A sneak peek to where it all began. This might have been technically her first novel by Ellison but she shows talent right from the beginning.

J.T. Ellison takes readers back to the genesis of her award winning Taylor Jackson series with a brilliantly delicious dark twisted tale of murder and madness. Starting with a huge bang from Taylor’s glock not a moment or emotion is wasted as JT spins her wonderful crime drama web giving her audience a perfect fly on the wall observation. Her eloquent prose like narrative and timely injection of humor enhances her cop-speak no-nonsense dialogue and lightens the dark content. Fans will get a look back and new fans a first look at her amazing, unforgettable stable of stars and co-stars. JT has amazed me with every novel and this one is no different and I can’t wait to see where she takes me next! Lieutenant Taylor Jackson is still reeling from repercussions from a sticky professional situation that’s got her on edge and out of sorts, when she’s handed a vicious murder case. A female Vanderbilt student is found dead, ceremoniously posed naked at the Parthenon in Centennial Park. While she and her team start digging for clues another female Vanderbilt student’s body is found. Suddenly all Taylor’s previous dilemmas have to take a backseat to what she and her team are hoping is not but could be a serial killer preying on Nashville coeds. And to make matters worse now she’s got to babysit some burnt out feeb too. Just Perfect!

STARS Field of Graves is a good title. There are a lot of murders in this police detective story. This is book 8 in the Taylor Jackson series. It takes us back to when Taylor meets John Baldwin. So J.T. Ellison fans will love it. New fans can easily pick it up and meet the characters. Lieutenant Taylor Jackson is head of her unit that gets the cases no can solve or harder ones. She gets attacked in her own home and has to kill someone. She is haunted by nightmares. She is a good cop. Dr. Samantha Owens is the medical examiner and Taylor;s best friend. FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin. He feels guilty for surviving when his team did not. He is giving up. Someone has killed a young women. and left her to be found naked. Taylor has a feeling that this won't be the last murder. She is determined to find and stop him. This is not a light read. It is a good police detective novel. You can feel the tension mounting as more and more it becomes a race to stop the killer. I like to read books by J.T. Ellison. Her stories work. Parts of this story was hard to understand, but the killer was not rational either. I was given this novel to read by NetGalley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give a honest review of Field of Graves.

T. J. Ellison takes us back to the beginning of Homicide Lt. Taylor Jackson. For those of you who have not read this particular series, I would absolutely recommend starting with FIELD OF GRAVES and then reading the series. If you have read the series, then sit back and enjoy this excellent edition. Working out of Nashville, Tennessee, Taylor Jackson is just returning to work after forced time off. She inadvertently ran across a group of dirty cops and before she could report it, one of them attacked her and she shot and killed him in self defense. She's been cleared of all charges, but she's still struggling with panic attacks and nightmares. Today, Taylor is charged with the investigation of the death of a college student. They barely identify her when another body of a college student is found. No rhyme, no reason and no apparent connection between the victims. Autopsies (this is where the reader is introduced to Dr. Samantha Owens, ME) show that they both ingested a rare poison. Taylor's boss brings in former FBI Profiler Dr. John Baldwin on a consultation-only basis. John is battling his own demons and he hasn't quite decided if he wants to continue living. As Nashville becomes concerned with a serial killer on the loose, another college student goes missing. I've been a fan of this series for several years and I love the characters. The author has humanized them .... given them flaws and warts. Following this series shows the reader how they have grown. They stumble now and then, but seem to always get back on their feet to become stronger than they were. It was really fascinating to see the beginning of these characters ..... The crime mystery is finely drawn. So easy to get lost when you're in this world of Ellison. Following the clues along with the detectives will leave you breathless as they race to save his latest victim before its too late. Many thanks to the author/ and to Libby Fischer Hellmann who interviewed J. T. Ellison and furnished an Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
