Between the Crosses (JS 2) by Matthew Frank



ISBN: 9781405913836 Category: Tags: ,


Between the Crosses is another sophisticated and brilliantly crafted crime novel featuring Afghan army veteran and Detective Constable Joseph Stark. First book If I Should Die was the WINNER of the 2014-2015 Waverton Good Read Award. Previous winners include Mark Haddon Marina Lewycka Tom Rob Smith and Rachel Joyce. *** No longer a trainee but a freshly-minted Detective Constable Joseph Stark finds himself working a double homicide. Thomas and Mary Chase were shot dead in their London home and first impressions are that this is a burglary-gone-bad. But Stark is unconvinced. Burglary-murders are usually a tragic case of unfortunate timing but this feels like something else entirely. And when evidence arises to link this murder to a twenty year old cold case the hunt is well and truly on. Following If I Should Die Joseph Stark’s second investigation is a clever action-packed and entertaining mystery. Praise for Matthew Frank: ‘Stark is such a terrific hero’ Sarah Hilary ‘A gripping murder story . . . Frank brilliantly maintains a balance between the demands of a complex plot and his character’s difficulty in returning to civilian life . . . an accomplished first novel’ Sunday Times on If I Should Die ‘Well researched and totally convincing this is the first of several Stark books. Great news if they’re as good as this’ Sunday Mirror on If I Should Die
