Close To Home

A young boy’s death pits Tracy Against her most powerful Foe!


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.

“Close to Home [is] another thrilling addition to Dugoni’s Crosswhite series. By taking the time to focus on secondary characters, he adds to the depth and scope of the tale while opening up exciting future story lines.”

Associated Press

“Dugoni’s twisted tale is one of conspiracy and culpability… richly nuanced and entirely compelling… Further amplifying such gravitas is the richly atmospheric sense of place, with Seattle’s bitter chill serving as a suitable backdrop..."

Criminal Element

"An immensely—almost compulsively—readable tale…A crackerjack mystery." 

Booklist Starred Review


"In bestseller Dugoni’s nail-biting fifth Tracy Crosswhite mystery…[he] embellishes this clever procedural with well-developed characters and an interesting exploration of Navy criminal justice."
