Robert Dugoni’s 8th Tracy Crosswhite Thriller Announced, Due out April 2021

As readers don’t already have enough reasons to want 2020 to be over faster, here’s one more: On April 27th, 2021, Tracy Crosswhite returns in In Her Tracks, the eighth book in Robert Dugoni’s bestselling series. 

Dugoni, who has been on absolute fire lately, is pumping out must-read material faster than just about anyone. In fact, his second 2020 title (A Cold Trail, Tracy Crosswhite #7, came out back in February) The Last Agent, a sequel to his 2019 smash-hit The Eighth Sister, is one of the best spy thrillers I’ve ever covered. It’s that good. That book drops on September 22 and is not to be missed—so check back in the coming weeks for more coverage, including a full review, on that one. 

As for 2021, it’s unclear if that will be another two-book year for Dugoni, though it’s certainly looking like that could once again be the case.

Crosswhite, who first appeared in My Sisters Grave (2014), has gone on to anchor one of the best crime series in print right now and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. In Her Tracks will follow the Seattle detective, who was recently reassigned to the Seattle PD’s cold case unit, as she searches for answers in regards to the disappearance for a five-year-old girl, which may or may not have something to do with another case involving a young woman who recently vanished.

See the cover art and plot details below.


In Her TracksWhat family secrets are behind two disappearances? Seattle detective Tracy Crosswhite is determined to uncover the truth in the latest installment of New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s heart-stopping series.

Returning from an extended leave in her hometown of Cedar Grove, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself reassigned to the Seattle PD’s cold case unit. As the protective mother of an infant daughter, Tracy is immediately drawn to her first file: the abduction of a five-year-old girl whose parents, embattled in a poisonous divorce, were once prime suspects.

While reconstructing the days leading up to the girl’s disappearance, Tracy is brought into an active investigation with former partner Kinsington Rowe. A young woman has vanished on an isolated jogging trail in North Seattle. Divided between two critical cases, Tracy has little to go on except the treacherous deceptions behind a broken marriage—and now, the secrets hiding behind the closed doors of a deceptively quiet middle-class neighborhood.

To find two missing persons, Tracy will have to follow more than clues, which are both long cold and unsettlingly fresh. Given her own traumatic past, Tracy must also follow her instincts—to whatever dark and dangerous places they may lead.
