A Cold Trail
By Robert Dugoni
Engaging from the first page to the last.
This is the seventh book in the Tracey Crosswhite series. Although it is part of a series it can be read independently of the others.
The plot is well developed, with a fast-flowing storyline, that reads easily and well. The story will leave you guessing until the last few chapters as to who the murder is.
Characters are well developed. They are introduced into the story line, so as not to confuse the reader.
The last time homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite was in Cedar Grove, it was to see her sister’s killer put behind bars. Now she’s returned for a respite and the chance to put her life back in order for herself, her attorney husband, Dan, and their new daughter. But tragic memories soon prove impossible to escape.
Dan is drawn into representing a local merchant whose business is jeopardized by the town’s revitalization. And Tracy is urged by the local PD to put her own skills to work on a new case: the brutal murder of a police officer’s wife and local reporter who was investigating a cold-case slaying of a young woman. As Tracy’s and Dan’s cases crisscross, Tracy’s trail becomes dangerous. It’s stirring up her own haunted past and a decades-old conspiracy in Cedar Grove that has erupted in murder. Getting to the truth is all that matters. But what’s Tracy willing to risk as a killer gets closer to her and threatens everyone she loves?
