Her Final Breath (Tracy Crosswhite Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Tracy Crosswhite returns in the second book in the page-turning series by New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni.
Homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite has returned to the police force after the sensational retrial of her sister’s killer. Still scarred from that ordeal, Tracy is pulled into an investigation that threatens to end her career, if not her life.
A serial killer known as the Cowboy is killing young women in cheap motels in North Seattle. Even after a stalker leaves a menacing message for Crosswhite, suggesting the killer or a copycat could be targeting her personally, she is charged with bringing the murderer to justice. With clues scarce and more victims dying, Tracy realizes the key to solving the murders may lie in a decade-old homicide investigation that others, including her captain, Johnny Nolasco, would prefer to keep buried. With the Cowboy on the hunt, can Tracy find the evidence to stop him, or will she become his next victim?

The author did well in building suspense and having you guess until towards the end who the killer is.
I like having a female detective in stories and seeing how they solve crimes and deal with things that come their way. Once again, I had trouble figuring out who done it which is unusual for me and heightened the enjoyment factor of this book. I love when I really have to struggle to work through the clues.
The Tracy Crosswhite character is so well written that the reader feels like they're getting to know a friend as they read her harrowing journey to stop a killer. Rooting for the good guy is always a perfect place to be as a reader when an author writes a fabulous character. I found myself hating Tracy's boss so much I would yell at the novel when Nolasco would thwart Tracy's efforts to do her job. I especially love books that make me feel emotions strongly. Dugoni not only wrote a five star novel here, with a mystery that keeps you guessing but he also bloomed a fantastic character in Tracy Crosswhite. I can't wait to read the next in this series.
If you haven't read the first book that is okay I think this book works as a stand alone, but there are some things that happened in the first book you'll just have to accept as a given.
Thanks Robert, for entertaining me again!
The perseverance of her hunt for the serial killer was tenacious even with Nolasco's interference, and those moments with Dan were adorable. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
On to book three now with anticipation

Her Final Breath is a classic police procedural, with a delicately woven plot and carefully paced build-up to a dramatic conclusion that fairly races off the page. There are twists and turns aplenty, a bad-guy boss, and even a nice bit of love-interest to add a softer counterpoint to the tough stuff. Dugoni has a very easy writing style and develops a great plot without it being overly complex, meaning you can dip in and out of the book without losing track. His heroine, Tracy, is a highly likeable character, with many facets to her personality, who can be better understood if you’ve read the first book in this series - My Sister’s Grave. I look forward to following her adventures further.
Thanks for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. You can find more candid book reviews on my Amazon profile page.
Has to be 5 stars as I couldn't find any flaws in characterisation, plot, description or narrative... Possibly, if I'm clutching at straws there were lots of possible suspects & it made it difficult to remember who's who but that isn't a flaw in writing, just in my memory...
I'm aware this is book 2 in a lengthy series which I am very pleased about as I can't wait to keep reading about Tracy Crosswhite & colleagues... Enjoying it so much!
Can't wait to read book 3 and found out what happens to Nolasco. Will he be thrown off the force? I hope so. I have a feeling that Nolasco hasn't yet finished with trying to hurt Tracy.
5 stars from this happy reader.
