  • J.T. Ellison knows how to spin a tale with Taylor Jackson, a tough-as-nails main character who never seems to lack for passion. She finds it in both her professional and personal life. The Cold Room gripped me from the first page, and it didn’t let me go until I had reached the end. The chilling nature of the tale kept me in rapt attention, and while the plot may have seemed a bit farfetched to some, I found it to be both heavily researched and a compelling read.I found myself intrigued by the [...]


  • This is the fourth book in a series, which now feels like it's hit a plateau. There's nothing really exciting, no tension, and a slow pace. Frankly, I felt a little bored and just wanted it over. At the end, there were some loose ends involving the new lieutenant, Taylor's new partner, and a DI from New Scotland Yard.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 [...]


  • Reading J.T. Ellison's Nashville-set mystery series, I always find myself wanting to love the books more than I do when the final page is turned.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 [...]


  • This fourth installment in the Taylor Jackson series is another quick and exciting read! The pacing moves along quite steadily, though this one has an almost different sort of style than some of the previous books in the series. The killer’s perspective is offered early into the novel, making this more of a true thriller in the way it really adds to the excitement. The overall mystery is lessened, but the plot still manages to hold onto a few surprises. Though perhaps most surprising is just h [...]



  • WOW! I just finished The Cold Room. I still haven't caught my breath. That was one amazingly intense story. I read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down.The Cold Room is the fourth book in the Taylor Jackson series. After she was demoted in the previous book, Taylor is trying to deal with being just a rank and file detective again. Her team has been broken up and all working in different parts of Nashville. She has a new partner who has been a detective for all of one month. And she has a ne [...]


  • Due to restructuring of the Nashville Metro Police Department, homicide detective Taylor Jackson’s been demoted from her prior position of lieutenant. If that isn’t bad enough, she’s being pursued by a serial killer called the Pretender. Now another serial killer’s in Nashville, one who abducts young black women, starves them to death and, after performing necrophilia, poses them per scenes from famous paintings. It isn’t long before Jackson’s fiancé, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, [...]


  • I found The Cold Room a bit different than Ellison's first three, and I mean that in a good way. You can feel the writer maturing as her books progress. She has always struck me with her outstanding vocabulary and timing, but her feel for her characters and the level of research seem to have propelled this one to a new height.The first few pages sucked me in, and (SPOILER) really set me up by showing a seemingly normal man who was capable of such a frightening secret existence. And Taylor, as al [...]


  • En bra uppföljare till Judas Kyss- dock inte lika spännande.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!Och sen har vi ju som vanligt allas våran lilla Taylor; lika spännande som alltid, och visst måste man avundas henne för killen, men BU för den andre som stöter p [...]


  • Creepy to the power of ten.The photo finish with the bad guys in Italy feels a bit silly in retrospect, but the bad guys in this one were part of a fascinating group: twins separated at birth.


  • This was a mostly solid mystery. Ellison gives us an unusual crime, committed by an unusual criminal in an unusual way. And, I’m always excited to read a police procedural that isn’t set in New York or southern California. But there were a few pieces that bothered me.One was Memphis. I didn’t quite get his obsession with Taylor, and would have liked a bit more a clue. Also, I didn’t think the reason he was sent to the U.S. was very good — he spent more time tagging along with Taylor an [...]


  • This book creeped me out and gave me chills as I was reading it. In a good way. It creeped me out because I can not imagine what the girls went through to be locked in a glass box and starved to death and then having the killer do horrible things to their bodies after they were dead. It gave me chills to think of this and knowing that someone out there is sick enough to actually do something like this.This is my first novel my Ellison and also my first novel featuring detective Taylor Jackson. I [...]



  • A chilling serial-killer mystery, in which Nashville police detective Taylor Jackson and her fiancé, FBI profiler John Baldwin, must track down the perpetrators of two series of extremely macabre murders, one in Europe and one in the USA. Their lives are further complicated by a Scotland Yard detective called in to help with the investigation, James "Memphis" Highsmythe, who becomes obsessed by Taylor at first sight and is not reticent about showing his feelings toward her.Fast pacing, a riveti [...]


  • Necrophilia aside, I really enjoyed this book. The creepy factor is high, but I liked the personal development in the characters. Taylor demoted to Detective grows the most when she is forced to work with a new partner (I liked him too), but even Baldwin's character gets fleshed out a little more. I'm still not convinced he's the best profiler out there as he always seems to be a step behind Jackson and her basic police work. In this book what shines the most is how many people contribute to the [...]


  • Ellison has written better. I agree with the reviewers who think this book started out really good then fizzled. The premise of the story was different and disturbing and I was expecting a suspenseful mystery. Instead we get a lame love triangle which seems out of place with the story - although this may play out in later books (not sure I'm looking forward to that). We also get the case being very neatly wrapped up in record time. It just seemed too easy, as if the author was rushing to finish [...]


  • Well, what a thriller this book is - another OMG - great story line, very sick and twisted (just the way I like them). Some good twists and turns and conflicts thrown in - J.T. Ellison really knows how to tell a good story and keep you interested!



  • I really enjoyed this one in the series. Back to 5* for me. Book 1 was the same and then 2 and 3 I gave 4*. Still a pretty impressive record from this author. It's a terrific set of stories and this one was a very interesting storyline. It left some hanging parts that will need resolution come book 5 but I'm pretty sure that if you've read the first 4, the same as me, you'll be sticking with the set.There were some very surprising moments in it I hadn't expected in the least and we have a new ad [...]


  • I love the characters of Taylor & Baldwin. Taylor is a LT of a homicide division whose team solves almost all cases. They do not give up. Taylor knows who she is and does not scare easily. She & Baldwin fell in love when he came up from Quantico as a member of the BAU. They make a great team and Baldwin knows it's Taylor's territory and respects her abilities. He let's her lead her team and works as part of the team. A man, Memphis , from New Scotland Yard to assist in their latest case [...]


  • The book begins as Gavin Adler gets home from work, goes into his basement, and communes with the dying girl that he has encased in plexiglass and is slowly starving to death. Once she's dead, he will have sex with her body. Then he will pose her body somewhere. Creepily, he communicates in online chat with other men who like to do the same thing. So it's up to Detective Taylor Jackson and her fiancee Dr John Baldwin to find Gavin and put him away. I like the Taylor Jackson series. She's a great [...]


  • Another great read. The Taylor Jackson series reminds me a lot of the JD Robb series. I adore Taylor and Baldwin is the icing on the cake. Taylor's career is in upheaval and her personal life is at a crossroads. The murders she is investigating are bizarre as well artistic. As she hunts down the killer her personal life is tilted by the introduction of a fellow investigator who flirts with her. While trying to contend with that distraction she has a new partner to train along with a a new Lieute [...]


  • REVIEW OF 35% AUDIOBOOK; FEBRUARY 11, 2017Narrator: Joyce BeanA hit-and-miss series. I liked the previous book, Judas Kiss and thought this installment would be as good. It isn't and I struggled to get this far. Lost the battle and have decided to move on to another author. It's hard to persevere when you don't care for the protagonist.


  • C'est le quatrième livre de la série que je termine et je les enchaîne avec toujours autant de plaisir.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 ?


  • Another excellent story by J T Ellison featuring Taylor Jackson. Ellison deveopls characters that you want to like and they are developed with each additions book. She has a very unique killer in this one and she has done her research. Read J T Ellison. She is an amazing author who never disappoints.


  • The premise of this story seems a little unlikely. But the characters and the procedure hold the reader in and make the general premise almost work. Good characters and procedural detail. Again, just a little too much plot cuteness and coincidence.





  • AN INTENSE, COMPELLING READ!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 [...]
