Book 1 of 5: A DS Cross Thriller

Introducing your new crime thriller fix: Bristol detective DS George Cross, champion of the outsider, the voiceless and the dispossessed.

DS George Cross can be rude, difficult, and awkward with people. But his unfailing logic and dogged pursuit of the truth means his conviction rate is the best on the force. So when his police colleagues dismiss the death of a man as a squabble among Bristol’s homeless community, Detective Sergeant George Cross is not convinced.

Who was the unknown man whose weather-beaten body is discovered on Clifton Downs? Did the tragedy that led to a life on the streets also lead to his death?

As he delves into the dead man’s past, Cross becomes convinced that to catch this killer, he needs to solve a cold case murder from years before. A murder that someone has got away with for fifteen years…

Why readers love George Cross . . .

“A must-read series.”
The Times

“The character development is amazing. DS Cross is a complete mystery at the beginning and by the end of the book he is familiar and understandable, even though he is very complex. The plot is also really good. It’s so very interesting to go through the clues and leads with DS Cross. I will be reading more from this author.”
Cherie L Osier

“George Cross is such an incredible and complex character to me. I love the fact that he was not sidelined due to having Asperger’s Syndrome, but was able to use it to his advantage. Tim Sullivan did a masterful job of helping us to see through the eyes of someone with Asperger’s and see them as a friend and not a threat.”
John D Connolly

“A British detective for the 21st century who will be hard to forget.”
