EDGE OF BLACK Gets A Top Pick from Romantic Times!

This is the wonderful news I was celebrating last week - a Top Pick from Romantic Times for EDGE OF BLACK! I'm so thrilled - here's the review, and it's mind-blowing.

Ellison delivers another outstanding crime thriller that plays on many of a reader's emotions: fear, love, hate and shock among them. It's obvious from the first page that this is a master at work. Samantha is such a great character that Ellison can be forgiven for not writing another Taylor Jackson. Fans of Michael Connelly or Patricia Cornwell should consider Ellison essential reading.

SUMMARY: Dr. Samantha Owens is adjusting to life in D.C. and away from the tragedy that killed her family. She enjoys teaching, and one morning in class a young woman has problems breathing and collapses. She rushes her to the hospital with the help of a couple of students and discovers, to her horror, that there are others there with the same symptoms. The only thing the victims have in common is that they were all riding the Metro that morning. But what appears to be a terrorist attack has a mastermind behind it with a more sinister motive. (MIRA, Nov., 368 pp., $14.99) 

EDGE OF BLACK will be available November 13, 2013 from your favorite bookseller. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Oh, my goodness. The good news keeps on coming. Just got this wonderful review from Romantic Times - 4 1/2 Stars and a Top Pick! Thank you, RT!

"Ellison's latest focuses on medical examiner Samantha Owens, and readers will quickly realize they don't miss Taylor Jackson at all. A gut-wrenching tale that rings with emotional resonance and heart amidst the thrills, A DEEPER DARKNESS ranks as Ellison's best book yet. Her amazing streak of great thrillers continues."

So Samantha flies to Washington, D.C., to run a second forensic examination of Eddie's body. His distrustful widow and a detective attracted to Samantha add to the intrigue. Can she overcome her demons to solve the case while managing to stay out of the killer's crosshairs?
