SYNOPSIS

 

When Madeleine d’Leon conjures Ned McGinnity as the hero in her latest crime novel, she makes him a serious writer simply because the irony of a protagonist who’d never lower himself to read the story in which he stars, amuses her.

When Ned McGinnity creates Madeleine d’Leon, she is his literary device, a writer of detective ction who is herself a mystery to be unravelled.

As Ned and Madeleine play out their own lives while writing the other’s story, they nd themselves crossing the lines that divide the real and the imagined.

This is a story about two people trying to hold onto each other beyond reality.

REVIEWS

Jeffery Deaver

"A tour de force!...a brilliant blend of mystery, gut-wrenching psychological suspense and literary storytelling... a shining (and refreshing) example of meta-fiction at its best - witty and wry, stylish and a joy to read."

Dean Koontz

“As one for whom certain story lines and characters have become as real as life itself, Crossing the Lines was a pure delight, a swift yet psychologically complex read, cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed.”

Kirkus Review

"In this intriguing and unusual tale, a stunning departure from Gentill’s period mysteries (Give the Devil His Due, 2015, etc.), the question is not whodunit but who’s real and who’s a figment of someone’s vivid imagination."
