 J.T. Ellison already has 8 critically acclaimed novels under her belt that have been published in more than 20 countries. She has also been nominated for and won several awards for her books. Her latest book, “A Deeper Darkness,” follows a medical examiner named Samantha Owens, who has been requested to perform a second autopsy on someone connected to her. The requestor is her former boyfriend’s mother and the subject is Major Edward Donovan, who was the victim of a carjacking gone wrong. There’s more to the story than the obvious and the only way to find out how everything unfolds is to read this great book.

Samantha is a spin-off character from Ellison’s previous books, but J.T. does an excellent job of getting you to personally know Samantha if this is the first book you are reading. J.T. also does a great job of introducing the other characters in the book and intertwining their stories to show their connections to the death of Major Edwards and their possible involvement. With all the twists and surprises, this book had me trying to figure out what would happen next. It was a good read and the 400 pages seemed to zoom on by because I enjoyed it so much. I don’t say this often, but I would read this again just for the fun of it.

I have never heard of J.T. Ellison, but am a true fan after reading “A Deeper Darkness.” I highly recommend reading this book if you love suspenseful books that will keep you on edge. I plan on reading her other books and can’t wait to see what she comes out with next. For those reasons, I am giving this book an “A.”
