Close to Home (Tracy Crosswhite, #5) by Robert Dugoni

While investigating the hit-and-run death of a young boy, Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite makes a startling discovery: the suspect is an active-duty serviceman at a local naval base. After a key piece of case evidence goes missing, he is cleared of charges in a military court. But Tracy knows she can’t turn her back on this kind of injustice.

When she uncovers the driver’s ties to a rash of recent heroin overdoses in the city, she realizes that this isn’t just a case of the military protecting its own. It runs much deeper than that, and the accused wasn’t acting alone. For Tracy, it’s all hitting very close to home.

As Tracy moves closer to uncovering the truth behind this insidious conspiracy, she’s putting herself in harm’s way. And the only people she can rely on to make it out alive might be those she can no longer trust.

My Review

This is the fifth book in this series, and actually the first one I have read, it sure won’t be the last one, and I sure didn’t feel at all lost reading this one first.
Be ready for one action packed ride, and the hope for justice, and up and personal look at the lives of Seattle’s Police Department, and some Navy.
To be honest this one kept me guess all the way to the end, first I suspected one and then another, and the best part of the story is that it is so real that it could have actually happened.
I loved how everything that takes place seems to wrap around and come together to make the conclusion, and thus the compelling page-turner to find answers.
If you enjoy mystery that thrillers this one will wet your appetite and make you come back for more, all the while hoping that somehow justice will prevail.
I received this book through Net Galley and Publisher Thomas & Mercer, and was not required to give a positive review.
