I absolutely love a good female detective book and this one was no exception. I loved the lead character, Natalie Lockhart, and really enjoyed learning about her history and being immersed in her small town in upstate New York.
Natalie followed in her father’s footsteps to become a cop on the Burning Lake Police Force, and work her way up to be their only female detective. She catches a rough case when she arrives at the house of someone she grew up with, only to find they’ve been brutally murdered.
The book has loads of twists and turns, witchcraft, and suspense but I won’t spoil it for you, you’ll just have to read it for yourself.
And do you want to know the best bit? Trace of Evil is the first book in the Natalie Lockhart series, so when you get to the end and still want more (and you will want more) you can actually have it! This book gets all the thumbs up from me!
