In the sixth novel in Robert Dugoni’s bestselling Tracy Crosswhite Series, A STEEP PRICE (Thomas & Mercer; June 2018), Tracy is called in to consult after a young woman disappears. She 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.
In this AUDIO interview, Authorlink talks to Robert Dugoni about what motivated him to write about the effects of cultural differences in his newest novel and explains why this was the toughest book in the series to write.

In A STEEP PRICE, 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.

“Fully developed characters and a fast-moving plot that builds to a shocker of an ending distinguish this crime novel.”
“Dugoni winds up both cases satisfactorily, if not very compellingly or brilliantly…”
