Between the Crosses

(The second book in the Joseph Stark series)
A novel by

Between the Crosses is another sophisticated and brilliantly crafted crime novel, featuring Afghan army veteran and Detective Constable Joseph Stark.

First book If I Should Die was the WINNER of the 2014-2015 Waverton Good Read Award. Previous winners include Mark Haddon, Marina Lewycka, Tom Rob Smith and Rachel Joyce.


No longer a trainee but a freshly-minted Detective Constable, Joseph Stark finds himself working a double homicide. Thomas and Mary Chase were shot dead in their London home, and first impressions are that this is a burglary-gone-bad.

But Stark is unconvinced. Burglary-murders are usually a tragic case of unfortunate timing, but this feels like something else entirely. And when evidence arises to link this murder to a twenty year old cold case the hunt is well and truly on.

Following If I Should Die Joseph Stark's second investigation is a clever, action-packed and entertaining mystery.

Praise for Matthew Frank:
'Stark is such a terrific hero' Sarah Hilary

'A gripping murder story . . . Frank brilliantly maintains a balance between the demands of a complex plot and his character's difficulty in returning to civilian life . . . an accomplished first novel' Sunday Times on If I Should Die

'Well researched and totally convincing, this is the first of several Stark books. Great news if they're as good as this' Sunday Mirror on If I Should Die
