You're going to be seeing quite a bit of Speranza's fic reccommended here (though probably not much of her TS fic; sorry). I'm a huge fan of her DS fiction, especially her characterization of Ray K and her ability to make Fraser do things that are totally out of character, while keeping the character itself in character.

This story is a perfect case in point. Victoria's been captured in Atlanta and Fraser goes down to ID her. Ray goes along, after he's informed by everyone from Lt. Walsh to Ray Vecchio (calling in from Vegas) that Fraser doesn't act like himself around Victoria. Not that that prepares Ray for Fraser's sudden mid-life crisis. It's impossible to imagine Fraser driving around the south in a cherry-red convertable and sleeping with any warm body in his path. Then you read this story and it's not so hard to see.

Aside from the fantastically bizarre (and yet suprisingly plausible as you read it) plot, you have a great showing from Ray K and one of my favorite Ray Vecchio characterizations ever. I'm a die-hard Fraser/Ray K shipper, but I love the friendship between Fraser and Vecchio and Speranza gets it just perfectly in his fic. A wonderful, satisfying story.
