"A page-turning potboiler. We like this book! The tone is a fusion of James Ellroy and James Carville."
-- Philadelphia Daily News
"Before you can say 'Chinatown' we are immersed in a tale of mind-boggling corruption where virtually every character in the book has a hidden agenda. Ellis is a master plotter."

What's New, July 2017
I can't say how happy I am that the audio edition of THE DEAD ROOM is finally here. The novel is narrated by Jim McCance, the read so chilling, I couldn't sleep. I hope you enjoy this truly remarkable interpretation of one of my favorite novels.
In January 2014 the rights to a German language edition of THE DEAD ROOM were acquired by AmazonCrossing in Europe. The translation was completed in June, the book went into production, and is now available for purchase. With more than 500 FIVE STAR reviews in the US, this is my most personal story. THE DEAD ROOM is truly the mother lode.
"Ellis' powerhouse of a novel ... Ellis keeps everything in focus while building a staggering momentum."
-- Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"CITY OF ECHOES is a dark, gritty, one-sit read. Ellis' trademark plotting is on full display here."
"Only really good writers can make you feel so strongly. CITY OF ECHOES is another bravura effort from the talented Robert Ellis."
-- Mystery Scene
"CITY OF ECHOES is an absorbing and entertaining read from first page to last and documents novelist Robert Ellis as a master of the genre."
-- Midwest Book Review
"Scorching. Deliciously twisted. Nothing is what it appears to be. Ellis succeeds masterfully in both playing fair and pulling surprise after surprise in a story that feels like a runaway car plunging down a mountain road full of switchbacks."
"Ellis serves up a killer crime tale with riveting characters and relentless twists."
"Los Angeles, under a cloud of acrid smoke. Robert Ellis´s CITY OF FIRE is a gripping, spooky crime novel."
"CITY OF FIRE is my kind of crime novel. Gritty, tight and assured."
-- Michael Connelly
"CITY OF FIRE features a tough but deeply flawed protagonist, a tantalizingly complex plot, fully realized -- and realistic -- characters, and most of all, a palpable intensity. And if that weren't enough, the bombshell plot twist at the novel's conclusion makes this an absolute must read for thriller aficionados."
In October 2013 a Spanish translation of CITY OF FIRE came out as CIUDAD DE FUEGO, the reviews wonderful. This past week a Kindle edition was released. I'd been hoping this would happen, and it finally did. I'm jazzed about the whole thing, including the cover art which I think is terrific.
THE LOVE KILLINGS is a continuation of CITY OF ECHOES, the story set six weeks later when a new series of gruesome murders occur in Philadelphia. All evidence points to the killer who fled LA, a man of unprecedented savagery and cunning. LAPD Detective Matt Jones is recruited by a federal prosecutor to join the FBI's special task force in the hunt for this brutal mass killer.
