The Devil's Triangle (A Brit in the FBI) - Catherine Coulter,J.T. Ellison

There was a lot of rip roaring action going on while I read this book. And it did not stop. Evil twins set out to rule the world and anybody who got in their way, family or not, they would be dealt with. These twins were psycho. Their grandfather had found a way to control the weather. However, he wasn't using it like they thought he should.

The FBI had ticked them off and they wanted a tsunami, the biggest one ever, to hit Washington, D.C. Their grandfather just wasn't listening to them. They had to find a way to get him to listen to them. They knew he kept the answer they needed in his vault. They just needed to get in there and get it.

Prior to that, they also knew that they were the last Koath's alive. They also knew that if they found the Ark of the Covenant they would have powers greater than any known to man. Their mission was to find that Ark. No matter how many hundreds of thousands dead it took to do so.

Naturally a team of FBI were called in. This team were the good guys and they seemed pretty cool and had worked together before. Of course, they were very likable and I was cheering them on from the very beginning.

Yes, this book had me on the edge of my seat and I was whipping through those pages, holding my breath, sometimes having to go back and making sure that yes, I did read that right. The good guys were in the lake and they almost lost one. My pulse was going so fast that I reading faster than I could comprehend, I was so nervous for my friends trying to take these evil twins down. And the race through the tunnels, I thought I was going to need a defibrillator. My mind couldn't keep up with the words. It was so intense! Yes, this was definitely a great book.

Thanks to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

Review – No One Knows by J T Ellison @thrillerchick
No One Knows - J.T. Ellison

I am familiar with J T Ellison and I do love this gorgeous cover for No One Knows, so there was no doubt that I wanted to read this.

 

I love covers and saw No One Knows has two. Myself, I like this one the best. Scroll to the end of the post and let me know which you prefer?

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

No One Knows by J T Ellison is worth reading for the ending alone!

 

Aubrey’s ex is declared dead, but I know I have to ask, “Is her really?”

 

Daisy, her mother in law, needs to get a life. She is a miserable bitch. Is there a sinister reason his mother insists on declaring him dead? I am curious and very suspicious.

 

First the accusations, then the waiting, waiting, waiting for him to come home.

 

Josh and Aubrey are both kinda wimpy. I just wanted to tell them to buck up and get over themselves.

 

Aubrey needs to quit her whining and move on. I find it hard to put myself in her shoes. I love her carefree friend, Meghan, a true free spirit that will drop everything when Aubrey needs her.

 

I have a feeling Josh is far from perfect. And shortly after writing that, I felt that if I never heard of him again I would be happy, but I am still curious.

 

The back and forth, past and present got a bit annoying and disrupted the flow. The chapters were short and I no sooner got involved then I’d have to change gears.

 

Okay, I like this isn’t going quite the direction I thought. I do like a twist in my stories.

 

Another twist in the tale and it is a doozy. Marvelous, simply marvelous.

 

I had been disappointed with the first part of the book. I had felt before I even began reading it would be better, because I have read some of her other work. Now, I have finally come to what I have been waiting for and I”m a little more than halfway through.

 

OMG. I so missed the ending. Totally got me. My mouth is hanging open and I have a smile on my face for the fantastic, creative and mind boggling ending. That last 10% was so suspenseful, with twist and turns that kept on coming.

 

Could there be another Jewel story? I can see her…..

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free ARC copy from Net Galley of No One Knows by J T Ellison.

Field of Graves
Field of Graves (A Taylor Jackson Novel) - J.T. Ellison
Taylor Jackson Series #8 Prequel
ISBN:  9780778318927
Publisher: MIRA
Publication Date: 6/14/2016
Format: Hardcover 
My Rating:  4 Stars 

 

A special thank you to MIRA and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Talented thriller author, J.T. Ellison returns following her standalone, No One Knows (2016) with FIELD OF GRAVES(Taylor Jackson #8 Prequel), as she takes readers back to some of her favorite characters: Taylor Jackson (Homicide), Dr. Samantha Owens, (Autopsies-ME) and Profiler Dr. John Baldwin (Former FBI profiler).

Also, Captain Price, detective Pete (Fitz) Fitzgerald, Detective Lincoln Ross and Detective Marcus Wade.

It is Nashville, Tennessee and a serial killer is on the loose. Vanderbilt college students. Why are these murders happening? A message?

Taylor is having dreams of a field of graves. From panic attacks and nightmares. Baldwin in brought in as a consultant and he has his own demons.

Lieutenant Taylor Jackson, Criminal Investigation division, Nashville Metro Police. A promotion to lieutenant at age thirty-four. Cops always tried to make her life difficult, since she was a chick. A tough smart one. Martin ruined her life and nearly derailed her career. She was still clawing her way back.

Ellison gives readers the background of Jackson and how the team came together. All your favorite characters. Sam spent her time perched over Nashville’s dead bodies, and Taylor’s best friend. Taylor’s group was unique. “The Murder Squad.” In Nashville, Homicide covered the full gamut of physical crimes.

What made Taylor’s team different from Nashville’s other homicide detectives was the element of mystery in their jobs. If a violent crime occurred that resulted in a death, and there was no suspect, they caught the case. If the trail went cold after 24 hrs. it was theirs. It fell in their laps. She was proud of her team with a high close rate.

However, success was always tempered with a desire to see failure. She had made a lot of friends when she killed David Martin, even though he was dirty. No one wanted to see a cop dead, even if he was a bad guy. He had tried to kill her first.

Ellison fans will delight with the compelling fast pace suspense. From mystery and intrigue, forensics, profiling, with flawed characters, and as always plenty of wit to balance the dark side. Enjoyed revisiting with Taylor and Sam!

Fans of Mary Burton’s Morgans of Nashville Series will enjoy!

No One Knows - J.T. Ellison

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good book with twist and turns. This book was definitely one of those books! Now, while I enjoyed the read and the constant suspense, this book was just OK for me. I really enjoyed the side romance plot, the hatred between some characters, and the action that was riddled within the story.

 

This book starts off with a woman who had lost her husband. Literally, he disappeared! Our main character Aubrey went to a party with her husband and by the end of the night, when they found her apartment drenched in the blood of her husband, she was being accused of murder.

 

 

The story starts as soon as her husband is being declared dead by the state. We go through the turmoil Aubrey faced the night her husband disappeared, as well as the tragically romantic beginning to her and her husband’s relationship.

 

Through all of this, a man shows up that is just like her husband. His movements, his personality, everything about this man reminds her of his husband. Of course, he has secrets and we find out about him when the book switches to his point of view.

 

One of the things I did like about this book was the different point of views it was told in. We got to see things through Aubrey’s view, the mysterious man, the mother in law, and the disappearing husband. One of the things I didn’t like was the way that Aubrey was actually nice to her mother in law. The lady who accused her of murder and tried to ruin her life, literally up until the plot twist at the end of the story. Screw that.

Now, I like plot twists. They keep me intrigued and interested in the story. Having said that, I prefer my plot twists to happen before the end of the friggin’ story!!! I mean, you don’t actually find out what happens until the VERY END OF THE BOOK! Drove me crazy, but it kept me reading the book.

 

This book was an OK read for me. I liked the in depth development of the side characters, the variety of point of views, and the late, but oh so interesting twist at the end of the book. If you are looking for a story with strong romantic elements to it, this book is not for you.

While there is some romance with Aubrey and the mystery man, it is not that intense or detailed. However, if you want a good mystery with shady characters that you love to hate, or a book to read that will keep you interested while you need to kill some time, this is a read for you.

Who can you trust?
No One Knows - J.T. Ellison

When I first started reading No One Knows I really felt bad for Aubrey Hamilton. Her husband is missing presumed dead and she was accused of murdering him. She seemed so meek and timid and a really likeable woman. Years later her husband is declared dead and I felt, great, now she can get on with her life, maybe the grieving will end and she can find happiness. 

Well as in other novels by J.T.Ellison you have to expect some twists and turns to the story. She delivers in No One Knows. Not all is as it appears as we soon find out. Some likeable characters, some not so likeable and a believable plot with lots of questions. What really happened to Josh Hamilton? This novel will grab you right from the beginning and keep you until the you never see it coming ending. A psychological mystery/thriller at it's best.
