When returning to China Lake, a desert military base for her fifteen year high school reunion, Evan discovers that a startling number of her classmates have died young in seemingly unrelated ways. As the reunion festivities begin, the body of an organizer is found brutally murdered…and that is just the beginning. Evan suspects the death of her classmates has something to do with their shared past.
This is the fourth book in the Evan Delaney series and I wish I had started at the beginning. Although the whole reunion-murder thing has been done before, Gardiner does it with originality and a host of colourful characters that move the plot along at a break neck speed. Crosscut is definitely an unpredictable page-turner and I’ve been told that the previous books are equally entertaining as well.
