A tight, clever, fiercely driven slice of crime fiction. This is the second in the ‘Joseph Stark’ series. Damaged and almost broken DC Stark, and his Met Police colleagues in the Murder Investigation Team have a double murder to solve, however events quickly overtake them and they end up in a desperate attempt to stop their world from imploding. Matthew Frank sets Stark centre stage, yet Stark’s friends and colleagues are an essential addition to the storyline, their thoughts and feelings add to the complexity of emotion I felt for Stark. Stark’s combat post-traumatic stress disorder eludes capture, Matthew Frank exposes the effects without sensationalisation. This is crime fiction with a wonderful blast of attitude; violence and fear flourish in different guises, twisting this tale into a mesmerising and thought-provoking read. ~ Liz Robinson

Between the Crosses Synopsis

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 felt 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 this second novel starring Joseph Stark continues to deliver pitch perfect characterization and complex plotting.
