Suspense | Mystery

Critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling author J. T. Ellison delivers another riveting novel featuring the incomparable Dr. Samantha Owens

Waking to sirens in the night is hardly unusual for Samantha Owens. No longer a medical examiner, she doesn't lose sleep over them, but a routine police investigation in her neighborhood has her curious. When her homicide detective friend, Darren Fletcher, invites her to look over the evidence, she jumps at the chance and immediately realizes the crime scene has been staged. What seems to be a clear case of murder/suicide-a crime of passion-is anything but. The discovery of toxic substances in hidden vials indicates that something much more sinister is at play.…

As Fletch and Sam try to understand what and who they are dealing with, they are summoned to a meeting at the State Department. High- level officials are interested in what they know and seem to be keeping secrets of their own. It's up to Sam and Fletch to uncover what lies behind the deception as the threat of bioterrorism is exposed, and her boyfriend, Xander Whitfield, may be in the line of fire.

Unsure who to trust, Sam and Fletch find themselves up against very powerful people at every stage in the investigation. No one is who they appear to be and with every minute that passes, the danger escalates. It's Sam's most complex case yet and the terrifying reality is beyond anything she could have imagined.

Different places
(Marissa Yip-Young 6:43am November 23, 2015)

There are so many Authors that I've read, since most of them
have been by paperback as of late. The few that come to mind
are: Sandra Brown, Gerald Kubicki, Anne Girard, Cym Lowell,
and Cristianne Serruya. I'm looking forward to reading your
latest book as well. It sounds like a real page-turner!!
I've already put it on my TBR list. I hope that you have a
very Happy Thanksgiving!!
Peggy Roberson 10:10am November 23, 2015)

Oh good grief, I couldn't list them all but some are Susan
Elizabeth Phillips, Kay Hooper, Lee Child..
G. Bisbjerg 1:22pm November 23, 2015)

This is going back 20-30 years.... Diana Palmer, Tami Hoag,
Iris Johansen, Debbie Macomber, Joan Hoal, Catherine Coulter,
Nora Roberts...the list is endless
Kimberley Coover 2:44pm November 23, 2015)

I have discovered the majority of authors through paperbacks. It's only the special few authors (you included) that I purchase the hard cover versions. Some of the authors I've found via paperback are J.D. Robb, Margaret Maron, Harlan Coben, Deborah Crombie, and all of the Harlequin authors for the past eon :)
Sheri Jesse 5:18pm November 23, 2015)

Mofino, Burrowes, Tami Hoag and many more.
Sharon Berger 5:20pm November 23, 2015)

I think my favorite so far, who I discovered through paperback, Is J.A. Jance and her J.P Beaumont series, but then there's Susan Wittig Albert and her China Bayles series, and Stuart Woods and his Stone Barrington....I MUST many! So nice meeting you!
Kathleen Bylsma 6:04pm November 23, 2015)

Two writers I've read for a long time, and discovered in
paperback are Iris Johansen and John Sanford. They are still
automatic buys for me when one of their new books come out.
Trude Vandine 6:28pm November 23, 2015)

I have discovered Sandra Brown ,James Patterson ,Nora Roberts , Danielle Steel and all the great authors that are on Fresh Fiction . Too many to mention . Thanks for this giveaway and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving .
Joan Thrasher 7:06pm November 23, 2015)

I have discovered so many authors. I love Sandra Brown & Danielle Steel too. I love discovering new authors.
Lourie Staib 10:27pm November 23, 2015)

John Grisham was the first author I discovered through paperbacks. I take more risks with paperbacks. Books that I might not like.
Pam Howell 9:50am November 24, 2015)

Dean Koontz

I've discovered the works of YA authors C.C. Hunter, Cate Teirnan and Julie Anne Peters through paperback, as well as Jade Lee, yourself, and Nora Roberts. (Thanks to my Mother for that last one, she has almost every one of her books)
Asher Dane 10:37am November 25, 2015)

You, Sharon Sala, Cheryl Woods and many more!
Shirley Cochran 4:35pm November 25, 2015)

I mostly read paperbacks (they are so much easier to hold
while reading in bed) - here's a few authors I'v read more
recently for the first time: Hope Ramsay, Rhys Bowen, Nancy
Thayer - long time favorites are Nora Roberts, Catherine
Coulter, Elizabeth Lowell
Diane Sallans 11:54am November 26, 2015)

Paperbacks have taken me to so many interesting places and, through the background given in them, I've learned about many things that I had never thought about before. It amazing how much the authors include that extends my knowledge of the world.
Anna Speed 2:49pm November 26, 2015)

Can't wait to get this book and find out what is happening with Sam now. Thanks for the great books to read.
Christy Sipes 6:15pm November 26, 2015)

So many authors I can't even begin to list them all. I love
mysteries so Gemma Halliday, Addison Kline, Mary Ann Edwards. I
would love to read yours have not had a chance.
Denise Austin 7:00pm November 26, 2015)

I am a maniac reader. I usually have 3 to 5 books going at
the same time. One on the porch, one upstairs, one in the
bathroom and so on. I get confused about the authors names
but I can tell them after the first few pages. Like meeting
an old friend. Thank all of you for keeping my life
interesting and versatile.
