I was a little miffed, I suppose, by being fooled so handily, but also by the faulty reasoning of some people. Are you sure you want to Yes No. I love how it creeps into the story and finally takes over. My Sister's Grave was a good mystery with a little love interest that I hope develops as the series continues. With fast-paced action and a great narrative, Dugoni's return shall be greeted with much applause by fans and newbies alike.
Because I mostly feel the same way about my kindle. View all 9 comments. Mar 05, James Thane rated it really liked it Shelves: Twenty years earlier, her younger sister, Sarah, who was then eighteen, disappeared after the two had participated in a shooting competition.
As Tracy went off to dinner with her boyfriend, Sarah left to drive home in the rain and was never seen again. The two sisters had been best of friends and Tracy has never forgiven herself for allowing Sarah to drive home alone.
Twenty years later, the pain is still sharp and ultimat My Sister's Grave introduces Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite. Twenty years later, the pain is still sharp and ultimately led Tracy to give up her career as a teacher to become a homicide detective. A previously convicted rapist named Edmund House was arrested and convicted of Sarah's murder, largely on the basis of circumstantial evidence and on the testimony of the local sheriff who claimed that House had confessed to killing Sarah, even though there was no tape recording or witness to back up the sheriff's claim.
Tracy has never been totally convinced of House's guilt and has continued digging into the case in an effort to satisfy herself of the fact that justice either was or was not done. As the book opens, Sarah's remains are finally found by two hunters in a heavily wooded area that had previously been covered by a lake. The discovery of the body raises even more questions about the case against Edmund House and makes Tracy even more determined to make sure that the person who killed her sister pays the price.
Her efforts will antagonize a good number of people in the small town where she grew up and where the crime occurred. They will also place Tracy herself in a considerable amount of jeopardy. This is a very compelling story that combines the best elements of a legal thriller with that of a gripping police procedural.
Tracy Crosswhite makes a very engaging protagonist and the story moves at such a fast clip that it's almost impossible to put the book down once it gets rolling. All in all, a very good introduction to this series. View all 23 comments. Crime Fiction, Mystery Fans. It's been a good year for this crime fiction fanatic.
I have read some really good books in this genre and this is no exception. Not one minute of boredom whilst reading this. S It's been a good year for this crime fiction fanatic. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past—and open the door to deadly danger.
You know the term "let sleeping dogs lie? But despite warnings to leave the case alone, Tracy won't rest until she sees the investigation into her sister's death reopened. It's got one of those plots where you really can see some things coming, but they are planted to be that obvious because even the reveals are interesting and contain a few things you would not expect. I liked that. I liked that I was tipped slightly off-kilter a few times.
The build up to the finish of this book is gradual, with tension mounting and events rolling out until nothing can stop where it is heading. And it ain't pretty. The characters are really well written, I loved Tracy's loyalty and love for her dead sister, admired her for not giving up on seeking answers.
I want her to be my sister, I know at least if I got murdered, my sister would not rest until the truth was out there. I digress slightly into fantasising about not being an only child anymore It's just a really good book, it's highly entertaining and keeps you alert and wanting more, you will want to power through pages to get to the final outcome. I freaking loved the last few chapters, I was out of my seat and cheering for some characters and yelling at others.
One of my memorable crime fiction reads of Awesome sauce. I am not afraid of the dark, I am not afraid of the dark, I am not afraid.

That bridge is paved with the stones of so many unanswered questions and no physical remains. Tracy and her sister, Sarah, were inseparable until the night of her disappearance. Out of sight. But the tragedy lingers and takes its Well now But the tragedy lingers and takes its toll.
The family dynamics change forever. Tracy re-invents herself from chemistry teacher to a Seattle detective leaving the likes of her small town of Cedar Grove in the rearview mirror. Her experiential background leaves an unsettled feeling about how the murder case was handled by the local police. Although Edmund House was convicted of the crime, Tracy is not sure that justice prevailed.
She is convinced that there is more to what meets the eye here. The memory of it all is suffocating her mind, heart, and soul.
And the only road to peace is to tread down its pathway once again. You all know what I'm talking about. Robert Dugoni creates his lead character as an intelligent, no nonsense, analytically reasoning female. Just the way I like it. And here's the bonus. Dugoni knows his way around a courtroom.
The dialogue reflects just that. He reaches into corners untapped and left behind in the shadows. His characters are well-developed and the coffee cup doesn't overflow with unnecessary bogus information. There is plenty of deep-seeded emotion here without leaving sticky footprints behind. Just the facts, mam, just the facts. I'm sold on this series and am looking forward to the rest of them in this Dugoni Dynasty.
Simply good writing and a solid storyline. You've got my attention, Dugoni. On to the next! View all 40 comments. Mar 13, Theresa Alan rated it really liked it. Since then, Tracy has become a detective. When a body is found, Tracy returns to the small town in Washington state where she grew up and works with a friend from college who is now a lawyer to go over the court case again and find any holes in it in an effort to make sure they have the right killer.
The characters are likeable and the ending is filled with satisfying twists and turns. View all 5 comments. Jan 11, Luffy rated it really liked it. Tracy Crosswhite loses her sister, Sarah, who disappears without a trace, when they were young. Tracy uses this watershed of an event to enroll as a homicide detective. When someone is caught as the killer of her sister, Tracy doesn't believe he did it, for reasons of her own. Sarah's body is discovered and that sets the ball rolling for the appeasement and peace of mind for Tracy, and closure too.
Recently I've been reading lots of first books in their series where the victim is someone very clo Tracy Crosswhite loses her sister, Sarah, who disappears without a trace, when they were young.
Recently I've been reading lots of first books in their series where the victim is someone very close to the main character. These type of books are heavily attractive as a standalone effort. I liked this book. It grew on me. I liked Tracy's near and dear people. The courtroom scenes are well enacted.
I've got no complaints, really. The author is spot on in his details of the cases Tracy handles. Of course, the murderer is found, Of course, Tracy gets closure, but the ride is well worth the read.

You warned her to stick to the highway and avoid the dark, isolated country road to your home. The character outlined above is Tracy Crosswhite, now a Seattle homicide detective. While working a case she receives notice that two hunters have found the remains of a body in the hills above her hometown, Cedar Grove. Is this the body of her long missing sister Sarah?
Robert Dugoni drew me in like a spider to his web. In flashbacks we come to know the Crosswhite family, particularly the bond between the sisters. Cedar Grove, north of Seattle, is a small town with all that comes with that.
People know people, the friendships go back years and everyone takes care of their own. Dugoni is a very descriptive in this chilly cold case mystery both in character development and setting. Winter and all its fury come to life under his pen and he fleshes out the characters so I feel an emotional connection.
I thought it was just right, brooding at times, thoughtful, building momentum and tension as I accelerated to its finish. Dugoni has many books under his belt. There are now three Tracy Crosswhite police procedurals and a 0. View all 22 comments. May 31, Christine rated it really liked it Recommended to Christine by: Sue 5. Tracy decided to become a law enforcement officer after her sister Sarah disappeared twenty years previously and was never found.
This is an easy book to fly through. The plot, though pretty straightforward, held my interest throughout, though there are some slower spots during the first third of the story. Once the story gets rolling there is plenty of suspense and some nifty little twists to relish. There is a bit of possible romance, which I never object to. Most importantly, I was fooled in the end, always a plus.
There is more courtroom action than I expected, but I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed it. Tracy is actually nice! She has no issues relating to others, a positive change from many of the protagonists we see in crime fiction these days.
I am stoked to read more Tracy Crosswhite. I plan to be on board for the full run. View all 34 comments. This book was very entertaining.
The short chapter format briskly moves the story along. The characters are well-written, engaging, and the plot was believable. Detective Tracy Crosswhite,42 years old, from the Seattle homicide, lost her younger sister Sarah, over twenty years ago, when she disappeared and feels somewhat responsible. The sisters had been involved in the sport of shooting, and after a championship, Sarah, was kidnapped and murdered, her body was never found.
A local man on parole for rape, was arrested and convicted of the crime. Tracy never believed he was the real killer. Tracy is now determined to solve the mystery and find the real killer. But what really happened that one night so long ago? This novel will appeal to fans of legal crime thrillers, courtroom dramas, investigations, and police procedures with well-developed characters, in a small town setting I definitely enjoyed reading this novel, and had it not been for Christmas and the holidays , I would have devoured it faster.

This book has a pretty good grasp on the first part, but utterly fails on the second. That's not easy to do, it's worth noting. However, the writing is atrocious. I'm a copy editor, but when I read for fun, I like to shut off that part of my brain and leave it at work.
When a book's grammar is so bad it pulls me out of the story and makes me get out my mental red pen, I get cranky! This book like all Amazon's imprints--at least that I've read needs a good proofreading: Dialogue is clunky too. But even fixing those things wouldn't make this good writing. The book's worst failing is its lack of sentence variety. Almost every sentence starts with subject, verb, over and over again. There were 10 sentences in a row that started this way.
This is dull and repetitive. Characters could use some work too--I'm not sure any of them rose above stereotypes but, this seems to be another standard of the genre.
I'm giving this 2 stars "it was okay" instead of 1 because, like I said, the story held together. I read to the end to find out "who dun it. But I doubt I'll read any more of this author's work unless his writing significantly improves.
I received this review copy from the publisher on NetGalley. Thanks for the opportunity to read and review; I appreciate it! View all 13 comments. Melissa Martin's Reading List I thought the book was good! There are a lot of twists and turns for sure! And I didn't even pay attention that this is the first book so I'm guessing this is a series!
I like Tracy Crosswhite's character. Tracy is a detective, she decided this when her sister Sarah disappeared 20 years ago and there was never any closure for Tracy. The town of Cedar Grove put a man named Edmund House away for the crime, but something seemed off to Tracy The town, including her father, said it was Edmund because he was in jail for a short 6 years for beating and raping a girl The book goes back and forth between now and when Tracy and Sarah were last together.
You get little clues along the way. Most of it was pretty obvious at one point but then they turn around and throw a twist in there! Anyway, so these remains were found by a mans dog while they were out in the woods. These remains were proven to be Tracy's sister Sarah.
Tracy immediately goes to Cedar Grove from Seattle to be involved in what is going on. Sarah's remains were found in the woods, but something was weird about the findings I'm not saying what! Tracy and Sarah were friends with Dan and a bunch of kids growing up..
Anyway, Tracy catches up with Dan and he is a lawyer, she asks him to take a look at all of the work she has kept on the case for 20 years. She tells him there are some things that don't add up. Dan decides to take on the case with Tracy because he can see the things she pointed out to him. It's like really Needless to say they are huge and cool. I always have to mention the dogs Every turn that Tracy and Dan make, they find more secrets and someone starts threatening their lives.
I mean you have to have that right? It all comes out in the end and it wasn't what I was expecting. Like I said before, some things you know right off the bat, but then the author just twists it around a little bit and your like.. All in all, I liked the book a lot and I plan on reading more Tracy Crosswhite books. View all 19 comments. Jun 28, Liz rated it really liked it Shelves: I listened to this after reading the succeeding 3 books.
It's one of the best of the series. Very interesting, well done mystery with some great twists and turns. Oct 05, Zoeytron rated it liked it Shelves: A smart murder mystery, well-written, and a plot that is not too convoluted. Lead characters are believable. I particularly liked Sheriff Roy Calloway, 'tough as a two dollar steak'. Okay, so it's a small town in Washington and not Chicago, but this couldn't have been inadvertent on the author's part.
Loved it! This was a Kindle-First offering.
Enjoyable read. View all 6 comments. May 08, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a pleasure read for me and I am so glad I finally got to enjoy it. This is a unique thriller that kept me guessing all the way to the horrifying conclusion that had me on the edge of my seat and in complete shock. Tracy never bought into the theory that the man accused of killing her sister was guilty. But, the local sheriff pulls out all the stops to make sure a new trial never takes place.
Was there a conspiracy? Who really killed Sarah and how will Tracy manage to prove it? It took only a couple of chapters to hook me into this story. Tracy is a person riddled with guilt over what happened to her sister, but is tenacious to the point of obsession in her determination to see justice done. I was enthralled by the small town secrets, manipulations, and the legal wrangling which was top notch, and something I really miss in crime novels these days.
The twists are subtle and I fell headlong into the clever trap set for me. I was a little miffed, I suppose, by being fooled so handily, but also by the faulty reasoning of some people. I think this book dabbled in many sub-genres of crime fiction adding a dab of legal thriller, a smidgen of psychological thriller, a slice of whodunit mystery and a sprinkle of suspense, blending them all together to create a top notch thriller.
The dialogue is smart and believable, and I appreciated the portrayal of a lead female character as being both smart and sensitive, and thankfully level headed and grounded. Overall, this is an emotional story, a very smart thriller, through provoking and very original. I will most definitely be back for more Robert Dugoni novels!! View all 16 comments.
Tracy's sister Sarah disappeared 20 years ago and Edmund House, a convicted rapist is accused and jailed for the murder, despite that they never found the body. But Tracy never believed that Edmund was the real killer. Now Sarah's body is finally discovered and Tracy sets out to find the real killer. But it seems that there are people out there that don't want her to know the truth The story is intense and mov Tracy's sister Sarah disappeared 20 years ago and Edmund House, a convicted rapist is accused and jailed for the murder, despite that they never found the body.
The story is intense and moving and I was deeply moved by the story several times. This is a real page-turner. You really want to find out who killed Sarah and who hid her body.
There was a moment towards the end when I was a bit confused about why she wanted Edmund released from prison, I mean, he was bad news and releasing him wouldn't bring her sister back. But then I released that with him cleared for the murder could she open the case again and find the real killer. So that made sense that she wanted free him especially since it seemed that he could be framed for the murder. The ending. To be frank. I'm not sure that I really liked it, I saw it as a possibility that it could end something like this.
And, it just didn't seem that surprising when the book ended it the way I suspected it would. So this book had a very strong beginning and middle part, a less strong ending. Still good and I will without a doubt read the next book. Especially since I have it waiting for me to be read. Jan 04, Michael Slavin rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is very interesting but explodes in the last third. She even becomes a cop to search for the killer.
This takes place in the mountains of Washington State and one of the biggest elements of this story is the snow storm. I love how it creeps into the story and finally takes over. You probably won't see the ending comin This book is very interesting but explodes in the last third.
You probably won't see the ending coming, even though it's right in front of you. This is a really good book from a really good author.
Highly recommend! View all 4 comments. While one of the more tame mysteries I've read lately, this is still a solid who-dun-it that has a storyline that was believable. The characters felt real outside of the author having some fun with their names and had some depth, but for some reason I was never fully invested in this book. I think what held me back from a higher rating was that this read very monotone for me. I didn't think about this book once I finished reading for the night.
I found myself skimming through certain sections t While one of the more tame mysteries I've read lately, this is still a solid who-dun-it that has a storyline that was believable. I found myself skimming through certain sections to get to something that helped progress the story forward. And I found myself often checking to see how many pages were left in the book.. I already have book two in the series lined up, so I'm hoping I'll feel more connected with that one.
The ending did leave a nice set up for where book two can start out ARC from NetGalley View all 17 comments. This book was a great introduction to Tracy Crosswhite.
