It was a murder made for TV: a trail of tiny bloody footprints. An innocent toddler playing beside her mother's bludgeoned body. Pretty young Corinne Wolff, seven months pregnant, brutally murdered in her own home.
Cameras and questions don't usually faze Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson, but the media frenzy surrounding the Wolff case is particularly nasty…and thorough. When the seemingly model mommy is linked to an amateur porn Web site with underage actresses and unwitting players, the sharks begin to circle.
The shock is magnified when an old adversary uses the sexy secret footage to implicate Taylor in a murder—an accusation that threatens her career, her reputation and her relationship.
Both cases hinge on the evidence—real or manufactured—of crimes that go beyond passion, into the realm of obsessive vengeance and shocking betrayal. Just what the networks love.
Carefully orchestrated plot twists and engrossing characters combine in Ellison s explosive third Lt. Taylor Jackson investigation (after 2008 s 14). Nashville homicide investigator Taylor is called to the scene of a disturbing murder: beautiful, pregnant Corrine Wolff, brutally beaten in front of her young daughter. Signs point to Corinne s husband, Todd, but Taylor has her doubts. When she learns that the Wolffs were making and distributing amateur pornography, other investigators in her office turn up old X-rated footage of Taylor that could destroy her career and her engagement to FBI agent John Baldwin. Meanwhile, an old enemy of John s has resurfaced and is intent on revenge. The story moves at breakneck speed, seamlessly flowing from Taylor s world into John s until they intersect for electrifying results. Flawed yet identifiable characters and genuinely terrifying villains populate this impressive and arresting thriller.

Could be Better
The storyline and action was five star but the characters and writing ability of the author was sub-par. Too many times a lead female character has all the qualities of a macho male but is still able to criticize the male for the same things. Also, a sub-par author has to always throw in discriminatory scene against the white male species or a Christian group. In this case it was the totally upstanding, perfect, abused Muslim family that had their business firebombed by white bigoted males. Even though history has always proven the reverse action by said contributors, you will have these leftist liberal wanna be authors that always want to play the politically correct card. If you like this blame game, then purchase from this author, if not.........
