The former St. Columb’s College English teacher has said the new book will be published by The Dome Press.

And, according to the author, it marks something of a departure from the popular Benedict Devlin and Lucy Black police thriller series for which he is famed.

“‘The Last Crossing’ is a stand-alone novel and a book I really loved writing. Thirty years ago four friends entered a woodland near Glasgow but only three of them came back out again.

“Now, a lifetime later, those same three meet for the first time since that night to return to the woods to see if they can remember where they buried their friend. A story about memory, love, guilt, and the consequences of violence, it’s a little different from my previous books,” said the acclaimed crime writer.

Mr. McGilloway has also announced that Inspector Devlin will be making a “long overdue“ return in spring 2021 for the first time since 2012’s ‘The Nameless Dead.’
