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.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara Plumley | 1/3/2014

    " Very obviously her first book. Clunky un flowing dialogue. Hard work for a shot book. At times iI thought hse was trying too hard and at times not hard enough. It has not earned a space in the book shelves; off to the charity shop! Not a patch on Kathy Reichs. "
