The Cold Room
by J.T. Ellison
This police procedural involves Nashville police detective Taylor Jackson, her fiancé Dr. John Baldwin, an FBI profiler and a New Scotland Yard inspector. The murders are brutal. Afterwards, the killer stages the victims to look like famous works of art. Inspector James "Memphis" Highsmythe flies from London at Baldwin's request to help with the investigation because the same murderer appears to have killed in Great Britain. His instant infatuation with Taylor (she resembles his dead wife) is creepy. Jackson struggles with her demotion within the Nashville Police Department. She misses leading her own team of investigators and she locks horns with her new lieutenant. To add to the stress in Taylor's life is The Pretender, a serial killer who stalking Taylor. He called Taylor to let her know that he was not involved in these murders and that he is still out there and watching. This is fourth book in this series. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Alex Kava and Lisa Gardner.]
