14


14 by J. T. Ellison ~~


Ten victims, each with pale skin and long dark hair. All have been slashed across the throat, the same red lipstick smeared across their lips.

In the mid-1980s the Snow White Killer terrorized the streets of Nashville, Tennessee. Then suddenly the murders stopped. A letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done.

Now four more bodies are found, marked with his fatal signature. The residents of Nashville fear a madman has returned, decades later, to finish his sick fairy tale. Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson believes the killings are the work of a copycat killer who's even more terrifying. For this monster is meticulously honing his craft as he mimics famous serial murders…proving that the past is not to be forgotten.

Lt. Taylor Jackson is just days away from getting married when the bodies start piling up. Years ago the Snow White Killer left a trail of bodies in Nashville until a note to the police said he was done. Now, more bodies are popping up with the same signature. Has the Snow White Killer come back, and if so, where has he been all this time? Or is it some sick copycat wanting to complete his work? Taylor and her team are determined to take this killer (or killers) down - at any cost. The action never lets up in this book. The writing is solid. The characters stay with you long after you finsih the books. And an ending that will crave you wanting more. Ms. Ellison is definitely making a place for herself in the world of mystery/thriller writers.
