New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s thrilling series continues as Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite is plunged into a case of family secrets and murder…

“Another outstanding novel from one of the best crime writers in the business.” —Associated Press

Called in to consult after a young woman disappears, Tracy Crosswhite has the uneasy feeling that this is no ordinary missing-persons case. When the body turns up in an abandoned well, Tracy’s suspicions are confirmed. Estranged from her family, the victim had balked at an arranged marriage and had planned to attend graduate school. But someone cut her dreams short.

Solving the mystery behind the murder isn’t Tracy’s only challenge. The detective is keeping a secret of her own: she’s pregnant. And now her biggest fear seems to be coming true when a new detective arrives to replace her. Meanwhile, Tracy’s colleague Vic Fazzio is about to take a fall after his investigation into the murder of a local community activist turns violent and leaves an invaluable witness dead.

Two careers are on the line. And when more deadly secrets emerge, jobs might not be the only things at risk.

🏆 A Definite Winner! 🏆
👮‍♀️ If you aren't reading Robert Dugoni’s Tracy Crosswhite series - you should be. 🚓

In book 6 of the series, A Steep Price , Tracy Crosswhite is pregnant (but hasn't announced it at the precinct) and becomes involved in the missing persons case of a young Indian woman who is estranged from her family. Kavita Mukherjee resisted her family’s pressures to submit to an arranged marriage. I’ll be honest and say that storyline was rather predictable for me, based on the emphasis placed on tradition and familial responsibilities.
There was a second, concurrent storyline involving Faz and Del investigating the murder of a local activist. This one was definitely my favorite case of the book. Dugoni once again manages to expertly inject his character’s lives into the framework of the story. I am so invested in these characters. Faz & his wife Vera’s emphasis in this story was touching. I adore their relationship and was touched by their storyline.
As always, there was A LOT going on in the book - gang violence, arranged marriages, escorts, online dating, technology being used for tracking, pregnant working moms, cancer. I might not even have listed it all. There always are multiple issues in these books. Yet, Dugoni always finds a way to weave it all together. It never feels overwhelming. This series might be a crime procedural but honestly, for me the crimes are secondary (although Dugoni definitely does his homework in that regard & there are always unforeseen twists & turns). What keeps me coming back are the characters! I feel like I know them. Reading these books feels like settling in for a visit with old friends who I can’t wait to catch up with. 4 satisfyingly, content stars for A Steep Price 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Thank you to NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and Robert Dugoni for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you have not yet discovered Tracey Crosswhite and her team you really need to jump on that train...but don't start with this one. Go back and start with book one and work your way up to this -0 book 6 in such a fantastic series. I always know when I start one of these books that I am in for a treat... and definitely not disappointed with book 6.
This one is a bit different with the team working different cases. Tracey is pregnant (and hiding it) and giving evidence in court. The rest of her team are called to a shooting in a local park. Tracey is then called by a friend in missing persons to help to locate a missing woman.
Thanks to Thomas and Mercer and Netgalley for an advanced copy of this book to read and enjoy in exchange for my honest opinions.

Tracy Crosswhite Series, book 6.
Tracy Crosswhite is called in to consult after a young woman disappears and she has the uneasy feeling that this is no ordinary missing case. The body turns up in an abandoned well and Tracy's suspicions are confirmed. Estranged from her family, the victim had balked at an arranged marriage and had planned to to attend graduate school. Solving the mystery behind the murder isn't Tracy's only challenge.
There are two cases occurring in this book. The first is the. murder of a local activist. The second is about a missing young woman called Kavita Mukherjee, who is estranged from her family. Tracy is now married and expecting her first baby. There are some really good twists in these tense storylines. As always, it's a pleasure to read Tracy Crosswhite and her A Team as they investigate. This book can be read as a standalone but this is far too good a series to miss out on.
I would like to thank NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and the Robert Dugoni for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

In my little world of books, not much makes me happier than finding a dependably enjoyable series. And this one, featuring Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite, fills that description - I look forward to reading each installment knowing I won't be disappointed. This book, the 6th in the series, is no exception (and to that end, many thanks to the publisher, via NetGalley, for the opportunity to read an advance review copy).
Tracy, now married to Dan, an attorney, is expecting a baby. She's been keeping it a secret except for her partner, Kinsington Rowe (and well, her husband, of course). So when she comes back to the office after a day in court providing testimony to find a new female detective sitting at her desk, she's perplexed to say the least. When the woman offers no real apologies for taking over the spot - and asks Tracy about her pregnancy - Tracy wavers between fighting mad and concerned about her job.
All that takes a back seat, though, when a friend calls to report a missing woman. Nothing is official - the woman, who is from a traditional Indian family from whom she is for the most part estranged, hasn't been gone long and she's a competent adult - but concerns quickly begin to suggest foul play. Missing persons cases aren't in Tracy's bailiwick, but she convinces her boss to let her have a go at it.
As this plays out, Tracy's co-workers Del Castigliano and "Faz" Fazzio run to a shooting in a drug-infested part of town; the victim has been vocal about the need to clean the neighborhood swamp, so there's a good chance she was murdered simply to shut her up. Del and Faz will work the case as best they can, but the waters get harder to navigate when Faz gets some bad news on his home front that weighs heavily on his mind.
The investigations bring the usual excitement and twists (although I'm proud to say I guess one correctly). But this book pokes a number of emotional hot buttons as well, such as arranged marriages and other Indian traditions, working women and pregnancy, prostitution and adult "dating" websites and dealing with life-threatening illness. Collectively, it creates an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable reading experience. Well done once again!

A STEEP PRICE is one of the best books I have read in this series. There was just something really engrossing about the mystery of the missing woman. I especially liked that the readers also got the missing woman's POV.
While Tracy is busy with the missing woman case is Vic Fazzio dealing with the murder of a local community activist. The investigations take a deadly turn and it could mean the end of Vic's career. Last, but not least is the fact that Tracy is pregnant and trying to hide it. She gets pretty pissed off when a new female cop arrives takes one look at Tracy and sees that she's pregnant. Could this mean that someone higher up knows about Tracy's condition and is planning on replacing her?
A STEEP PRICE is an engrossing new book in the Tracy Crosswhite series. I especially enjoyed the personal stuff in this book. It really made me feel for the characters as they both have to deal with police business as well as personal problems. This book really hit the spot for me and I can't wait to read the next one!
I want to thank Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!
