Eleri and Donovan are seamlessly developed within the tapestry of story that keeps you turning the pages. They possess a fascinating mix of strengths and weaknesses that make their harrowing march toward truth breathtaking and plausible. This author does a masterful job weaving complex forensic science and fanciful fringe science. The blurring of the line keeps you on the edge as you take on the mission. You will feel everything. This book pulls you in. The NightShade Forensic Files could only be written by someone with solid forensic expertise and a love for the fringe from where all science emerges. Bravo A.J. Scudiere!
