Mr. Dugoni continues his engrossing and well written series of Detective Tracy Crosswhite books in this novel where she is simultaneously investigating the murder of a husband and a cold case for a law enforcement colleague in a township a couple of hours away. Captain Nolasco's animosity, thankfully, is almost nonexistent in the book. Highly recommended.
Tracey Crosswhite is trying to solve the murder of a husband, shot in his old home as he was picking up his son. His wife has confessed to the murder and so has his son. Only one of them is guilty it's up to Tracey and her team to unravel the evidence and find the guilty party. An old friend has contacted her about a cold case of a young girl who died 40 years ago it was ruled a suicide but why would the sheriff who died have the file in his home?
Really enjoying the Crosswhite series. Solid flow of narrative, characters are shaping up nicely and there is always a bit of a twist. Good to have some continuity through the stories ( animosity of Nolasco towards Tracy) gives some good depth, as well as the development of Faz, Kins and Del. Looking forward to number 4
A great plot intensified by the story line told in detail. I must admit I speed read a lot of books describing the great details of the story line...she was dressed in a low skirt, enbroided with little fish swimming around the mist vivid sapphire blue, Edith a small tear in the hem, where a pink thread of cotton hung...none of this overdescriptive in this good read.
After the first two books I was hooked, and book three doesn't disappoint. Well crafted stories that develop the characters so you can relate to them. What is really pleasing is the stories are easy to relate to and without a high level of violence. All too often now the real story gets overtaken by violence, but these books are about telling a really good story well and keeping you guessing to try end
Gripping and thrilling. You get to journey with Tracy Crosswhite through cultural differences and amazing landscapes, you can almost see them and smell the trees and forests. Another great storyline which the homicide detective get to relentlessy follow through to the end and justice
A really good novel, my second Robert Dugoni book and I will certainly be reading more. He has a talent for setting the scene and getting to the point which maintains the reader's interest from start to finish.
