Seattle Police Detective Tracy Crosswhite and her team are called out to an unusual scene where the victim was accidentally found by a teen out trying to retrieve his crab pot. Unfortunately for him (and the killer), he snags the wrong pot with the body of a woman inside. Before they can begin investigating how she got there, they must first figure out her identity. Little did they know how utterly exasperating that would become.
To describe this as a twisty story would be an understatement and not do it true justice. Every time I went down one path, something else would arise to challenge that decision. I developed several theories, adjusting and tweaking them as the story progressed. I got lucky, though, as I relied on my instincts and ended up being close to right. It was a little different this time because we got the narrative of the Jane Doe, along with Tracy’s, without knowing her outcome since it was from an earlier timeline. That made this a much more vexing mystery.
I’m loving this series with its compelling and complex mysteries and procedurals. One of the best elements is the investigative process that Tracy and her fellow detectives relentlessly follow and respect. They’re really skilled and this case tested them because of the convoluted path it took to resolution. And, we were delivered a very special surprise at the end that’s life changing for Tracy. I listened to the story and continue to love the narrator’s performance, especially her creative choices for distinguishing characters. Her pacing is outstanding and she never exaggerates the drama. This was a tough one that I found difficult to put down.
