Another excellent book in the Tracy Crosswhite series. Two investigations in this one: a neighborhood activist is gunned down, presumably ordered by the local drug dealer (Little Jimmy), with Faz and Del as lead detectives, and Tracy and Kins are asked by a mentee to look into a missing person case. A young Indian women interested in becoming a doctor, not being forced into a traditional arranged marriage, has disappeared in the wake of her best friend's announcement that she got married during a visit to India. Sadly her body is discovered in a park in nearby Bellevue, and the culprit was obvious to me about 1/2 way through. Tracy is also fearful for her job because she is pregnant, Captain Nolasco dislikes her, and a new female detective is assigned to their team under questionable circumstances. Some intense family drama in this sixth book in the series. (Don't want to wait until 2020 for the next one: A Cold Trail. ( )

Better than some, not as good as others in the series. I was much more involved in the Faz and Del story line than the Tracy one. Yes, I'll be reading the next one soon. ( )

While Tracy is busy with the missing woman case is Vic Fazzio dealing with the murder of a local community activist...two stories in the same book and set in a familiar area. Some of the plot twists are unexpected. Tracy's case deals with Indian arranged marriages and the villain is_____. Makes one think about the other guy's marriage traditions. The cop characters have sincere relationships that are pretty well told...like "Barney Miller" tv series. I couldn't comment on the criminals nor the Indians. Book #6 is a winner--on to #7. ( )

A STEEP PRICE is one of the best books I have read in this series. There was just something really engrossing about the mystery of the missing woman. I especially liked that the readers also got the missing woman's POV.

While Tracy is busy with the missing woman case is Vic Fazzio dealing with the murder of a local community activist. The investigations take a deadly turn and it could mean the end of Vic's career. Last, but not least is the fact that Tracy is pregnant and trying to hide it. She gets pretty pissed off when a new female cop arrives takes one look at Tracy and sees that she's pregnant. Could this mean that someone higher up knows about Tracy's condition and is planning on replacing her?

A STEEP PRICE is an engrossing new book in the Tracy Crosswhite series. I especially enjoyed the personal stuff in this book. It really made me feel for the characters as they both have to deal with police business as well as personal problems. This book really hit the spot for me and I can't wait to read the next one!

I want to thank Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review! ( )

A Steep Price, though #6 in this series, can be read as a standalone, but this is such an excellent series, I recommend you read them all. Once again, there are two stories being told as anyone knows that there is always more than one crime happening at a time. Detectives Del Castigliano and Vic Fazzio of the Seattle Police Department A Team are called to a shooting. It is daytime and a mother of two, Monique Rogers is gunned down in broad daylight in a city park. She is an African American community activist, who is trying to clean up the drug trade in her neighbourhood of South Park. Was this a retaliatory shooting or was Mrs. Rogers just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Not a soul will offer any information whatsoever. Faz, is sure that Little Jimmy, has something to do with this killing as he runs the drugs for the Sureno Cartel. Meanwhile, Detective Tracy Crosswhite is tied up in court as a witness while trying to keep her pregnancy a secret. Even though she has not revealed her pregnancy, a young female detective, Andrea Gonzalez, shows up as a new member of the A Team. Gonzalez already crosses swords with Tracy by asking her about her secret pregnancy. Has Captain Nolasco set plans into motion for a replacement for Tracy? When their only suspect is killed by Gonzalez, it looks like Faz is the fall guy for this shooting of an unarmed man. As Tracy is trying to reconcile why Gonzalez is there, she receives a call about a missing woman, Kavita Mukherjee. According to her best friend, Aditi, both women had their eyes set on medical school and roomed together. When Vita finds out Aditi is now married, she is angry and disappears. Is she just hiding to wrap her mind around the changes this will bring to her life, or has something bad happened to her?

I liked that this story has Del and Faz front and center. Not only is Faz dealing with the issues plaguing his career, but his wife Vera has been diagnosed with cancer and he is also dealing with that. Del is off with a bad back, but when he comes back, he knows it is up to him to find out what really happened and clear Faz's name. This one is layered with crimes, brutality, gangs and drugs in one plotline, as well as arranged marriages, the place of women and how families believe that woman are property in some cultures. The issues of breast cancer are also dealt with to a degree. So much going on, yet is all fits and Dugoni has once again penned suspenseful story with a lot of realism and family issues. Once again, be sure to read the acknowledgments at the end of the story to find out more about the topics chosen for this book. I am still very happy with this series and will continue to read it as long as Robert Dugoni continues to write the Tracy Crosswhite series. ( )
