A Steep Price Reviews
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
Normally, I love Robert Dugoni’s Tracy Crosswhite books, and I can dive right in. Number six, A Steep Price, was a whole ‘nuther ball of wax for me. I did love it, for the most part, but it took a while for me to get into it. Why? For one thing, Detective Tracy Crosswhite starts out in court. She’s not even involved in the main case, which is the murder of a woman, a mother who’s fighting to organize her neighbors and her community to fight gangs and drug dealers. That sounded pretty nasty to me ...more
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
On the surface A Steep Price is a fine police procedural about Detective Tracy Crosswhite’s team working two entirely different cases. Tracy’s case is at the request of t Detective Katie Pryor, Missing Persons Squad, and involves the disappearance of a beautiful East Indian woman, Kavita Mukherjee. Tracy is hung up testifying in court, so Det. Kin Rowe is soon roped into the investigation. When Tracy finds Kavita's body, Tracy is determined to retain this case despite jurisdictional issues.
Tracy Crosswhite is pregnant and finishing up her testimony in court when she is called in to consult on a missing persons case by Detective Katie Pryor. She agrees with her friend that this case does not feel right. The missing young woman, Kavita Mukherjee, is not the typical missing person. Kavita is attending medical school and is estranged from her family due to not wanting an arranged marriage. When her body is found, her case becomes a murder investigation.
Kavita's murder is not the only ...more
A good step up from Book 5 (Close to Home), but still doesn't have the magic of the earlier novels.
There are 2 cases in this one, which divides the 4 members of the A team into 2 groups. The first group is Faz and Del who are investigating the death of a local activist who was against the drug and gun culture in the community. Tracey gets a call to help look for Kavita Mukherjee, an Indian woman who is currently a medical student and has been missing for a day and haven't been responding to call ...more
A STEEP PRICE is one of the best books I have read in this series. There was just something really engrossing about the mystery of the missing woman. I especially liked that the readers also got the missing woman's POV.
While Tracy is busy with the missing woman case is Vic Fazzio dealing with the murder of a local community activist. The investigations take a deadly turn and it could mean the end of Vic's career. Last, but not least is the fact that Tracy is pregnant and trying to hide it. She g ...more
