Crossed Out - Malcolm Hollingdrake

Fantastic read. Admittedly I haven't read all the series, but this is the second that I have read and I absolutely loved it, and can't wait for the next installment.

Crossed Out blurb

DCI Bennett and his team are back and called to a house in Ripon that has collapsed into a sinkhole where a body is discovered.

Soon old weathered Remembrance Crosses are found dug up. Each one numbered.

DC April Richmond is assigned to help the team due to her impressive biblical knowledge and soon makes a startling discovery.

Meanwhile, Gideon Fletcher is walking around the streets of Harrogate distributing religious texts. Is there a link between Gideon and the crosses? Do the crosses have anything to do with the body in the house?

Bennett and the team find themselves wondering if the killer is exacting revenge or punishment and whatever the answer, they soon realise the clock is ticking.


Author Bio:
You could say that the writing was clearly written on the wall for anyone
born in a library that they might aspire to be an author but to get to that
point Malcolm Hollingdrake has travelled a circuitous route.


Malcolm worked in education for many years, even teaching for a period in
Cairo before he started writing, a challenge he had longed to tackle for
more years than he cares to remember.

Malcolm has written a number of successful short stories and has seven books
now available as well as Only The Dead and Hell's Gate also being available in Audio. 
Presently he is concentrating on a series of crime novels set in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Born in Bradford and spending three years in Ripon, Malcolm has never lost
his love for his home county, a passion that is reflected in the settings
for all three novels.

Malcolm has enjoyed many hobbies including collecting works by Northern
artists; the art auctions offer a degree of excitement when both buying and
certainly when selling. It’s a hobby he has bestowed on DCI Cyril Bennett,
the main character in his latest novel.
