Good short. Very much enjoyed Tracy taking Nolasco down a few pegs and seeing their relationship from the very beginning. Man, I hate that guy. ( )

This short story is a prequel to the "Tracy Crosswhite" series that shows the determination and fortitude in one woman’s story to serve a higher purpose and to overcome in a male dominated work environment. I listened to it in about an hour and found myself rooting for the two women in the story. ( )

The first short story prequel as I get ready to read My Sister’s Grave. I like Dugoni's writing style and this was a great introduction to Dugoni's Tracy Crosswhite detective series. ( )

Impressive for a short story

This is only my second book by Dugoni and I find his writing pretty impressive. When you're lost in the story; appreciate the characters, have a few laughs, and resonate with the theme, what else can you ask for? Dugoni makes it seem effortless. The man has mad skills. ( )

Loved reading the short breakdown of Tracy's days while at the police academy. This quick read sums up the instant clash between Tracy and Nolasco. ( )
