BOOK REVIEW: My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni


ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House—a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder—is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.

When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past—and open the door to deadly danger.

MY REVIEW:

This book was offered for free through the "Kindle First" program.  It seemed an appropriate pick for October, so I downloaded it and was immediately hooked.  It will be available on Amazon beginning November 1, 2014, but is currently available for pre-order.

Tracy Crosswhite is a homicide detective in Seattle.  She was drawn to the profession a few years after her life took a dramatic turn for the worst when her younger sister disappeared.  Tracy was never fully convinced that the man who was arrested for her sister's murder had received a fair trial. There were too many questions left unanswered. Tracy spent 20 years desperately trying to put the missing pieces together, until a body is found and Tracy has another chance to get to the bottom of the story once and for all. 

The story is dramatic and suspenseful.  It has the reader questioning many of the characters along with Tracy until the truth finally comes out in the end. If you like fiction - mystery/suspense, I highly recommend it. My only word of caution is to make sure you have plenty of time to read this book once you open it because you will not want to put it down!
