As a medical examiner, Samantha Owens knows her job is to make a certain sense of death with crisp methodology and precision instruments.But the day the Tennessee floods took her husband and children, the light vanished from Sam's life. She has been pulled into a suffocating grief no amount of workaholic ardor can penetrate—until she receives a peculiar call from Washington, D.C.On the other end of the line is an old boyfriend's mother, asking Sam to do a second autopsy on her son. Eddie Donovan is officially the victim of a vicious carjacking, but under Sam's sharp eye the forensics tell a darker story. The ex-Ranger was murdered, though not for his car.Forced to confront the burning memories and feelings about yet another loved one killed brutally, Sam loses herself in the mystery contained within Donovan's old notes. It leads her to the untouchable Xander, a soldier off-grid since his return from Afghanistan, and then to a series of brutal crimes stretching from that harsh mountainous war zone to this nation's capital. The tale told between the lines makes it clear that nobody's hands are clean, and that making sense of murder sometimes means putting yourself in the crosshairs of death.

Keeping in mind I'm a huge fangirl of JT Ellison...you know how people say, "Man that so-and-so gets better with every book." Well in JT's case it's true. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her Taylor Jackson novels so approached this one with a bit of reserve but Taylor's BFF has always been one of my fave characte...
Unfortunately my first and last J. T. Ellison's book. One of the worst vooks I'be ever read. It was a chore to finish it. I was truly curious how she would tie all the threads together in the book to a satisfying conclusion (at least that). I wish... It was truly hilarious the way (in a bad sense) s...
I have not read any other J.T. Ellison books before this one, even though they have been on my TBR list for a while. I love a good mystery and this definitely was enjoyable. Once it hooked me, I quickly finished it not wanting to put it down for regular day chores. I plan on reading her other books ...
