The Crossover Wars


Reviewed by Jose Cornelio for Readers' Favorite

The Crossover Wars (Goodbye Angeline, Unabridged) by S. Warren Winslow is an engaging story that follows Nigel Renoir, a man who sets out to look for his missing girlfriend but who unwitting stirs up a hornet’s nest. He has known Angeline as a co-worker. Both of them had someone in their lives, but they shared meaningful conversations and a strong connection. As Nigel’s interest in Angeline grew stronger, his love for his wife continued to wane as well. Now, something terrible has happened to Angeline and all he wants is to find out what it is. While investigating her demise, he finds himself at the center of a conflict he didn’t know existed, a conflict that ignited the Crossover Wars. Can he walk out of the Sand Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane intact and outwit the enemies he’s made?

The story is told in a unique manner, combining the first-person narrative, which reflects the version of the protagonist, and the third person. This shift in the voice is skillfully used and I enjoyed areas where Nigel shared his own story, allowing readers to vividly imagine the kind of connection he had with Angeline and to clearly understand his drive to uncover the truth about what happened to her. The author writes very strong themes into the story, including love and family, murder, infidelity, human sanity, and a man’s search for a meaningful relationship. The protagonist is a compelling character whose journey pits him against a system that is both corrupt and ruthless. The Crossover Wars is written in great prose, and I loved the vivid descriptions and the author’s deft handling of character development.
