TRACE

Forensic investigator Reilly Steel, Quantico-trained and California-born and bred, imagined Dublin to be a far cry from bustling San Francisco, a sleepy backwater where she can lay past ghosts to rest and start anew.

She's arrived in Ireland to drag the Garda forensics team into the 21st-century plus keep tabs on her Irish-born father who's increasingly seeking solace in the bottle after a past tragedy.
But a brutal serial killer soon puts paid to that. A young man and woman are found dead in a hotel room, the gunshot wounds on their naked bodies suggesting a suicide pact. But as Reilly and the team dig deeper, and more bodies are discovered, they soon realize that a twisted murderer is at work, one who seeks to upset society's norms in the most sickening way imaginable...

    Not recommended for those with a weak stomach.

    I would not recommend this for a book club. It had a good story line, but kind of gory with the murders. A mystery to the end.

    Loved this book! This book had me hooked from the very beginning. Definitely a great read for crime lovers, with surprising twists yet believable characters. It was hard to put down and took me only three days to finish. Well done. I look forward to the others in the series.

    I see that the TV rights have been optioned--would make a great TV series with a smack-you-between-the-eyes pilot!

    I found the story of Reilly Steel, CSI to be well written and very suspenseful. You have an American forensic specialist, who takes the opportunity to move to Ireland to be closer to her father, who has not been accepted yet by the police officers that she is suppose to be helping to solve crimes in Dublin. The head of the department has gone on a long vacation and a serial killer begins begins his reign of terror in Dublin. Steel, and her young team, are able to tie the murders together but the clues that are being left behind make no sense. As the killings continue they seem to be aimed at Steel. What has someone learned about her past? Why is she being pulled into this case in ways that she does not want to be pulled?

    A very good mystery and a new and interesting CSI to add to the reading list. Ms. Hill has done and excellent job of creating a book that is hard to put down. I look forward to reading the further investigations of Reilly Steel.

    Good for light reading

    Has a good, interesting story. The mystery was interesting but not so difficult to figure out so I was not completely blindsided by the ending. Not the most well written book i have ever read, but it was nice for some light reading while running the elliptical at the gym. I will be reading the bext in the series!

    Good

    Really enjoyed this book. The plot was well written and the suspense was kept up until the end. There was a plot twist I didn't see coming, and it was a doozy! There are a few errors here and there but they were sparse enough not to detract from the story. Well worth the read!

    Intriguing introduction to a medical crime series

    Reilly Steel is a FBI trained crime scene technologist from America that has moved to Dublin, Ireland to modernize the crime lab, somewhat against the protests of many of the men already in the law enforcement department. When trace evidence from seemingly unrelated crime scenes begins to link murders together, Reilly suspects a serial killer.
    This first installment in the CSI Reilly Steel series was a little rough. Reilly is really the only character that really gets developed very fully. However, the plot twists kept me guessing all the way through. The book is also full of unexpected humor, and I found the characters likeable enough to keep reading the series.

    I recommend this book, the characters are well formed and strong. The story line is easy to follow with the element of surprise that I so enjoyed. This is the first in a series but will stand alone for any reader. Th only trouble I had was in the editing but did not distract from the story. I plan to read more in this series.

    Good story, but.....

    .....the excessive spelling and grammar errors plus so many dropped words were distracting and annoying. Although a good and potentially great storyteller, this author needs proofreaders and a good editor.
