Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite loves to tackle unsolved crimes, so when Klickitat County Sheriff Jenny Almond asks her to investigate a 40-year-old cold case that Jenny's late father had handled, Tracy is intrigued. The murder of her sister years ago weighs on Tracy. The killing was not only unresolved, it was Jenny's father's first case, and the detective feels she owes Jenny. Meanwhile, Tracy's team at the Seattle PD is also probing the death of Tim Collins, supposedly slain by his estranged wife when he broke into their house. But the inquiry keeps turning up inconsistencies in the allegedly straightforward incident. Dugoni's third "Tracy Crosswhite" novel (after Her Final Breath) continues his series's standard of excellence with superb plotting and skillful balancing of the two story lines. VERDICT New readers can enjoy this as a stand-alone; they and series fans will be captivated by the issues and foibles that drive Tracy and strengthen her resolve.
