New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni's acclaimed series continues as Tracy Crosswhite is thrown headlong into the path of a killer conspiracy.
While investigating the hit-and-run death of a young boy, Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite makes a startling discovery: the suspect is an active-duty serviceman at a local naval base. After a key piece of case evidence goes missing, he is cleared of charges in a military court. But Tracy knows she can't turn her back on this kind of injustice.
When she uncovers the driver's ties to a rash of recent heroin overdoses in the city, she realizes that this isn't just a case of the military protecting its own. It runs much deeper than that, and the accused wasn't acting alone. For Tracy, it's all hitting very close to home.
As Tracy moves closer to uncovering the truth behind this insidious conspiracy, she's putting herself in harm's way. And the only people she can rely on to make it out alive might be those she can no longer trust.

In this book we also get to know Del, one of Tracy's colleagues a lot better. He is dealing with the death of his niece due to a drug overdose.
A lot in this story and certainly quite a few twists.
This too was yet another story of intrigue and sadness. It brought several sinister plots to the forefront including coverups, death and drugs that plague society today and in the fast pace way he delivered it kept me swiping into the wee hours of the morning.
I did struggle through some of the legalese parts but found them interesting and informative. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that I’m just not into books with a Military theme but I also felt this meant I had to concentrate far more than his previous books.
That being said, as always, Dugoni has a great team and there is much detail and research given. He has delivered another well written, fast moving book. If you like NCIS you will love this book!!

I love the richness of the characters, they truly come alive in his writing and I'm hoping two of the newly introduced characters (Leah and Celia) will be regulars from now on - strong, interesting, intelligent women with intriguing backgrounds & sharp, witty personalities, similar to Tracy herself.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Dugoni has a real talent for writing about strong, interesting women without making them too intense or unrealistic - refreshing to read
We get to meet a couple of new characters in this tale among our set of regulars alongside Tracy. I liked Leah a great deal, though the nickname of Lee baffled me a bit. I wasn't sure what joke I'd missed there......maybe it's a play on Bruce Lee ?? Hopefully someone can translate that for me. Celia is another terrific addition, too.....what a nice lady she is. We also spent more time with another of Tracy's colleagues for a change than we did with her. There were some very amusing moments here and there as well that I noted. However, being an older reader I needed to get on Google to translate some of the texting acronyms used here. One of them, KKUT, I couldn't figure at all, even looking there.
There were a couple of sentences which I just thought were atrocious English in the way they were presented, which I just marked "Huh ?" in my Kindle notations...."Did you call the name of that therapist I left for you ?" and "I can tell you more later, when it's a little better time."
I spotted the odd error-corn and not corned written when he got it right every other time it was written, the same for parent's as opposed to parents'-again, written correctly aside from just the once. He wrote flog where I'd have used flood, salute and not salut (which I'm sure I referred to in a prior review of one of his books) and I'd write rollercoaster as the one word but that's all for my nitpicky stuff. Loved the ending here and look forward to the series' continuation.
Apart from that is was a great story with plenty of 'Red Herrings' to follow and this time the more personal side of some of the characters was developed which I like.
This book had me on the edge of my seat. Well worth the 5 stars
