The Crossing, the author’s fourth crime novel, again features DI Yates and his team in another complex, absorbing and sinister case.

It begins at a railway crossing, when the unprepossessing crossing-keeper Ruby Grummett is opening the manually-operated gates in the hamlet of Sutterton Dowdyke at the request of a local council tanker driver. But the Peterborough to Skegness train is running late and in foggy weather hits the council tanker, and Ruby’s home - head on.

It’s not the accident itself however that is the focus of the novel, but the events that it sparks off, as the wreckage is checked and the families of those involved contacted. More and more characters join the jigsaw which grows increasingly dark as the deeper and creepier element of the plot begins to emerge.

The author’s style of writing is most readable, and the novel is as much about the characters and their lives as it is about the actual plot. This makes for a more general approach than a straight police procedural but slower although a satisfying reading.
