    This is the latest in the Tracy Crosswhite series set in Seattle, and once again the author enters new and interesting territory, albeit in a slightly tongue in cheek manner with his references to the film A Few Good Men and the aspects that takes in the military in the Navy The are two main threads in the novel that begins with a hit and run that turns out to be so much and the increasing spate of fatal heroin ODs in the city Tracy and her team work for the SPD in the Violent Crimes Section.Tr [...]

    Anticipate your opponent s moves and be prepared to counter.Tracy Crosswhite and her band of fellow detectives track every motion and every exhale They work the Violent Crimes Section of Seattle with the challenging tiers of well honed analytical skills But this set of wirey incidents are proving to be quite the tangletangled because some of this is personal.D Andre Miller, an energetic twelve year old African American boy, is hitting the sidewalk at a face pace He just slammed the door on hours [...]

    ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley.4.5 stars This is another great book in the Tracy Crosswhite series The book starts with the investigation of a hit and run death of a young kid The victim is an African American boy and the case instantly puts the black community on edge I like how Robert Dugoni writes about current political issues in his books He writes about how the murders in the black community have not gotten the justice that they have deserved.S [...]

    Whenever I continue with a series, I have concerns Will I continue to connect with the characters as they grow and change Will things become stale Will I have a hard time recalling their history I m happy that the Tracy Crosswhite series continues to work for me This book is a bit different, having shades of a courtroom drama and involving the U.S Navy While sometimes the information can become overwhelming, I really feel like this book was well thought out and extremely well researched It intro [...]

    Whenever I finish a good book, I like to read the author s acknowledgements, particularly when they speak about what led them to write that particular book I am going to quote from Robert Dugoni s acknowledgements at the end of Close to Home because he has something very relevant to say, and I learned a lot about the Heroin problem Let s just say he blew a few of my ill conceived notions out of the water In the year prior to writing Close to Home, I read of multiple students at a local high scho [...]

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Robert Dugoni, and Thomas Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.Adding another explosive novel to the Tracy Crosswhite series, Robert Dugoni has answered the call of his fans to create another superior story Pulled from the headlines, Dugoni draws on some heart wrenching topics to add depth to this fifth novel After young D Andre Miller is struck and killed in a hit and r [...]

    I have a confession to make Neither the cover nor the blurb describing the contents of Robert Dugoni s Close to Home really enticed me The thought of a hit and run death involving a serviceman and a potential military trial, possible ties to heroin traffickingI don t know, the idea just didn t really grab me But it s Dugoni, and it s Tracy Crosswhite, so what did I have to lose Wise choice I am so thankful to NetGalley, Thomas Mercer, and the author for the opportunity to read the electronic ver [...]

    This is the fifth in the Tracy Crosswhite series and I m pleased to say that it s as strong as its predecessor I was slow to appreciate this series I was ok with the early books but not overwhelmed I liked the fourth book much and this one as well I love the interaction between the team Their personal lives had as much bearing on my enjoyment as the actual case being investigated Here, Tracy is pursuing getting pregnant in her early 40s and Kins is readying himself for hip replacement The plot [...]

    This is my third Robert Dugoni novel and second Tracy Crosswhite book There s something about this mans writing style that I love A mixture of descriptive and factual detail along with great character development, Close To Home continues in this vein and delivers in spades The book starts with Tracy investigating the hit and run killing of a young boy in her home town of Seattle Her chief suspect turns out to be a service man at a local navel base However when a crucial piece of evidence goes mi [...]

    Five books into this series, and it s still exciting to spend time with Tracy Crosswhite and her team In every book, there is growth in the characters Tracy and Dan are as strong as ever and want to start a family Kins has hip replacement surgery It s Del who gets to shine in this book.There are two storylines One starts with the hit and run death of a young basketball player Tracy s investigation leads to the local naval base where JAG lawyers take over jurisdiction The other has Faz and Del ba [...]

    I do love this series The characters are great and the storylines are different This book starts off with a hit and run killing a 12 year old boy but it twists and turns and becomes so much I always look forward to the next Tracey Crosswhite book i hope we don t have to wait too long for book 6 Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Thomas and Mercer for a copy of this book to read and review

    Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswaite almost takes a backseat in this police procedural with two major storylines In the first, Tracy and Kins are called to investigate the hit and run death of a young boy The victim is an African American boy and there is tremendous amount of interest and scrutiny from the black community Tracy and Kins soon make an arrest but since the suspect is in the Navy, the Navy asserts prosecutorial control and the case is transferred to them To the black communit [...]

    Once again Dugoni has switched it up for his latest instalment in the Tracy Crosswhite series Personally, I love that he takes each new book in a slightly different direction, not just with the characters but with the overarching style too This one was a mix between an episode of Law and Order and A Few Good Men, something I d been thinking since the early on in the book and which made me laugh out loud when the author actually name drops that film, clearly well aware of what the readers will be [...]

    I had never heard of Robert Dugoni until I received an Arc of his book The Trapped Girl I loved that book, btw and thought to myself, why have I not heard of this Author before Needless to say, when I saw there was another ARC out in the same series, I just had to read it One of the things I enjoy most about his writing is that he doesn t spoon feed the reader anything He lays out his story in an intelligent fashion, there will be plot twists and reveals and all seem plausible and believable He [...]

    Close to Home is the fifth installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series While I liked the previous book The Trapped Girl better, Close to Home is still a good addition to the series Drug trafficking seems to be the crime du jour these days, and heroin is the drug at issue in this book The suspect is an active serviceman at the local Navy base, and the issue of jurisdiction and the handling of the crime as a result was very interesting There was a twist at the end that I felt might be coming but li [...]

    If I m completely honest, this would be in the 3.75 star range And, that s only because it took me half the book to care about the plot.This is my least favorite Tracy Crosswhite book The subject matter was something I hardly cared about Which is mainly the drugs angle Tracy gets involved after a hit and run on a 12 year old boy happens Meanwhile, Del another detective is investigating the overdose of his niece I did like the fact that we got of a story on other characters lives, but, once aga [...]

    This is probably my second favorite book in the series so far after the first book It covers the tough topic of the heroin epidemic and seems very well researched and believable We also spend time with Del in this book, which I enjoyed as I find him a much engaging character than Kins And of course Tracy gets into a stupid situation where her life is in danger, but she comes out of it fine as always, so I look forward to reading book number six.

    Another great book in the Tracy Crosswhite series It can also be read as a stand alone There are actually 2 investigations going on in this book Tracey is investigating a hit and run where a 12 year old boy was killed She discovers that the car belongs to an active duty serviceman at a local naval base After a key piece of case evidence goes missing, he is released without going to trial But Tracey can t forget about justice for the 12 year old boy Meanwhile her team members, Del and Faz, invest [...]

    Picking up the latest book in this series has become an annual event I look forward to Dugoni consistently delivers stories that combine clever, tightly plotted suspense with a great cast of characters this one is no different.The gang from Seattle PD s Violent Crimes Section is back Tracy Crosswhite partner Kinsington Rowe are initially mystified when they re assigned to a fatal hit run But when their investigation points to an employee at a local Navy base, things get complicated Meanwhile, De [...]

    A thoughtful and measured crime thriller from the wonderful Robert Dugoni This is a police procedural set in Seattle and focusing on the career of Tracy Crosswhite and the cops in her small team This is the fifth in this exceptional series and is a refreshing change down from previous novels.The focus of the investigation is centred upon a hit and run victim Meanwhile a separate plot leads to Del looking into the death of his niece from a heroin overdose He supports his broken sister and minds h [...]

    It took a little while but I did get really invested in this story It is really two stories that eventually become one Tracy Crosswhite is investigating the hit run death of a 12 year old African American boy as he was walking home after playing basketball She is flying solo for most of this as Kins is off having hip surgery Meanwhile, after Del s niece Allie dies of a heroin overdose, he and Faz are looking into who supplied her with the drugs This heroin was very pure and there has been a spik [...]

    In my opinion, the weakest novel in the Tracy Crosswhite seriesThere are 2 investigations under way in Close to Home The first one is about a boy who is killed after a hit and run The suspect of the hit and run is an active duty serviceman located at the nearby naval base The navy becomes involved in clearing the name of the serviceman through a court investigation During the trial a key piece of evidence is found to be missing The second part of the novel is solving the death of Del s niece, wh [...]

    Dead Men Tell No Tales.This is book 5 in the Tracy Crosswhite series I have read the 4 prior stories but I think you could read it as a stand alone Tracy is a Seattle PD Violent Crimes Detective, she is over 40 I often use this phrase, but this plot could be ripped from the headlines we have seemingly unrelated stories that collide in a horrible way.Another of the SPDVC detectives is mourning the heroin over dose death of his 17 year old niece The author takes us inside the family to see how thi [...]

    Not my favorite Tracy book, but still readable For me, this had a lot explanations and that made it less enjoyable Mr Dugoni felt the need to explain all the Naval acronyms, the information on the drugs etc Rightly so, but still took away the enjoyment, at times, I was bored This one deals with drugs and unfortunately, that isn t my favorite subject I guess I prefer my detective stories to deal with murder etc go figure I liked getting backstory on Del, but Tracy seemed to be missing a lot in [...]

    Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read an early copy of the newest Robert Dugoni novel, Close to Home My two cents read it People in these homes weren t supposed to have sons and daughters hooked on heroin A hit and run investigation involving an active duty Navy serviceman unravels into drug running and a conspiracy that no one, including Tracey Crosswhite could have expected What I liked most is how intertwined each characters stories become, all centered around the opioid crisis in Am [...]

    In the fifth book of Robert Dugoni s excellent police procedural series featuring homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite, Tracy is assigned to investigate the hit and run death of a young teenager When the prime suspect is identified as an active duty Navy serviceman, the Navy takes over the investigation Meanwhile, Del Castigliano, one of the members of her team, is on the hunt for a drug dealer who sold his niece a fatal dose of heroin Dugoni provides a knowing and compassion portrait of the effe [...]

    I was not sure that I would like this book or not I have felt that the spark has gone out of this series while reading the last couple of books, and the one before this one was a real struggle to finish However, I decided to give this series one chance since I did like the first book very much.So, how was it To be honest, did I struggle at first with the book The story did feel better than in the previous book, but I was several times mentally debating if I should stop reading or not since the [...]

    I would rate this really as 3.5 stars as this was my least favorite Tracy Crosswhite book It involves the death of a young 12 year old African American boy The car is traced to a Naval employee who reported it stolen hours before the accident Extra care is taken because of the current political situation and a struggle breaks out who has control on the investigation, the Seattle Police Department or the Navy Meanwhile the Seattle police department has its hands full with a number of heroin overd [...]
