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.

Interesting

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series but I didn’t find it mattered too much. Te subtle referrals to the previous storyline was enough for me to catch up with what I had missed.

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.

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!

Plot - OK, but rest - not

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Though the murder plot was interesting, the personal story line of Crosswhite was distracting and at times juvenile. Dialogue seemed cookie-cutter simple.

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

No.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Sutton-Smith?

Not sure why some characters needed separate rendition in voice while others didn't.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Trapped Girl?

Most of the personal life stuff of Crosswhite. Boring and long . . . If I were reading a paper copy, I'd have skipped all that to continue with the detective/murder plot scenes.

Any additional comments?

Thanks for the option to return.

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.
