“The Crossing” by Serita Jakes- book review
The favorite teacher is shot on a school bus riding home from a high school football game. The murder goes unsolved for over 10 years, and it is still destroying lives in the small town. Out of love for his wife and in hopes of obtaining the soon to open District Attorney job, Vic reopens the case. But it is not as simple as it seems. So many unanswered questions, a cover up and more people involved than those teens on the bus that night.
The plot is well woven and action packed. I was unsure of the murder’s identity until the very end, well hidden. Mature content: adultery, rape, domestic violence, alcohol abuse. Forgiveness is a central theme, given and received.
