A Cold Trail by Robert Dugoni [5/10]

“A Cold Trail” is the seventh procedural mystery featuring homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite. Recuperating in her old home town of Cedar Grove, outside her usual bailiwick of Seattle, she and her lawyer husband find their new cases – a brutal murder in her case, local business skullduggery in his – crossing paths, and under the steady hands of author Robert Dugoni, the pace clips along to a complex ending. Much to admire here, from the controlled plotting to the busy locales, though I found the mysteries a tad humdrum and the lead characters interesting but lacking spark. I read it in one sitting and can recommend it as a solid genre read.
