“Kill his wife before she kills him”
Cross Killer follows the story of Eileen and Malcolm Muldoon, a couple whose twenty-five year marriage has finally grown stale. Utterly convinced that Eileen wants him dead, and encouraged by the unlikely friendship he has forged with his new friend Rita, Malcolm knows what he must do.
Meanwhile, a lunatic is stalking the streets, preying on innocent women. Women who are all connected to Malcolm and whom he bears some form of known grudge. As the death toll rises, and Malcolm’s behaviour becomes more erratic, Eileen starts to question his involvement. She has suspected that her husband is capable of murder ever since that unfortunate incident when the pushchair mysteriously fell into the swimming pool with the child still strapped inside, and Malcolm simply pulled out a chair and sat down to watch.
Even DI Lucas Elliott seems convinced of Malcolm’s guilt. After all, Malcolm does have an uncanny knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Will Malcolm succeed in his quest to rid himself of his wife so he can start his new life with Rita? Is he guilty of the other murders? He definitely has a secret. But then so does Eileen. As does Lucas... and Rita.
This story will appeal to fans of crime, thrillers and whodunit’s. Unlike some of the more traditional crime novels, Cross Killer is a refreshingly light-hearted read with humour intertwined throughout the plot.
