“An immensely—almost compulsively—readable tale…A crackerjack mystery.”Booklist (starred review)

“In bestseller Dugoni’s nail-biting fifth Tracy Crosswhite mystery…[he] embellishes this clever procedural with well-developed characters and an interesting exploration of Navy criminal justice.” Publishers Weekly

"Dugoni has a gift for creating compelling characters and mysteries that seem straightforward, but his stories, like an onion, have many hidden layers. He also is able to capture the spirit and atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest, making the environment come alive.” Associated Press
