A very sweet ending for Lena and Enrico now that they can finally be a family with Marco, thanks to Ed and a miracle or two.
Thank you for writing such an enjoyable story. What a ride you took me on and now sadly it has reached a conclusion. I hope you will write more Ed stories. You write him so well.

Wow what an explosive chapter! Love the fight scene between Ed and Pozzi. You captured the turmoil of emotions the Chief went through as he finds Ed in a bad state - great job!

And the wheels are in motion...great team work. Very nice chapter showing how much Ed and Enrico meant to those willing to give and do anything to get them back safely.

Fab story - I think Ed is the strongest character to be honest so I am more than happy to read loads of Ed! Well written - thanks for sharing.

Okay I'm too tired to attempt to decipher those codes LOL.
This was a powerfully descriptive chapter detailing Ed's physical and emotional struggle to pull himself together and get back on his feet so he can save Enrico. I was cheering him on as he dragged himself closer to the note.

I admire Ed's courage and determination. Poor guy though. I sense from the end of that chapter that he is going to be hurt even more now. It's been some time since I have been reading this story but I still remember it :-)

"he was stubborn to a dangerous degree."
Very nice! I like the observation, especially coming from Ironside.

"Ironside felt his anger rise, but now wasn't the time to admonish his Sergeant... not to mention the fact that in Ed's place he probably would have done exactly the same."
Nice! I like the parallels you draw between the two characters - they're probably my favorite part of the whole story so far.

Hooray for large, comfortable cars! I have one myself.

It's a good thing Ed likes mathematics! You're very clever to have created all these little puzzles and brain-teasers - math has never been my favorite subject, and I admire those who can play well with numbers.

"He was fuming and was about to shout at that fool at headquarters... but didn't. That was what he never wanted to do again: To hurt others because he was hurting. Never, ever."
You're making me like Ed more and more! Though if I were he, I would have tried to get the officer on the line to go find someone who knew him. But that could have taken a long time, and he was having enough trouble standing up by then as it was, so I'll forgive him for that ;-)

"Sir, my child has been abducted. The last thing I care about now is coffee."
I quite liked that! She's got a bit of a sense of humor, even in the face of all this trouble, and she's polite even while this worried.
You have me intrigued so far, though I won't even try to solve the code because I'm too eager to read what happens next :-)

He didn't want to hurt others because he was hurt – never ever. As much as he adored and understood Chief Ironside – he wouldn't end up like him: Bad-tempered, irritable and seemingly never satisfied with those around him.
Wow - I found that really insightful! I like how you've really dug into what Ed would be worrying about now that his fears of paralysis have faded - worries no less heavy, but impossible to share. Nicely done.

"The Chief discerned in Ed's voice at the same time respect, fear and utter conviction. He looked his sergeant in the eye and saw that the man wasn't easy to break. This was still the friend he knew, the friend who, with his guidance, had become a mentally strong and reliable police officer."
Very powerful paragraph you used for this strong chapter depicting Ed's physical and emotional struggles as he commits himself to ensuring the safe return of the child.
I fear the tracker has ceased to function after Ed's fall in the sewer. This created some nail biting suspense and poses another challenge to overcome for poor Ed. My favorite chapter so far.

Loved this chapter. Ironside's hidden concern over Ed was very well done. I liked how Fran was not fooled by his outward demeanor.
