The fictional biography of Jackson Cross, author of an inflammatory study of religious culture.
It's no secret that Jackson Cross was one of the most enigmatic authors of the early 21st Century. Yet, surprisingly, the sole source of information we have on his life can only be found within the pages of his own controversial novel, The Judas Conspiracy. (Hardcort Press, 2010) Until now.
A Cross to Bare assumes the burden of exposing Jackson Cross, his motives and methods.
Here for the first time are the answers to virtually all the unsolved questions regarding the series of events leading up to the author's untimely death. This novel offers transcripts from the famous Tom Green Radio Hour examining the day Cross was trapped in a Manhattan office building by an angry mob of Christian fundamentalists, and provides insight into exactly how Jackson and his entourage survived. The facts regarding Cross' participation in the massacre at the Sinatra compound in Colorado during that cold week of 2012 are revealed at last. And, finally, pieced together from eyewitness reports and in-depth interviews with several principal participants, the truth behind that fateful night in Arizona, during the filming of The Judas Conspiracy motion picture, can now be made public.
All this, plus excerpts from The Judas Conspiracy and transcripts of Jackson's stand-up comedy routines. Never before has Cross been examined so thoroughly.
It's still probably not what you think.

DO NOT START THIS BOOK UNLESS YOU HAVE SOME TIME ON YOUR HANDS! Once you begin reading A Cross to Bare, it is next to impossible to put down. Mr. Fredrick has created a universe of absorbing characters and takes them on a wild ride ride through some remarkably creative situations in our near future. The story is equal parts tell-all bio, pop-culture mirror and science fiction masterwork and kept me in thrall throughout with extremely well executed pacing and well-defined sub-plots. It is a testament to the author's skill that he is able to keep each story-line and character fresh and interweave them with a panache that would make Robert Altman envious. If there is any good taste left in the film industry, the movie will be in development soon!
This is the kind of book that you just can't put down! I have just recenlty finished the book, and let me tell you, I loved every minute of it. I hung on every word and was completely entranced, it was like a drug. It is the kind of book that will leave you wanting more and keep you coming back. No matter how many times you read it it will never lose it's appeal. This is the best story I have read in a very long time! The book is a work of pure genius! I highly recommend this book to all who have a big imagination, an open mind, and a great sense of humor. It was complete addictive reading.
