Overview

The No. 1 Amazon.com Bestseller (US & UK)

A young woman is found, brutally murdered and left on gruesome display in the "safety" of her own home. The atrocity kicks off an investigation into a bizarre string of increasingly disturbing murders, all believed to be perpetrated by someone of unprecedented savagery and cunning.

As the city's panic rises, civil attorney Teddy Mack is thrown headlong into the grisly homicide case-and into a world of dirty politics and corrupt justice, where deceptions are as deadly as the killer's twisted secrets. Now, another woman is about to meet the same horrific fate as the others. To end a madman's reign, Teddy must enter his maze-a place of unimaginable terror and shocking revelations.

With his second thriller, L.A. TIMES bestselling author, Robert Ellis, delivers an explosive read with full-blown characters caught in a world stacked with twists and turns and an emotional intensity that burns white-hot.

THE DEAD ROOM serves as the high-octane introduction to CITY OF FIRE, and remains a truly one of a kind find.

A young woman is found horribly mutilated in her family's home and a young corporate attorney is forced by his boss to represent the heinous defendant. Unwillingly thrown into the world of criminal law, the lawyer must re-educate himself while simultaneously dealing with the ambitious district attorney who sees this case as a career-maker. In this excellent thriller from Robert Ellis, you will be reminded of the best of Thomas Harris and even Michael Crichton. Having read Ellis' first novel, "Access to Power," I am amazed at the breadth of his writing skills. The first book was a taut political thriller about a cynical veteran campaign consultant enmeshed in a murder. Now, with "The Dead Room," he has effortlessy shifted gears to create a crime thriller that had me riveted to the page. I heartily recommend this book!

Young lawyer who takes on a murder case where evidence is overwhelming against his client. The lawyer gets into all kinds of situations that threaten his life. Likelable characters, well written. Lots of suspenseful twists and turns, and a shocking ending. Well written, and I will definitely read more from this author!

It took me a while to get into this book, but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it. And the ending...well, let's just say that I never saw it coming. ;) I definitely recommend this book.
