    I really love this author and both her series so this is kind of a bummer What Lies Behind was okay but it wasn't the best use of my time Any reader with a job or a family and every day life to contend with knows that there is nothing worse than a story that wastes the limited amount of reading hours we have And this book teetered very dangerously on that line The last Owens series book felt the same way too What is going on Ellison? Two in a row?The story was kind of interesting and I do love the characters of Dr Samantha Owens LT Fletcher and Xander but if you read this as a standalone which is possible I can see it being hard for the reader to find an emotional footing Personal moments are limited there's not much going on between the characters to connect a first time reader to make them care about the outcome of their lives What moments were peppered throughout the chapters were cliche and corny almost soap opera y instead of sweet and funny or tense or romanticCorny and cliche never seems like real life And books like this need to feel real even when the plot really already out there The truthiness of the characters is the anchor The plot while paced perfectly was too technical I had a difficult time following all the players on the board and how their stories connected The last Sam Owens book was the same hard to follow but the complexity of this story was dialed up to eleven The ArmyGovernmentTerrorism angle the Sam Owens books have leaned and towards isn't really doing it for me I don't buy that a former ME and a local police LT are really going to save the world from her living room I'm going to read the next one because I don't give up on my fandoms and because the teaser at the end involving the Hometown Killer piued my interest the way the sound of a bag of chips opening does Just when you think you're done with a mildly boring book Ellison gives you a shock That kind of twisty writing is what she's good at I just wish this book had of it The mysterious serial killer Beauty was probably the best part of all 400 pages and he was only in it a couple of times This is the world's most okayest government terrorism standalone thriller But as part of a series with the grabbing cliffhanger ending it was good So I'm splitting the difference three ☆☆☆

    While I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Samantha Owens books this one is my favorite to date I loved everything about this book As usual it was great to read about Sam and Xander and they were given a great storyline The story was fast paced and had lots of action I really liked the way the storylines with Sam and Xander connected and came together at the end I enjoyed the direction that things went with Sam's career and it was great to have her working with Baldwin and the FBI as well as with Fletcher I also enjoyed seeing the glimpse of Taylor Jackson in this oneWhen Sam Owen's sleep is disturbed due to sirens and police activity in her neighborhood it isn't long before she is involved in the investigation What first appears to be a murdersuicide attempt where the perpetrator survived becomes complicated when it is found that the victim is a deep undercover FBI agent who also works with the CIA As Sam investigates with Fletcher who is sent in as the homicide detective by Washington DC a tale of possible bioterrorism begins to emerge This was a very exciting story and it kept me engrossed I loved the characters both the main and secondary ones I really like the direction the author is taking the series so far and I really hope we don't have to wait long for the next book I am very anxious to see where the author goes with the dangling threads from this book

    Former medical examiner newly minted FBI agent Dr Samantha Owens along with her friend DC homicide detective Lieutenant Darren Fletcher have just been handed the most baffling bloody case by her new boss John Baldwin also her best friend’s fiancée What at first appears to be a domestic dispute gone deadly is really something all together different They discover the victims; a dead undercover FBI agent and an expelled medical student barely hanging on to life apparently unlikely partners on an anti bioterrorism unit for the US State Department and what’s meant to look like a murder suicide is in reality all staged by the killer What the murder was about and what the killer was looking for is what Sam and Fletch need to find out because they’re afraid the body count could rise Unfortunately the red tape and smoke and mirrors DC is famous for is tying their hands and adding uestions instead of supplying answersMeanwhile Sam’s love former Army Ranger Xander Whitfield and his new partner are on their first personal protection assignment they’re protecting a British industrialist in the states for business and find themselves involved in taking out a sniper with a long ranged gun pointing at their client It’s a good thing they stopped the bad guy because the alternative would be very bad for business But now they need to see if the sniper was working alone and just who wants their client dead and whyWhere do I start telling how wonderful this was do I start by giving it the 6 out of 5 stars it deserves? Do I start by saying what an adrenalin rush this nail biting page turning one sitting tale is so that by the end readers will need to breathe into a brown paper bad to stop hyperventilating? Or do I start by saying how incredible the characters are how three dimensional how vividly each one portrays his or her good guy or bad guy roles? Maybe I should start by saying how the fast paced in your face dialogue a mix of cop doc speak adds not only to the excitement but gives it that indelible authentic feel too Or maybe it's the author I should start with how everything that comes out of her fervent incredibly creative albeit a bit morbid brain never ceases to amaze me and that she gets better with each story she tells Or I know I’ll say how incredibly explosive the ending is how the entire book happens in one event filled day and how there’s a mind blowing cliffhanger right before; The End Yeah that’s what I’ll sayJT wow you amaze me utterly and unbelievably

    Another good read by JT Ellison love her Dr Samantha Owens seriesThis book takes off and doesn't stop a spy versus spy type of book Well written lots of twists and turns and a red herring or two thrown in to boot Two stories develop then merge into one set in Washington DC FBI local police secret service how many forces does it take to solve this spree and terrorist activitiesBodies start piling up but who is the killers that's the big uestion throughout; and who is on the sidelines watching all this take place2 thumbs up and a solid 45 stars

    It's kind of like a family reunion of sorts Samantha is now teaching at a college in DC and working occasionally as a consult for the FBI Darren Fletcher has also relocated to the DC area and now is a LT in the Homicide Department of the local policeWhen a suspected murdersuicide happens on the street where Samantha lives they are reunited when they both come to the same conclusion this was stagedWhat looks like a simple case of a domestic dispute turns into international intrigue and a possible bioterror attack And who is that shadowy figure that is watching Samantha's every move?I've read most of the TaylorBaldwin series and really enjoyed them I've read most of the Samantha Owens series and this is the first one I did not get excited over The characters are the same but the story itself just did not grab me I actually found it a little boring somewhere in the middle of the book and flipped through a few pages to get to somewhere interesting That being said I'm hoping this is just an anomaly for me I'm still planning on getting the next one because the hints I got from this one makes me happily waiting for the next chapter of their lives

    I LOVED the rich cast of characters Each one was deeply human real and I found myself fully and emotionally invested in them not always typical for a thriller Ellison had me guessing nearly until the end but she wove the divergent threads together masterfully and in a way that felt organic natural And oh my goodness what a spot to leave a protagonist in I am definitely hooked for the next Sam Owens story

    What Lies Behind's story is told by the viewpoint of the Medical Examiner Samantha Owens whose character is flawed but she is very intelligent and brave The plot is complexed and deals with a stalker who may be a serial killer who is hunting a prey It also involves a bio terrorist threat and a governmental pyramid scheme It is a very gripping story with lots of twists and has a cliffhanger ending This is the last book of the series so far and the series is a spinoff from the Taylor Jackson series I look forward to the next book in the series in order to find out how everything pans out I would highly recommend this series to those who love adventurous mystery thrillers

I love that fact that Ms Ellison's books are edited so amazingly well There's not a slew of typographical errors or messed up pages ebook or redundancies That's just classy imo No matter how good a story is if it's chalk full of the the or misspellings or the same adjectives over and over etc I'm not going to enjoy it as much I'm know I'm not yet very good at reviewing I'm trying to learn I do hope other mystery loving readers like myself will give ANY of JT Ellison's books a go They could easily be read out of order I'm just very TYPE A and prefer to stay in the order of publication when it's possible If you're considering trying out the Taylor books or Sam's series I really really think you'll be pleased Ms Ellison is a damn fine author PeriodThanks for stopping by always ☺️ CheersLisa NurseLisainOhio
