By Brett H #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on July 10 2012
Format: Paperback
Burn Out is the first in the Rachel Scott series. Rachel runs Florida Omni Search which she founded following the kidnapping of her own daughter, Mallory. This organisation looks for missing people, on this occasion Samantha, a young married woman with two daughters who is a fire fighter. She has gone missing during a blaze, with the only trace of her being her helmet left in the parking lot.

I preferred this book to Asylum Harbor, the second Rachel Scott book. This story was much more evenly paced rather than the frenetic action in the other book, particularly towards the climax which stretched credibility. In this book the chapters are headed with a timeline - date and time, so that the reader is in no doubt as to the time scale the action is taking place in. This would have helped a lot with Asylum Harbor.

Some of the tension is taken out of this tale as it is quite clear whodunit in the first half of the book. However, the interest then switches to how, and possibly if, Sam is going to be rescued. At the end there are one or two loose ends left for the author to pick up in the future. This is very short - about 180 pages - and most readers will get through it very quickly, particularly as the chapters are very short which keeps you reading. Overall an interesting story, and fairly light reading.

HASH(0x9ecfbc00) out of 5 stars Great Thriller! April 3 2011
By Michelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great story from a new writer -- it was one of those that kept you turning the pages! I'm from near where this story takes place, and she really captures the feel of the area. It's reminiscent of Sue Grafton's novels, so if you're a fan of hers, I think you'll like this book, too. Lots of twists, turns and surprises. I hope we see more from Traci Hohenstein!

HASH(0x9eb11bac) out of 5 stars Great Debut Thriller April 4 2011
By Naomi B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to be honest...this book shocked the heck out of me. With several things going on prior to its' release date, I honestly thought the book was going to be a dud. IT WASN'T. The story is well written and the premise for the story is excellent. It is a short read...170 pages readable material so I am able to "pound it out" in a couple of hours. But an excellent first publication from a debut author...4.5 stars!

The thing that I like most about this book is that the author was able to weave a fantastic mystery with relatively clean language and little to no sex scenes...that to me is talent.

HASH(0x9eb11f6c) out of 5 stars Great new thriller from debut author April 4 2011
By Lyn Meadows - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow. This is a great new book by a debut author. At just 170 pages it is a quick read. At first I was afraid that would limit the story, but it definitely did not. I was surprised and pleased that this story included everything that I would expect from a much longer mystery/thriller. The author does a great job of letting pieces of the story out slowly, keeping the reader's interest. The story definitely includes enough action to keep you turning pages, and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. In addition Traci Hohenstein's characters are well developed and interesting. I love that the main protagonist runs a missing person investigation service. That is a fresh approach for mystery thrillers, as is using firefighting as a backdrop. I don't know if this book will be part of a series, but just think of the possibilities presented by using missing persons as a theme. And if further stories were as good as this one, I would jump on them quickly.

While I read many different genres, mysteries have been a favorite of mine since high school when I discovered Agatha Christie, and thrillers a fave since Mary Higgins Clark came on the scene. This book holds up with the best of them, IMO. It gets 4.5 stars from me, and I look forward to reading more from this debut author. 4.5 stars from me.

HASH(0x9eb12528) out of 5 stars Fab thriller! May 23 2011
By Sibel Hodge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
After the disappearance of her daughter, Mallory, Rachel forms a missing person organization and is quickly on the hunt for a firefighter who has gone missing in suspicious circumstances. Where is Sam? Is she dead? And if not, how did she escape from a collapsed building with no one noticing?

This is a captivating story that will have you dying to turn the pages, and a must read for fans of Lisa Gardner. Traci Hohenstein has weaved together a great mystery/thriller, and I hope there's going to be another in the series. Strong female characters, a hint of romance, an intriguing plot, and a missing person. It's got everything you want for an engrossing novel!

HASH(0x9ecb36b4) out of 5 stars Don't waste your time Sept. 12 2011
By J. Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the most poorly written books I have ever tried to read. It appears that it wasn't proofread, for one thing. I don't have very high expectations from the Kindle 99-cent store, just looking for entertainment, but this one is absolutely awful, to the point of being painful to read. Plot is okay, story line is inconsistent, dis-jointed, and would seem to have been written by an 8th-grader, at best. Come to think of it, my daughter wrote better stories when she was 10.
