Traces of Guilt (An Evie Blackwell Cold Case) by Dee Henderson

This was another great story by Dee Henderson. Evie Blackwell is an Illinois State Police detective who is joining a Task Force ordered by the Governor to take a fresh look at Cold Cases in each county. Her first pilot project is on two cold cases in Carin County where Gabe Thane is the local sheriff. Other friends and family are characters in the book, some of which we have met in other Dee Henderson books. The Cold Cases involve a local Sheriff’s Deputy and his family who went missing and a little girl who was kidnapped from a hotel when her family was passing through town.

I love the way Dee Henderson builds on the facts and events to the ending conclusion. These stories are fascinating and keep me wanting to read all day or all night until I find out what happened. She keeps me guessing throughout but satisfied with the conclusion.

If you like this genre, I highly recommend this author! If you are like me after you read one you won’t be satisfied till you own the whole collection and when you finish reading those you will be waiting anxiously for Ms. Henderson’s next book.

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a fair and honest review. If they had not offered it to be reviewed, it would have been the first thing in my Amazon cart the minute it came out!
