In this #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller, Tracy Crosswhite must first identify the victim to catch the killer.

When a woman's body is discovered submerged in a crab pot in the chilly waters of Puget Sound, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself with a tough case to untangle. Before they can identify the killer, Tracy and her colleagues on the Seattle PD's Violent Crimes Section must figure out who the victim is. Her autopsy, however, reveals she may have gone to great lengths to conceal her identity. So who was she running from?

After evidence surfaces that their Jane Doe may be a woman who suspiciously disappeared months earlier, Tracy is once again haunted by the memory of her sister's unsolved murder. Dredging up details from the woman's past leads to conflicting clues that only seem to muddy the investigation. As Tracy begins to uncover a twisted tale of brutal betrayal and desperate greed, she'll find herself risking everything to confront a killer who won't go down without a deadly fight. Once again, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni delivers a taut, riveting thriller in the fourth installment of his acclaimed Tracy Crosswhite series.

    The Trapped Girl is the fourth book in the Tracy Crosswhite series by best-selling award-winning American author, Robert Dugoni. The woman’s body is pulled up in a crab pot near the islands off Seattle. The autopsy gives a clue to her identity, but Detective Tracy Crosswhite and her team aren’t convinced, and rightly so: as soon as the licence photo is distributed widely, a ranger at the Mt Ranier National Park claims her as a woman apparently missing from Liberty Ridge, some six weeks earlier.

    Her husband, Graham Strickland was under suspicion for her murder on the mountain, but what’s soon clear is that this woman was on the run: she had altered her appearance and acquired false identity documents. But was the mountain disappearance a set up with the husband to claim insurance? Or did she go missing intentionally, hoping to fool him? Why? And if so, who helped her from the mountain? And then how did she end up in the crab pot?

    Dugoni gives the reader a tangled story of a hasty marriage, a greedy husband, affairs and abuse, a rich trust fund, plastic surgery and secret bank accounts. He includes plenty of distractions, turns and red herrings in the build-up to a nail-biting climax.

    It’s so cleverly plotted that the reader might be advised to pre-book a chiropractic appointment for the many about-faces regards the identity of the murderer that will result as the story progresses. It’s refreshing to have a protagonist whose personal life is stable and not plagued by excessive drink, drugs or other risky behaviours, so the significant event in Tracy’s life that occurs in this installment will bring a smile to many. Excellent crime fiction.
