Review by: Sheila Deeth on July 18, 2013 :
Sixty-year-old Bob disappeared and ten years later Jessica marries Sam. Comfortable on their ranch together, they play Scrabble, and all is well until Sam’s letters start rearranging themselves. It must be coincidence—he must just not have noticed what they say. But soon his crossword puzzle’s offering clues in the midst of its answers, and all these words add up to something Sam really doesn’t want to know.
Short, scary, and ultimately satisfying, Cross Words is a cool tale of love’s sweet words gone wrong and crossed with horror in the evening of life.
