Tracy Crosswhite is back in the eight installment of the Tracy Crosswhite series, In Her Tracks by bestselling author Robert Dugoni. Tracy is just back to work from having taken maternity leave and is disappointed to find that her boss, who doesn’t like her and holds a grudge from the academy when Tracy beat him with her skills, has demoted her to Seattle PD cold cases. Tracy makes the best of it and works on the case of a 5 year old who was abducted from a Halloween corn maze several years ago. However, while working on that cold case, she also helps one of her former colleagues in her previous department investigate the disappearance of a young girl who was a die-hard runner and was most likely running in a place that wasn’t familiar.

Tracy is a likeable character, and Dugoni adds to her validity as a main character with each installment in the series. Tracy seems like a real person, and has flaws and challenges that most readers can relate to. Her character gets more well-developed with each novel. Dugoni is also a very skilled storyteller and makes the story flow so that it’s difficult to put the novel down. There are twists and turns, and while readers can surmise what happened to the missing girl, Tracy and her fellow detectives have not, and it’s interesting how Dugoni inserts the clues so that the case can be solved.

Once again, Dugoni has written a winner; fans of Tracy Crosswhite will want to rush to pick up this excellent installment. Because of all of the previous happenings in Tracy’s life, it is suggested that readers pick up the previous books, which will introduce Tracy, et al and give information about what has happened up to the start of this novel.
