J.T. Ellison Takes Us Into A Deeper Darkness That Doesn’t Disappoint

J.T. Ellison Takes Us Into A Deeper Darkness That Doesn’t Disappoint

The intrigue begins from the word ‘go’ in this novel as an ex-Army Ranger, Eddie Donovan, begins his day by having a joyous time with his wife and two daughters on ‘The Mall’ in Washington. Unfortunately, he is called away by his employer and ends up dead: a victim of a vicious carjacking. Now Eddie’s mother doesn’t believe that what the police report says is true. She is completely convinced that the ‘carjacking’ was simply an excuse that his employers had given to the public.

 

Calling on an old girlfriend of her son’s, Samantha Owens, Eddie’s mother begs her to solve her son’s mysterious death. Samantha is the Head Medical Examiner for the State of Tennessee, and Eddie’s mother wants nothing more than for her to come to D.C. and perform a second autopsy to make sure that nothing was missed.

 

Samantha has her own problems. She lost her husband and children to the Tennessee floods and has since turned into a workaholic. However, this one phone call from the past puts her on the road to recovery, as she heads to Washington to help her former friends.

Sam is a very sharp doctor, and although the carjacking story was the one ‘bought’ by the public, her autopsy tells a whole different story: Eddie definitely was murdered, but not for his car.

 

Soon Sam finds herself confronting another death of a person that once meant a great deal to her, and discovers notes that lead her to Xander, an ex-soldier who’s returned from Afghanistan with information that could bring the ‘situations’ that happened in that country home to America.

 

This book is a definite one-day read that covers some truly horrendous facts that happened in the past. But following Samantha and Xander, along with Xander’s dog, Thor, is one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. The writing in this book is ‘A-one,’ and hopefully this author is planning to gift the world with other Samantha Owens’ stories for a long time to come.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody!
