I just read this for the second time and enjoyed it just as much , if not more. That says something for a repeat reading of a mystery. I have read all his books, and look forward to more. His author comments at the end of his books are always insightful.

Picking up the latest book in this series has become an annual event I look forward to. Dugoni consistently delivers stories that combine clever, tightly plotted suspense with a great cast of characters & this one is no different.

The gang from Seattle PD’s Violent Crimes Section is back. Tracy Crosswhite & partner Kinsington Rowe are initially mystified when they’re assigned to a fatal hit & run. But when their investigation points to an employee at a local Navy base, things get complicated.

Meanwhile, Del Castigliano & Vic Fazzio are trying to track down the supplier of a deadly strain of heroin that’s hit the streets of Seattle & it’s personal. Del’s niece is one of the casualties & although he technically shouldn’t be involved, he’s determined to find those responsible for her death.

The 2 story lines unfold simultaneously & both are compelling with several twists to keep you on your toes. And there’s been a little change to the format. Instead of Tracy being the “star”, this instalment shines the limelight equally on all 4 of the lead detectives. It allows us to gain insight not only into their professional relationships but their private lives as well. Several are dealing with personal issues & these side stories add depth to the characters.

I like this series a lot. Believable, interesting, and generally likable characters and believable plot. Usually some aspect that is unusual and very interesting. The Naval vs civilian jurisdiction in this one for instance.
