Book Review: In Her Tracks by Robert Dugoni

This is such an absolutely incredible series! I’m a longtime fan of Robert Dugoni, but somehow had never gotten around to the Tracy Crosswhite books. Once I became aware of them, the problem was that there were so many – and starting a new series by an author I love with numerous books meant I was going to be tied up reading all of those books until they were finished… And because of other review commitments, that was a tough commitment to make.

Then I saw that the eighth book was on NetGalley, and wished for it – and my wish was granted. I knew there was no way I could read book eight without any of the earlier books, so I did what I had long been wanting to do and started with book one. I worked my way through the series in record time…

This is an absolutely incredible series of books, populated by brilliantly articulated characters, intricate and detailed plot lines, and fascinating explorations of the human psyche and terrible things that people do to one another… This eighth book was brilliant. With the same style, verve, and eye for detail brought to all the other books, Dugoni has continued to develop Tracy Crosswhite as a woman growing into herself, first as a young woman recovering from a horrific incident in her family’s life, then as a detective, a wife, and a mother. Dugoni has done a masterful job creating a woman who is superhuman yet still believable and relatable. Crosswhite is the detective we all want looking after us.

Every book contains two major cases that are explored in parallel, and the cases in this eighth book were striking in their contrasts and yet strikingly similar at the same time. The pacing was spot on and the cases fascinating – and horrifying. The book was brilliant. The series is amazing and if you’re not familiar with it you should definitely start with book one and not stop until you’re caught up. Then you, like me, can start counting the days until the next book!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
