Precious Cargo is the Simon and Simon fan fiction novel that answers all the questions left unanswered by the reunion movie, Simon and Simon; In Trouble Again.
What event prompted Rick and A.J. to close the doors of Simon and Simon Investigations? How did Janet come to be the special lady in A.J.’s life once again? Why did Janet and A.J. relocate to Seattle? What did Rick do to earn a living during those years? And what brought Janet and A.J.’s marriage to end?
Precious Cargo is told from three points of view. ‘ The Beginning Of The End’ is Rick’s story regarding the demise of Simon and Simon Investigations. ‘When I Fall In Love, It Will Be Forever’ gives the reader a mother’s view of her youngest son’ s wedding, and the strong love A.J. and Janet share during the early years of their marriage. And in ‘We Can’t Love Like This Anymore’ A.J. tells the reader about his life in Seattle with Janet, and what events ultimately lead the once-happy couple to divorce.
Precious Cargo is filled with angst, hurt/comfort, brotherly love, a sprinkling of humor, and most importantly, emphasizes that the bond between Rick and A.J. can never be fully broken.
