Judas Kiss is the third novel featuring Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson. This is the first one that I have read, although after having read this one, I will find and read the first 2. The story line of this book reminds me of “Women’s Murder Club” series by James Patterson. As Joanne knows, these types of books are easy reading for me.

Taylor is main character, who is pragmatic, moral, compassionate, strong - some would say to the point of being intractable. In Taylor's world there are black hats and white hats, good versus evil.

Taylor has a relationship with her FBI profiler significant other evolves over the course of the book – it deepens and becomes more permanent. Her private life becomes very much in the public spotlight and she has a tough time dealing with it.

Judas Kiss deals with sensitive topics such as pornography and the murder of a pregnant mother all in the traditionally "safe" setting of suburbia. I understand this book to be based upon a true story, which took place in North Carolina (which was never solved). The book opens with the grisly murder scene of a young murdered pregnant mother, and her child (2 year old) was with her when she was violently murdered. The murder was not found for 2 days, and the young child was left alone with her mother. Not a pretty scene with the bloody footprints of the child left through out the house.

The book features a lot of realistic details about police procedure and forensics. Yes, Taylor Jackson does solve the murder. Judas Kiss was a quick read and the first that I had read by the author, J.T Ellison, who was recommended to me by a friend.

I'm curious, who recommended this to you? I think this topic is fun and am still trying to figure out who to approach to recommend a book for me! How did you decide?

Carolyn,

I am so sorry - I did not see your question. A past neighbor, who I stay in contact with, told me I might like reading books from this author. She knew that I enjoy books of this type and she was right.
