Field of Graves is the eighth published novel in the Taylor Jackson series, but it is actually a prequel to the earlier books.
I loved seeing the beginning of some of my favorite characters. Taylor, the Nashville lieutenant. Baldwin the FBI agent. Sam the ME. And Taylor’s team, Fitz, Lincoln and Marcus.
The book opens with Taylor dealing with an intruder in her home. She shoots the man, and discovers it was a fellow detective. Months later she is still dealing with how this affected her. She’s not sleeping, barely eating. But putting on a good front for her team.
Baldwin is on a sabbatical from the FBI following his own shootout with a bad guy. But in his, three of his own agents were killed. He has sunk into a deep dark place.
Both Taylor and Baldwin are dealing with tremendous guilt over the deaths.
It’s only when his boss calls in a favor to her boss, that puts these two together, do they both start to heal.
It was filled with plenty of action, suspense, mystery and a tiny bit of romance thrown in for good measure.
It’s well written and held my attention throughout.
I’m hoping for more books in this series. I really do love these stories and these characters.
Now, thank goodness, J.T. has returned to the series with a prequel which provides the back stories for most of the characters (certainly Taylor, John Baldwin and to some extent Sam) including members of Taylor's murder team. I am hoping that this means there will be more novels set after "Where All The Dead Lie"
Field of Graves was an exciting, well paced, fast read full of twists and turns as well full of fascinating forensic details. Overall this book is not as well polished as her later novels in the series. I was really surprised to read that publishers passed this one up! While not as gut wrenching as the first book in the series ("All The Pretty Girls") , it is still exciting and provides such a strong introduction to the primary and secondary characters who are all humanly flawed, quirky and so very relatable. The author provided an outstanding depiction of someone suffering from severe panic attacks and nightmares due to PTSD as well as of a person suffering from severe depression due to overwhelming guilt. I rated this 4.5. If this is your first Taylor Jackson, J.T. Ellison read do yourself a special kindness and start reading all of the Taylor Jackson and Samantha Owens series but read them in order. Enjoy yourself, you deserve it.
As a confirmed, solid Taylor Jackson and Samantha Owens fan, I am so looking froward to seeing where J.T. Ellison will take us next!
Dr. John Baldwin, on sabbatical from the FBI, is fighting his own demons. He has decided to play a deadly game with his own rules to end it all. Then he’s coerced to consult on the potential serial killer.
This thriller with just a touch of romance, makes excellence use of the setting and a large cast of interesting characters. Plenty of twists and a mastery of the hook. I’ll be looking for previous volumes in this series.

I just hope that there will be more stories to follow on from this one to Pretty Girls. This was so much better than her last stand alone novel.
