Now that I own a Kindle, I am taking advantage of my Amazon Prime perks which includes Kindle First, a program where I’m eligible to download one of four editor choice pre-release books for free per month. This was one of them.
I had not previously heard of the author Robert Dugoni a trained lawyer who writes best-selling legal thrillers. I’m glad to have stumbled upon his book.
My Sister’s Grave tells the story of Tracy Crosswhite, the first female homicide detective in Seattle, WA, who has long felt responsible for the disappearance of her younger sister 20 years prior. Though her body was not found, a misfit had been tried and convicted of her apparent murder. Tracy had never been comfortable with this conviction convinced that there had been a conspiracy and sets about trying to figure things out for herself. She in fact leaves her job as a high school chemistry teacher to join the police force. Now in the present, her sister’s body is found when a man-made lake (created around the time of her sister’s disappearance) is drained.
The majority of the book is then spent figuring out what happened to her sister and how the man convicted for her apparent murder came to be found guilty. Did he do it or not? The truth will shock you!
This was an enjoyable read!
