Wendy Cartmell about this book: Sgt Major Crane, a detective in the Special Investigations Branch of the Military Police, was born from my husband's 22 years service in the British Army. One day I read an article in the Aldershot News about a father killing his child and then himself. Which got me thinking. Why would someone do this? More importantly, why would soldiers do this?
Steps to Heaven looks at the charismatic nature of evangelical churches and the state of mind of soldiers returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Soldiers start killing their families and then themselves but Sgt Major Crane has no idea why. The first death is at Aldershot Garrison. But soon there are deaths at other British Army camps. His investigation is dogged by an unsupportive Captain, another case of a fire at a local house and fellow investigators who are worse than useless. But Crane battles on. Can he find the answers before more innocent children die? Before they are led to take the untimely steps to Heaven?
