Crossfire by R.D Nixon

(AD) Good Morning. Today I have a review of Crossfire by R.D Nixon. Thank you to Random Things Tours for the opportunity to read and review this book


To what depths would you sink to protect your own?

Hogmanay 1987

A prank robbery has fatal consequences.

Five Years Later

Highlands town Abergarry is shaken by the seemingly gratuitous murder of a local man. The case is unsolved.

Present Day

Ten-year-old Jamie, while on holiday in Abergarry with his mum Charis, overhears a conversation. To him, it is all part of a game. But this is no game and the consequences are far more serious than Jamie ever imagined.

Old wounds are about to be reopened.

Struggling PI team Maddy Clifford and Paul Mackenzie find themselves involved by a chance meeting. How deep into those wounds will they have to delve to unravel the mystery?

Set in the brooding yet beautiful Scottish Highlands, Crossfire is the first, gripping novel in the brand-new Clifford-Mackenzie Crime Series from the brilliant R.D. Nixon.


Crossfire is a book that has multiple characters across various timelines and at first admittedly I struggled to keep up.

However, after a while the story started flowing and I was able to easily differentiate between the characters and timelines.

The book was full of mystery and intrigue and had great pacing. The characters are all unique and interesting.

A worthy read for those who like crime books.

About The Author

Writing as R. D. Nixon. Terri Nixon was born in Plymouth, Devon, but during her childhood her family moved to the moorland village of North Hill in Cornwall. There, at the age of nine, Terri discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since. She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one’s ever offered to pay her for doing those. Terri’s first commercially published novel was Maid of Oaklands Manor, in 2013, and since then she has published a further ten novels, with a twelfth due out December 2020. Terri also writes under the name T Nixon, and has contributed to anthologies under the names Terri Pine and Teresa Nixon. She has returned to Plymouth, and works in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Business at Plymouth University‚Ķ where she is constantly baffled by the number of students who don’t possess pens.
