Enhance your purchase
In this #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller, Tracy Crosswhite must first identify the victim to catch the killer.
When a woman's body is discovered submerged in a crab pot in the chilly waters of Puget Sound, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself with a tough case to untangle. Before they can identify the killer, Tracy and her colleagues on the Seattle PD's Violent Crimes Section must figure out who the victim is. Her autopsy, however, reveals she may have gone to great lengths to conceal her identity. So who was she running from?
After evidence surfaces that their Jane Doe may be a woman who suspiciously disappeared months earlier, Tracy is once again haunted by the memory of her sister's unsolved murder. Dredging up details from the woman's past leads to conflicting clues that only seem to muddy the investigation. As Tracy begins to uncover a twisted tale of brutal betrayal and desperate greed, she'll find herself risking everything to confront a killer who won't go down without a deadly fight. Once again, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni delivers a taut, riveting thriller in the fourth installment of his acclaimed Tracy Crosswhite series.
“Dugoni drills so deep into the troubled relationships among his characters that each new revelation shows them in a disturbing new light…an unholy tangle of crimes makes this his best book to date.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Dugoni has a gift for creating compelling characters and mysteries that seem straightforward, but his stories, like an onion, have many hidden layers. He also is able to capture the spirit and atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest, making the environment come alive.…another winner from Dugoni.” ―Associated Press
“All of Robert Dugoni's talents are once again firmly on display in The Trapped Girl, a blisteringly effective crime thriller…structured along classical lines drawn years ago by the likes of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. A fiendishly clever tale that colors its pages with crisp shades of postmodern noir.” ―Providence Journal
“Robert Dugoni, yet again, delivers an excellent read.…With many twists, turns, and jumps in the road traveled by the detective and her cohorts, this absolutely superb plot becomes more than just a little entertaining. The problem remains the same: Readers must now once again wait impatiently for the next book by Robert Dugoni to arrive.” ―Suspense Magazine
“The Trapped Girl is a blistering mystery, and some of Robert Dugoni’s best work to date.” ―The Real Book Spy
“Dugoni weaves an intricate and absorbing story that’s as hot as the unseasonable Seattle weather his detective battles through.” ―Authorlink

Despite the promising start and an exciting dénouement in "The Trapped Girl", I could not describe this book as a thriller, more a plodding whodunit. I acknowledge and respect Robert Dugoni as a NYT bestselling author but the description on Amazon’s website, “a taut, riveting thriller” just doesn’t cut it for me. There were just too many parts of the narrative sandwiched between the opening and closing parts of the story that had me drifting off to other things jockeying for position in my mind. "The Trapped Girl" is worth a read, but more for lovers of murder/mystery novels.

The hint at future "cold cases" wets my appetite and I hope not all the victims are young females, otherwise it would be a form of type casting that would wear very thin. A very enjoyable read, I have no hesitation in recommending it.
I couldn't make my mind up about the Jane Doe who features in this story. One minute she comes across as a victim you feel sorry for, then she'll say or do something completely out of character (from her diaries) and it makes you wonder. It's a book that totally keeps you on your toes and I made guesses throughout as to what I thought was going on......and as usual got most of them wrong !! Poor Tracy has to work on a lot of this case with a cop called Fields who is THE biggest dinosaur she's happened across, I think. A right sexist pig who needed slapping down hard perhaps thirty years before and he'd not have been such a dick now !!
I still get bothered in books based in America when they write like this-"You want me to come with ?"
I don't really understand why they talk like this and it smacks me in the face every time they do !! He used "salute" as opposed to "salut" when making toasts, too. The only time I spotted any punctuation was wrong was one missing comma in "My how the mighty have fallen" and that was it. Very good going indeed. The ending made me sniffy but it ended as I'd wanted it to. I'm looking forward to book 5 in the series.
