An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling series.
What family secrets are behind two disappearances? Seattle detective Tracy Crosswhite is determined to uncover the truth in the latest installment of New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s heart-stopping series.
Returning from an extended leave in her hometown of Cedar Grove, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself reassigned to the Seattle PD’s cold case unit. As the protective mother of an infant daughter, Tracy is immediately drawn to her first file: the abduction of a five-year-old girl whose parents, embattled in a poisonous divorce, were once prime suspects.
While reconstructing the days leading up to the girl’s disappearance, Tracy is brought into an active investigation with former partner Kinsington Rowe. A young woman has vanished on an isolated jogging trail in North Seattle. Divided between two critical cases, Tracy has little to go on except the treacherous deceptions behind a broken marriage―and now, the secrets hiding behind the closed doors of a deceptively quiet middle-class neighborhood.
To find two missing persons, Tracy will have to follow more than clues, which are both long cold and unsettlingly fresh. Given her own traumatic past, Tracy must also follow her instincts―to whatever dark and dangerous places they may lead.

After an extended leave from the Seattle Police Department, Tracy finds herself assigned to cold case files. She digs in and a five-year old missing child case catches her attention. While pursuing this case, she is roped into helping her former partner in Violent Crimes with a current missing person case. A runner has gone missing in an area of Seattle that also has two missing prostitute cold cases. This gives Tracy the excuse to work the active case while not reneging on her duties to cold cases. The story then winds around all of these cases and the plot lines nicely dovetail into an intriguing story.
I love this series and the author's standalone novel The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell. All are well written with great characters and interesting plots. I highly recommend this series and this writer.
Thank you NetGalley and Thomas & Mercer for granting my wish for an Advance Reader's Copy of this book. I loved it.
Intriguing storyline with descriptive, emotional writing that draws the reader into each scene. Surprise twists at the Nd. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. The toxic leadership is something most can empathize with. Believable characters with distinct personalities and great banter. Thought-provoking and memorable dialogue.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.
Upon reflection, I think I see two issues I had during my initial reading. First, there is a lot of dialog and reflection about Tracy's recent transition to being a working mother. While this is indeed an important perspective and does affect how she is dealing with her co-workers and cases, it seemed to really bog down the early chapters of the book. The second factor is that more pages than usual seem to be spent with apparent antagonists, rather than tracking them down. I didn't like spending that much time with these creeps. Scanning through the book again, I don't think these are actually major flaws and probably had more to do with my reactions than the writing itself.
This book is definitely aimed at readers that are already following the adventures of Tracy Crosswhite. That doesn't mean a new reader will be lost. Mr. Dugoni is too talented a writer to let that happen. But I would recommend reading an earlier book in the series before picking up this one. You won't be disappointed either way.
Disclosure: Thank you to Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for providing a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
The ending is perfect.
Great characters, consistent across the whole series. The descriptions of Seattle, Clearly Elum & Yakima remind me of the place I lived for 20+ years. And the story is compelling, believable, and unnerving. There are also a few unexpected twists that make sense in the end.
I'm ready for the next book in the series. Write faster, RD, (But I know such carefully, completely crafted works take time, so I'll keep checking...)
This particular story is suspenseful, frightening and ended in a way that is positive without being contrived. It was the perfect read for this stressful, frightening period of existence we have endured during g the pandemic.

Getting straight to work reading through the files left by the former officer in charge Tracy is drawn to an unsolved missing child case just as her former partner asks for help on a suspected abduction. As she sifts through clues in both investigations Tracy is faced with dead ends and untruths which take time she doesn't have to unravel. With the weather worsening and office politics hindering her progress she has to wonder if either case will have a successful outcome.
Tracy Crosswhite is a relatable, likeable main protagonist who has matured and grown throughout this extremely popular and satisfying series. There is a comprehension of the problems Tracy has had and is now experiencing which show an understanding from the author of the differing effects of trauma on those who suffer life changing events. However chilling the crimes, and these are definitely that, the way the book reads is, as usual, sympathetic from the get go.
I was able to read an advanced copy of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the opinions expressed are my own. This is an excellent read which will leave you feeling a little better about the world we live in.
Having said that, I really enjoy Robert Dugoni’s books, and having read them all I have been looking forward to this one, and I wasn’t disappointed. Despite the foregoing, I couldn’t put it down until I’d finished it!
I do enjoy the realism of the characters; I’ve followed Tracy Crosswhite’s career from her Acadamy days and her first run-in with Nolasco and although her life experience has been far removed from my own, it has the ring of realism about it. Robert Dugoni’s books illustrate that it is possible to have realism without foul language and ‘without’ the bedroom door!
Anyone who enjoys police procedurals, with realistic characters, relationships and situations will enjoy this book.
Looking forward to Book 9. Another 5 stars from this happy reader.
