Book Review: My Sister's Grave

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.

I have always enjoyed thrillers featuring strong women and Detective Tracy Crosswhite is definitely that.  MY SISTER'S GRAVE flashes between the present and her memories of herself and her sister so it's easy to tell that she has always had a lot of inner resolve.  When they finally find Sarah's body, Tracy has the evidence that she needs to start the process of discovering just who the real killer was.

I was very impressed by this book.  The copy that I was given to review was unedited so there were a few errors which I am sure didn't make it into the finished version but they weren't content errors that always drive me insane in a thriller.  And believe me, I was looking for them as this book is set in Washington where I live and I am very familiar with the areas that Mr. Dugoni mentioned.  

I also found the characters to be realistically portrayed with all of their flaws.  The dialogue was sharp, witty and at times humorous.  Oh and let's not forget the Rex and Sherlock, two dogs that make quite the appearance in the story.  

I do recommend MY SISTER'S GRAVE to any of my readers who enjoy a good, tight thriller with several unexpected twists and turns.  You are sure to enjoy this book.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
