#17 My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni

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’ve done well with Kindle impulse buys. Hopefully this is a cracker! Blurb is sound and interesting. Paused at chapter 12, this is cracking, so many avenues of possibilities, I have so many theories!!!

Pretty great. I started reading last night (11/03/20) and finished it today. Was very driven to read and had no issues.

Tracy was a strong character, she exuded strong, powerful, and determined vibes. How she managed to stay sane over 20 years of suspicion and dead ends, is amazing. I found her drive for the truth particularly relatable. She was a good character, she wasn’t perfect, she understood how the world worked and acknowledged that her course of action might not get the results she wanted.

I love murder/thrillers that take place in small towns because the possibilities are so endless, and I find the author goes out of their way to make something memorable and unexpected.

I found this easy to visualise and I was so driven by what I was reading that I took in every detail available to me.

You’re probably getting sick of me and all my 5 star reviews, but I can’t help it if I’ve been on a winning streak with great plots! This was a complete impulse buy. It popped up on my Kindle recommendations pages and I thought it sounded ideal. I have the 2nd and 3rd books of this series already in my library and if I enjoy them as much as I enjoyed this, I’ll consider getting the series in paperback also.

I knew from the 5th chapter that this was something I was going to love. I just got into this story so quickly and was so hooked on the story and characters. I like that the past was visited first. So often, a main characters past or trauma isn’t visited until later in the series and that can be particularly jarring or seem forced/unnecessary. I think the concept worked very well here, and I certainty enjoyed it.
