Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House — a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder — is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.
When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past — and open the door to deadly danger.
I’ve had My Sister’s Grave on my kindle for ages, and I had been looking for something to read outside my usual ARC’s and review copies and this one jumped out at me. Also, any time I’m on Amazon I see the series being promoted and it keeps reminding me that I should start it 😂
I purposely avoided the blurb and reviews so I went into it not necessarily knowing anything about it, which is how I like it! Too much research and review reading beforehand means I have an idea of what to expect, and so times I just like to read without knowing too much.
My Sister’s Grave is a thrilling start to the series. Opening with the disappearance of Tracy Crosswhite’s sister twenty years previously, and going back and forth with timelines, the reader gets an insight into Tracy then as well as now, where she is a homicide detective in Seattle. I really liked Tracy as a character too, there was just something about her that made me want to keep reading and hope for a resolution for her.
When her sister Sarah’s remains are found, Tracy returns to inter them, and at the same time ends up starting an investigation into her death again as there is new evidence. This investigation is rife with problems from the start. Something about small towns give these books a claustrophobic feeling that is heightened when information comes to light, and brings danger with it.
Running alongside this, the man who was initially charged with Sarah’s murder twenty years ago appeals for a new trial, because the evidence points to someone else. Edmund House was an interesting character; awful, vile and creepy are probably better adjectives in fairness!!!
My Sister’s Grave reads like a crime thriller as well as a legal one, and it’s thoroughly enjoyable. Once I started reading, I was hooked and intrigued until the very last pages. If you haven’t read this, I would highly recommend it! 😉 I gave My Sister’s Grave 4⭐️ on Goodreads! You can pick up a copy by clicking on the link below:
