Dugoni applied the Page 69 Test to his new Tracy Crosswhite novel, A Cold Trail, and reported the following:
On page 69, Tracy is with Cedar Grove Police Chief Roy Calloway, and they are following a lead to determine if a murder could somehow be related to two others in Cedar Grove, though years apart. As the copy on the back cover deftly summarizes, this is the crux of the novel. Three murders in a small northwest town, decades apart, but with some seemingly tenuous connections. Can they be related? Can Tracy put the threads together? Chief Calloway represents the old school of law in Cedar Grove, back when things seemed bucolic and the town a great place to raise children. Tracy, however, knows better. She experienced evil in this small town when her sister disappeared, never to be seen or heard from until twenty years later. Now she’s back in Cedar Grove and she doesn’t remember everything as being bright and beautiful. She sees the town for what it is, a place where a murder, perhaps two, maybe three, could all be related, and indicative that the town’s dark past is not in the past.
