Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashville—from the Southern Strangler to the Snow White Killer. 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.

When he's finished, he creatively disposes of the body by reenacting scenes from famous paintings. And similar macabre works are being found in Europe. Taylor teams up with her fiancee, 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 this horror.

Has the killer gone international with his craft? Or are there two "artists," competing to create the ultimate masterpiece?

What the Critics Say

"Fusing gritty cop drama with dark psychological thriller, Ellison distinguishes herself with exceptional character development, consistently breakneck pacing and a sense of authenticity throughout." (Chicago Tribune)

    "Chilling Spellbinder"

    What a wild ride this story took me on - I couldn't stop listening and spent many days hurrying through my work so I could resume listening. Loved this book and the narration!

    "The Cold Room"

    Looking at the cover of the book I though that it was going to be a good story. I was very disappointed.It lacks the intensity, the mystery and the suspense to keep the listeners on the edge.

    Story
    "Had it's Creepy Moments..."
    Would you listen to The Cold Room again? Why?

    Probably if I had absolutely nothing new to listen to!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The author captured the unusual crime really well and therefore I enjoyed the thrill of the chase.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, as she does make the lead character of Taylor her own.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but it was intriguing in parts.

    Story
    "The Cold Room Left Me Cold"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I can't decide if it was the story line or the reader that put me off of this audiobook. The story line threw too much right off at you. The reader's voice was annoying. I didn't finish the book.


    Has The Cold Room turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO


    What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

    Tone of voice not appropriate for this story. Sounds sexist, but a man would have served this story better.
