Type and Cross

by Staci Troilo

Blood defines family. Blood reveals betrayal.

Heartbreaking, guttural, and uncomfortably close to home, award-winning author Staci Troilo brings to life the riveting story of a marriage on the rocks and a family in crisis.

Dr. Royce Keller is no stranger to blood. As a world-class physician and Chief of Emergency Medicine at Oakland Regional Hospital in Cathedral Lake, it’s his job. More than that, it’s his calling. To Royce, blood is the very essence of life—what ties his family, his career, and his world together... right up until he learns everything he believes is wrong.

Vanessa Keller has a secret she’s kept hidden for almost two decades. It’s her burden, her cross to bear. To Vanessa, the truth is a choice—something best forgotten for the greater good of her husband, their children, and their future together... right up until the day it comes back to haunt her.

A gripping, haunting tale of dysfunction, betrayal, heroism, grief, and loss, Staci Troilo’s Type and Cross is the story of one family’s tortuous journey from devastation to redemption.
