Close to Home
by Robert Dugoni
The police investigate a hit-and-run that leaves a twelve-year-old boy dead, and discover the driver to be a serviceman at the local naval base. After key evidence goes missing, the serviceman goes free, and detective Tracy Crosswhite starts to suspect more is going on than meets the eye. Additionally, a series of heroin overdoses are occurring in the city, and there seems to be a connection between the hit-and-run case and the drugs.
An exciting crime thriller. The plot has some twists that keep the reader interested and wanting to know more. For me, this book started off slow, but as I read I got more involved with the characters and how the story was going to play out. Also, the way the book delves into the heroin epidemic is handled in a very real way.
This is the 5th book in the Tracy Crosswhite series, but it’s the first one I have read.
I won the Kindle edition of this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.
