The Third Watch

Tracy Crosswhite's ordinary night patrolling her Seattle beat becomes front page news when she responds to a domestic disturbance call that turns into a hostage crisis. 

In this prequel short story to Robert Dugoni's #1 Kindle-bestselling novel, My Sister's Grave, Tracy Crosswhite is a young patrol officer, paying her dues, keeping her head down, and hoping a solid record will get her promoted to detective. While years have passed since the disappearance of Tracy s sister, the experience has made her one of the city's most dedicated cops. 

Reporter Tevia Kushman is shadowing Tracy on a ride-along seeking to follow-up on a recent (and nasty) exposÈ about the Seattle PD's treatment of female cops. Young and ambitious, Tevia is hoping for a juicy scoop on the gender politics of the PD, but may get a much bigger story than she bargained for... 

Neither woman expects a routine-sounding call to turn into something dangerous, until Tracy walks into a domestic dispute and finds herself looking down the barrel of a shot-gun. No stranger to high-pressure situations, Tracy must draw on more than just her academy training and lightning-fast shooting skills to find a way to talk down-or take out-the volatile man holding the gun. 

"Fasten your seat belts, you in for a ride."
Debbie Kirkland, Amazone 5 star Review


"This short story has you begging for more of Tracy Crosswhite. You can't help falling in love with her who is caring but is ready to put herself in harm's way without thinking twice."
