Who was the unknown man whose weather-beaten body is discovered on Clifton Downs? Did the tragedy that led to a life on the streets also lead to his death?

His police colleagues may dismiss it as a squabble among Bristol’s homeless community, but Detective Sergeant George Cross is not convinced. An outsider himself, Cross’s obsession with logic, detail and patterns does not always endear him to those who have to work alongside him—or his superiors.

But he has the best conviction rate in the Avon & Somerset Constabulary. By far.

As he delves into the dead man’s past, Cross becomes convinced that to catch this killer, he needs to solve a cold case murder from years before.

A murder that someone has spent fifteen years thinking they’ve got away with.

And they have no intention of letting one eccentric, socially-awkward detective, change that now…

“The young woman standing in front of him was smiling.  Cross was sure of this as her mouth was turned up at both corners, which was a definite sign.  He wasn’t sure what it meant though, because he didn’t know her.  With people he knew he would note the upturned mouth, together with what had been said, combine it with the tone in which it had been said and make his inference. Context was everything for Cross. His interpreter.”



  • Well done...

    From the very first page the Cross detective had my attention. The author’s description of the Detective foibles were engrossing and very engaging. A Great Read!

    I loved the main character DS cross. The characters were well developed and quite human. The plot was carefully thought out. I enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely purchase some of the other books in the series.

    This was a very enjoyable, interesting, twister murder mystery book. It was good to read about a successful individual with Asperger in a professional field and how his though process was. This book showed you how to be patient with this individual. Also, it showed how even the good guy can be corrupt and still get caught. would highly recommend you add this to your reading list.

    Different kind of murder mystery. Glad he solved the case. Enjoyed the book to much info at times not to the point. But that’s me.
  • Great main character, A bit wordy

    By adpantano
    A great profile of a person affected with a inherited illness that affects his ability to socially interact. He uses his intellect and personality traits to solve crimes. Good plot but long in reading.

    I really loved DS Cross. Great crime and wonderful character development. If you are a fan of Monk, Bones, or the Good Doctor you will certainly enjoy this detective. Looking forward to the next book.
