It's a cold Cleveland November day when forensic trace evidence expert Evelyn James is summoned to the scene of a bizarre crime. A young woman has been forcibly drowned, her feet chained and sunk in cement. When a second girl connected to a prominent family is found with evidence that links her murder to the first, all hell breaks loose. The police–and Evelyn–are officially up against the clock to find the murderer.
This authentic, high-octane debut by Becka's own career as a veteran forensic scientist and her experience using physical evidence recovered from crime scenes–such as blood, hair, fibers and other microscopic particles–to unlock the secrets of the dead and bring justice to those who have no voice. Gripping until the last page, TRACE EVIDENCE introduces an exciting new voice in crime fiction.
This is the first book by this author that I have listened to. I listen as I drive to and from work (an hour each way) and I have been so mesmerized by this book that I don't want to shut it off when I get to my destination. The reader is excellent, changing voices with the characters so you can follow who is talking. The descriptions used by the author give you enough to visualize what she is talking about without boring you. (as the wonderful Stephen King can do sometimes) Great plot and suspense. Reminds me of an episode of CSI. If you are a fan of that show, you will love this book
