FALLEN ANGEL BY TROY TAYLOR
The Tragic True Story of the Black Dahlia

Los Angeles. Home to Hollywood, sandy beaches, orange groves and movie studios. It's been called the City of Angels. But there is one lost angel in black that has been haunting the city's boulevards of broken dreams for decades. Her name is Elizabeth Short and in 1946, she came to Hollywood to make it big and to see her name up in lights. Instead, after her severed body was found in an empty lot, she was immortalized as the "Black Dahlia," more famous in death than she ever was in life. Despite the efforts of hundreds of police officers and countless hours of investigation, her brutal murder was never solved.

What really happened to the Black Dahlia? Was she murdered by a madman, as city officials wanted everyone to believe, or was she the unlucky pawn in a game between corrupt cops, mob bosses and the illicit vice rings that ruled the city? Her tangled trail of death took her into a labyrinth of nightclubs, casinos, brothels and call-girl operations that catered to the Los Angeles elite and she never made it out alive. In this compelling book, Troy Taylor traces the last days of Beth Short's life and reveals the wild mix of theories and conspiracies that have emerged since her death in January 1947. Find out who he believes killed the Black Dahlia and what really happened in the aftermath of her murder. You'll never look at this terrifying story in the same way again!

    Secrets, safety and near seclusion are the mortar with which Gen

    Secrets, safety and near seclusion are the mortar with which Geneva Talmadge has fabricated a life. Having lived and worked all over the world in areas where the commodities are war, perfidy and poverty, Geneva is an exceptional and unusual protagonist. Brought into a life of danger, bomb making and terrorists as a young girl, after the death of her mother, Geneva doesn't just trail behind her father and his associates. Geneva excels; she's a natural at munitions and bomb building. In fact, she surpasses her father in the ability to create bombs of piercing precision and beautiful artistry of design. A life full of so much danger and secrecy could have hardened Geneva Talmadge but she isn't the jaded war damaged individual that she could have been. However she is not unscathed. Geneva has built an emotional fortress around herself fully equipped with snares designed to protect herself from the greatest danger, a heart fragmented by rejection and love lost.

    Then Thomas Coltrane comes into her life, storming the ramparts of her defenses. There is no gentle seduction, no slow attraction, and no long entrance ramp. Thomas and Geneva's first meeting is metaphor for the battle Thomas will wage to circumvent her protective countermeasures.

    Thomas is marred from an extremely successful career as a litigator. His blade sharp skills have led to his notoriety in the courtroom and his love life fodder for the tabloids but he has grown weary and lonely of an emotionally unfulfilling life. Decision made, he returns to his childhood home for a simpler way of life when he literally collides into Geneva. Thomas goes after Geneva with the same exactness that he unleashed on his courtroom adversaries.

    But years of hiding have left Geneva guarded and reticent. She is a paradox. Her life experiences and skills could have, should have led her to be one tough cookie. But she isn't. Though baptized into a world of mayhem and calloused mercenaries, Geneva managed to retain a fragile innocence, a delicate vulnerability, that Thomas must traverse to win her heart and trust.

    Fallen Angel is a passion laced story that is both captivating and frustrating in a good way. Laura Taylor drives the story, first gear, second gear; the story is paced perfectly to engage the reader to turn the page. For Laura Taylor fans and those new to this series, you will not be disappointed. Geneva and Thomas' story is a soft susurration that compels the reader to root for them when old scars and reflexive defenses threaten to detonate, ending their relationship before it's truly born. You won't be dissatisfied. Laura Taylor's, Fallen Angel, has it all, love, steam and more.
