Scraps of Evidence is an interesting murder mystery that draws the reader in quickly and doesn’t let go until the end. While different from her novels that depict Amish society, Cameron’s tale does a good job of painting a picture of modern-day St. Augustine, Fla., and the characters who live there. The book’s most notable flaw is the detectives’ naivety to the clues. Otherwise, the foreshadowing is interesting and the story is fluid.

A murder in the small town of St. Augustine has newly promoted detective Tess Villanova and her recently transferred partner, Logan McMillan, on edge. The murder is quickly linked to three previous murders over the past decade, and everyone wants the serial killer caught — especially Tess, whose best friend was the first victim. However, frustrations rise when clues dry up and there are no breaks. As Tess and Logan get to know each other, they work together to catch the killer before he sets his eyes on one of them.
