Summary
With FIELD OF GRAVES, New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison goes back to where it all began...

All of Nashville is on edge with a serial killer on the loose. A madman is trying to create his own end-of-days apocalypse and the cops trying to catch him are almost as damaged as the killer. Field of Graves reveals the origins of some of J.T. Ellison's most famous creations: the haunted Lieutenant Taylor Jackson; her blunt, exceptional best friend, medical examiner Dr. Samantha Owens; and troubled FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin. Together, they race the clock and their own demons to find the killer before he claims yet another victim. This dark, thrilling and utterly compelling novel will have readers on the edge of their seats, and Ellison's fans will be delighted with the revelations about their favorite characters.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ellison offers a prequel to her popular Taylor Jackson and Samantha Owens series (What Lies Behind, 2015). Nashville police lieutenant Jackson is struggling with departmental strife after shooting one of her own detectives in self-defense. She's forced to refocus when a killer stages a Vanderbilt coed's body in the Centennial Park Parthenon. Jackson's best friend, medical examiner Owens, finds perplexing ritualistic evidence: the killer sprinkled the body with herbs, and the young woman's liver showed signs of aconite poisoning. FBI profiler John Baldwin, on self-imposed exile in Nashville, is convinced to join Taylor's team, and he and Taylor wrestle with intense attraction as they work to decipher the killer's motivation and race to find another missing Vanderbilt student. The main draw here for series fans will be the backstory provided about the popular lead characters, but the serial-killer plot itself is unremarkable.--Tran, Christine Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This eighth edition of Ellison's chronicles of Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson is a series prequel, in which Taylor and FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin meet and begin their now long-established relationship. The duo is searching for a lunatic who impregnates and then kills Vanderbilt University students, ritually preparing their corpses. Reader Bean begins the tale using a tense voice to describe Taylor's fatal shooting of a crooked cop bent on homicide. John is haunted too, by a profile mistake that resulted in the deaths of three of his associates. He has lost interest in his job but agrees to help identify the madman, mainly motivated by an immediate attraction to Taylor. She's attracted as well. Her speech is tough but feminine, southern accented, defensive, and troubled, but, once she's been introduced to Baldwin, Bean softens Taylor with the character's newfound curiosity and interest. Ellison interrupts the pair's investigation and romance with snapshots of the addled murderer's grim progress. The bad guy's motivation is bizarre, but he sounds both erudite and arrogant, two traits that might tip the audio audience to his connection to the victims, were the audience not puzzled and distracted by his insane activities.
