Overview

Registered sex offenders in Treasure Valley have started showing up dead, killed with apparent violence and forethought; and Detective Nate Richards finds himself pitted against a psychotic killer set on ridding the valley of the unclean.
When Chrystal Johansson, the only female on the killer's list, barely escapes the attempt on her life, Richards takes her into protective custody. Driven by a voice he calls God and a group of men he calls the Uncles, the killer sets a deadline of two weeks to complete the valley's cleansing.

Around him, the community divides about the actions of the vigilante. Some hail the killer as a modern day knight, only doing what they wish they could; while others curse him as being part of the sickness he claims to fight.

With the deadline quickly approaching, and the city threatening to tear itself apart, will the killer fulfill his calling or will Nate stop the killings before another victim turns up DEAD RIGHT THERE.

Editorial Reviews

D.R.T. - Dead Right There - Print edition - Peter Leavell
DRT is fast paced novel that puts the reader in the seat next to Nate Richards. The author’s in-depth police knowledge gives the sense of standing in the private meetings of the detectives, as well as in the station with the investigators as they sort through evidence. But be prepared to dodge bullets and chase bad guys.
DRT is a worthy second in the Nate Richards series. If you’re a fan of modern police shows, as well as plot twists and turns, DRT is for you.
D.R.T. - Dead Right There - Print edition - Vincent Zandri
Ray Ellis’s D.R.T. (Dead Right There) is one of those rare crime novels that not only keeps you teetering on the edge of your chair, but reminds you that the jagged line between good and evil is as narrow and painful as the razor’s edge. Penned with blood red imagery and the haunting grace of an old poet, this young author is sure to thrill legions of fans for years to come.

This is an excellent book. The characters come to life and deal with real life issues. Being a Christian and retired law enforcement officer I know what it is like to be criticized by my peers for my beliefs. Ellis also showed the internal struggles that we Christians go through as well. Ellis is an up and coming star and I look forward to the next book.
