The Cold Room (Taylor Jackson #4)
Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashvilleâ€”from the Southern Strangler to the Snow White Killer. But she's never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.
I found myself intrigued by the d ...more
A certain protagonist, The Pretender, who escaped capture in a previous book, is making threats in this book. I hate when this happens in a TV show, and I hate it in books. He's not ...more
It's not that they're bad, per se. It's just that the stories can be so unfocused that it makes for a frustrating reading experience.
Unfortunately, "The Cold Room" is no exception. Starting off with a serial killer who poses his victims after famous works of art is an intriguing staring point. Removing Taylor Jackson for her team and comfort zone as she ...more
Däremot har den här boken sånna konstnärliga drag att man bara måste läsa tills den är slut. En mördande necrofil som lämmnar tillbacka alla sina offer efter konstverk, med en hemlig tvilling han inte ens visste om i Italien- som dessutom också är necromfil!

Comme dans les précédents volets, l'intrigue est toujours aussi bien construite et j'ai retrouvé avec impatience Taylor Jackson et John Baldwin.
Ma seule question: que vais-je bien pouvoir lire dans le métro lorsque j'aurais terminé la série ?
It takes a special writer to be able to delve into the dark places inhabited by the types of serial killer (s) J.T. Ellison writes about. Ms. Ellison does not shy away from or skirt the darkness that motivates and defines the killers in The Cold Room. Their psychology is fascinating and repulsive. The story details are the glue that holds this novel together. This author has an extraordinary talent for describing details in such a way that you "picture" the informatio ...more
