My Sister’s Grave My Sister’s Grave is the first book in Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni. The book introduces the reader to Seattle based homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite. Two decades earlier, her younger sister, Sarah, who was 18 years, then vanished without a trace after the two had participated in shooting range competition.

As Tracy took off to dinner with her love, Sarah drove home in the rain never to be seen again. The two sisters had sisters had been great friends and Tracy has never moved on or forgiven herself for allowing her younger sister to drive home alone in the rain.

Twenty years later, the pain of losing her sister without a goodbye still haunts her and has resulted to Tracy giving up her professional job as a teacher to become a homicide detective. A formerly convicted rapist Edmund House was arrested and charged of Sarah’s murder, mainly on the basis of circumstantial evidence and also evidence provided by the local sheriff who confessed that Edmund had confessed to murdering Sarah, even though there was no witness or tape recording to backup the sheriff’s allegations.

However, Tracy has never been convinced of Edmund’s guilt and has continued investigating into the case in an attempt to satisfy her instincts of the fact that justice was either done or not. As the story opens up, Sarah remains are finally discovered by two hunters in a thickly dense wooded area that was previously covered by a lake.

The shocking discovery of the body sparks more suspicions and raises even more questions about the case against Edmund and makes Tracy more determined to see the person responsible for her younger sister’s death pay the ultimate price. Her efforts to seek justice will antagonize a good number of people in the sleepy town where she was born and raised and where the murder crime occurred.

Her investigations will also place her life and that of those she loves in a considerable amount of jeopardy. My Sister’s Grave is a brilliant start to a promising series and a compelling story that blends the best elements of legal thriller with that of police procedural.

Tracy Crosswhite is a very engaging heroine and the main story is fast paced such that it’s almost impossible to put the book down once you get going. Tracy switches careers from a simple chemistry teacher to a homicide detective.

Her experimental background knowledge leaves an unsettled feeling regarding how the murder case was handled by the cops. Even though Edmund was convicted of the murder, Tracy’s instincts tell her that something’s not right. She is convinced that there was foul play and more than what meets the eye.

The memory of it all is killing her mind, soul and heart and the only road that leads to peace is to tread down the memory’s pathway once again. Robert Dugoni creates his protagonist as an witty, no nonsense analytical reasoning heroine. And there is a bonus to the story.

The author knows each route around a courtroom and the dialogue in the story reflects precisely that. He delves deeper into the corner untapped and hidden in the shadows. His cast is beautifully developed. There’s tons of deep-seeded emotion that doesn’t leave sticky footprints behind.

The Eighth Sister is the debut novel in Charles Jenkins series by Robert Dugoni. We are introduced to Charles Jenkins a lad in his early sixties. His beloved wife is expecting their second child and his security firm is facing bankruptcy because of his vendors not paying the bills on time. Even though he gets some relief reading Harry Potter to his son at night, the thoughts about his financial problems trouble him. When Carl Emerson contacts him, Charlie is fascinated.

He walked away from the CIA four decades ago, but when Emerson presents him with an assignment and a way to make some quick cash, Charlie can’t refuse. Charlie speaks fluent Russian, after working with the KGB and this makes him the perfect man to gather intelligence for this undercover mission.

Charlie soon finds himself in Russia in a cat and mouse game trying to uncover the identity of the 8th sister, the person responsible for the murder of several Russian spies. Soon things become so intense and Charlie past experience in the CIA is put to test.

Through this book, Robert Dugoni shares about his family, how he was often followed on suspicions that he was a spy. He also shares a discussion he had with Kristin Hannah and several other persons who shared their lives with him. There’s a lot going on in this novel right from the first page to the last.

    Loved the Extraordinary life of Sam Hell. Going to bookstore to buy at least a couple more of your books today. Anyone who knows me would be surprised to hear me say, I have lived an extraordinary life! You made me realize that, by golly, I have. I praise God for your talent.

    I loved the Tracy Crosswhite series!! I’m new to reading books on kindle (had cataract surgery and now have to wear reading glasses and for some reason still hard to see print on actual books) and the entire series was wonderful! Can’t wait for the next one!

  6. Susan Lilienthal Schoenleber: 3 years ago

    Will there be a book 9 in the Tracy crosswhite series.

    • Graeme: 3 years ago

      Most likely yes. There is one currently listed on Amazon called What She Found with a publication date of November 2022. We haven’t added it to the site yet as that will likely change.

    I’m reading Close to Home. Would like to give you a little feedback. This is my fourth Tracy Crosswhite novel. Noticed a tone in this one that didn’t sound like you, to me.
