Publisher's Summary

One man wants revenge...

One man wants to even the score...

Only one will succeed ...

"Celebrity Cop" Gabe Quinn has quit the LAPD and is chasing his demons pro bono - determined to catch or kill the two serial killers responsible for ruining his life.

But when a mutilated body is washed up on a picturesque Florida beach it marks the beginning of the end for Gabe and his sanity. Nothing is quite what it seems and never will be again. What follows is an explosive game of cat and mouse and a death race to save a woman's life from the hands of a madman. But this is no ordinary kidnapper. This is Gabe's nemesis - the murderer of his wife, the monster responsible for killing Hope: The Maestro. And he has returned with an old score to settle. One that will force Gabe to cross every line he has ever made, begging the question...

"How far would you go to protect your children?"

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The events in this book follow on from those in Killing Hope, the first in the Gabe Quinn Thrillers series. Although Crossing Lines can be heard as a standalone, to get the most out of the ongoing back story, I recommend trying Killing Hope first before enjoying this book, so that events have a fuller meaning and the sub-plots make more sense, followed by the third book Taking Liberty to round things off.

    Story
    "Absolutely Amazing Super Book!!!!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This book picks up where Killing Hope leaves off. Celebrity Detective Gabe Quinn is still looking for the monster who murdered his wife. His tactics are not always on the right side of the law. Of course there are also other shady but colorful characters from Quinn's past who would like to do him harm and threaten to derail his search. I can't spoil this for anyone, you just have to get this.


    What about David Doersch’s performance did you like?

    I personally thought David Doersch did a super job with both books. I think I will always see Gabe Quinn when I hear his voice. My hope is that Keith Houghton doesn't change narrators.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes there was but I don't know why Audible even asks this question. I can't answer without giving away the ending...


    Any additional comments?

    This book contains so many high tension mystery/drama/thriller dialogues and settings. I could not stop listening. The protagonist has had so much heartache but is determined to find his wife's killer that when he does the identity will knock your socks off. The person he suspects is not him but his actions will come back to haunt him. He rescues a woman left for dead as well and the scene is again shocking but the epilogue,WOW - what a cliffhanger for the next book in the series. I can't wait! I Highly Recommend this book. If you're reading my review do yourself a favor, don't keep thinking about it, just get it, you won't be sorry.

    Story
    "I think Lorraine nailed it&Polly was mostly right"

    Thank you for the reviews! I liked the character - But there is something big missing overall from the story-line. I think he was going for shock factor & A lot of red herrings. Unfortunately there were too many unlikely scenarios... I know - I know - I am expecting too much. It was like eating spam as apposed to ham.. You might like it - You might not. But it's not ham. It's just processed meat jammed together. That is how I feel about this book.

    I didn't like the self deprecating way the character acted and I really hate when there is non stop self dialog with characters in books. It's like they are trying to extend the wording to make it a full book... He also repeated himself a lot through the book - While he was talking to himself...

    Still looking! J

    "Awesome"

    Hands down the best book I have heard in a long time. The turns and twists were amazing. I was at the edge of my seat wondering where to next. I never saw the end coming.

    An avid reader, demanding of the story, characters and narrator. Mysteries and historical fiction are my favorites.

    "Better Story, Narrator Bombed"

    If you read my review of the 1st Gabe Quinn book, you will see that I loved the narrator (same gent David Doersch) in book 1. However, in Book 2, he simply couldn't get the British accent, and kept sliding from high-class Brit to ordinary British bloke to Scottish and even to Irish accents. Irritating and distracting.

    The story in book 2 is much better. Apparently Mr. Houghton likes to SHOCK you at the end, but at least this time the surprise was someone we knew something about, had heard of, etc.

    My motivation for continuing with this series is the character. Gabe Quinn is appealing and interesting.

    "Psycho killer team! More is better? so-so"

    This is the kind of story where they just increase the amount of psycho killers to keep this revolving thriller going. Honestly I would drift off to think of other things.

    "Great story"
    Would you listen to Crossing Lines again? Why?

    No. Couldn't bear to listen to the 'british' accent again. The narrator couldn't make up his mind if he was speaking in an English, Scottish or Irish accent


    What did you like best about this story?

    It moved along at a great pace


    What three words best describe David Doersch’s voice?

    Excellent except for the strange accents


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost
