Like an archaeological dig, The Roth Trilogy strips away the past to reveal the menace lurking in the present: ‘Taylor has established a sound reputation for writing tense, clammy novels that perceptively penetrate the human psyche’ – Marcel Berlins, The TimesThe shadow of past evil hangs over the present in Andrew Taylor's Roth Trilogy as he skilfully traces the influences that have come to shape the mind of a psychopath.Beginning, in The Four Last Things, with the abduction of little Lucy Appleyard and a grisly discovery in a London graveyard, the layers of the past are gradually peeled away through The Judgement of Strangers and The Office of the Dead to unearth the dark and twisted roots of a very immediate horror that threatens to explode the serenity of Rosington's peaceful Cathedral Close.

Secrets, safety and near seclusion are the mortar with which Geneva Talmadge has fabricated a life. Having lived and worked all over the world in areas where the commodities are war, perfidy and poverty, Geneva is an exceptional and unusual protagonist. Brought into a life of danger, bomb making and terrorists as a young girl, after the death of her mother, Geneva doesn't just trail behind her father and his associates. Geneva excels; she's a natural at munitions and bomb building. In fact, she surpasses her father in the ability to create bombs of piercing precision and beautiful artistry of design. A life full of so much danger and secrecy could have hardened Geneva Talmadge but she isn't the jaded war damaged individual that she could have been. However she is not unscathed. Geneva has built an emotional fortress around herself fully equipped with snares designed to protect herself from the greatest danger, a heart fragmented by rejection and love lost. Then Thomas Coltrane comes into her life, storming the ramparts of her defenses. There is no gentle seduction, no slow attraction, and no long entrance ramp. Thomas and Geneva's first meeting is metaphor for the battle Thomas will wage to circumvent her protective countermeasures. Thomas is marred from an extremely successful career as a litigator. His blade sharp skills have led to his notoriety in the courtroom and his love life fodder for the tabloids but he has grown weary and lonely of an emotionally unfulfilling life. Decision made, he returns to his childhood home for a simpler way of life when he literally collides into Geneva. Thomas goes after Geneva with the same exactness that he unleashed on his courtroom adversaries. But years of hiding have left Geneva guarded and reticent. She is a paradox. Her life experiences and skills could have, should have led her to be one tough cookie. But she isn't. Though baptized into a world of mayhem and calloused mercenaries, Geneva managed to retain a fragile innocence, a delicate vulnerability, that Thomas must traverse to win her heart and trust. Fallen Angel is a passion laced story that is both captivating and frustrating in a good way. Laura Taylor drives the story, first gear, second gear; the story is paced perfectly to engage the reader to turn the page. For Laura Taylor fans and those new to this series, you will not be disappointed. Geneva and Thomas' story is a soft susurration that compels the reader to root for them when old scars and reflexive defenses threaten to detonate, ending their relationship before it's truly born. You won't be dissatisfied. Laura Taylor's, Fallen Angel, has it all, love, steam and more. Reviewed by: Sallie Lundy-Frommer Author of Yesterday's Daughter
