Praise for Crossroad
"Cameron keeps the surprises coming. This pulse-pounding tale begs to be read in one sitting."
--Publishers Weekly

"A stellar foundation...Crossroad is marked by dark humor, grace and seeds of connections that hopefully signal a path to more Melisende Dulac."
--Shelf Awareness

"Crossroad is an immersive read and a you-are-there page turner."
--Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Storm

"Dark, funny, and truly mysterious...I loved her from the very first page."
--Victoria Helen Stone, bestselling author of Jane Doe

"Crossroad offers up twist after delicious twist. Readers will root for the prickly and exceedingly relatable mortician-in-training Melisende Dulac."
--Tiffany Quay Tyson, author of The Past is Never and Three Rivers

"Gripping and darkly comic...Packed with unusual and enthralling characters, and set in a wonderful, fully-realized, high desert milieu, Crossroad had me hooked from page one."
--Owen Laukkanen, author of The Forgotten Girls and The Watcher in the Wall

"Cameron deploys cliffhangers with a master's touch, and renders his fictional Barlow County so vividly, you can almost smell the desert sage...He and I will be returning for years to come."
--Chris Holm, Anthony Award winning author of The Killing Kind

"A richly drawn background contextualizes the mystery's melancholy, with bursts of humor emerging like sun through clouds."
--Kirkus Reviews
