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.
Tracy Crosswhite, a forty-two year old detective with the Seattle Police Department in Violent Crimes, known as ‘The Professor’ (since before joining the police department she used to be a high school chemistry teacher). Tracy is known for her sharp-shooting skills. She grew up sports shooting with her younger sister Sarah. Twenty-years-ago is also when Sarah, disappeared after a State Championship.
Although Sarah’s body has never been found, a local man was arrested and convicted of the crime of the murder of Sarah Crosswhite. He refused to tell where he buried the body. But Tracy never gave up hope trying to find the body of her sister, so she could give her a proper burial. When the Sarah’s body surfaces, it makes for even more questions that are left unanswered. The problem is that some of the facts are just leading up to that the State just may have convicted the wrong man.
My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni is a legal thriller laced with police procedural novel. The character development in the novel is strong, making the reader attach easily to certain characters. The story has a well-written plot, with a twist that will have the reader’s adrenaline pumping. Robert Dugoni has the writing style of John Grisham. Normally I do not compare one author’s work with another, but his writing is just that good. I was so impressed by this book, I went to Amazon and purchased all Mr. Dugoni’s novels. I highly recommend this book.
