A Steep Price (Tracy Crosswhite #6) Reviews
This is a great addition to the stellar Detective Tracy Crosswhite and the Violent Crime Unit series based in Seattle, Washington. There are two storylines that dominate this book. The pregnant Tracy finds herself immersed in a court trial as a witness, but responds when a colleague tells her about a missing person case. Washington University medical student and aspiring paediatrician, Kavita Mukherjee has disappeared, and Tracy's gut instinct tells her there is more to the case, besides she has ...more
I’m a fan of Robert Dugoni's books and have read them all except his single non-fiction book. This is the sixth entry in the Tracy Crosswhite series, and I’m happy to say the series is going strong.
Once again, there are two cases for the A team, and there is a new “fifth wheel” for the team, Andrea Gonzalez. Faz and Del investigate the shooting death of an anti-gang anti-drug activist. Del throws his back out, so Andrea teams with Faz. Faz is also dealing with a personal crisis. Tracy and Kins a ...more
Solid, intense, and captivating!
Full review to follow shortly.
A Steep Price is another solid read in the series but yet again a very different type of novel compared to the previous one, and the one before that. There’s no mistaking his signature style though, it certainly contains his typical cheeky humour again, and I especially love the way he references – quite ironically – lawyers at least once in every novel.
‘We tan the way lawyers tell the truth, never on purpose and never very well’
One of the strengths of this series and why I came to enjoy reading ...more
Book 6 of the Tracy Crosswhite series has Tracy working with her young protégé and hiding a secret from her team. Del and Fazzio are working a separate case which gives them a lot of page time and action in this book. Another well written "Tracy" book by Mr. Dugoni, and in my humble opinion, a nice wrap up to the series. If there are more to come, I think I would be disappointed.
**Thank you to the publisher and Net Galley in exchange of an honest opinion.**
EXCERPT: The daylight had nearly extinguished, the forest now an ever-deepening gray. It was time to go home.
Something moved. She turned.
Something in the brush. She turned again, then a third time. Something circling her.
She turned yet again, but saw only the trees, straight and tall, like darkened sentries. She fought to hold her breath, struggling to listen. The crickets clicked and the unseen insects buzzed. A light breeze caught the limbs of the trees, causing them to moan and creak. A bu ...more
I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley and i can honestly say bits a hit! It gripping, intense and horrifying throughout! It approaches every parents worst nightmare in one mystery and every marriages in another! Keeps a steady pace and is filled with twists! I highly recommend reading this!
In my little world of books, not much makes me happier than finding a dependably enjoyable series. And this one, featuring Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite, fills that description - I look forward to reading each installment knowing I won't be disappointed. This book, the 6th in the series, is no exception (and to that end, many thanks to the publisher, via NetGalley, for the opportunity to read an advance review copy).
Tracy, now married to Dan, an attorney, is expecting a baby. She's ...more
