⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
In the next addition of Tracy Crosswhite series , Tracy is pregnant and trying to hide it from everybody in her precinct while investigating a missing Indian women’s case. Meanwhile Faz and Del are investigating the shooting death of a community activist who was against the drug and gun culture .

A Steep Price by Robert Dugoni is the sixth book in Tracy Crosswhite police procedural series. Even though I have enjoyed the series so far this one seems lacking and was a little predictable. However I will still read the next one in the series
