Bonus Post - Review of A Steep Place by Robert Dugoni
Hi guys, today we have a bonus review simply because I just realized we haven’t yet discussed A Steep Place by Robert Dugoni! Plus, I am itching to share what my thoughts were after reading it. So, let’s do it! As usual, we start with a brief disclaimer. The views presented in this post are 100% my own and are not intended to sway you in any way against or towards any particular direction. This is simply my honest thoughts of the book. Now let’s dive into the actual review.
Called in to consult after a young woman disappears, Tracy Crosswhite has the uneasy feeling that this is no ordinary missing-persons case. When the body turns up in an abandoned well, Tracy’s suspicions are confirmed. Estranged from her family, the victim had balked at an arranged marriage and had planned to attend graduate school. But someone cut her dreams short.
Solving the mystery behind the murder isn’t Tracy’s only challenge. The detective is keeping a secret of her own: she’s pregnant. And now her biggest fear seems to be coming true when a new detective arrives to replace her. Meanwhile, Tracy’s colleague Vic Fazzio is about to take a fall after his investigation into the murder of a local community activist turns violent and leaves an invaluable witness dead.
Two careers are on the line. And when more deadly secrets emerge, jobs might not be the only things at risk.

Rating - 4 Stars
I have to admit I literally just stumbled upon this book while browsing Amazon, but I am elated that I did. I LOVED this book! A Steep Place is the sixth entry in the Tracy Crosswhite series, but it is the first one that I have ever read. Luckily not reading it in order didn’t detract too much from the plot or storyline.
The novel focused on two’ A team’ cases, with a new female “fifth wheel” Andrea Gonzalez. Tracy (while pregnant) is asked to assist Pryor with a missing person case involving an independent, smart Indian woman who strongwilled and continuously questions her family’s Indian traditions. Faz and Del investigate the death of a female activist. Though throughout the course of the investigation, Andrea has to step in has Del as he throws his back. We also follow Vera’s medical journey and its effect on Faz as he fights to concentrate on his case while being there for his wife.
The book reeled me in from the very first page. It was humorous, engaging, and well written. The characters were relatable, and the issues presented were resolved well. I will definitely be diving deeper into this series, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the suspense genre.
