My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni

Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House — a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder — is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.

When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past — and open the door to deadly danger.

WOW Not at all how I expected things to unfold or this to end. I honestly thought the secrets kept were for one reason and I was so wrong. Sometimes people are just so stupid, even if they meant well, just so darn stupid and really mess up the lives around them.

What an ending, what a reveal, what a situation. What’s worse? The horror of never knowing or the horror of knowing the truth and wishing you didn’t. 

Highlight for spoilers 

 ((((OMG if only the dumb ass men involved had told the truth from the beginning then Tracy wouldn’t have fought so hard to free House. Then a killer wouldn’t not have gone loose. I know they were trying to protect her, but all their lies only made things worse. 

That’s right, Edmund House did kill Sarah, but all the men involved in bringing him to justice messed with evidence to hide something important. He admitted to to raping and killing Sarah, but it wasn’t rerecorded, and wanting Tracy, but settled for her sister instead. Her dad decided that if Tracy knew House wanted her from the beginning the guilt would kill her. They should have known Tracy, they should have known that she would not stop till all the facts added up. 

If only they had told the truth from the beginning, House would have stayed in jail and Tracy would not have spent twenty years trying to find the “real” killer.))))
