Trace Evidence by Elizabeth Becka is one of those books that draw their inspiration from the lives of their authors, a la Patricia Cornwell and the like books. Elizabeth Becka, a forensic specialist, writes about Evelyn James, a trace evidence specialist who helps solve crimes and bring justice to those who have no voice. It is an interesting read. For a debut novel, it is a piece of mastery

A gripping suspense novel that introduces forensic expert Evelyn James as she tries to decipher trace evidence and solve a bizarre crime. It’s a cold Cleveland November day when forensic trace evidence expert Evelyn James is summoned to the scene of a bizarre crime. When a second young victim is connected to a prominent family, all hell breaks loose, and the police–and Evelyn–are up against it to find the murderer.

Great Start For a New Series. com User, December 10, 2005. This is a wonderful book, especially for people who are fans of Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs.

  • I don't remember if this is Elizabeth Becka's first book or second in the series but "Trace Evidence" and "Unknown Means" both tell of the investigative prowess of forensic specialist Evelyn James. The author knows this subject well as she is a forensic specialist working with the Cape Coral, Florida, police department. Her descriptions of the collection of crime scene evidence and it's preservation are very detailed with a little romance thrown in.

    I finished both books rather quickly so I am on the hunt for more to download on my Kindle.

  • I enjoyed reading this book....the plot was interesting, the forensics were authentic, the writing style was good. If you like CSI, you will like reading this book. A young female victim with concrete boots starts the action and it paces along nicely. Recommended reading for mystery fans.

  • wow! this book is the start of a great new series. the characters are believable.this could develop into a successful series on television.what else can be said,except great,wonderful and absolutely top of the line.

  • This story is one of suspense and intrigue. It does not pull any punches as it describes the victims .

  • It was good to read a book that represents the hard work and dedication of law enforcement investigators. Just the right amount of mystery, suspense, and romance!

  • I wasn't overwhelmed by either the suspense or tension in the story, but this is a decent entry into the forensic investigator genre, and has potential.

  • In the style of Patricia Cornwell (a real life former Medical Examiner), Keith Ablow (a forensic psychologist), and Kathy Reichs (a forensic anthropologist), new author Elizabeth Becka draws on her life as a forensic specialist to pen a wonderful thriller/forensic procedural!

    Evelyn James is a forensic scientist in Cleveland 's Medical Examiner's office. On a cold November day, she's called to the scene of a chilling crime--a young woman has been pulled from the river, arms and body encased in chains, her feet ensconced in a bucket of cement. Literally drowned to death, the mystery woman preys on Eveyln's mind--especially when another young woman is found dead a few days later. What's even worse is that the second dead girl is Destiny Pierson, daughter of Cleveland 's Mayor. Added to the complications is the fact that Evelyn and Darryl, the Mayor, were once college sweethearts over a decade ago, and Darryl hopes to use that connection to get inside information on the case.

    As Evelyn works with grizzled Homicide Detective Riley and newcomer Detective David, they find more missing persons cases that seem similar to the two latest deaths--and find a suspect who seems to fit the profile of their killer. Unfortunately, the suspect has knowledge of Evelyn and her daughter, Angel, leading them to the fact that sixteen-year-old Angel might be another intended victim.

    Forensic science mixes with police procedure in Elizabeth Becka's debut novel, and the result is a great read that will keep you turning pages late into the night. As you gain details of Evelyn's personal life, insights into the new Homicide Detective, and background on the serial killer preying on Cleveland 's young women, you'll be enthralled with the perfect mix of truth and fiction.

    I can only hope that Ms. Becka plans to return to Cleveland and Eveyln James, a forensic scientist that could well become another Kay Scarpetta, Frank Clevenger, or Temperance Brennan.

  • In Elizabeth's Becka's debut thriller, Evelyn James is a trace evidence expert for the Cleveland Police Department. She has an irritating ex-husband, a resentful adolescent daughter named Angel, and an obnoxious and demanding boss. Her latest case involves the murder of a woman whose mouth was covered in duct tape, whose feet were encased in cement-filled buckets, and whose body was trussed in chains before she was tossed into a river. During her career, Evelyn has seen some pretty gruesome crimes, but this has to be one of the most sadistic. She wonders, "Who could have been so unspeakably cruel as to kill someone this way, to permit her to feel the frenzied pumping of her own lungs as they filled with water...?"

    When the murderer claims his next victim, the pressure is on for a quick arrest. Although there are a few possible suspects, nothing concrete ties them to the murders. "Trace Evidence" features a spunky yet vulnerable heroine who is trying her best to succeed in a high-pressure job. Evelyn's personal life is in disarray. She resents her ex-husband and his perky new wife, and although she adores her daughter, she acknowledges that Angel can be exasperating. Since her divorce, Evelyn has had little time or inclination to pursue a social life, but she is attracted to David Milaski, a new and ambitious homicide detective with a hidden past.

    Becka does a number of things right. She balances humor and horror nicely, explains the forensic details with clarity and flair, and sets up her mystery intriguingly. Unfortunately, the serial killer is straight from central casting, the twists and turns make little sense and rely on far-fetched coincidences, and the conclusion is pat and formulaic. In her inevitable sequel, Becka would do well to break away from convention and aim for a bit more originality.
