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. As the killer spirals out of control, everyone involved must face a horrible truth - that the purest evil is born of private lies.

Synopsis

All the Pretty Girls by J. T. Ellison

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.

Reviews

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

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

'An impressive and arresting thriller.' Publishers Weekly
