Step up and meet characters who are three-dimensional and readers will discover to their delight that none are as they seem on the surface. When Paul Davis' beautiful and rich, society wife is found dead, the list of suspects starts with her ambitious husband and goes from there. Greed, lust, and a plethora of other emotions head the list of reasons for Valerie Stockton Davis' murder.
Despite an obvious case of Hero Worship by the rookie member at the station, even Neil Lloyd isn't safe from Ray's rampage. The two manages to get into a round of fisticuffs that leaves them both bruised and bloody. But may lead to the only friendship Ray has on the force and in the town.
Did the tall, dark and 'handsome' stranger who drifted through town on the night of the murder have anything to do with Valerie's death? Who is the beautiful-enough-to-die-for blonde living in real estate fit for a queen? What about sweet, fresh Amy, the waitress at the Copper Kettle? Is she as innocent as she seems?
And what does a lost cow and a massive-horned bull have to do with the whole thing?
Readers are in for a thriller they won't ever forget in, Dear Crossing, a Ray Schiller Series, by Marjorie Doering. Keep your eyes peeled at Amazon for future Ray Schiller books in the series.
By Irene B. Gardner
The opening chapter tells the story about a drunken washed-up cop who is thrown in the slammer to sober up. It begs the question, "which came first - the reality of washed-up drunken cops or the entertainment of washed-up drunken cops." So many books and movies and tv shows are about cops who are toward the end of their career, have become jaded, and hit the bottle too much to get through life. Their wives have left them and they are lonely. Ugh.
The book got better after this opening because a murder happens. One that is quite gruesome. But then there are a lot of gruesome murders/deaths in this book. Why so many? Well, the end ties almost all of them together, and it makes sense.
The inconsistencies are really with the writing of the main character. At first he's a drunk. Then he doesn't drink that much and has self control. Sometimes he is a pain in the a**, other times he is a brilliant detective. His relationship with his estranged wife is all over the map and doesn't make sense in the end. There's a lot of convenient lies and pointing fingers at possible suspects. It kind of goes on and on.
That being said, the story is fairly enjoyable. The relationship the main character builds with a detective in another city is very interesting and makes me want to read the next book in the series. I liked the two of them together.
I don't like the title. I get it. But I don't like it.
