Out walking with his wife, Lauren, beside the river Tyne, Tom Seymour instinctively risks his life to save a young man who they happen to notice just before he jumps into the icy current. Tom's spontaneous act saves the life of someone whose past, as well as his future, he feels a sense of responsibility towards. Recently released from prison, and living under an assumed name, Danny Miller was tried for murder as a ten-year-old on the basis of Tom's testimony, and assessment of him as a psychologist and an expert witness. When Danny asks Tom to help him sort out his life—beginning with his past—Tom is drawn into a lonely, soul-searching reinvestigation of the child murderer's case.… (mer)

I loved Barker's Regeneration trilogy and her other historical novels. This one takes a quite different turn, and I can't say that it appealed to me at all. The main character, a psychiatrist, saves a young man from drowning in a suicide attempt, and to his surprise, he recognizes a former patient against whom he had testified in a murder trial. Danny Miller, then ten years old, was convicted of killing an old woman, in large part on the basis of Tom Seymour's testimony. But over the years, he began to question his own analysis. When Danny asks to see Tom professionally in order to come to terms with his past, the lives of both are affected.

Border Crossing is described in blurbs as a psychological thriller--which probably explains why it did nothing at all for me. ( )

In clear, concise and straightforward prose, Barker gives us another psychological novel, this time about a possible child killer. Was the ten year old convicted of killing an 80 yr. old woman, or was he in fact innocent. This is something psychiatrist Tom Seymour must ascertain, not once but twice. The suspense in this book was amazing and the subject matter so fascinating. What makes a psychopath or sociopath? I also like that the ending is not all spelled out and some of it is left to the reader's interpretation, though with plenty of clues. Actually downloaded this author's latest book, "Toby's Room" to my kindle. ( )

On a gray September afternoon, Tom and Lauren Seymour are walking along the riverbank arguing about the state of their failing marriage when a young man, after swallowing a bottle of pills, jumps into the river in front of them. Tom rescues the would-be suicide and later discovers that he has saved Danny Miller, a convicted murderer. A child psychologist, Tom had testified 13 years earlier at the then ten-year-old Danny's trial. Did his expert testimony, as Danny believes, sway the jury's verdict and send the boy to prison? Now released and living under an assumed name, Danny asks Tom to help him confront his childhood traumas, especially the murder of the old woman for which he is blamed. Still retaining a trace of guilt about the trial (perhaps Danny was as innocent as he claimed), Tom agrees and soon crosses the border between professional detachment and personal involvement. This is a subtle psychological tale with an edge of menace. Is Danny a victim or a manipulative psychopath? Barker also captures the grittiness and bleak beauty of England's north and its people. ( )

I love Pat Barker but I honestly couldn't put this one down. This is a real departure from her usual subject matter, but Barker is extremely deft at getting to the uncomfortable heart of psychological conflict and treatment. Stunning. ( )

By no means is this novel up to her Regeneration trilogy, but it is still a fascinating and absorbing read. In the end, not much happens, but that's life. ( )

''Border Crossing'' is a far bleaker book, though, and less successful. . . only a few of the characters, all of them women -- the headmaster's wife, for example, and a housing project's Mother Courage with eight troubled children -- emerge as figures to be savored.
