About this deal

Dugoni is a very descriptive in this chilly cold case mystery both in character development and setting.

She hasn’t gone home for twenty years… That is how long it has been since her sister went missing and was presumed murdered. Bryan Hallett You're right, electricity is generally considered to be a topic studied in Physics, not Chemistry. Tracy Crosswhite has spent 20 years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. I definitely enjoyed reading this novel, and had it not been for Christmas and the holidays , I would have devoured it faster. The plot contains twists that will capture the attention of the reader, though I’ll admit I did figure out a few of the plot’s mysteries before they were revealed.It also shows how Tracy is dealing with the guilt and how she's believed all these years that the sheriff, district attorney, and others lied in court. Tracy Crosswhite makes a very engaging protagonist and the story moves at such a fast clip that it's almost impossible to put the book down once it gets rolling. Overall, this was a fantastic book with well-developed characters, a great setting, realistic dialogue, and a page-turning story line.

Tracy is now a detective with the Violent Crimes team in Seattle, and she’s headed back to Cedar Grove, their hometown, to find out what happened to Sarah. There are a few red herrings and a number of moments of high drama and tension as the story unfolds, with the courtroom scenes being particularly dramatic. There really isn't any wasted time on superfluous red herrings but I still felt myself questioning everything as the story was laid out. for a stand-alone about a police detective, a developmentally delayed boy, and a package everyone in North Dakota wants to grab.I’m not sure exactly what was lacking, but I did not get emotionally involved or connected with any of the characters. So while one can really enjoy this story as a relatively straightforward police procedural and legal thriller (and with a hint of romance thrown into the mix), for me it went much further. The town of Cedar Grove put a man named Edmund House away for the crime, but something seemed off to Tracy. Dugoni uses vivid descriptions that help a reader to better understand the small-town environment as well as the weather, secrets, lies, and emotions that are prevalent in the book.

Then, as the results of Tracy’s investigations came to light, the story took a macabre turn and an ending that was too far-fetched for me. As the book opens, Sarah's remains are finally found by two hunters in a heavily wooded area that had previously been covered by a lake.The Sinker - It’s twenty years, twenty long years to wonder where the body of your sister has been buried. This conventional opening could lead readers to think they’re watching an old pro going through the motions. His books are sold world-wide in more than 20 countries and have been translated into a dozen languages including French, German, Italian and Spanish.

It also explores the ramifications that the discovery has on those residents who, while still alive today, were involved in the original investigation. Most basic chemistry is rarely used by the layperson (reader), but everyone uses a electricity on a daily basis.And it also raises the issue of whether it is possible to trust oneself to become emotionally attached to another person following the experience of a marriage that had not survived a traumatic event. This novel will appeal to fans of legal crime thrillers, courtroom dramas, investigations, and police procedures with well-developed characters, in a small town setting.
