Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashville--but she's never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.

Later, he creatively disposes of the body by reenacting scenes from famous paintings. Strangely, similar macabre works are being displayed in Europe. Taylor teams up with her fiancé, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, and New Scotland Yard detective James "Memphis" Highsmythe--a haunted man who has eyes only for Taylor--to put an end to The Conductor's art collection.

Has the killer gone international? Or are there dueling artists, competing to create the ultimate masterpiece?

I have just started reading books by the author JT Ellison. She has also co-authored bookswith Catherine Coulter and this was how I found her. Have read several of her books the plots are very good and sometimes an unexpected twist. Good Reads!!

Great way to pass a few hours. The plot is complex, the bad guys are truly horrible & suspense builds til the end. Taylor is a smart, accomplished detective in her professional life but I wanted to smack her a few times because of how she acts in her personal life.

I found it very entertaining and fun until the end, where I thought the author went too far trying to twist the plot
