I thoroughly enjoy Dugoni's books on Tracy Crosswhite. First, I love such a strong protagonist whether woman or man. I find it interesting that I consider Dugoni able to put himself into the mind of a woman who is more compassionate than a man (many times). But he does that quite well. There is a lot going on in this book. Tracy is pregnant and worried that her boss will find out and try to replace her. Faz's wife finds out that she has cancer, and Faz is fretting about her which means his mind isn't on doing smart things. Then the erstwhile boss decides to dump a new woman who is also Hispanic on everyone, and Tracy's instinctual brain is telling something funny is going on with the woman.
Tracy and Kins find a young woman who is East Indian in background was murdered in a park near the family home, and they need to figure out whether this was a stranger killing or whether family or close friends are involved. Faz and his partner are looking into a drive by shooting involving an activist mom by a local gang. Plus something funny is going on with this new woman cop, and Tracy needs to make a decision whether to come back to work after the baby.
Great summer reading or for a break from too much television or work!
