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:

My Sister’s Grave is the first work of author Robert Dugoni that I have read and I will say, I have found another author to put on my go-to list. This story pulled me in from the very beginning and didn’t let go until the last page.

Seattle PD homicide detective Tracey Crosswhite has been struggling with the disappearance of her younger sister since she last saw her, almost twenty years earlier. There had been an arrest but the nagging feeling that something just wasn’t quite right never left Tracey. She has dedicated her life to solving murders and her sister’s murder, she was certain, would be one of them. When she gets news that they recovered her sister’s remains, she knows she is so close to figuring out what really happened to her sister all those years ago. Tracey never suspected that she would uncover lies and deceit from the townspeople she grew up trusting. She also never suspected who she would find ultimately responsible for the crime that took her sister from her and ruined her family.

Wow. Just wow. This book was completely engrossing and I loved every aspect of the story. Tracey Crosswhite is beyond determined to solve that mystery that has haunted her for too many years to count. She is a smart woman and wants to look at every angle of things but she’s certain that the wrong man is behind bars. She ends up getting help from a childhood friend, and lawyer, and together they set off on one hell of a ride to reach the truth. They also find an attraction between themselves that builds into a great relationship. The story was fast-paced, easy to follow, and packed with suspense. I had no idea who to believe was responsible for Tracey’s sister’s disappearance. I couldn’t decide whom to trust and I went back and forth with my choice of the guilty party. Now, I won’t give anything away but I will say that the ending totally surprised me and I was a nervous wreck for more than a few pages. I loved it!

With well-written characters and a suspenseful mystery, My Sister’s Grave was a white knuckled ride that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Thank you, Mr. Dugoni, for a fantastic read!
