By Karen Fritz

Veteran homicide detective, Gabe Parker, and rookie detective, Alex Garcia, are working the high-profile murder of a prominent doctor’s wife and son. The path to finding their killer leads Parker and Garcia to the seediest part of town and a world very different from their victims’ affluent lives. Parker and Garcia struggle to find the one clue that will unravel the case and start a cascade of events ultimately leading to an unexpected conclusion.

What They Are Saying About Crossroads

In her debut police procedural/mystery, Crossroads, Karen Fritz takes you on an adventure with twists and turns that will shock, amaze and sometimes scare you.

Detective Gabe Parker is used to solving the most gruesome murders, then a well-known doctor’s wife and child die in an automobile accident and the chief wants the case solved quickly and with as little notoriety as possible.

When you think you have it all figured out, another curve will be thrown at you. In the end, you will look at the evidence and say, ‘I would have never known.’ Once you start reading this book, you can’t put it down. You’ll have to know what happens. I recommend you not start reading Crossroads at night unless you plan on getting no sleep because you have to find out how it all wraps up.

Crossroads is everything the title suggests. Where good meets evil and the experienced meets the novice. Fritz masterfully weaves the interlining story lines right up until the very end, when they come crashing together at the Crossroads. If you like high-octane suspense, you’re going to love this.
