"Fans of intelligently written, intricately crafted thrillers should definitely check out J.T. Ellison's latest Taylor Jackson novel, 14.

“Uh oh” I thought when I read that here was another forensic pathologist. Another Patricia Cornwell or Kathy Reichs? Well, I have to say, definitely not! Admittedly her job is the same, but there the similarity really ends. Owens has suffered much tragedy in her life and has become OCD as a result – I must admit that One Mississippi, Two Mississippi, Three… was a little wearing at times, but it appears to work for her. Called upon to help the mother of a former lover who has been shot is hard enough in itself, but it gradually becomes clear that this is no straightforward drive by shooting, and the story line really takes off at this point, becoming more intriguing by the page. It is a complex story involving friendly fire and a rape that materially affects relationships in a very close knit Ranger Group.
All the characters are believable and the descriptions are well coloured. The denouement is very exciting and contains even more twists and turns than one might have been expecting. Definitely worth a read, and I shall have a look at the next in the series.

If you like your murder mysteries with less violence and gore... but enjoy high suspense with a hint of romance...J. T. Ellison is the gal for you!

A DEEPER DARKNESS is the first Samantha Owens, Tennessee medical examiner, thriller by Ellison (who has written a bunch of mysteries featuring Sam's friend, a homicide detective in Nashville). Samantha's a workaholic professional trying to forget the day a Tennessee flood took her husband and children. She has a great team who understands her aversion for performing autopsies on drowned victims and her incessant hand-washing.

At the beginning of the tale, we meet retired Ranger Eddie Donovan. It is the day of his death. Eddie has served three tours in Afghanistan and has retired, sick of "nation building," and is working as a security consultant in Washington, DC. He's also taking a day off to be with his wife and daughters....until he gets a call that summons him to his death. Eddie Donovan was a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment Bravo Company in Afghanistan, a proud and loyal member of a band of five "brothers" who served together: King (Perry Fisher), Doc (Donovan), Shaky Guy (William Everett), Mutant (Alexander Whitfield), and Jackel (Harold Croswell). And there's also a young friendly woman with the unit, Maggie Lyons.

After Eddie's death, Samantha receives a call from his mother to perform a second autopsy. The police are calling the murder a carjacking gone wrong. Sam goes to DC...renews her friendship with her former lover's mother and meets the wife. Along with a gruff detective, she discovers that of the five band of brothers, only one is still living. And that Maggie Lyons is on the run. There's a hint of friendly fire, an illegitimate daughter, an Army coverup...the pages are really turning.

I like this author, have read a view of the Taylor/Baldwin books which are very enjoyable, I therefore expected to feel the same about this. Unfortuanately the character was not as charasmatic as her other characters and I didnt really get into the book like I usually do. It was a good read but somewhat disappointing.
