When Kurt Schill sees a hand among the seaweed, starfish and crabs in his illegal Puget Sound crab pot, he had no idea what his four thirty in the morning catch would unleash. Detective Tracy Crosswhite on the Seattle PD’s Violent Crimes Section answers the call and her first task is to identify the body and then the killer. The woman apprears to be someone who disappeared months ago on a hike up Mt. Rainier with her husband and he emerges as the likely suspect. The fact that the dead woman has had plastic surgery to mask her identity adds to the mystery and questions the validity of the story surrounding her disappearance. Tracy flashbacks to her sister's unsolved murder and is determined to find justice for Andrea and arrest the killer.
Full disclosure...I am a huge fan of the Tracy Crosswhite Series and I couldn't wait to read this book. I was not disappointed, every time I thought I had it figured out, there was a new twist and the suspense continued. Dugoni's strength is to weave a complicated tale of greed, lies and betrayal. Tracy is an uncompromising detective, haunted by her past, focused on justice, and the drive to solve this murder. I highly recommend this series and can't wait to see what happens next!
I received a copy from NetGalley for a review.
