$1.99 ebook sale: ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS

ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS, the first book in my Taylor Jackson series, is on sale for $1.99! Check out this heart-racing, fan favorite.

About the book:

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.

7.26.16 - It's Time to devour the next Taylor Jackson novel


I’m so excited to share more Taylor and Baldwin with you!  

How often do you get the chance to marry your love of murder and mayhem with the great poets? I’ve done just that in ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS, the story of a reluctant killer who grows to love his chosen profession and terrorizes the Southeastern United States with Nashville Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson and FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin hot on his trail. The Southern Strangler leaves presents at his crime scenes, love poems by the greats—Wordsworth, Blake, Coleridge, Yeats—and the previous victim’s severed hand. When he passes through Nashville, leaving behind a body, hand and poem, Taylor Jackson catches the case, and the chase is on.

With a spiffy new cover and a super-low price, I know you'll enjoy visiting (or revisiting!) this book.

Get ready for Poesie des Todes, the debut thriller form J.T. Ellison, translated by Ivonne Senn.

"Oh, all die hübschen Mädchen ... nun sind sie tot."

Der Southern Strangler zieht seine blutige Spur durch den Südosten der USA. An jedem Leichenfundort lässt er ein grauenhaftes Souvenir zurück: die abgetrennte Hand des vorherigen Opfers.

Was für Lieutenant Taylor Jackson zu einer Mördersuche wird, die sie in die tiefsten menschlichen Abgründe führt, bedeutet für die Fernsehreporterin Whitney Connolly das Ticket in die große, weite Welt. Denn sie hat Informationen, die den Fall lösen könnten - der Mörder schickt ihr Gedichte per E-Mail! Diese Nachrichten bringen die Polizei auf die Spur des Killers, und bald schon können sie ihn verhaften. Da geht auf Whitneys Computer ein weiteres Gedicht ein.

"Eine großartige Heldin, großartige Spannung, großartige Wendungen ... kurz, ein komplett überzeugendes Debüt." Lee Child, New York Times-Bestsellerautor

"Alles, was man von einem spannenden Thriller erwartet." Allison Brennan, Autorin von "Fear No Evil - Rache wird dich treffen"
