A Steep Price (Tracy Crosswhite #6) Reviews
We again join Tracy Crosswhite and her fellow homicide detectives in Seattle, WA. There is much change happening, Tracy is pregnant and their fifth wheel Ron has joined a new squad and a new detective has joined A squad from Los Angeles who makes everyone suspicious.
The two main cases of the story are a murdered community activist and a missing young woman of Indian descent who was preparing for medical school. Both cases are full of twists and turns and are an examination of cultures; one the f ...more
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 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
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
First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Dugoni, and Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.
Presenting yet another stellar novel in the Tracy Crosswhite series, Robert Dugoni has not disappointed his fans whatsoever. While trying to come to terms with her pregnancy, Detective Tracy Crosswhite has yet to tell anyone, save her husband and partner, Kinsington Rowe. An added stress befalls Cross ...more
Another Tracy Crosswhite winner! Robert Dugoni’s series never disappoints.
In book 6 of the series, A Steep Price , Tracy Crosswhite is pregnant (and hiding it at work) and becomes involved in a missing persons case of a young Indian woman who is estranged from her family. Kavita Mukherjee resisted her family’s pressures to submit to an arranged marriage. I’ll be honest and say that storyline was rather predictable for me, based on the emphasis placed on tradition and familial responsibilities ...more
Many thanks to NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer, and Robert Dugoni for the opportunity to read and review his latest Tracy Crosswhite novel - loved it! Reading this book was like getting reacquainted with old friends (well, okay, if your friends are Violent Crime detectives!). You definitely need to read this entire series but even if you haven't, you could easily enjoy this book as a stand alone.
This book is basically two mysteries in one. Tracy is drawn into a missing person case of a young Indi ...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
