The racial problems of 1962 have found their way to the small West Tennessee town of Humboldt. A white woman has been brutally murdered, and one of Carson’s childhood friends has been accused of the crime. Carson’s friend is a colored man who once worked for his grandfather, but the accusations and problems extend beyond the crime and to the heart of this small community.
Carson finds a divided town; a town divided along the lines of race and the interference of outside groups, which makes this division even wider.
Challenged with defending his friend, Carson must find a solution before the two sides collide, which would definitely have devastating results.
Join Carson, as he faces one of his toughest challenges in ‘the Crossing’.
Thank you for bring back so may memories from my younger years. I have read all 5 of your books so far and will read SU4 soon. Most of my memories are from the chiefs and Mullins ave. I grew up on Mullins and still live there just a few houses from the address you used in your book. As far as the chiefs goes I remember it from my younger years. It was right beside my dads upholstery shop. So it was in full view of our shop dads used to go over there and drink coffee with mr duck sometimes and we can't forget the ramble inn we ate lunch there alot. I 'm sure you might remember my dad Leroy kail. Maybe you could use him in a book I'm sure Carson could use some updated car seats or something. Keep up the good work I enjoy your stories. Lee
Thanks to you, we have had a rebirth and renewal of our lives and times in some of the best years that Humboldt ever experienced. Yet, it is kinda neat to experience these times through the eyes of an adult rather than a teen-ager! It is obvious, through your book sales, that our generation has deep and heartfelt feelings about the '60s. Your stories "bring back that lovin' feeling" of the Humboldt that we grew up in.......the kinder and more gentle times than we have today. Reading your stories provides an escape from reality, and provides us with fleeting, concrete moments of days gone by. Hopefully, it may evoke another generation of readers, who will gleen from the past and can make a difference. Never give up HOPE for Humboldt's future
Finished reading The Crossing. Now that was really good. Can't wait for the next one. Real fun reading cause I have been involved is several situations like those in and around the real Crossing. Spent many a Friday and Saturday night working that beat.
Dear Gerald Thank you for the most flattering recognition given to me in your book 'the Crossing'. I loved meeting the guys and gals you so realistically write about in the 'Carson Reno' series. It's a movie in the making, I hope. "I love mystery movies!" And I especially took a liking to 'Nickie', that hussy, she is such a flirt. I won't pass judgment on a glamorous E.T. though! Sincerely Peggy Byrd P.S. When released, would you please reserve four copies of 'the Crossing'. I want to buy them, to prove to my grandchildren that at least one famous author liked their grandmother!!
