An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestseller.
“Tracy Crosswhite is one of the best protagonists in the realm of crime fiction today, and there is nothing cold about A Cold Trail.” ―Associated Press
In New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s riveting series, Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite returns home to a brutal murder and her haunted past.
The last time homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite was in Cedar Grove, it was to see her sister’s killer put behind bars. Now she’s returned for a respite and the chance to put her life back in order for herself, her attorney husband, Dan, and their new daughter. But tragic memories soon prove impossible to escape.
Dan is drawn into representing a local merchant whose business is jeopardized by the town’s revitalization. And Tracy is urged by the local PD to put her own skills to work on a new case: the brutal murder of a police officer’s wife and local reporter who was investigating a cold-case slaying of a young woman. As Tracy’s and Dan’s cases crisscross, Tracy’s trail becomes dangerous. It’s stirring up her own haunted past and a decades-old conspiracy in Cedar Grove that has erupted in murder. Getting to the truth is all that matters. But what’s Tracy willing to risk as a killer gets closer to her and threatens everyone she loves?
“Dugoni blends the best elements of a classic small town mystery with a legal thriller to craft a compelling tale. His characters and vivid setting drop the reader right into the emotional heart of the story. Tracy Crosswhite is one of the best protagonists in the realm of crime fiction today, and there is nothing cold about A Cold Trail.” ―Associated Press
“Crime writing of the absolute highest order, illustrating that Dugoni is every bit the equal of Lisa Gardner and Harlan Coben when it comes to psychological suspense. Call A Cold Trail an angst-riddled, contemplative tale, or just call it flat-out great.” ―Providence Journal
“Dugoni can truly do it all, and A Cold Trail is him at the height of his talents.” ―Bookreporter
“Dugoni’s formidable writing talent comes to the fore again in a nerve-twisting tale set in the snowbound Pacific Northwest. A Cold Trail hosts skillfully drawn characters with complex relationships and hidden motives and will leave the reader guessing to the end.” ―Authorlink
“Known for his thrilling detective series, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni continues to deliver in the Tracy Crosswhite series. Promising to be intense, emotional, and fierce, this is a fast-paced story any crime fan can sink into.” ―Independent Voice Newspaper
Praise for The Tracy Crosswhite Series and Robert Dugoni:

“Dugoni breathes life into the police procedural like never before. Put the Tracy Crosswhite series…on your ‘must read’ list!” ―Suspense Magazine

Tracy, Dan and 8 week old Daniella return home while their new place is being renovated. It doesn't take long before Tracy's old boss Ron hooks her into helping out how 3 murders might be connected as things don't add up, it causes issues as Tracy should be on maternity leave but she just can't say NO, I found her to be selfish wanting her cake and eating it to, I could understand Dan having concerns as their daughter is so young and the investigation could lead to Tracy being a target. Sometimes it just isn't the obvious and that's what I loved about this book.

I really liked his dedication in this one and also the way he fleshed out his friend some more at the end as well. His loss is clearly ours, too. I very much liked the new character Therese. I was less than impressed with Chief Calloway, though, and some of his behaviour. At one point we had Tracy go to interview a prior mayor, who then told her he'd "let Gary know we spoke" apropos of goodness' knows what.....I didn't get why he needed to let Gary know at all !!
There were odd mistakes in this one, too. They visited a restaurant one night and were handed menus upon arrival and then again a few minutes later when water was served, he wrote knit and not knitted, born not borne, there were the odd apostrophe mistakes and missing punctuation here and there but nothing too often, thankfully.
I'll look forward to the next story in the series though I preordered this one so now have quite a wait, I expect.
Lots to love & lots to look forward to in the next book, glad the series is going strong
