Tell Me: A CSI Grace McColl Short Story
When the evidence speaks, she listens.
This short story features Crime Scene Investigator Grace McColl, whose empathy with the victims of violent crime makes her ideally suited to gathering vital clues others might easily overlook.
Tell Me is the poignant tale of the meeting between Grace and a young girl attacked in a local park. The victim may be reluctant to tell the CSI who she is and what happened, but the evidence will speak for itself, and Grace is a very good listener.
