Book Review: The Trapped Girl

When a woman’s body is discovered submerged in a crab pot in the chilly waters of Puget Sound, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself with a tough case to untangle. Before they can identify the killer, Tracy and her colleagues on the Seattle PD’s Violent Crimes Section must figure out who the victim is. Her autopsy, however, reveals she may have gone to great lengths to conceal her identity. So who was she running from?

After evidence surfaces that their Jane Doe may be a woman who suspiciously disappeared months earlier, Tracy is once again haunted by the memory of her sister’s unsolved murder. Dredging up details from the woman’s past leads to conflicting clues that only seem to muddy the investigation. As Tracy begins to uncover a twisted tale of brutal betrayal and desperate greed, she’ll find herself risking everything to confront a killer who won’t go down without a deadly fight. Once again, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni delivers a taut, riveting thriller in the fourth installment of his acclaimed Tracy Crosswhite series.

Another home run from Robert Dugoni! This whole series have been fantastic and THE TRAPPED GIRL is no exception.

This book is set mainly in Seattle and I really appreciate Mr. Dugoni's knowledge of this area.  I am a local and through reading this book, I even found an attraction that I wasn't aware of.  I plan on checking out the lighthouse on Alki the next time I am in the city.  

This book, and series, is based on Tracy Crosswhite who is a Seattle Honicide detective.  And she sure come across some unusual cases.  And I have to admit that I really enjoy watching her solve those cases but even more than that, I have enjoyed watching Tracy grow and change throughout the series.  She has learned that she can depend on others, that friends can become a family and that she isn't too old or set in her ways for love.

I highly recommend this book and this series to anyone who enjoys mysteries and police procedural books that feature a kick ass heroine.  Who knows,  you might find a new place to check out in Seattle also. 

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