EDGE OF BLACK
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller
Ellison delivers another outstanding crime thriller that plays on many of a reader’s emotions: fear, love, hate and shock among them. It’s obvious from the first page that this is a master at work. Samantha is such a great character that Ellison can be forgiven for not writing another Taylor Jackson. Fans of Michael Connelly or Patricia Cornwell should consider Ellison essential reading.
Dr. Samantha Owens is adjusting to life in D.C. and away from the tragedy that killed her family. She enjoys teaching, and one morning in class a young woman has problems breathing and collapses. She rushes her to the hospital with the help of a couple of students and discovers, to her horror, that there are others there with the same symptoms. The only thing the victims seem to have in common is that they were all riding the Metro that morning. But what appears to be a terrorist attack has a mastermind behind it with a more sinister motive. (MIRA, Nov., 368 pp., $14.99)
