone.
I found myself getting listless and tired, lazy in the fictional heat of Lisa Henry's Australia, and I really applaud the author for capturing the atmosphere so well. I enjoyed watching Gio and Jason find something for themselves in their relationship; I loved seeing Taylor get comfortable with the idea of someone new in his father's life. I'd call Two Man Station a languid read with heavy topics best broached on a rainy day when one has nothing else going on to distract them from the story. I'd recommend this read to people who enjoy a bit of story with their romance alongside those who enjoy atmosphere more than erotica. I look forward to seeing more of Australia with Lisa Henry in the next installment to the Emergency Services series.
Jason is a widower with a young son. He has heard much about his new recruit to join his two man station. There's a problem, all that he has heard is bad.
When you start a story by Lisa Henry, you can be certain that she will explore the human condition with the skill of a surgeon. All the warts and scars are revealed with loving patience, while the reader absorbs what makes the characters tick. I haven't met a book by this author that I didn't find fascinating, this one is no exception.
Lisa has such an amazing ability to create personable, flawed protagonists in an imperfect world which is so, so tangibly real. And this, THIS, is my Australia.
Great job Lisa, highly, highly, recommended.
