Sarah Broadhurst's view...

August 2010 Debut of the Month.

A complex tale of two plots, the main one of the serial killer the Strangler, and then one of the serial rapist the Rainman, with lots of incidental sub-plots to titillate. It slows up a bit in the middle, often a fault of first novels, but there is real potential here with the first three in the series coming very close together.

Comparison: Ingrid Black, Beverly Barton, John Verdon.

If you like J. T. Ellison you might also like to read books by Alex Kava, Kathy Reichs and Erica Spindler.

Synopsis

All the Pretty Girls by J. T. Ellison

This is an electrifying debut packed with hold-your-breath suspense. When a local girl falls prey to a sadistic serial killer, Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson and her lover, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, find themselves in a joint investigation pursuing a vicious murderer. The Southern Strangler is slaughtering his way through the Southeast, leaving a gruesome memento at each crime scene - the prior victim's severed hand. Ambitious TV reporter Whitney Connolly is certain the Southern Strangler is her ticket out of Nashville; she's got a scoop that could break the case. She has no idea how close to this story she really is - or what it will cost her. As the killer spirals out of control, everyone involved must face a horrible truth - that the purest evil is born of private lies.

Reviews

'A taut, striking debut. Mystery fiction has a new name to watch.' - John Connolly

'A terrific lead character, terrific suspense, terrific twists... a completely convincing debut.' - Lee Child

'An impressive and arresting thriller.' - Publishers Weekly
