Product description


"Crossing the Lines is a book that smiles and offers cake while it thinks. Sulari Gentill delivers ideas and narrative entertainment, and it's a bonus that her novel is also sub-acidly satirical."--Robyn Walton "The Australian "

"Fans of postmodern fiction will enjoy this departure from Gentill's 1930s series (Miles Off Course, etc.). It's an exploration, as one character puts it, of 'an author's relationship with her protagonist, an examination of the tenuous line between belief and reality, imagination and self, and what happens when that line is crossed.'"--Ian Littauer "Publishers Weekly "

"Crossing the Lines is a new entry in a small sub-genre of metafiction in which we not only see writers at their craft but also see lines between reality and fiction blend so far that the fourth wall is just a distant speck in the rearview mirror."--Annie Smith "NetGalley "

..".Crossing the Lines is a worthwhile read."--Katrina Niidas Holm "Mystery Scene Magazine "

"This is an elegant exploration of the creative process, as well as a strong defense of the crime-fiction genre, as Gentill illustrates the crossing of lines between imagination and reality. Rich with insights that can add pleasure to the reading of crime fiction."--Michele Leber "Booklist "

"In this intriguing and unusual tale, a stunning departure from Gentill's period mysteries (Give the Devil His Due, 2015, etc.), the question is not whodunit but who's real and who's a figment of someone's vivid imagination."--Kirkus Reviews

"A tour de force! Crossing the Lines is a brilliant blend of mystery, gut-wrenching psychological suspense and literary storytelling. The novel stands as a shining (and refreshing) example of meta-fiction at its best--witty and wry, stylish and a joy to read."--Jeffery Deaver, New York Times best-selling author

"As one for whom certain story lines and characters have become as real as life itself, Crossing the Lines was a pure delight, a swift yet psychologically complex read, cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed."--Dean Koontz, New York Times Best-selling author

"A delightful, cerebral novel featuring a crime writer who grows dangerously enamored with her main character. As the interplay between creator and created reaches Russian-nesting-doll complexity, it forces us to question the nature of fiction itself."--Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times best-selling author of Orphan X and The Nowhere Man

"Literary or pop fiction lovers will enjoy"--Library Journal
