"David Faxon's paperback "Cold Water Crossing" is a strong effort. For the first time someone has successfully told the basic murder story from beginning to end in clear, plain English...his reporting can be crisp and effective...well structured narrative." --www.seacoastnh.com
"In David Faxon's Cold Water Crossing,... the well known story of the Smuttynose murders is turned into a riveting tick-tock account that takes you from the grisly night on the island to the capture of Wagner, through his trial and finally to the hanging."
Barbara Coles- New Hampshire Magazine --New Hampshire Magazine, September, 2009
From the Author
In "Cold Water Crossing" I have attempted to capture the atmosphere and mood of a time when life along the New England coast was in the midst of change. Into this time, a memorable tragedy occurred off the coast of Maine that altered many lives. Come with me, back to that time and relive those places and events.

I think even if you are not from NH, you would still appreciate this book. I thought too that the book was well constructed, and easy to follow.....sometimes books that jump between different characters at the same time can become confusing.
I would highly recommend it.....I wish there were some photos of the grave stones, smuttynose Island etc....that might even make it a little more intriguing.
I'm going to buy a few more copies from friends who I think would appreciat it.
