Publisher's Summary

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.

Horrible narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story was good and kept my interest

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She spoke in a monotone, voice almost dragging over certain words. It kept taking me out of the story. Also, there were snatches of very well-known songs (Happy Birthday, for one) that should have been sung, but this narrator read them in that infuriating monotone. I would love to listen to the other books in the series, but can't tolerate the narration!

Good Story, but ..

Good story, well-thought out mystery, but I personally don't do well with shifting first-person books that reveal the story from two perspectives and two time-periods so grudgingly. Makes it difficult for me to relate to the main character. Guess my thinking is too linear. I like solving the case in real-time along with the detective.

Robert Dugoni has become a favorite...

...author of novels of the modern detective genre. The Trapped Girl, audio version released today, is the 4th novel in his Tracy Crosswhite series. It is yet another solid 5 star thriller. Like others in the series this novel is set in Seattle where Crosswhite is a detective. This is a complex novel with action, suspense, and twists and turns. Dugoni is a master of the genre. Emily Sutton-Smith does a great job of narration.

Formulaic. Missed plot opportunities

If you've read other books in this series you've probably gotten a little bored with how formulaic the writing has gotten. This book is nothing special. It's just fine- at best. The narrator cannot do men's voices either

SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT
There was a real opportunity for an interesting plot twist by making the bad guy someone unexpected (like the supposed victim) but instead she went with the same lame plot formula she's been using and made a cop the bad guy (a character she very obviously set up for it and the story was incredibly predictable and boring.

Okay Story - Narrator not very talented.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was a decent story - average

Has The Trapped Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What didn’t you like about Emily Sutton-Smith’s performance?

The narrator was not very good at distinguishing the characters. Not a very good performance with accents or distinguishing the voices among the many characters.

Was The Trapped Girl worth the listening time?

Sure.

Did not keep me interested

Not very much action, more about the detective a lot of the time. Not a lot if action, maybe I'm used to more action-packed books.

Need a new reader

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

May have been better if I didn't have to listen to the reader make Dell sound like a dull wit. Also Fauz's voice wasn't done very well I'd rather hear her talking in her regular voice. Sorry

If you’ve listened to books by Robert Dugoni before, how does this one compare?

Not as good

Best in series so far

I have enjoyed all of the Tracy Crosswhite books, but this is the best one yet. The story kept me guessing until the end and the characters continue to develop. Very engaging and enjoyable read!

Great Mystery, Police Procedural

What strikes me about this and all of Dugoni's work is the depth of character he breathes into each of novels. The Crosswhite series is filled with great police work and the realities of office politics.

The Trapped Girl delves into the world of an abusive marriage, a runaway wife and murder. Dugoni is brilliant in delivering a great cast, a heck of a great mystery and top notch detective work.

Emily Sutton-Smith is excellent, one of the best narrators I have encountered.

The Trapped Girl is worth your time!

Not as good as the previous ones in the series

It was okay. Not nearly as good as the previous books, and the alternating pov narration was distracting. Disappointed.

Not disappointed

Another brilliant mystery featuring Tracy Crosswhite with enough twists to keep the reader guessing but not too many to make it difficult to follow.

Trapped Gir!

The book kept my interest throughout...it was well-written and the cause of my not pruning my bushes. The characters are believable and I did want to shake Andrea...but then I am a feminist.

Dugoni never disappoints

I’ve read everything by this author and although I prefer his Sloane series I still enjoy Crosswhite. A good twisting plot that I thought I’d solved! Heh! No! There was yet another twist!

Latest development

I have just finished the latest instalment in the Tracy Crosswhite series and really enjoyed it. I like getting snippets of the home lives of the supporting characters in the book, as well as the development of Detective Crosswhites. The story was full of twists and turns and I definitely did not see who the killer was until it was revealed. Narrator excellent fit for the book. I’m off to download the next in the series,

Brilliant read

One of her best yet. Great plot which is complicated enough to keep you reading but do not plan on doing anything else because you will not be able to stop reading.
