Descrizione

The shot to the head didn't kill Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson.

But it will crack her psyche and take her to the very edge.

In her showdown with the murderous Pretender, a bullet taken at close range severed the connection between Taylor's thoughts and speech. Effectively mute, there's no telling if her voice will ever come back. Trapped in silence, she is surrounded by ghosts - of the past, of friendships and trusts lost...of a lost faith in herself and her motives that night.

When Memphis Highsmythe offers Taylor his home in the Scottish Highlands to recuperate, her fiancé can't refuse her excitement, no matter his distrust of the man. At first, Memphis's drafty and singularly romantic castle seems the perfect place for healing. But shortly the house itself surrounds her like a menacing presence. As Taylor's sense of isolation and vulnerability grows, so, too, does her grip on reality.

PTSD. Pills. Ghosts. Grudges.

Someone or something is coming after Taylor. But is she being haunted by the dead...or hunted by the living?

    Loved, loved, loved this book. I didn't read this in sequence. I just dove it. Loved the setting, the snow, the characters, the female friendships, the use of technology. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Almost didn't get off my train a few times. Well done, JT! Thank you for a fascinating story.

    "WHERE ALL THE DEAD LIE" BY J.T. ELLISONAmazing, amazing, amazing! This book pulled me right in and kept a firm grip on me all the way through. The story has so much to offer, at least 3 different mysteries that lead to a grand finale of one so in depth you'll never believe it! J.T. Nelson is a fantastic writer and after this I will be looking up more of their work. You don't want to miss this one and trust me, around this time of the year this is one that will keep you on edge and keep you so wound up you'll want to scream! Taylor is just starting to piece her life back together after taking down a serial killer know as the "Pretender." Having been shot in the head and at the door of death, she makes a remarkable recovery and decides to take a trip to Scotland to spend some alone time in a friends castle. She soon starts seeing things that lead her on a journey not only to find her voice again, but to find out the truth about what happened to her friends wife. In the meantime her fiancé' and best friend are dealing with their own criminal investigations, all on a smaller scale but just as equally exciting! Do yourself a favor and pick up this book, there is no doubt you will enjoy it!Kitty Bullard / Great Minds Think Aloud

    This was one of my favorite Taylor Jackson books.
  • (3/5)
    Detective Taylor Jackson because of the tragic experiences described in the previous book, loses her voice. The fact that she can not go back to work and the tense situation between her and her fiancé, Baldwin, boosts her frustration. So when the Scottish aristocrat Memphis who is half in love with her offers her a trip to his castle, Taylor agrees without hesitation.

    What I definitely didn’t like are some lengthy, occupying almost half of the book, non-criminal threads. I nearly abandoned the book because of the excess of the ‘romantic’ threads. Anyway, the issue crime is instant. I have the impression that the author, describing the emotional turmoil of heroes, suddenly discovered that she writes a crime story and she packed all the action in several chapters so the novel did not get too long. The idea of the intrigue allows for more extensive descriptions of the atmosphere of terror and madness, throwing suspicion on one person and another or, finally, a long process of investigation.

    I also didn’t like the actions taken by Taylor in her personal life. Her behaviour toward Memphis is unfair to Baldwin. Taylor is aware of the intentions of Memphis, but deliberately does not set clear boundaries in their relationship. She also does not have any remorse when she thinks she betrayed Baldwin. For her this is just a problem that Baldwin must deal with.

    The plot is largely unreal. However, if someone does not mind the solutions like some fake deaths and children changed at birth, can reach for this book. It would make a wonderful movie. There are some handsome and rich men in love with a cop with a complicated past, the castle standing on the heaths and secrets from the past.

    Taylor Jackson is more than a police officer. But being not only an officer but a leader has become more to her than she realizes. Taylor faces her inner demons while recuperating from a recent gunshot wound in Where All the Dead Lie by J. T. Ellison.Taylor is almost completely recuperated from her physical trauma, but emotionally she is still wounded. She experiences guilt and shame that she wasn't there in time to save her friend from the torture that resulted in her miscarriage. She bears guilt that she couldn't foresee that the last madman she hunted, The Pretender, would dare go after her friends and coworkers. Taylor is also feeling quite a bit of anger and jealousy after finding out that her fiancé, John Baldwin, fathered a child with one of his former coworkers. Admittedly the child was put up for adoption and John was never notified of the pregnancy or birth, but Taylor resents the mere idea that he slept with that woman. Now when she is at her most vulnerable, she is unable to even voice her anger, shame or sorry. Is it just post-traumatic stress disorder that has taken her voice away or is it much more?In an effort to deal with her swirling emotions, Taylor knows she must get away for a while. Enter James "Memphis" Highsmythe with an offer for Taylor to visit his ancestral home in Scotland. He assures her that he will not be in residence and that she can continue her recent therapy with a family friend's wife. Taylor knows that Memphis has a "thing" for her and their flirtation has been benign up til now, but will it continue to be benign given her current emotions? Taylor goes off with, more or less, John's blessings, to Scotland to rest and fully recuperate. But has she gone from the frying pan into the fire? While she deals with her inner demons, she fears that she is losing touch with reality. Can Taylor handle the demons of her past while fighting the demons in her present? Are these present demons a figment of her imagination or is she once again in danger? Ms. Ellison has presented a somewhat softer and definitely more fragile and introspective Taylor Jackson in Where All the Dead Lie. I felt true sympathy for all that she is going through but has difficulty giving voice to as she heals. Taylor relies more on John because of her injuries while she also tries to push him away. She knows that she loves him, but she has that twinge of jealousy over his previous "relationship." She is also conflicted over her emotional attachment to Memphis. The conflicts in this story are at the forefront of each relationship Taylor must reflect upon and deal with: her friendship with Sam, her romance with John, and her friendship/flirtation with Memphis. I'm glad to report that the kick-butt, take charge Taylor emerges at the end. She has suffered unimaginable horrors, physically and emotionally, and emerged a stronger person. Ms. Ellison provides a series that gets better with each installment, and Where All the Dead Lie is no exception. This is a great fast-paced suspense read.

    From my blogJT Ellison is a great author when writing about serial killers. This is book 7, the end story of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed So Close the Hand of Death and feel like these 2 read together complete a great story. I found this one to be very different from what I expect of JT, no serial killer involvement, only the after affects of almost dying from the hands of one. Initially I felt the book was all over the place, was it a mystery, romance or ghost story. I find many story lines are intertwined and create the perfect puzzle but this one felt odd to me. Then, we get the heart pounding race to the end, total edge of your seat greatness. The book went from an almost 3 to immediate 4 star for me, a great Psychological Suspense read. JT may have went for playing with the readers mind with not allowing us to know where it was going but I have to say I don't think it was executed well but it was greatly pulled together at the end. Sam was dealing with Post-traumatic stress disorder and the way the counselors assisted her was extremely interesting and set the scene in many ways. I did enjoy not knowing what was reality or possible hallucinations. Quotes I enjoyedAt least Sam was getting a chance to heal; her wounds were hidden, on the inside. Taylor had to parade around town with her scars, and without her voice.This was what she wanted, right? For him to apologize. To offer to make things right. They were better as a team. Together they could conquer anything. But apart, they were two lonely icebergs, drifting silently toward a certain doom.She felt the nimble touch again, more familiar this time, then it stopped and she was able to breathe and then sit up. She turned on the light, hands at her throat, gasping for air. Her heart was pounding out of control.. What in the hell had just happened?

    As Taylor recovers physically from the injuries she sustained at the hands of the ultimate madman serial killer known as the Pretender (So Close The Hand of Death) she finds her mental health not healing as well. She fights between feeling betrayed by Baldwin’s secrets to quilt over the harm to Sam and other’s she believes she’s responsible for. She’s been offered solace from a place she’s not sure she should trust, but it’s either run to Memphis Highsymthe or run screaming from all her demons. With more reasons to go than to stay she finds herself on the bonnie Scottish shores only to find more than she bargained for in more ways than one. JT Ellison knows how to keep her audience not just perched on the edge of their seats but nearly falling off them from the tension. We’ve seen the ultimate warrior and strong Taylor in the past and now we’re exposed to a very vulnerable, and much more insecure side. Her story line is exquisite as she shows us her talent front and center where she deals with the ghosts that haunt Taylor and at the same time slipping in another all together different unbelievable plot point that JT is such as expert at. Her characters all deserve awards and not only the good guys because her bad guys could go into the Hall of Fame of evil doers. Her dialogue always impresses me but she goes above and beyond in that aspect too and as you read the novel you will see the not so subtle changes from the US to the UK speak she uses, in fact I can almost hear that Scottish Brogue rolling off the characters tongues. Taylor is the ultimate complex character and one that after all these years I’ve never tired of and with Baldwin as her counterpoint they steal the show.Fans of Lisa Gardner and Lisa Jackson will love this series, these characters and this phenomenal author. If this is your first journey with Taylor it does okay as a stand a lone but the backstory is especially important to this novel and reading the previous in the series will answer the many questions that you’ll have. JT thanks once again for shortness of breath, pounding heart and racing pulse, I’m never the same after finishing one of your books, but that’s a good thing.
