I loved this book! Tracy Crosswhite is an incredible detective and wonderful character. And there are actually two really fascinating cases in this novel that require excellent police work.
The Clearing revolves around a cold case which was ruled a suicide some 40 years earlier. Crosswhite's friend's father, now dead, was new in the sherrif's department when the events occurred. He had well founded suspicions that the victim, an 18 year old Native American, was actually murdered. His inexperience renders him powerless as well as voiceless. He subsequently began a private investigation on his own, one that would last 40 years until his death. Crosswhite picks up the case on her own time, aided with modern forensics unavailable to law enforcement at the time of the crime.
Dugoni introduces us to characters living with the very real and tragic effects of violence, guilt, shame and lies. This is truly one of the best novels I've read lately.
I would put this up with John Hart's Redemption Road as the best mysteries of the year.

I have read all the books in this series so far. While the books aren't great, they are good enough that I continue reading them. This book is a decent and entertaining addition to the series.
There are two distinct mysteries in this book that the detectives are attempting to solve. While this could easily lead to a disjointed and convoluted read, the author manages to present both stories in a way that works, until it doesn't. Quite a few times I was left with the impression that the secondary case was a space filler and it left me wishing the author had just focused on one case and developed it a lot more. I think that would have made this a much better book.

Dugoni is very good and he knows how's to keep his reader's engaged and griped from the very start. The narrator is good and doesn't detract from the story
Great story great characters and great narration that we enjoyed driving across the US together
An enthralling cold case that is a bit close to home for Tracy. As it brings back memories of her sister’s case will it be too much for her? An interesting and engaging story with a lot of side stories the teader is slowly brought to an exciting conclusion. As to Tracy’s romance with Dan....we definitely need to know more.
not as good as earlier books in the series. storyline was not particularly engaging and narration had the same style of talking for each gender
