A young woman has been forcibly drowned, her feet chained and sunk in cement.

Trace Evidence is a strong debut with an exciting conclusion. It was a little slow to start, but the characters are engaging. I'm not sure I really 'bought' the killer's motivation and there were some significant issues that were not wrapped up at the end of the book, so I did not give it 5 stars, but it was still an enjoyable mystery and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
