PW Review of THE COLD ROOM Audio Book

"Ellison's fourth Taylor Jackson thriller finds a serial killer murdering young women in both the United States and Europe. Such an international crime brings New Scotland Yard Detective/profiler James Memphis Highsmythe into the investigation, causing an unexpected hitch in homicide detective Jackson's romantic involvement with fiance FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin. But personal feelings or no, the trio must pool their resources to find the serial killer known as the Conductor in the United States and Il Macellaio across the Atlantic, before he can strike again. Joyce Bean is perfectly cast; her narration keeps the book moving at a steady pace and infuses the prose with just the right amount of menace and suspense. Her reading of the killer's chance encounter with a young woman destined to become his next victim is chilling. Even when the writing may be a little over the top at times, Bean's performance is down to the ground solid. A Mira paperback."

I'm so happy to see Joyce Bean getting the recognition she so richly deserves - I have been blown away by her reading of the first four Taylor books! She turns the words on the page into a rich, detailed story, with the perfect inflection. Thanks, Joyce, and thanks, Brilliance!!! (And PW, obviously...)
