    • Abstract:
      Summary: Seattle police officer Tracy Crosswhite lost her sister Sarah over 20 years ago, and she has never forgiven herself. With no corpse discovered, there was still enough evidence to convict the man thought responsible for Sarah's disappearance. Now a body has been found and Tracy learns the remains are of her sister. Tracy has had her doubts about the guilt of the man behind bars, and she's absolutely sure there is a murderer still loose.

Tracy's younger sister has disappeared, and eventually everyone's worst fears are confirmed. The girl was kidnapped and killed. A local psycho is caught, tried, and put in his cage, but the horror resonates. Tracy's father takes his own life. Tracy quits her job as high-school science teacher and becomes a cop. This conventional opening could lead readers to think they're watching an old pro going through the motions. They'd be wrong. As a cop, Tracy has access to detectives' files and court transcripts and notices discrepancies. Soon she's leading an effort to free her sister's convicted killer, and we have the cops and lawyers who worked on the case muttering mysteriously that "everything is about to come out." Tracy gets cryptic warnings about leaving the past alone. Somebody fires a shotgun through her lawyer's window. Yes, a conspiracy is revealed, but it's an unexpected one, as moving as it is startling, and it's about now that the author ramps up the tension. The ending is violent, suspenseful, even touching. A nice surprise for thriller fans. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2014 September #1

Dugoni's latest novel (The Conviction; Murder One) combines the best of a police procedural with a legal thriller, and the end result is outstanding. Seattle police officer Tracy Crosswhite lost her sister Sarah over 20 years ago, and she has never forgiven herself. With no corpse discovered, there was still enough evidence to convict the man thought responsible for Sarah's disappearance. Now a body has been found and Tracy learns the remains are of her sister. Tracy has had her doubts about the guilt of the man behind bars, and she's absolutely sure there is a murderer still loose. Can she get a new trial to free an innocent man and also find out the truth? VERDICT Dugoni continues to deliver emotional and gut-wrenching, character-driven suspense stories that will resonate with any fan of the thriller genre. The author's series protagonist lawyer David Sloane is nowhere to be found, but readers will not care. In fact, they will eagerly await another story featuring Tracy Crosswhite.—Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L.

Expert pacing saves the day in this standalone novel from Dugoni (The Conviction) starring Det. Tracy Crosswhite, a Seattle policewoman obsessed with solving the supposedly closed case of her sister Sarah's disappearance. When the young woman's remains are finally discovered, Tracy returns to her hometown of Cedar Grove, Wash., in the Cascade Mountains. She is determined to reevaluate the evidence that sent suspicious local man Edmund House to prison for Sarah's rape and murder 20 years before. Dan O'Leary, one of Tracy's childhood friends who is now an outstanding courtroom lawyer (and virile but sensitive stud), assists her in obtaining a hearing to free Edmund and reopen the case. The plot elements may not be exactly fresh, but Dugoni does a superior job of positioning them for maximum impact, especially in a climactic scene set in an abandoned mine during a blizzard—which is melodramatic but nevertheless effective. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Oct.)
