William Huber is dead. Two of his life-insured clients are found dead too.

Harry Reese tries to solve the mystery and to find out what happened. As much as he goes into this case other people are discovered dead or missing.

It seems that corrupt cops and agents along with family members of the dead and missing people are involved.

I find it interesting to discover what is going on in 1901’s Manhattan’s life when big amount of money is at stake, gambling people involved and life insurance policies questionable.

I love Emmie, Harry’s wife. She has her own way to help investigating the case. She is surprising, funny and always a step before Harry.

Wish to read more of this amusing couple's mysteries. ( )

Crossings is a great book. It is a unique adventure that really makes you think. It blends humor, action, and psychological-thriller style genres. All of the characters are presented as very real people. You get to know them and you have a real interest in them. The twists and turns are incredibly clever. It's a very short book, 253 pages, and is worth the time.

The absolute brilliance of Stewart's writing is best shown in this novel. The level of details given really put the reader into these settings with the characters, whether the reader wants to be there or not. An appetizer resulting in a desire to read more of Stewart. ( )
