5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping thriller from start to finish!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 February 2020
Just finished reading The Crossing and thought it was excellent. I loved how the characters of DI Blackwell and the perpetrator are developed throughout the book against the backdrop of Weston-super-mare and cannot wait to read more in this series.

Keeps you gripped throughout, interweaving the case and DI Blackwell’s own personal turmoils as she tries to solve the murders.

Definitely a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling new crime series
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 February 2020
A new Matt Brolly novel is always a treat and I read this one in a couple of sittings. The main protagonist, DI Blackwell, is a very interesting and complex character with just the right amount of strength and vulnerability. The first in the series introduces us to the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, and the town comes alive in this gripping serial killer tale. I’ve already pre-ordered book 2!

Gripping storyline with interesting and well described characters and locations. The author has obviously researched or been to the locations in Weston. Great read, I highly recommend the book. 5 Stars!
