  • Debra
    Tracy Crosswhite is pregnant and finishing up her testimony in court when she is called in to consult on a missing persons case by Detective Katie Pryor. She agrees with her friend that this case does not feel right. The missing young woman, Kavita Mukherjee, is not the typical missing person.

    "Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see." (Confucius)And Robert Dugoni will keep that thread weaving throughout his storyline. We'll catch a glimpse of those who cherish every moment given and those who throw life away like yesterday's news. The goodies, the baddies, and those in-between. Detectives Del Castigliano and Vic Fazzio of the Seattle Police Department A Team are called to a shooting in broad daylight in a city park. The victim...
  • Paromjit
    This is a great addition to the stellar Detective Tracy Crosswhite and the Violent Crime Unit series based in Seattle, Washington. There are two storylines that dominate this book. The pregnant Tracy finds herself immersed in a court trial as a witness, but responds when a colleague tells her about a missing person case. Washington University medical student and aspiring paediatrician, Kavita Mukherjee has disappeared, and Tracy's gut instinct te...

    Normally, I love Robert Dugoni’s Tracy Crosswhite books, and I can dive right in. Number six, A Steep Price, was a whole ‘nuther ball of wax for me. I did love it, for the most part, but it took a while for me to get into it. Why? For one thing, Detective Tracy Crosswhite starts out in court. She’s not even involved in the main case, which is the murder of a woman, a mother who’s fighting to organize her neighbors and her community to fig...
  • Maureen Carden
    On the surface A Steep Price is a fine police procedural about Detective Tracy Crosswhite’s team working two entirely different cases. Tracy’s case is at the request of t Detective Katie Pryor, Missing Persons Squad, and involves the disappearance of a beautiful East Indian woman, Kavita Mukherjee. Tracy is hung up testifying in court, so Det. Kin Rowe is soon roped into the investigation. When Tracy finds Kavita's body, Tracy is determined ...
  • Kelli Martin
    I absolutely loved this book. I didn’t want to put it down but unfortunately I did have to go to work and school. It’s written well enough to start here and not read the previous, but I definitely recommend starting with the first book. I love how the author is able to write from a police officers view point without it being too procedural. There are parts that made my mouth drop open, as I was not expecting it. I can’t wait until the next ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for an advance copy of A Steep Price, the sixth novel to feature Detective Tracy Crosswhite of the Seattle Major Crime Unit.Detectives Fazzio and Castiglione or Faz and Del as they are known are called out to South Park to the shooting of Monique Rogers, a local activist fighting the gun and drug culture in the area while Tracy is asked for help by Katie Pryor of the Missing Persons Unit in loca...
  • Amanda McGill
    A good step up from Book 5 (Close to Home), but still doesn't have the magic of the earlier novels.There are 2 cases in this one, which divides the 4 members of the A team into 2 groups. The first group is Faz and Del who are investigating the death of a local activist who was against the drug and gun culture in the community. Tracey gets a call to help look for Kavita Mukherjee, an Indian woman who is currently a medical student and has been mis...
  • Pamela
    My thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and Mr. Dugoni for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the 6th installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series. I LOVE this series, but am disappointed in this one. There are two parallel stories taking place, and jumping from one to the other nearly every chapter disrupted the flow and was annoying. This reader did not find it suspenseful. Being a police procedural novel, the crimes have already b...
  • Doreen Keele

It approaches every parents worst nightmare in one mystery and every marriages in another! Keeps a steady pace and is filled with twists! I highly recommend reading this!

    Robert Dugoni is one of my favorite authors and recently showed what a versatile author he is with the touching feel-good drama novel The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell after writing amazing legal thrillers in the David Sloane series as well as police/crime mysteries in the Tracy Crosswhite series. The first four books in the Crosswhite series were very exciting reads with Tracy Crosswhite as a badass female protagonist taking care of business wh...
  • Elisa
    This series usually features several different cases with which the "A-Team" grapple, all of them equally interesting but mostly at least tangentially related to each other. A Steep Price is a little less cohesive, to the point where Tracy and Kins could be part of a different novel than Del and Faz. Normally this would subtract points from my rating but, since I love this series, it was more like getting two novels in one. Tracy and Kins are inv...
  • Ray Moon
    Another Excellent Tracy Crosswhite Mystery/ThrillerThe novel opens with Del Castigliano and Vic Fazzio, two detectives on Tracy Crosswhite’s Violent Crime Team responding to a murder in South Park, a part of Seattle where a Mexican drug gang operates. Tracy is tied up testifying in a trial. As the trial goes to the jury, Tracy’s boss, Captain Nolasco, wants Tracy to work the South Park murder because it is becoming high profile. Tracy is cont...

    I’ve read all of the Tracy Crosswhite stories and listened to some of the David Sloan series and enjoy Mr. Dugoni’s writing. I’ve loved watching the changes in Tracy’s life from the first book to this more recent one. I enjoy the camaraderie between Tracy, Del, Vic, and Kins and the feeling that they are family. The stories are full of mystery and tension-filled suspense, and the police procedures are informative while easily moving the s...

    ‘A Steep Price’ is set around 4 months after the end of Book 5, and Tracey is trying to keep her pregnancy a secret for as long as possible, as she knows she’ll be put on desk duty as soon as she tells her supervisors. Adding to Tracey concern is the sudden appearance of a much younger, version of herself in Detective Gonzalez. Tracey is convinced the new detective is there to replace her while she goes on maternity leave.In this book Trace...
  • Krystal
    Let me begin my saying that although this is book number six in the series, you do not need to have read the previous books in order for this story one to make sense plot-wise. Each of the novels in this series can be read as stand alone stories. However, if this is the first time you are picking up a Tracy Crosswhite novel - just know you will have missed out on some excellent story-telling and the intricate relationships between the main cast o...

    As a long time fan of the Tracy Crosswhite series, I knew that I had to request this sixth installment on NetGalley.This book continues to develop the characters that we have all come to love. Faz and Del get pulled into a shooting, where the victim seems to have been targeted because of her outspoken feelings about the drug situation in South Park Seattle. They quickly find themselves falling into a case that’s even bigger than they could have...

    This is the sixth in the Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite series and I have enjoyed all of them. While Tracy, who hasn’t yet announced her pregnancy, is called out to assist in a missing persons case, her colleague, Vic Fazzio, is caught up in an officer involved shooting and things aren’t looking good for him. A new detective has been assigned to the team, causing some consternation for Tracy and the others. Is she really there to...
  • Patty Nobles
    “A Steep Price” is Robert Dugoni’s sixth installment in his Tracy Crosswhite’s series, and number six is filled with more suspense than any of the others in this series because of the added dimension of two pressing cases that have the whole A team in action. Tracy Crosswhite finds herself waiting for a verdict in an ongoing trial when a community activist is gunned down in cold blood, so it is up to her teammates Vic Fazzio and Del Casti...

    In “A Steep Price” we once again see Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite doing what she does best – solve crimes. What starts out as a missing person’s report that falls on her friends’ desk, quickly turns into an investigation into a newly married best friend and a family marred with what they consider disrespect to their heritage. What was different about “A Steep Price” was that Del and Faz (2 other homicide detectives on...

    Book Review: A Steep Price (Tracy Crosswhite #6) by Robert DugoniAfter all the non-stop action in "Close to Home" Book 5, one has to wonder what next? Would the story take a breather back to the humdrum of solving homicides and other "routine" violent crimes?Instead, in his easy reading style, the author fearlessly takes Tracy Crosswhite, Kins, Del and Faz to a bend in the journey to tackle a touchy subject: "Arranged Marriages in India and South...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for an advance copy of A Steep Price, the sixth novel to feature Detective Tracy Crosswhite of the Seattle Major Crime Unit. It’s written extremely well, I would not recommend starting on this book since it’s a lot of previous character building from the others. There are two cases in this book, which divides the four members of the A team into two groups. There is equal book time for both c...
  • Maureen Tumenas
    Thanks to NetGalley and to Thomas & Mercer for a review copy.I have enjoyed the Tracy Crosswhite series and this one continues in Dugoni's excellent tradition. A fairly typical police procedural, what stands out for this series is both a strong female lead, without all the either superwoman or sex object hoopla as well as a strong message about the role of women in society. This novel brought up the traditional arranged marriage, using the Indian...
  • Jennifer Margeson
    No stranger to Tracy Crosswhite's adventures, I was eager to read A Steep Price by Robert Dugoni and once again he does not disappoint. I enjoyed the parallel stores within the A team - there was less harassment by Nolasco (bonus) and the sugar baby subculture is a fresh, new topic in mystery-thriller, perfect for Tracy and pals to unravel. This story has action and a whodunit and is a great complement to the previous books in the series. I would...
