About the Author

After Elizabeth S. Sullivan earned her JD while working full-time teaching English she decided to follow the advice she gave to students: follow your passion and your work will not be a job. She continued to teach, left the law behind to embrace her passion, writing. She has written five screenplays, one short, and has worked as a script doctor. She is thrilled to publish her first novel. Elizabeth has won screenplay competitions and has been a semifinalist twice, in the prestigious Nicholl competition, which garnered Elizabeth a manager in Beverly Hills. Her passions are movies, reading, politics, the environment and the two most important people in her life, Kalen and Ashley.

Liz Sullivan has created a story that haunts the reader with its realism, its raw emotion, and its grab you by the throat pacing. Beck Oldman finds herself dealing with a nightmare killer, someone who preys on teenage girls with efficient, calculated sadism. Beck herself lives her own nightmare while trying to stop another: she is a disbarred lawyer plagued by her past and her own flaws. In a book that deserves a place on the bookshelf of any mystery, thriller, or crime reader, we have a heroine who finds herself dealing with an antagonist who makes Hannibal the Cannibal from the Silence of The Lambs seem like a genial neighbor. Purified never averts its eyes from the darkest side of lost souls or damaged hopes. The story continually raises the stakes to a point that is beyond razor sharp. It is a page turner and I look forward to reading the next book by this talented writer.

I am pretty selective regarding my book purchases - even though I love to read, I'm retired and on a budget. The reviews for this book swayed me to click the buy button and I am glad that I did. This is simply a riveting story that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish.
If you like suspense reads - this one will leave you reeling and you'll think about it after you finish reading it.
I will be looking for more books by this author - well worth every cent spent.

I was looking for a new writer of suspense, and clicked on the first few pages of Purified. I immediately ordered the book. Right away I was totally involved in the plot, I really liked the character Beck. She is very relatable. The writer created some very tense, scary, and creepy situations, The ending was completely unexpected. This was a chilling and suspenseful read.

I will for sure be giving this book as gifts this Christmas, and I hope to see more stories with Beck Oldman, and more writings from Ms. Sullivan.

Gripping! This is not normally my genre, but the book was recommended as a great first novel by someone like me--an English teacher who follows her dream to be a writer. My hat is off to Ms Sullivan--I took early retirement to write; she works full-time and managed to write this spellbinding who-done-it with a social conscience--wonderful! It reminds me a bit of PD James' novels, and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series and perhaps "The Alienist"--creepy dark side of our human nature--but with a ray of hope! Flawed but very human protagonists as intriguing as the plot itself--read it!

'Purified’ is a Deaver style, dark, fast paced, spellbinding thriller that definitely keeps the reader guessing. Its characters are original, fascinating and multidimensional. Elizabeth S. Sullivan's descriptions are absolutely captivating. Positively some of the best I had ever read. Purified picks the reader up at page one, and does not put him/her down up until the very end. What a great, entertaining ride! I could not put this book down.

An impressive thriller novel, I could not put it down till the end. The author entertained me throughout the read. The suspense and the mystery always make me excited and this novel did the same.

Great composition and character organization, I loved it. A fast paced story and an ultimate page turner.
