    In the fourth Evan Dalaney novel, Evan returns to China Lake for her high school reunion and discovers that the death toll among her classmates is unusually high After two classmates are brutally murdered, Evan suspects something is up and begins to piece together what might be killing her classmates.It all stems back to a day when the group took a field trip to the local Navy base and were exposed to some kind of experiment The results are still haunting and affecting the group to this day and it also created a serial killer who is hunting down the people on the trip and slowly eliminating them Evan is forced to dig into her past to find answers and to try and stop the killer before he or she kills again And when Evan discovers she s pregnant, things become even urgent.As a check your brain at the door and just enjoy the ride, Crosscut works well But the problems of having a first person perspective begin to break through as the novel progresses The story requires that some events unfold outside of Evan s viewpoint and Meg Gardiner shows us those events It s all about upping the suspence quotient, but unfortunately it proves distracting in the novel s final third Gardiner is forced to jump between three perspectives in the novel s final pages and it makes the ending seem a...

    The basic premise of Crosscut is a pretty good one Evan Delaney returns to China Lake for her 15 year high school reunion When she goes there she realizes that many of her classmates have died under unusual circumstances It all ties back to an explosion at the naval base where secret operations were being held during a class trip Now, some of her classmates are being murdered pretty horrifically, and it all ties back to Coyote, a CIA operative that was exposed to the same thing that is harming Evan s classmates.Although the concept was pretty good, the execution in this novel is very flawed My biggest issues was that it has massive believability and logic gaps about the size of a Mars crater There were too many things, especially related to Coyote, that made me cringe as I read them because they were so utterly unrealistic The character Coyote was also a poor one that lacked any shred ...

    Too long, and the premise becomes over the top as it progresses.

    Crosscut is the fourth in Meg Gardiner s Evan Delany series, and a masterfully written and constructed story.This time around, Evan and her on again, off again fianc Jesse have returned to China Lake, California for Evan s high school reunion only to learn that an inordinate number of her classmate have passed away under odd circumstances And yet another alum has missed the festivities because she had been brutally tortured and murdered that evening And I though my reunion sucked Gardiner s knack for detail and thorough research shine through the telling and lend not only an authority to the telling, but also make the danger and drama all the present The story unfolds and draws the reader along with each twist and turn, being shocked along with the characters We also get the treat of meeting Evan s parents this time out Cleverly, Gardiner has laid out enough back story over the past books that neither requires long introduction, and their personalities add volumes to further understanding who Katherine Evan Delany is, and why.Mostly though, I like this story because the heroes aren t super cops or action figures Instead, they re normal people with feelings and problems and flaws, just like the rest of us The thing that sets these people apart is, rather, an astounding level of gumption...
