A Steep Price - Tracy Crosswhite Book 6

Called in to consult after a young woman disappears, Tracy Crosswhite has the uneasy
feeling that this is no ordinary missing-persons case. When the body turns up in
an abandoned well, Tracy's suspicions are confirmed. Estranged from her family,
the victim had balked at an arranged marriage and had planned to attend graduate
school. But someone cut her dreams short.

Solving the mystery behind the murder isn't Tracy's only challenge. The detective
is keeping a secret of her own: she's pregnant. And now her biggest fear seems to
be coming true when a new detective arrives to replace her. Meanwhile, Tracy's colleague
Vic Fazzio is about to take a fall after his investigation into the murder of a 
local community activist turns violent and leaves an invaluable witness dead.
Two careers are on the line. And when more deadly secrets emerge, jobs might not
be the only things at risk.

"Robert Dugoni has multiple stories that weave into a beautiful narrative. What makes A Steep Price stand out is the authentic feel of how it feels to work as a police officer in a major city. With relevant and timely issues, including the treatment of women in the workplace and how some cultures believe in the practice of arranged marriage, the result is another outstanding novel from one of the best crime writers in the business."

Associated Press


“Packed with suspense, drama, and raw emotion…Dugoni has a firm grasp of the plot threads, and he shifts back and forth between them expertly, building suspense and keeping us on our toes. A fine entry in a solid series.”



“Fully developed characters and a fast-moving plot that builds to a shocker of an ending distinguish this crime novel.” 

Publishers Weekly

“Dugoni winds up both cases satisfactorily, if not very compellingly or brilliantly…”
