My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni

Tracy Crosswhite and her sister Sarah were competitive shooters. On the night of a big competition one sister goes missing while the other is accepting a proposal from her boyfriend. Tracy is now a detective and has not been able to stop asking questions about her sister’s disappearance. Tracy finally gets a call that changes everything. They have found her sister’s body. Now Tracy is sure that the man convicted of her sister’s disappearance and death was actually innocent. Tracy is determined to find the answers she has been looking for and enlists the help of a childhood friend. Tracy faces old demons and unanswered questions in her quest for just for Sarah.

This is the first Robert Dugoni book I have read. I found myself unable to put the book down from the beginning. The author did a great job of providing flash backs without making the book confusing. The author added a little bit of humor in some of the dialog that broke up the tension of the story. It was done in a creative and effective way. I also found that the author had unique ways to describe everyday things, like what your breath looks like in cold air.

I found myself aching for Tracy and wanting her to find answers. By the end of the book I was hoping that it wasn’t true. I felt so bad for her but grateful that she eventually had closer. The author did a wonderful job developing the characters to the point that I was feeling emotions for them. I found the story picked up speed for me about half way through the book. The author did a great job of making the reader question things along with the characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more Robert Dugoni books in the future.

  1. What a great blog. Its inspirational and mouthwatering all at the same time.
    Psychometrics Tests

  2. But, seriously, folks, as I stand-up
    here on this Great Stage of our lifelong demise
    (only 66ish feet across and 1-outta-1 croaks),
    what's the MOST important objective in your
    finite existence, dear? I certainly know what mine is:

    Hope2God this provides some knowledge
    on your everlasting, spiritual journey;
    I may see you again Upstairs... maybe not...
    depending on how well WE mortals have fulfilled
    our voyage to the Great Beyond by 1) loving God
    and 2) loving our neighbor to the best of our ability.

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2 all-go-rhythm?
    An extraordinarily, anti-establishment-victory
    with both sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy
    and avant-guarde-humility??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love –
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll VitSee with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.
