Seeds of Evidence ~ Review

Seeds of Evidence
By Linda J. White

On a windswept island where no murder has ever occurred, someone has started killing....

FBI Special Agent Kit McGovern has come back to the peaceful island of Chincoteague hoping to find the peace she lost when her husband decided their marriage was over.  But when the body of a young boy washes ashore Kit's vacation ends almost before it begins.  D.C. cop David O'Connor offers his assistance though he is trying to distance himself from law enforcement after he is involved in a shooting incident - an incident that he is still recovering from.  

This quiet Virginia island soon becomes the focal point of an investigation that involves more than the murder of a young child.  Someone or something has brought an evil to the island that has people scared to talk.

When several seemingly unrelated incidents start pointing towards a common perpetrator Kit realizes this something she has never before seen.  Human trafficking, drugs, carjacking, and murders, can they determine who is behind it all before it is too late?

Seeds of Evidence is about more than a crime, it deals with the human heart.  Without hope we are all lost. Can Kit and David discover what is keeping them from finding the hope and peace they are both so desperately searching for?  As they learn to let go of the hurt, hate, and fears that they have allowed to take over their lives they discover the love of God.

Seeds of Evidence is heart-pounding excitement in a race against time to save an abducted woman and to find justice for a murdered child.  If you like suspense that will keep you guessing you won't want to miss Seeds of Evidence.  Hope can be found in anything even a tiny seed.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

ABOUT SEEDS OF EVIDENCE

Stressed-out FBI Special Agent Kit McGovern returns to her grandmother’s Chincoteague Island home in search of peace. But when a little boy’s body washes up on the beach, Kit cannot resist throwing herself into the mystery of his murder. Her only clues: the tomato seeds in the Latino boy’s gut, and the acorns in his pockets.
The medical examiner points out that the volume of tomato seeds in the boy’s gut could indicate he was from a farm worker’s family. But the acorns? Kit discovers they’re from a Virginia live oak, not native to the area where the boy was found. Can she use those to identify his origins anyway? And why hasn’t anyone reported him missing?
Kit meets David O’Connor, a D.C. homicide detective in Chincoteague recovering from a shooting incident. She makes it clear she’s not interested in a relationship, but their passion for justice is mutual and they soon forge a partnership to find the boy’s murderer. As plant DNA evidence leads them straight into the dark world of human trafficking, Kit and David wrestle with the depths of human evil, with questions of faith, and with possibilities for hope. “Seeds of Evidence” takes readers on a white-knuckle ride they won’t soon forget.
