I've been waiting and waiting and waiting to share the new Taylor Jackson with y'all... and I think it's finally time. I am so excited about this book. It was incredibly fun to write, and Mira came up with a brilliant cover and a whole new format, trade paperback. So it's a triply special book.
Fair warning: if you haven't finished SO CLOSE THE HAND OF DEATH, there is a small spoiler ahead.
Get ready for a whole different side of Taylor Jackson....
The headshot didn't kill Taylor Jackson.
But it will haunt.
In her showdown with the murderous Pretender, a bullet taken at close range severed the connection between Taylor’s thoughts and speech. Effectively mute, there’s no telling if her voice will ever come back. Trapped in silence, she is surrounded by ghosts—of the past, of friendships and trusts lost—of the specter of a lost faith in herself and her motives that night.
When Memphis Highsmythe offers Taylor his home in the Scottish highlands to recuperate, her fiancé John Baldwin can’t refuse her excitement, no matter his distrust of the man. At first, Memphis’s drafty and singularly romantic castle seems the perfect place for healing. But shortly the house itself surrounds her like a menacing presence. As Taylor’s sense of isolation and vulnerability grows, so, too, does her grip on reality.
PTSD. Pills. Ghosts. Grudges.
Someone or something is coming after Taylor. But is she being haunted by the dead...or hunted by the living?
