Where All The Dead Lie by J. T. Ellison

Taylor had been shot in the head on her last case and was recovering from a brain injury, but that didn't explain why she was seeing ghosts and being so confused...

I got my copy of this book from Edelweiss and Mira for review (thank you).  It will be published in October, so add it to your TBR list.  If you've read others in this series, I know you must be waiting impatiently for this story.

Taylor is still angry with Baldwin for not telling her he had a son.  He might not have been aware of it at the first, but when he didn't tell her right away, she took offense.  She can't discuss it with him now because her voice isn't working.  The doctor insists she's OK physically, so it must be a mental block.

This mistrust is driving a wedge between them and Taylor doesn't know how to stop it.  When Memphis calls and offers her the use of his castle in Scotland (he will be working), she decides to go.  It might not be the smartest thing to put herself around a man who wants her, but she feels she needs some time alone to get herself back together.  Besides, there is psychologist there who can continue her treatment and help her get her voice back again.

I was very impressed by how this author wove his story.  He takes two separate events and weaves them into a final confrontation that will send chills up and down your spine.  There is a dark horse in this group of characters that is pure evil.

The words flow well and I read the book in one evening.  I had to know how it was going to end!  If you want a good thriller with psychological manipulation, this is the book for you.  It's a very good read.

Happy reading.

Once Taylor arrives in Edinburgh, she finds that Memphis, a Detective Inspector with the Metropolitan Police, is in the midst of investigating a series of disappearances: three teenage girls have gone missing in London, and he is in charge of the case. Much of the rest of the tale deals with that investigation, as well as Taylor's attempts at recovery and the complications caused by her relationship with Memphis, a recently widowed man equally mired in grief over his wife's somewhat mysterious death as with his passion for Taylor.
