"A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions."

First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Dugoni, and Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.
Dugoni returns with the third novel in the Crosswhite series, taking a different spin from the previous series writing. While the team lands a homicide with a strong self-defence component, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself lured to assist a friend who has been given a cold case by her late father. In the autu ...more
The third in this series about a female homicide detective in Seattle. I have read these books in order and I can say they are all excellent novels and if anything, are getting better as Robert Dugoni becomes more at ease with his well-drawn characters.
There are cold cases which previous stories have shown Detective Tracy Crosswhite has a skill in re-visiting and there are others in cryogenic stasis. When her friend asks her to take a fresh look at the first investigation her Dad had in his care ...more

For 40 years Kimi Kanakset's death was labelled suicide. But when her father dies, Jenny discovers amongst his possessions the original file on the case. A file classed in the system as having been destroyed.
Jenny asks her friend and police academy classmate Tracy Crosswhite for help as what she has read has perturbed her. After reading the file Tracy agrees and sets about uncovering a long buried truth.
This is my first Robert Dugoni. I found the plot interesting, but not gripping in an 'omg I j ...more
I am really enjoying the Seattle setting of this series, and Dugoni has drawn some sympathetic characters in the main story of the mysterious decades-old death of Kimi Kanasket.
The current-day subplot felt a little tacked-on, though it certainly has some twists of its own.
This is an interesting book and I recommend it to all who like Dugoni's books, Seattle/West Coast settings, or mysteries generally.
In The Clearing es el tercer libro de la saga Tracy Crosswhite y continua teniendo como protagonista a la detective de homicidios, Tracy.
Hay sagas que no puedes parar de leer porque sus personajes son fantasticos, otras por las historias que narran, las cuales son tan entretenidas que nunca te aburres y hay otras sagas que no puedes dejar debido a que la lectura siempre se te hace corta y deseas saber mas, esta serie en concreto cumple con todo lo anterior, cosa que me tomo un poco por sorpresa, ...more
3.5 stars. This was two cases, one current and one a cold case. The cold case was far more interesting than the contemporary one. I did guess how the story would pan out, which is usually not the case with me. In fact I thought it was going to be more complicated than it was! An enjoyable and easy read.
