Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
First, sorry for the absence. My job kept me from being able to read anything. I'm hoping to now get back to my more usual routine, as not reading for a full week becomes a stressor in my eyes.
Robert Dugoni blew me away with last year's My Sister's Grave. This was first in the Tracy Crosswhite series. I'm not going to go into that book, and if you missed it, Her Final Breath does stand by itself, though I highly recommend the first.
Tracy Crosswhite is back, though her position within the police force is on shaky grounds due to her unwillingness to do as she's told. Tracy's good at following her gut, and usually her instincts are spot on. A number of recent murders are keeping police busy, and Tracy's convinced a case that was supposedly solved years ago was the first of the serial killer's work. If she's right, an innocent man is in jail for a murder he did not commit. With the Cowboy continuing his murderous rampage, Tracy decides to ignore her captain and investigate the case that many others want her to leave alone.
Her Final Breath is just as gripping as the first novel. I really enjoy Tracy's dedication to solving crimes, even if they are decades old and have been solved through shoddy investigation. Once again, she's a powerful force. Once again, it could cost her her job. You don't have the answers until the final page.
