Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni's acclaimed series continues as Tracy Crosswhite is thrown headlong into the path of a killer conspiracy.
While investigating the hit-and-run death of a young boy, Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite makes a startling discovery: the suspect is an active-duty serviceman at a local naval base. After a key piece of case evidence goes missing, he is cleared of charges in a military court. But Tracy knows she can't turn her back on this kind of injustice.
When she uncovers the driver's ties to a rash of recent heroin overdoses in the city, she realizes that this isn't just a case of the military protecting its own. It runs much deeper than that, and the accused wasn't acting alone. For Tracy, it's all hitting very close to home.
As Tracy moves closer to uncovering the truth behind this insidious conspiracy, she's putting herself in harm's way. And the only people she can rely on to make it out alive might be those she can no longer trust.

Terrific police procedural!

Detective Tracy Crosswhite at age 43 is finally married to her childhood friend and successful attorney. She wants a baby so her husband has his vasectomy reversed and still they are having no success, so she is depressed after months of trying. A promising 12 year old black student is killed by a hit and run driver and Crosswhite and her partner get the case which is treated as murder. The teen niece of a fellow cop dies of a heroin overdoes. Her heroin death is the tenth in Seattle during the last year. Whoever is selling the heroin is cutting it with fentanyl, an opioid 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin. Ultimately, the crimes are all tied together in a single complex case. Close to Home is a great and complex suspense mystery.

One week prior to author Robert Dugoni releasing Close to Home set in Seattle author Louise Penny released Glass Houses set in the village of Three Pines in Quebec, Canada. The characters are very different, but the stories are similar in dealing with the growing opioid addiction crisis. There is another similarity in the way Dugoni and Penny write: their books are as much or more about close relationships, especially family, as about the crimes being solved.

As usual with the Tracy Crosswhite series the narration of Emily Sutton-Smith is very well done. I highly recommend Close to Home and all other Robert Dugoni novels.
