    One day -- maybe because there’d been that case with the kid last week, or because Ray picked up Fraser from his pro-Mountie propaganda visit at the school that day -- Ray's on their porch swing, beer in hand, and he starts telling Fraser about how he tried to get Stella to have kids.

    Summary

    She didn’t tell him. God knows he’s an observant man, though — has to be in his line of work. And as much as he left his shirts and shoes scattered all over the apartment, he knew when something was out of place.

    Summary

    It’s been over a year, but Ray Vecchio is still haunted by his time as Armando Langoustini. Nothing about his former life fits anymore, least of all Fraser, now back in town after his failed relationship with Kowalski. Now Ray has been offered a new undercover assignment that threatens to deepen his alienation from all he holds dear.

    Can Vecchio pick up the pieces of his life when so many parts still seem to be missing?

    Summary

    this was originally intended to be a Five Things story, about Stella and Ray. I only got through four things, though, and then sort of ran out of steam. The fifth was going to be about Fraser and Ray, and Stella seeing them together, and it was supposed to tie up in a neat little bow all the things that Stella had spent the last four sections not telling herself. But I could never really get a handle on it, and so it languished, in handwritten notes, at the bottom of a junk drawer, until I suddenly got the urge to do something with it this morning.

    (this morning = 2006, fyi)
