James Paterson, Cross The Line. Book Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * *

A hero can become tiresome, their continued exploits a cause for concern as the writer makes their lives more fantastic, more appealing and even if they take the most severe of beatings in the pursuit of their chosen profession, they somehow come up smelling not just of a single rose, but a whole field of red blooms.

The point sometimes is missed that a hero needs to be fallible, they need to have a weakness and whilst Alex Cross’ love for his family is undoubtedly one, it means that he has no place to go but always on the side of the angels, the go to safety net that means that he must never Cross The Line.
