Please be prepared for a live video of this review on December 23, 2022 at 4 PM. This book will deal with human trafficking, rape, incest, murder, and trained killers on both sides of the law. You do not want to miss this video. Thank you. Here is the script that I used for the video.
Hello everyone, welcome to the Matta critic, and welcome to the fifth live video of this channel. This is Matthew Hemenway. In this episode of Matta Critic, I will be reviewing and analyzing the Book “A Cross to Bear, a Jack Sheridan Mystery, book 1”, published by Vince Vogel in 2017 and is available on amazon.com and is a self-published book. What this book does is that it has human trafficking, rape, murder, and incest in this one book. It also has trained killers on both sides of the law. You want to be signed up for YouTube memberships to be able to participate in Members only Live Chat at any level. I will answer your questions that you leave in the comment section below once I am done with the review. I will give you my rating at the end of the review.
Please consider checking out my Facebook page to get links and check out the posts from YouTube, TikTok and Patreon. Speaking of Facebook, I have been posting videos coming soon for Patreon and YouTube. I also have been posting coming-soon videos for YouTube in the community section of my YouTube channel. I hope this episode inspires you to read, watch, and learn. Now on with the review.
The book starts with the murder of Becky Dorring while being hung on a cross. Why this sounds familiar is that I reviewed Reacher Season 1 on Amazon Prime which had a remarkably similar storyline of people being hung on crosses. Yes, this story is doing this, and these murders are happening with people being crucified. If you remember in the Bible, Jesus Christ was hung on a cross being crucified. It was what the Roman Empire did to criminals who they considered the worst of people. This story involves human trafficking and bad police officers. You have trained killers on both sides of the law.
This murder of Becky Dorring will bring Alex Dorring back to London. Alex Dorring is Becky Dorring’s brother, and he will want to get justice for Becky. Alex had his father who was a police officer (cop) that was murdered on a cross. This is personal for Alex. He rescues Chloe Casper. Yes, Chloe Casper spells her last name like the friendly ghost Casper.
Jack Sheridan is a Detective Sergeant in this story which is under a Detective Inspector. Jack Sheridan is not a young police officer (cop). He is old enough to be a grandfather. His daughter Carrie has been gone for 10 years. She suddenly visits, and she lets Jack, her father, know that she has a son named Ty. This is a surprise to say the least and Jack must ask Jean to help babysit his grandson.
There is incest as well as murder in this story. There is also rape in this story. These girls are under 18 or barely over 18. Becky Dorring died at the age of 19. She was barely an adult when she was murdered in this story.
Becky Dorring was being raped by her stepfather Steven Cuthbert in this story. It is unfortunate, but this is not unheard of. Steven Cuthbert is married to Helen Dorring who is Alex and Becky Dorring’s mother. Helen Dorring knows Jack Sheridan who is a good police officer (cop) who follows the rules and wants to get justice.
Alex Dorring wants to burn the Doyles down. The Doyles run the sex trafficking ring that is using these girls as gypsies. If they get out of line, they will make an example of them. Billy Doyle is a horrible person who takes pleasure in killing people. Alex Dorring is trained by his majesty secret service. Alex is a trained killer and knows there are major players out there. The Earles are involved in this criminal enterprise as well. Alex Dorring wants to help to create a war between the Earles and the Doyles.
Steven Cuthbert is connected to the Doyles. He is Becky and Alex Dorring’s stepfather. He is the one that raped Becky when she was just 13. This is not unheard as there are girls here in the United States that get raped by people they know. The girls are supposed to be protected from their fathers or stepfathers. He also has been raping other girls that are under 18. He is in the crosshairs of Alex Dorring. Steven is what you call a pedophiliac. This is a person that rapes and molest children. You will not feel sorry for what happens to him in this story.
What will happen to the Doyles will be justice? Some of you may say, this is extreme, but when the law fails sometimes, there are those who need to do what is right. This is like Reacher Season 1 which I reviewed on this channel. Jack Reacher had to stop crooked police officers (cops) and crooked businesspeople from destroying this small town in Georgia. There was also a crooked FBI agent in Reacher. There are crooked police officers (cops) in this story and there is a good police officer (cop) in this story in the name of Jack Sheridan. He wants to get justice and find the answers needed to do that.
As not to be revealed anymore, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the reader to the climax of this story.
I will give you, my rating. I give A Cross to Bear, A Jack Sheridan Mystery, Book 1, a 10 out of 10. It was fun but tells an immensely powerful story. It has plenty of action but keeps it at a personal level. Jack Sheridan wants to get justice and to help bring the murderers to justice. He wants to end the child sex trafficking ring that is going on in this story. Jack will end up getting help from those you will not expect. There is a crooked police officer (cop) in this story. He is at the top of the chain in Scotland Yard. This guy has been helping the Doyles for years. The book moves like a TV series or a movie. If someone wants to make it into one, it will make a great series or a movie. I will also leave a link to a Charlotte Observer article that talked about sex trafficking at the bottom of this video. Thank you.
